The noisy alarm goes off. I roll over, back aching and body just not ready to get up. Begrudgingly, I stand and walk to the bathroom. Flip on the light switch. Yikes. The mirror reflects tired eyes…dry scalp…blemishes…a stuffed nose. Sleeping with my mouth open has left a nasty breathe. Lovely.

I could stand here for the next 5 minutes and criticize. I could feel bad that I didn’t accomplish enough yesterday. I could be angry at myself for not getting up earlier today. I could go down an endless path of degradation. Wishing I was more XX and hoping I could be less XX. But what good is that? How does putting myself down help anything? Making me feel bad will not solve any problems…and worse, gives other people the freedom to confirm my faults.

Instead, take a deep breathe. This is you. The only body you will get. The only mind you will get. The only life you will get. It’s time to take care of you.

Maybe there are changes within your control. Perhaps you want to eat better? Get more sleep? Start a daily skin routine? These are possible.

And maybe there are changes out of your (easy) control. Don’t like your nose? Short of plastic surgery, embrace it. Don’t like your family? Have a discussion with them…or if that won’t work, limit your interaction.

Anything you’re not entirely happy with, begin to make small steps towards a positive change. And remember to be kind to yourself.

Today is a NEW day.
