Alright, it’s about to get VERY real up in here.
I used to spend all of my time stressing about what I looked like. I used to cover myself in hoodies and baggy clothes and extra layers that hid my body so that people wouldn’t notice what I looked like underneath it all. That way, if they couldn’t see my fat rolls or my chunky legs or my big arms, I could finally be seen as EQUAL to everyone else. But what I truly realized was that I didn’t see MYSELF as equal. And all that time I spent worrying about what everyone else was thinking about me in public was just a true reflection of how I felt about myself.
I didn’t think that I was worthy.
I didn’t think that I was enough.
It had nothing to do about anyone else. Whether they did or they didn’t, it really doesn’t matter. The truth of the matter is that I DIDN’T BELIEVE IT. I didn’t think that I was worthy.
I wasted YEARS of my life hiding from myself, others and experiences. I said NO to a lot of things that I wished I hadn’t said “no” to because I thought that people would JUDGE me. I thought that I didn’t DESERVE to be happy, or that I didn’t deserve to go to the beach in a bikini and feel confident, or that I didn’t deserve to fall in love with someone who truly respected me.
But that was me and my own limiting beliefs preventing me from living my fullest life.
So, stop wasting your time worrying about the way you look and spend more time having experiences you actually ENJOY. Because no matter what the world may look like through a lens - whether it’s on Instagram, Facebook, TV or movies - it’s all a highlight reel. And the more you bombard yourself with ideas about how everybody else is living their life, how everyone else should look, should act, should BE - the more you limit yourself from living your BEST LIFE.
Instead, go out there and just say YES. Say YES to wearing that bikini. Say YES to going to that music festival. Say YES to new experiences. Say YES to chasing your dreams. Say YES to following your heart.
Seriously. Stop worrying about what you look like and start LIVING the life you’ve always imagined. It’s out there. It really is.
All you have to do is say YES.
With love and wellness,
