Choosing Me | The Battle for You

by Cindy Ratzlaff

I find I need to remind myself, not just daily but sometimes hourly, to choose myself over some habits I’ve developed.  Kathy and I speak about this often and here’s a strategy we’re trying for today.  Every time we find ourselves craving something sweet or hesitating to take time to take care of ourselves in any way, we stop, look in the mirror and say out loud, “I choose you.”

This sounds so simple, but it’s very powerful.  If I choose that Heath Bar over my goal to be healthier and feel better, then I need to say it out loud.  Some days I won’t choose me.  But I’m finding that most days I do.  So for today, I wanted to share that remembering to give a voice to my choices is helping.

What choices are you making unconsciously that might be made differently if you were fully aware of your actions?  Let’s give them a voice and see if we can’t turn unconscious choices into positive conscious choices in the Battle for You.

  1. I’m with you Cindy, ditto on all the above. I guess the good news is we’re still in the battle and haven’t been killed off, haha. Current battle is what to do with my life, Now? I feel like a 12-13 yr. old again, at that awkward age where I don’t seem to fit in or have a place or clear purpose. I never would have guessed 50’s would have that feel. Choices? Sometimes none, then again, with this Information/Tech Age we’re in– too many choices, overload. Strange Battle, I know, but definitely worth fighting. Whatever our battle is, we gotta believe we’re winners. Thanks, Queen Cindy, for the open forum!

    We are all most definitely worth the fight, Queen Pam. I’ve been in awe of how this tech age is really bringing us all together and I’m grateful.
