I find that the language I use with myself really makes a difference. In my head or out loud I am saying things that would not forward me....I tend to go down that road. If I change my language and thought process....I really start to believe it and see it. That is my challenge for you and me from this day forward. Be kind to yourself, start to love yourself. When you start to see yourself the way you want to be seen, people will start to see it also. It is amazing how we can give all the love to others, make sure they feel good about themselves, that their confidence is strong; and what do we do to ourselves...we hate and loath ourselves. It is quite sad if you really stop to think about it. For years I will tell myself how stupid I am how ugly and disgusting my body is, who is going to want me or take me
seriously. I am not good enough to have the good things happen to me...I deserve all the bad stuff in my life because I am not good enough. Well, I did that for years...to many years. I will be 45 in July that shows you how many years wasted. So, I have been working on myself, reading self development books. Books that are going to help me see that I am perfect, I am worth it, I am someone special who can have it all. I constantly find
quotes that are always uplifting and I will share them on facebook. I never put anything negative up where I can see it; it always has to be positive. Louise L. Hay is a fantastic author, she wrote the book "You Can Heal Your Life". This book will allow you to look at your life and show you how to use positive affirmations. Whatever is holding you back, you can start to change that behavior or thought process. This is one of the first books I read to get me on the path of loving and respecting myself. It really doesn't matter what size we are...what matters is how we feel about ourselves and how we treat ourselves. That was one of the biggest obstacles I had to overcome. I have hated on my body since I was 11 years old. I had gotten really sick with my asthma; I had been on steroids for a long period of time. In that year I went through puberty and I have hated my body ever since. 34 years of self loathing...that's crazy...if that was anyone of my friends, I would have built them up...told them how beautiful they were. But to myself, just the opposite. But NOT
TODAY!!! From this day forward it is nothing but love and enjoying the journey I have started. I hope that you are with me and you start seeing yourself as beautiful, strong, confident women who can do and achieve anything!!! So, yesterday I was on track....I did exactly as I said I would. I ate healthy, drank 109 oz in water, I worked out at Anytime
Fitness...and I am feeling great. Yesterday was a beautiful day, so at lunch after my workout...I had a little picnic with myself...sat in the sun on a little blanket I had in the car and ate my grilled chicken salad. I felt like a queen being able to take that little bit of time for myself. It was an amazing day, nothing but opportunity kept coming my way.
Changing your mindset is one of the most important things you can do for your journey...I know that is how it has been for me.
Okay my friends share with me your stories....let me hear from you. I can't wait to see what you are all up to and what your goals are. See YOU TOMORROW!!!
