[dropcap]I[/dropcap]t’s crazy to me how the 4 or 5 pounds that my body naturally fluctuates troubles me so much when I get to what I deem to be the unlovable end of that fluctuation.
The violence that is my family of origin warning me constantly as a child about the dangers of my own body taking up ever so much more space… letting me know I was “getting a bit chubby” because of my food choices. Yet they were the ones that purchased the food, that ate the foods that I later learned were a fast way to disease and obesity, not the road to health and wellness.
They were the ones teaching me how to eat, how to live, how to love my body and they were failing as my examples…. All ‘white bread and diets’.
Evolution and Self Love
The ever evolving, intuitive, self-loving, bad ass woman that I have grown to become knows this is utter dog shit. She knows that we are lovable the moment we decide that we are lovable… knows that we are lovable the moment we are brave enough to start loving ourselves.
The ever evolving, intuitive, self-loving, bad ass woman that I have grown to become knows that we are worthy of the space we inhabit and all of the love that we have to give, that we so easily give to everyone else, the moment we decide that we are worthy.
Being worthy of love and respect is not about accomplishments, dress size, or the numbers on a scale. When we learn to have compassion for our own humanness, when we learn to love ourselves without condition… we unconsciously teach others how to love us… we vibrate higher and attract higher energy people into our lives.
Most importantly, we free ourselves from the self-imposed prison of our own judgement. Most importantly, we are free to spread our wings and fly.
I Invite You…
To grow into the beautiful spirit that you already are.
To have compassion for your humanness; to bravely love yourself regardless of what you’ve been taught about self-love.
To tell your inner critic to go kick rocks; tell her that you are 100% beautiful and lovable just the way you are.
To become who you’ve always been.
You. You are nothing short of beautiful.
Join me. Together, let’s keep growing. Evolving. Living. Loving. Becoming…
