I’ve got a special topic for you today that I see SO many women struggle with, including myself – and it’s something incredibly important … and not always that easy to talk about.
It’s how YOU feel about your body … I mean REALLY feel about your body
“Body Positivity” is a hot topic nowadays …and I totally get it!
Your feelings about your body can get mixed up with how you feel about YOURSELF: your talents, your strengths, your personality, and your spirit.
And when you feel negative about your body, that can translate into feelings of general negativity and low self-esteem. I think we’ve all felt that at one point or another.
I’m going to start by opening up and getting personal. When I was 80 pounds heavier, I hated having my picture taken. I’ve avoided being in photos for decades, to the extent that my family joked I must be in the witness protection program. Can you relate to this?
And the worst thing is, those feelings can affect whether or not you keep working towards your goals and how well you take care of yourself.
Here’s the irony: when you start taking care of yourself and working towards your goals, the negativity and low self-esteem will start to shift into CONFIDENCE and a more positive view of your body.
It helps you to SHOW UP for yourself. You’ll start to treat yourself the way you’d treat any other person you love and admire.
It just takes a few brave steps in a positive direction.
When you believe in yourself, you DO THE THINGS YOU SAY YOU’RE GOING TO DO.
You show up for yourself, put in the work, meet your challenges, and get those WINS!
Remember: “body positivity” may be a trendy buzzword but taking great care of your body is always in style.
So, let’s focus on taking intentional steps toward our goals.
Is that a deal?
