Diary of a Middle Age Woman Writer

Beginning at Home

Dear Diary,

Caught myself trying to conform to my own ideals. How does that relate to self acceptance? Self exceptance – I love me except for . . . Blah did dee blah blah.

Be me, first; warts and all. Find compassion. Self compassion for each little bitty thing, good or bad that makes up me. Then love them and the sum of them — me.

Only then can I honestly, happily apply compensations from the me that I am to the me I want to be.

For my self and others, this would be a fine goal for this year.

J.
