Y is for YOU….Do you love YOU or do you bully YOU?!
Updated: December 12, 2013
Dearest fabulous YOU,
I am loving this time of year as I get to think about how I can support others and celebrate my awesome life with gratitude so I hope you’ll get a chance to chat with me this coming Friday!
This week marks my special “give back to you” Radio special on Dec. 13th on CBS Newsky radio.com. I’ll be there for two hours of oracle readings from 3 to 5 pm EST. It’s been ages since I’ve been on air so I’m psyched to talk to you. Y is for Yippee! http://sky.cbslocal.com
I’m also gearing up for a re-release of my book, Weight Loss for People Who Feel Too Much, and so as always my focus is on that subject- the trickiest time of year being now. (Stay tuned for more on that one this week.)
It’s not about the food anyway, it’s about how we feel, how we’re affected when others’ energy seems to overwhelm and assault us. It’s a difficult time of year for sensitive people. The quantum field just doesn’t feel big enough for those of us with porous boundaries.
It’s so easy for women who feel too much to gain weight at this time of year even if you’re watching what you eat. The most important thing we can do is be gentle, let go of rigid thinking, choose self-care with awareness and do the best we can to say “No” to drama, and not expect perfection.
This brings me to the subject of today—for all of us women—not just the sensitive ones.
I’m going to out myself about something that happened this weekend. I caught myself saying something derogatory about my looks to someone. I think in three minutes I asked “Do I look fat?” “Crap, YUCK I’m getting old.”, and “Look at these disgusting flappy arms!” I was in a dressing room at a department store and there were at least six other women, all attractive, various sizes and shapes and every single one said at least one thing that showed she did not approve of herself fully by pointing out what was wrong with her body. I was in good company. Or was I?
I was not walking my talk at all here. Talking about ourselves like that is no different than being a BULLY. Would we say that to someone else we loved? It felt like we were all comrades in self-disgust for a moment and it felt really, really wrong.
I had to face that I returned to my default setting of negative self-talk and was not loving and approving of myself. It really upset me. I had let my self-care slide for a few days and landed smack in self- BULLY–ville. I actually caught myself and went into my cubicle and spent five solid minutes doing EFT reminding myself that I was worthy, loveable, beautiful, kind, grateful and healthy.
I had a slip…yet I was not the only one! I thought about this all afternoon, how women in particular talk about themselves with such lack of kindness and acceptance especially around our bodies.
When I got home synchronicity aligned and in a weird internet search for something completely unrelated a video popped up that I want you to watch. For me I got really clear that this Self-Bully stuff has got to go!!
How do you feel when you watch this video?
How do you treat the awesome beautiful spectacular you? What is your self-talk, and, if you slide what do you do to get yourself back to loving your awesome YOU?
It’s called Shhhhut Down Fat Talk.
Stay tuned for more on this …….
Loving you always and forever,
Because I want to
