Have you ever thought you were the only woman in the world who struggles with staying motivated, eating healthy, or just making time to go to the gym everyday? Does it seem there are not enough hours in the day? Do you feel like your life would just fall apart if you took even 30 minutes to yourself?
Life always seems to get in the way, doesn’t it? I’m here to tell you, you’re not alone. Women take on so much responsibility and feel guilty doing things they want to do. I know I do it.
I myself have been there.
I’ve struggled with being comfortable in my body my whole life. I can honestly say, it took 36 years before I was comfortable in my own skin. I remember thinking why do I have to work so hard to stay in shape? Why can’t I eat whatever I wanted like all my friends did? Why, why why? I have always been a thick woman. My legs especially!!
The day I stopped asking why and started loving myself for who I was (not who I thought everyone else wanted me to be) is the day it all changed!! I no longer worry what ANYONE thinks.
I do it for me and me only.
My perception on life even changed. The way I saw the world changed. Life just changed. I became a happier person. Those moments of self pity were a thought of the past. The desire or should I say will to improve who I was and wanted to become far outweighed the self loathing I had created in my head. This is what I hope for you…
I want to remind you how important you are!! How beautiful you are. I want to let you know that it is ok to take a break sometimes. I also, want to remind you how important it is to love yourself.
We’re so busy loving everyone around us and making sure the people in our lives are taking care of. We forget to take care of ourselves. You’re not being selfish if you want to live a happier, healthier life. You certainly are not selfish if you say “no” once in a while, either.
Keep your head high, Love with all of your heart. Dream big. Set goals. Dance in the rain. Hey, cry once in a while for no reason.. Let it out! Learn to grow in the darkest of hours. That is what makes you (us) beautiful women!!
Strength doesn’t always mean being strong. Strength to me means being stronger then I was yesterday. Laughing a little more. Not looking back, looking forward. Not letting anyone or anything keep you down. Continuing to grow. Finding peace. It means never giving up!!! NEVER. From this day forward live….Don’t just exist!!
