You are stronger than you know…
The words dripped out of my fat, beloved pink Sharpie and stained a yellow office post it. For some reason, many times through out the day, the drudgery of life nabs my attention. I am impatient, anxious, addicted, weak. And this tendency to parent myself with criticism (“don’t buy that, use your manners, stand up tall and make a good impression!”) is often inauthentic and inaccurate.
Because I am strong, bad ass chicka!
The post stands and am taping it here…Leave a comment, naming three things you have done this year in 2009 that required strength…
Here are mine
1) Gave up my treadmill when it was clear that I was running due to compulsion and not for my health
2) Waited for a job in ambiguity, and then accepted one overseas beginning in THREE months
3) I signed up for backpacking trip by myself
This is part of Operation Beautiful. I am committing to putting up THREE sticky notes in the hospital today in random places. They will say
YOU ARE STRONGER THAN YOU KNOW
NOTICE YOUR BEAUTY!
WHO you are matters more than WHAT you are
What three things have you done or are than make you strong?
