What messages do you tell your body?
Does it sound anything like-
You should exercise more, why isn’t my stomach flatter?, why am I so damn uncomfortable in my jeans?, I’m too skinny, I’m too fat, I’m getting too many wrinkles, I hate the blemishes on my face, I’m not pretty enough.
Do you ever tell yourself I’ll love myself when….
I lose 5 pounds, I can see my abs, my skin is clear, I get rid of my cellulite, I have a boyfriend, I can easily fit into my jeans
I DARE you
Stand naked in front of the mirror
Let that talk (sh*t) come up
Get really uncomfortable in its discomfort
The longer you stand there you’ll eventually move from dissatisfaction and self loathing to self appreciation and acceptance
This is a practice
The results are not overnight
I challenge you to look deep into your eyes
This is the gateway into your soul
Beyond the physical body and any limitations you believe it has
Inside of you is a magical goddess waiting to be free from the shackles you have placed on her
Place one hand over your heart and one hand over your belly
Say one thing you are grateful for about her
See her. Recognize her. Trust she is your radiance waiting to be unleashed
Be patient with yourself, be patient with her
Each day is one step forward towards more kindness, compassion, trust, self acceptance
It’s a journey sister, this is your way home ✨
