So standing in bathroom at therapy thinking about this world of social media. what in world happened to it? having a biz that relies heavily on it can be quite overwhelming for the girl struggling with it 🙋🏻♀️when did everyone become an expert? when did the highlight reel overtake the real reel? why do we have to talk about empowerment and such. shouldn’t we already be doing that? i am struggling hard with social media the last few months. do we need clubs and t shirts to show we are enough? look in the mirror, you can see, breathe and walk. that is enough. no group, t-shirt, program, podcast, email, newsletter or selfie can make that happen. you make it happen. your mind makes it happen. you can have all of the above but if you still complain or gossip, you aren’t there yet and guess what? that’s ok! it’s your life, your time frame and your decisions and thoughts. we are all a work in progress. go at your pace. go your own way. do you boo. stop looking for the right mentor. stop feeling like a failure if you don’t have a tribe. who care if you don’t go to church every week. who cares if you eat carbs! come on people, let’s show your messy life on social media. not filtered. you hate your kids today? great! you want to scream at your spouse, alright. you want to call in sick, do it. a very long time ago, people just lived lives and have not one blog to prove it. what would happen if we just lived....... #woosahwednesday
To my body, i’m sorry: .
i struggled for years with an unhealthy relationship with the scale. i let that number define me and my self worth. i would eat once a day and run for hours just to see that number on the scale drop. then i would binge all weekend long because i was starving. every time i stepped on the scale i thought that i wasn’t good enough, the number wasn’t low enough, i wasn’t skinny enough. this mindset lead to years of neglect. i’m sorry i neglected you, i’m sorry i let a number define if i would nourish you that day or not. .
when i started this journey i broke up with the scale. sometimes i don’t step on it for weeks at a time and here is why; i refuse to let myself fall back into that trap. i’m on a journey of self love and acceptance ❤️ pictures speak 1,000 words; positive words. words of affirmation. words like “damn girl look at you go!” 😍 .
one month separates these pictures and i will continue to document my journey; not by a number but by pictures, lots and lots of pictures 🤸♂️ if i based my journey off the number on the scale i would have given up a long time ago. break up with the scale, change your mindset, and crush your goals! ✨
I am enough.
yesterday i created little post it notes and put them all over my desktop!
little reminders of what i’m working toward & remind me to keep going even when i feel resistant to change.
this morning after my daily devotional, personal development, and meditation, i spent 30 minutes creating affirmations for why i’m enough.
when i wanted to quit during my workout today...
when i started to question myself...
when i began to lack belief...
i thought of all those messages i wrote to myself.
i am enough.
you are enough.
we are enough.
That person who you see in the mirror... that's your competition. comparison becomes paralyzingly and it is not the solution that will help you accomplish your goals.
it doesn't matter what everyone else is doing and there's no reason to rush the process. i have to remind myself of that daily. but lately, i’m trying to focus on the small wins like not snoozing my alarm, getting in 15 minutes of personal development, pushing play on my workout, getting gifts ready to send to my coaches + clients. ✨
if you show up today, you are one step closer compared to yesterday.
the process of growth is not about the end result. take it day by day and start focusing on small activities that will build over time. it's not always about the final outcome it's the person you become in the process. remember that done is better than perfect. 💯 and waiting doesn’t get you anywhere.
