Embrace and love your body, it's the most amazing thing you will ever own. Your body tells a story. For some people your story lies behind your body image and what you see on the outside. You can't judge a body and deem it healthy or unhealthy. You can’t know everything about a person’s behavior or life by simply looking at her body.
I don't think I have ever met one person who didn't have a glimmer of self-doubt. What I feel many people struggle with is the constant replay of thoughts in your mind about how your just not good enough. It's time to put all that to rest. Your mindset and self talk is imperative to your self worth. You need to start to value and take care of your body. If you learn to respect yourself, you will quiet the negative self talk and embody power and strength.
One thing I want to have everyone think about is the way they speak to themselves. We abuse ourselves. I used to bully the hell out of myself, and I know that I am not alone in that. Self-bully-ers are everywhere! I do know that when it comes from a place of determining your worth as a person, your focus on not being good enough just makes it easier to “find” more ways in which you aren’t good enough. Does this sound familiar?
Why would you ever speak that way about yourself. Would you tell a friend the things you tell yourself? From personal experience, my answer to that question is HELL NO! I would never talk to my friends the way that I think about myself. So why would I treat myself with that disrespect ?
Judgment, bullying, and shaming are counterproductive. If you are passionate about health, seek to make a positive impact for others.Speak with the same kindness that you would to others for yourself. We are all just trying to figure out how to live a beautiful life. I want to promote health in a way that isn’t about shame. We can all benefit from being and having positive role models and compassion, but never judgmental.
