Enough already! Enough with the self- loathing, the body shaming, the negative thinking. Enough with being just another person telling yourself that you’re not good enough.
What if we all practiced self love instead? What if we modeled self love instead of picking ourselves apart in front of the world and in private? What’s the picture you want to paint for your children? Do you want to teach them to hate themselves, or do you want to teach them to overcome the normal way or thinking and to love themselves?
God created each and every one of us in His image. You are beautiful/handsome just the way you are. It is true that there was only One who was perfect, so be aware of your faults. Strive to better yourself, but be kind to yourself along the journey!
In January I made a decision to get in shape. I will admit that my driving force then was the feeling that I got when I looked in the mirror. I cringed every time in disgust at how I had let myself go. And so I joined Beachbody and soon after became a coach myself. I am blessed that the team God placed me in promotes self love. So, find a tribe who will love you where you are, and who will show you how to love yourself better.
NOW HERE’S THE REALLY IMPORTANT PART! ARE YOU LISTENING?
You are beautiful. You are good enough, right now, just as you are. You don’t have to go down the checklist of things you want to change about yourself before you will someday be enough. You are already enough!
