Self acceptance is really the first step (no pun intended 😝) to making a change. Love yourself now, as you are.
There is no way a year ago, even 6 months ago, I would have posted a picture like this. If you’ve been following me for some time you’ve seen journey to self love. I know firsthand this is not easy.
I need all the best angles.
I need to stand up so I don’t have rolls.
I can’t show myself that like.
Well why the F not?! I don’t workout to fit into societies standards of “beauty.” But let me be clear, for a long time this wasn’t the case. I was continually thinking about being smaller and that’s why I’d need to kill myself in the gym or during my workouts. I would restrict my calories and feel hungry all the time, but then gain the weight back and wonder why?
This journey has helped me work on myself and find my self love. I workout because I love myself and because I want to treat my body with care and respect.
The idea of beauty that this entire diet culture has shown is sickening.
You do not need to be a size 4 to be beautiful.
You don’t need a tiny waist and small hips to be beautiful.
You don’t need perfect skin to be beautiful.
I am beautiful now as I am.
My skin is breaking out like I’m 13.
I have rolls when I sit down, and a big butt.
Guess what? That is still beautiful!
Don’t let other people define beauty for you. You are beautiful NOW as you are. ❤️
A lot of us have goals in our lives. I want a new car, I want a new house, I want more money, I want love etc
However, we must go deeper when evaluating over goals, why do we want more money, why a new car, why do you want love.
A lot of us achieve our goals yet we are still unhappy but this i feel is due to us not really looking at our end goals.
I want more money is neither specific or will evolve as much emotions as writing down what extra money would do for you.
End Goals - Write, think, feel, visualise & realise
When you think of something you want to accomplish, planning is important but action is what will get you to your end goal.
Many people get stuck in the learning and planning stage for so long that nothing ever gets done.
We came up with the idea of starting a podcast yesterday, 40 hours later, we have our setup almost complete and ready to go!
