Remember a few weeks ago when I posted The Picture in Your Head Quote?
What will mess you up most in life is the picture in your head of how it is supposed to be. -Unknown
I don’t think a day has gone by where I haven’t thought of that line. It’s really helped me frame things in my life, like my relationships and the scale, even the kids.
This weekend I’m posting what I consider an extension on that thought.
"Sometimes you just got to give yourself what you wish someone else would give you." – Dr Phil
Oh boy.. how many times have I wished the husband would recognize I had a bad day and draw me a bath, or give me a massage or cook me dinner.
Even saying that aloud makes me laugh. He’s never even thought of doing things like that. I don’t think it’s in his DNA.
I’m joking, partially, but I want us to really think about that quote beyond the typical physical things we may want that the people in our lives aren’t giving us.
Sometimes you have to give yourself…
- love, or
- simply a pat on the back.
Yes.. that’s me… patting myself on the back. ;)
Don’t wait for someone else to give these things to you. Sometimes that’s not how it’s suppose to go even though you may think it is.
