SinfulSunday - dark and light

At this time of year my bathroom becomes a place of warmth and healing. For many years when stressed, or not happy with my body it was a place I avoided. Relaxation simply wasn’t possible. My mind would work overtime as my body stilled…

What if bleach had been left in the bath after cleaning?

Why was my stomach always puckered and protruding rather than flat or smooth no matter how thin I was?

Underneath all of these racing thoughts were the real questions of course.

Was I safe?

Was I lovable?

I have learned to look to myself for the answers to these questions.

I am as safe as anyone else is in an impermanent world. I will do my best to support myself.

I am as lovable as anyone else is. I will do my best to love myself wholeheartedly.

  1. Wise words, Eye. I am forever denying myself relaxation because of all those things that have to happen. Slowly learning that I too may relax, and that I can love myself. Baby steps, but I am finally making progress. Love your image, and your words.

  2. your words of affirmation are so good. the fact that you are consciously turning your fears and rushing thoughts on their heads is really positive!

    1. sometimes it is exhausting to have to keep doing but in the end what other choice is there if I want to continue to love life ? Thanks for the encouragement. I appreciate it 🙂

I'd love to hear what you think!
