For every choice we say “yes” to, we have to say “no” to something else. Often times, the choices that I make actually seem painful. This is one of those weeks…

~Do I say yes to somebody that I love when it will cost me money and time that I really don’t have? No.
~Do I drag myself to the grocery store when I have a monster migraine? Yes, I need to nourish myself.
~Do I confront somebody who has lied to me and hurt me repeatedly, no matter how much love and support I heap upon them? This is tricky, but no for now. I just “can’t” go through it again. I may change my mind next week.
~Do I watch Netflix or do the dishes? Ha! With my iPad, I can do both!
~Do I get gas at night or in the morning? Sometimes the little things just do me in.

These are the weeks where I snuggle down in my sofa and reach out to people when I need help. Where I make sure to tell my people that I love them, because sometimes that’s all we seem to have. This is when I really pay attention to my food because it’s easy for me to slip into eating as a coping mechanism. It’s when I breathe through the feelings and know that every decision I make is for the greater good. It’s about taking care of myself while honoring my commitments. It’s about making the decisions through the filter of love, starting with self love. Finally, I know that I won’t always make the best choice, but I also know that the more I trust my gut, the more I can trust myself. And with that, I’m up off my sofa…I’ve got some living to do!
