I am joining Kate Motaung and others who are writing every day in October. My intention is to record my reactions and feelings about Brené Brown's newest book, "Rising Strong". You can find the other posts I have written here.
Today I realized that my aversion to accountability has to do with feeling that unless my accounting is perfect, it is not worth recording. So here I am dealing with perfectionism. Making an accounting is really just marking where we are in our journey. It is helpful if we are honest. Rather than numbing my feeling of inadequacy with food maybe I should sit with the feeling and look at what I am trying to do. Perhaps I could feel grateful that my body can respond to good self-care.
"Lord, help me do better everyday and always show thee my gratitude for having a body and spirit to integrate with thy will. Help me on my wholehearted journey"
