Sunday Update: Right Now

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking.  (Oh yeah, I made it to bootcamp all three days this week.)

I think I look pretty good right now.  RIGHT NOW.  If nothing changes from here on out, I’m good.  I’ll keep working out.  I’ll keep trying to eat right.  I’ll keep laughing with my friends.  I’ll keep looking fabulous.

Because really, if we can’t accept and love ourselves just as we are – RIGHT NOW – what makes us think we can love ourselves any other way?  

This simple thought, love myself as I am, makes the future look a whole lot brighter.  It also makes it a whole lot less work.  Because now, every goal is something to be looked forward too.  What could be even better than right now?  Tell me that’s not exciting!

So step back, start thinking some, and consider what it is you have right now.  You’re alive, you have work, you have friends, you have a roof over your head …. the list goes on and on.  If you’re like me, you’re working on yourself all the while accepting who you are right now is just fine.
