Extremely rough day yesterday. Without the frustrating, upsetting, pushed to the limit details of yesterday, needless to say that parenting can sometimes just suck in a major way. My pre-teen son can try my every last nerve. Yesterday was off the charts difficult. Today is a new day but I still have the hangover from yesterday. I hope there will be a happy ending to the story with him.
The bright silver lining is that I stayed on track yesterday. I cannot emphasize how major that accomplishment is for me. It was the parenting day from hell....the depths of hell. Staying on track yesterday shows me that if I can stay on track on a day like yesterday, I'm solidly on track. Solidly on track with my emotional eating but also my life in general. I didn't allow it to detour me from my personal growth, eating on track and staying grounded - being my OWN SHINE.
The true test was yesterday. If I stayed on track from everything yesterday, I feel very secure in the fact that I'm honoring the commitment and promise I've made to myself to stay on track no matter what.
Among my blessings that I am deeply grateful for as we approach Thanksgiving, my commitment to myself to stay on track and being so solid with it is one of mine.
