´ Zeroing in on what we don't like -
November 21, 2017

Your body is creating millions of red blood cells right now. Your heart is beating, you are pumping gallons of blood through your system and you are growing skin cells. Your brain is sorting through millions of visual cues and your brain is sending billions of signals. This is not an exaggeration. Your kidney is cleaning your blood and your hair and nails are growing. This is just a tiny fraction of what is going on in your body and most of us never ever think about it unless something goes wrong. Do you realize that even a tiny hitch in all of these processes could cause you serious problems? Even if you are in pain or sick right now there is so much happening in your body that is working great.

I encourage you to think about all of these miraculous things happening right now instead of focusing on what you don’t like about yourself. Don’t give up on trying if it’s hard. You are used to a certain way of thinking about yourself. If you stop you will be like a piano player who stops to play: you get slower, less intense and eventually big parts of negativity fade away.
