The Day I Stop

I wasn’t strong enough. I was swayed, letting myself getting carried away, letting my own voice drowned while I was busy listening without filtering. I won’t make an excuse for myself. I was stressed and unhappy and it was nobody’s fault but my own.

Crazy diets, doing exercises I dislike, beating myself up mentally. Now that I think back, I think again, how could I do that to myself? I make effort to be kind to others yet, I wasn’t kind to myself. Doesn’t one start loving others by loving him/herself first?

Now I know better.

It was the day I stop.

The day I stop counting calories. The day I stop weighing myself. Don’t get me wrong. I still watch over my weight. But for a different reason now. I don’t go on diets. Just limiting my junk food intake, making a conscious healthier choice. It’s no longer because I want to be a size zero.

It’s because I love myself, inside out. I no longer want to look like a model. I want to look like me. I want to look and be healthy.

I can’t stop listening because I’ve got two ears but this time, I’m filtering. I now know better. I’m happy being myself. I don’t want to be anyone else.

It’s the day I stop thinking skinny always means pretty.

It’s the day I stop letting thoughts enter unfiltered.

I’ve never been happier.

Born to teach and write is probably a way to sum up this writer lady. She enjoys long walks, short jogs and occasional sprints. A little addicted to pilates and yoga but not so much that she can twist and bend in all directions. Highly addicted to reading, which is what transpires her to write. She’s currently escaping to the marvellous fictional wonderland.
