I was talking with my team yesterday about our vision and we were sharing our personal stories and why this self care process has been so vital to our emotional wellbeing. Though our stories were all different, it all came down to this: We have been told our whole lives that we were less than others on some level. We've been told we aren't pretty enough, thin enough, smart enough, talented enough. We've all spend our lives spinning our wheels trying to reach unattainable standards, trying to conform to the box that we are being forced into.
For all of us, this has been the first time that we have been able to cast off expectations and take a look at our own amazing abilities and to see our worth outside the filter of other people's opinions. We have been to admire other women's beauty without questioning our own. We have been able to be amazed by what our bodies can do and how incredible it feels physically and emotionally to truly care for them!
We have learned to celebrate strength and growth. We have committed to self-discovery and being MORE of what we were created to be. Most importantly, we have learned to recognize and reject shame. It's not about losing weight or being a perfect physical specimen, it's simply about pursuing health and growth in every area of our lives.
Instead of trying to be more like someone else, let's strive to be more of what we already are! Instead of striving to be all the same, let's marvel in the beauty of diversity!
