It’s taken me years to feel this confident and happy with myself and in my own skin. 32 years to be precise (I’m 33 this week so you can do the maths ). I’ve been fed a certain story all my life, and if something is repeated constantly in your head, it becomes true, you make it your reality. I’ve been told I’m fat, constantly reminded that my body isn’t perfect, I’ve been judged, had judgmental looks thrown at me, all since very early childhood. So what’s changed now. If you know me, you know I don’t do diets (not anymore!), I enjoy a tough workout but I get bored of routine workouts, I don’t restrict what I eat (again not anymore!). I learnt that the story that’s been created for me and that was engraved into my mind doesn’t have to be permanent. I can change that story and I can do it right away. After all, it’s my story so I should be able to have control over it and change it. And that’s what I did. I did the inner work, I refuse to be judged again and refuse to accept it again. My skin, my body, my shape, my mind, it’s all mine. Once I started with the inner work, the rest was kind of falling into place, relationship with food has improved, keeping active has become fun, I no longer have to force myself to be active, I look forward to it because it’s all about me. I appreciate my body, I treat it with love, I’m grateful to have it because it’s allowing me to fulfil my purpose. Why I’m sharing this with you though. Because I want you to know that you can be who you want to be, who you deserve and desire to be. You’ve just got to decide to be that person today.
