I’ve been learning how to be okay with having less of a handle on my body, or maintaining a “schedule” to keep it all “together.”
I’ve been sick for a week & I’ve slowed down to notice how it’s made me feel: weaker & not in control. Plus, now I’m in New York for another 7 days.
SO–here we are with a decent chunk of time away from what I’m admitted to myself that I honestly still try to maintain:
• “my” food
• “my” body routines, like exercise
• my daily routines as a whole (like struggling to be present, live my life more, etc.)
Take a step back to really listen to your feelings. Notice the tendencies you have, and be kind to the voices that push us to still be in the same headspace as our struggling minds often take us to.
I’m grateful for these 2 weeks & a vacation where I can’t exercise like I usually do or really do anything I typically do.
I want to practice being outside my comfort zone, and it’s not easy.
In recovery, in just working on my relationship with my body and eating, it’s really good that I see barriers I still throw up for myself.
My body is still worthy of being loved if it’s not in the gym and if it’s changing. And I deserve to live a freer life without feeling I h a v e to do anything.
I’m learning to let go, little by little.
And that’s all we need to try to do ✨
