first, here's a little treat from my fam pictures on saturday...
[that's me on the right and da baby sista on da left.]
ok now on to the resolution stuff...
here's my problem:
i'm SUPER self critical.
the thing is,
it's really easy for me to be nice to other people.
but for some reason,
i often leave myself out of that equation.
i have a big, fat habit of getting very frustrated with my flaws and having very little patience with myself.
did i fail at something?
i feel like i'm a failure.
did i have a lazy afternoon?
i feel like i'm a lazy person.
did i read my scriptures half-heartedly?
i feel like i'm a sorry excuse for a follower of Christ.
is my hair weird and my lips dry and are my legs twiggy and do i have dark circles under my eyes the size of tejas?
i feel like i'm an awkward mess.
is my room always cluttered and messy?
i feel like i'm a terrible human being who can't even keep a handle on something as simple as hanging my clothes up or putting my shoes away.
you get the point.
so my resolution for 2012?
be nicer to me.
if it's something critical and demeaning that i would never say to someone else, i shouldn't be saying or thinking it about myself either.
it's kind of like the golden rule, but opposite:
do unto myself as i do unto others.
someone make me a shirt & bumper stickers, yo!
let's do this.
are any of you with me on this?
