Depriving yourself is fertile ground for resentment, stress, anger, and sadness to grow. Whether you're trying to lose weight or working on standing up for yourself and moving your life more in the direction you want it to go; begin a practice of giving yourself what you want (and need.)
Seems like a simple practice but it takes a whole lot of courage and worthiness to really follow through.
And follow through is everything woman. Everyone can wish, but not everyone is willing to do what it takes to make change happen.
