Can you FORCE yourself to love and accept yourself just as you are? No, sadly. Instead, you must GENTLY allow yourself your mistakes and your slips AND your accomplishments, knowing that you are exactly where you are supposed to be, doing what God intended. If you trust that you are on the right path, and everything is a lesson, then nothing is a mistake. Not even a load of chocolate. So, this is hard to do, but I'm committed to loving myself exactly as I am. Period. Not ten pounds from now, not when I'm cast in a show, not at any time in the future INSTEAD of right now. This is who I am AT THIS MOMENT, and I have to be okay with that.
