That feeling you get when you try on an old pair of jeans & they're too loose. 🙌🏻
So today I finally sorted through my summer clothes from last year and found out that barely anything fits like it used too! These used to be my fav/comfiest jeans - they were so comfy that I turned them into shorts when they started wearing out. & now the waist is super loose! 😮
I typically don't focus on the physical aspect of health and fitness but I can't help but share NSVs & what can happen with time & consistency and when you prioritize your health. ✨
I missed out on an opportunity today. An awesome opportunity. An opportunity to promote the Savour + Bloom Grounding Bracelets with a fabulous business woman who I admire very much. You know why I missed out this opportunity Because I didn’t feel like I was ‘enough’.
There have been so many exciting opportunities and events that I have missed over time, purely because I haven’t felt ‘worthy’. I have avoided attending or partaking in things that would have been good for me, for all of the following reasons:
- I’m too boring - I have no skills
- I’m too ugly - I’m not intelligent
- I’m not successful enough
- I have no conversation skills
- I don’t have the right things to wear
- I’m not qualified - I have no personality
These are all very awful things to feel, and are ultimately driven by fear and anxiety. I used to think that once I was ‘pretty enough’ or ‘successful enough’ I would be worthy to step out into the world and shine. The thing is, I don’t know that I will ever feel ‘pretty enough’ or ‘successful enough’. I have begun to realise that in order to get to another level, I will just need to get over myself and get out there, as I am RIGHT NOW.
I need to stop putting my life on hold and postponing wonderful opportunities until I feel like I am truly ‘good enough’. I need to train myself to believe that I am ‘enough’ as I am now; and that I DESERVE to live my best life. It is soooo difficult to wrap my head around this (I literally struggle with it EVERY DAY) but it is worth trying to remember and live by.
I once attended an event where I was surrounded by hundreds of glamorous and accomplished business women. I felt so inferior and shabby that I began to have a panic attack, and wanted to simply bust out and leave the joint. My daughter calmly made me take deep breaths, and reminded me that I deserved to be there JUST AS MUCH as anyone else.
I felt a sense of calm as she reminded me of this. If you find yourself struggling with the bullshit idea you’re not worthy; try to hold fast to the knowledge that you are already enough. Just as you are. Right now. This is what I am going to try my best to do. 🧡
You either want it or you don't. .
It's really that simple.
And this is coming from a girl that is AWFUL at picking where we're going to eat or what movie we're going to watch! 🤣
If you want to improve your health...just do it. Stop making excuses! Stop waiting for the right time!
I'm not just talking about working out and eating healthy...I'm also talking about your happiness, self-growth, relationships, and family.
To better yourself. 😘
Sometimes, though, that one thing is saying YES to an opportunity. The opportunity to join ME in my journey of self-improvement! My next accountability group is starting August 5th, and it is filling up fast! If you are ready to throw out your excuses, comment "I'm IN!" below! Or if you're shy (like me) go ahead and send me a message...I'll help ya get started! 😘
