Day 01 → Something you hate about yourself.
Day 02 → Something you love about yourself.
Day 03 → Something you have to forgive yourself for.
Day 04 – Something you have to forgive someone else for.

Day 09 → Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.
Day 10 → Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.
Day 11 → Something people seem to compliment you the most on.
Day 12 → Something you never get compliments on.
Day 13 → A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days. (write a letter.)

Day 22 → Something you wish you hadn’t done in your life.
Day 23 → Something you wish you had done in your life.
Day 24 → Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles and artists and letter)
Day 25 → The reason you believe you’re still alive today.
Day 26 → Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so, when and why?
Day 27 → What’s the best thing going for you right now?
Day 28 → What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?
Day 29 → Something you hope to change about yourself. And why.
Day 30 → A letter to yourself, tell yourself EVERYTHING you love about yourself
So today, I’ll do Day 1: Something you hate about yourself.
I hate that I let myself get back out of shape after Gregory died. I went the opposite of most who lose weight. I gained it, and then some. Drinking copious amounts of wine and staying up all night and sleeping all day will do that to you. After losing over 60 pounds a few years ago and getting into an established and great exercise routine, I let it all go to hell. Now I have to start all over again, and the fact that I can’t find the motivation in myself pisses me off. I can motivate my ass to the Dairy Queen and I pass three gyms, several parks and miles of great bike riding roads in the process, and I always think ” I’ll start next week.” I need a friend or someone to help me get going, stick to it and get me off the “poor widow me” track I seem to be stuck on. And I hate myself for not being able to suck it up and do it myself. I know the insomnia, the blahs and the general feeling of craptaculars in general could be helped by exercise and feeling better. But some days, it’s just easier to lift a glass of wine than a dumbbell.
This girl would have kicked my ass for me ….
I hate myself for losing her.
Next time – something I love about myself…..
