Queen Sheba

I loved the quote in my Daily Light email this morning.  It’s perfect for a certain woman 3.5 years younger than I and very blonde:

“Always act like you’re wearing an invisible crown.” –Unknown

And be the queen that you are. 

My roommate Jamie and I always talk about self-love and how important it is to know your worth.  Obviously, this is easier said than done and we all know it’s a daily struggle for me.  When I’m having an “off” day I feel it immediately when I wake up.  Those are usually my overeating days as well.  I’m trying to “fix” the problem and basically grasping at straws.  There are far better ways to deal with feeling sad/lonely/angry and I know the correct methods for dealing with those emotions.  I should work out instead of eat out.  I should write in my journal instead of search through my fridge.  You know, the usual.  Some days I make the right choices.  Yesterday was not one of those days. 

This quote came at the perfect time.  As Jamie always says,” you get the best when you expect the best.”  This applies to the expectations I set for myself.  No one is perfect, this I know, but it’s OK to demand more of yourself (myself).  I’ve done some pretty kick ass things.  I completed a triathlon.  Sometimes I need a little reminder that if I can do that I can surely work out for thirty minutes on a busy day. 

Thus concludes my self pep talk of the day.  Thanks for listening, blog friends.
