#WednesdayWisdom: don’t fight with yourself.


I’m cold today, the sudden drop in temperature has me chilly, even though normally these would be welcome temperatures after a long winter. It’s all relative.

Today I knew that I wouldn’t be able to sit down and chat with you without another cup of coffee. First, because it’s nice and hot, something I can use right now. And second, even at half-caff, it will help me shake some of this sluggishness.

I hope.

I decided I wanted it with sugar and cinnamon. I have this little milk frother I got on a deal at Amazon, it heads and foams the milk. Any kind of milk; I like vanilla almond milk.

So I spooned in some sugar, and sprinkled some cinnamon but it was a whole lot more cinnamon than I intended. I’ve had a sip and it seems OK. I guess we’ll see.

But the point is I acknowledged what I needed to get going on what I should do and I didn’t fight with myself over it. I didn’t agonize, I didn’t argue.

I just did it.

It’s OK to be kind to yourself. It’s OK to listen to your body and give it what it wants sometimes. Most of the time.

Unless what it wants will ultimately harm you.

A cup of half-caff is not that. The massive amount of cinnamon on the other hand…

Though it did seem to blend in. So far, so good.

We spend so much time telling ourselves no. Once today, tell yourself yes.

And that’s it for me today. This hardly hurt at all.

Have a great Wednesday.
