I change the wallpaper on my phone--usually weekly. I have a collection of inspirational memes, pretty pictures, holiday themed images, just a ton of stuff I have collected on Pinterest.
So, as this is coming hot on the heels of my 65th birthday (on Easter no less), I thought I'd go for inspirational. It's been a very stressful year--for many of us, but I think I maybe have had a tad more than the average "Year of Covid" than some. My beloved husband died last May. I have been forced into retirement which I wasn't ready for either emotionally or financially. The list goes on.
But I digress.
Back to the inspirational wallpaper. The inspiration was: Eat like you love yourself. This has been a recurrent theme in my life. I always felt like my weight was directly related to self love and lack thereof.
So, given that I am trying to put self love into action, I managed to gain a pound this week. I watched myself not eat like I love myself, but instead indulged my abused inner child.
I ask myself, yet again, Why?
