"Love What You've Done"

In Al-Anon, I've been learning about not abandoning myself. With practice, I'm getting better at it. The other day, I got into "getting stuff done" mode, I was no longer being present and my movements became willful. Sure enough, I hurt myself. The big ouch on my shin, a perfect reminder that I had "abandoned myself." I was pretty hard on myself about it, until the next day in my daily reader, Melody Beattie reminded me not be, with the exact words I've been learning, "Have you abandoned yourself? Let yourself see if that's true, feel if that's true. Learning to love the way you handle things. Love your unique way of learning, growing and seeing things. Love where you've been. Love what you've done."
