This week I told you I was working on not complaining and as I've been monitoring what is coming out of my mouth, I've also been noticing my complaining thoughts.
I am on fire with passion for helping woman find freedom in their lives! My true desire is to help them see their worth and beauty and to be filled with excitement for their lives!
And then, in weak moments, in the privacy of my thoughts, I can be such a hypocrite. I can pick myself apart, I can focus on my flaws, or how I'm aging, or all the ways I fail each day.
I can't change the corrupt system if I don't set my mind free. I can't change my behavior if my mind isn't free. The hard work we do as women isn't lifting weights, or controlling our nutrition, or challenging the world view, it's choosing to LIVE in freedom!
It's work! HOWEVER, if we want change, that's where it starts! People aren't inspired or persuaded into change with words, it's the internal transformation that makes others pause and take note! It's the desire to be part of what they see taking place in us!
I want my daughters to value themselves! I want them to require others to respect them. I want them to be so confident in who they are as human beings that they aren't intimidated by marketing ploys or tempted to use their beauty as power. I want them to love their bodies, to be good stewards of them but not be distracted how they look. I want them to be free! Because when they are they will walk away from jobs that don't pay them fairly, they will say goodbye to relationships that tear them down, they will be strong enough to fight for others without fearing loss of privilege, they will be the generation that brings equality because they refuse to be labeled or to label others.
Friends, I say this with tears in my eyes, I want this for myself too. I'm fighting for it and it feels like an uphill battle some days, but I'm staying in this arena because nothing threatens a corrupt system like a free mind.
This journey starts with self care and we don't get to pick and choose! It requires taking care of your whole self, mind, body, and soul! I used to be obsessed with a fit body and it consumed me, it was a sign that my mind wasn't healthy. I had to understand that I wasn't healthy before I desired to change. Whether your unhealthy is internal or external, our journey to healthy starts with freeing our minds.
We start a new group on Monday and I invite you to join us! Come and experience grace and freedom and boundaries that help you push past the comfort zone that hold you captive. You CAN change and you can inspire others with your journey! Message me to take the first step! 💗
