I’m just gonna dish out some tough love here: STOP wishing for it and START working for it.
I can barely count how many messages I get that begin with “I wish I was as XYZ as you…” and while it’s flattering, it also makes me feel like people might not realize that if I’m eating well, it’s BECAUSE I prep. If I’m having a healthy pregnancy, it’s BECAUSE I’m moving my body to the degree with which I’m able.
I’m not WISHING for it, I’m WORKING for it, because that, and ONLY that, is how you attain what you are aiming for.
Stop exerting energy on wishes, realize you are WORTH the efforts, and channel your energy into that – you will get MUCH further, I promise.
As always, if you need help, I got you! You are more capable than you think, but you gotta begin!
There is POWER in the pause.
Pause. Rest. Whatever you need… for as long as you may need.
There is nothing shameful about it and it doesn’t make you any less than.
But don’t you quit.
I respect and am inspired by those who honor themselves and their needs by pausing, not quitting.
Pride and ego have no place in health and wellness, if you ask me.
You loved and honored yourself enough to SHOW UP, why wouldn’t you love and honor yourself enough to do what you need to do to FINISH what you started?
BOOM, let’s lead by example, shall we?
YOU are special. There is no other person in this world like YOU. You deserve to be loved… not only by those around you but by the most important person in your life — YOU. Self-love can be challenging for many of us, especially when faced with serious challenges, but… spoiler alert: it’s necessary to practice self-love so we can PUSH THROUGH our limiting beliefs and LIVE a life that truly SHINES.
Go to your happy place when you are going through hard times, or imagine yourself being there. Think about how it feels, what it smells like, what it looks like.
As HARD as this is (and it IS hard, whew!) this is so worthwhile.
There is something inherently beautiful about owning who you are, and allowing others to see that.
And when we encourage others to do so as well? Therein lies the secret to world peace, me thinks.
Did you know that, according to the American Diabetes Association, 1.4 million American’s are newly diagnosed with Diabetes every year?
1.4 million NEW cases. Tacked on to a society that is teeming with Diabetics. We are everywhere.
We can’t let this number grow.
We need more research, we need to be more mindful about what we do and do not put in our bodies, we need to make being active a priority, not a once-in-a-while thing, we need to learn how best to manage our stress and emotions, and we need to CARE about our health.
We must be diligent in this management. I know for me, I don’t stay on top of things as well as I should, and I am actively working on changing that because myself and my health are worth that. You and YOUR health are worth that.
You are not alone, and this is not how your chapter ends – if you need an accountabilibuddy, reach out – I’d love to work with you!
Let’s bring that statistic down by a LOT, shall we?
Much as we wish it would, no change happens over night, and the same goes for building your self-worth.
By taking each day one at a time, you feel more capable. It doesn’t seem as overwhelming when it’s broken down into smaller chunks, such as 7 days instead of one week.
And not all days will be up, just like not all days will be down. There will be ebbs and flows, good days and less good days. But each sunset closes out that day and each sunrise brings a new one forth.
Love yourself and take each day as it comes.
Love this lady! I am not crazy into fashion but I can always applaud a strong businesswoman, and her words here are SPOT. ON.
We’re always so critical of ourselves, always nitpicking.
Be your own best friend! Celebrate your accomplishments the way you would celebrate your best friends. Be strong. Be a role model. Be your own best friend, never being afraid to give yourself a reality check, or props for a job well done!
