Something that is often on my mind is my double chin 🤗 (there is no double chin emoji, so I’m imagining this emoji covering her double chin with her hands.. 😂). ”Why??” you may ask – because I hate it 🤬. So today’s post is simply about double chins and other parts on our bodies we do not like.
It sucks to say, but let’s be honest, we all have parts on our bodies which we do not like. But – this is the BIG difference: to hate and to dislike. A “hate” feels like a more definite “not coming back from it” mindset, and “dislike” leaves room for work and a mindset shift. In-between these is where I am at right now, and I want to be completely honest with you all about it! ❤️
There is no hiding that I’m on my own weightloss journey seeking to improve myself for my own wellbeing (both physically and mentally), and today I truly wanted to lift that we ALL have mind demons telling us we’re not enough. We don’t try hard enough, we don’t work hard enough, we’re not worthy of all the things we dream of, and we certainly have no place taking space. 📛
The longer I’m on this journey, the more I realize it’s the total OPPOSITE! ⚡ We are worthy just as we are!! But we are also allowed to still strive for even stronger versions of ourselves (and I intentionally DON’T choose the word “better”). I do not want to keep being so critical of myself and of my own body. I’m not doing it this way anymore. I have followed so many “shoulds” in my life, and that is no way to live.
Yes, I always pause for a second and look at it, the double chin, before I post. But then I also think to myself – what the f does it matter? I am posting because it can help as much as 1 person! Someone might actually be inspired and see that I, too, am working on myself FOR myself!! WOW! And because of this, I keep going no matter how many chins I have 😉🥳
Don’t stand in your own way. You never know who needs to hear exactly Your voice! ⚡️
Much love, strength & joy,
