This morning on my way to work I was listening to Pandora and “Try Everything” by Shakira came on. Yes, I had heard it before, when I watched Zootopia, but other than it was a catchy song, I never really listened to the lyrics. Until today.
“I messed up tonight
I lost another fight
I still mess up but I’ll just start again”
I have had a tough week or two. I had these plans for self-improving/compassion, then somehow life took over again. I’m sure this happens to a lot of people and it is frustrating. However, the most important thing at this point is to recognize it and start again. Don’t beat yourself up and just stay stuck or say I’ll do it tomorrow. Start now!
“Look how far you’ve come
You filled your heart with love
Baby you’ve done enough that cut your breath
Don’t beat yourself up”
So…back to meditation, reading, mindfulness, more minimizing and less smoking! I am starting over right now. Be sure and look up the rest of the lyrics to this song! Especially if you need a little boost. I hope you have an awesome day!
“I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
Till I reach the end
And then I’ll start again”
