I woke early, excited to start putting my make-up on for Halloween. I am feeling really good for making that decision for myself, I love Halloween and I shouldn't let feeling bad about dressing up. Why do I feel bad? Well, because I am an adult and we have been programmed that it is child-like to dress up, and that I don't want people to think I am needing attention.
Today, I thought I would just take it easy after my chiropractic adjustment, and just teach classes. I even took myself to lunch at Denny's and I still seemed to win at Calories in: 1,397 Calories out: 1,751.
It is almost 7:00 pm and I am feeling very pouty, like a child who is throwing a tantrum. My kid just did not want to go Trick-or-Treating, exhausted from school, (and P.E.), and very matter-of-fact, "I just never liked Trick-or-Treating". So I took my whiny, fit-throwing, self to the bath.
I really have to stop myself and really appreciate the opportunity of growth today. Instead of feeling bad, I am feeling grateful. I dressed up and had fun, with a ton of love in my heart, I had a great day with all my favorite people, I took myself to lunch, I got to talk to friends, soaked in a hot Epsom salt bath, and most importantly, I am here to celebrate Halloween again this year. Do I really think that I am missing out on something so huge tonight? Does it serve me to feel angry, resentful, or hurt if everything is not perfect for me, or if I don't get what I want? I have to get over myself, and let that crap go.
Today, as well as everyday is a blessing. I have so much to be grateful for. I didn't break anything in my accident, I can walk, talk, function, run my business, love and protect my kid, and I am alive to do all of this. Plus, you are reading this right now!
Much love to you, thank you for reading, Have a very fun and safe Halloween!
