I love this! As women we often look to fitness to make us more beautiful because we have bought into the lie that thin = beauty. You are beautiful right here and now. As someone who has been thin my entire life, I can tell you that being thin doesn't solve the problem. I have spent my life feeling unworthy and criticizing my appearance as much or more than someone who is overweight. What I have discovered is that we don't need an outward change, we need an inward change. When I started caring for my body, respecting it through the food choices I was making and working out to become stronger not to stay thin, there was a shift in my perspective. When you care for your body because you are worthy, the end results (thinness) stops being the point and the journey becomes the point.
My mission is to be a catalyst for change in how women view their bodies and their worth. We have a lot stacked against us with the unattainable beauty standards of our society but I believe the change starts from the inside out. It's time to stop comparing and time to start seeing ourselves the way those that love us see us! There isn't a perfect body shape, age, skin color, height or weight. It's the differences that make us truly beautiful as women! If my post caught your eye because you struggle with insecurities like I do, I would love to talk to you some more. I would love to give you some personal development ideas ( books to read or podcasts to listen to) to start caring for your mind and giving you the confidence to know that you are worthy just as you are! Or if you are ready to start working on the whole package and would like to join our group and get plugged in with women on a mission, we would love to have you! Our next group starts January 4th.
One of my favorite quotes is by Ralph Waldo Emerson:"Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting."
Never lose an opportunity to see beauty in yourself. You are a masterpiece! And as you choose to see your own beauty, you inspire others to see their own and that's where this turns into a revolution!
