We Are Worthy

“The most dangerous stories we make up are the narratives that diminish our inherent worthiness. We must reclaim the truth about our lovability, divinity, and creativity.” – Brene Brown.

I saw this quote one day as I was scrolling through my phone, like the millennial I am, and it really resonated with me. As human beings we are not perfect; we are all different and need to strive to love ourselves and be happy in our own skin. In order to be comfortablwe-are-worthy-pinterest-graphice with ourselves we must be confident, and to gain confidence we must practice self-love and acceptance.

Practicing self-love and acceptance is not an easy feat! In my experience it takes focusing on the positives, being confident in what you can do, and the parts of your body that you really love. This is how it starts. Pick one thing you love about your body, your legs, butt, freckles, hair, it can be anything. Hold on to those positives and don’t dwell on your perceived “flaws”, chances are no one notices these “flaws” but you.

I picked my booty as my favorite part of my body. My big ole booty cheeks have dimples from cellulite and stretch marks from getting bigger (the “flaws”), but they also enable me to squat and deadlift hundreds of pounds (the positives). Maybe you love your muscular arms because as a mom you are always holding a baby, or maybe you love your legs because you are, or used to be, a dancer.

We also can’t focus on the past or how things used to look or feel.

I want you to take a minute to think about your past. Maybe your skin is wrinkled because you love the outdoors, but you wouldn’t trade a single wrinkle for a missed day outside, maybe your elbows hurt because you used to be one hell of a golfer, but you wouldn’t trade a single day because you made your closest friends playing golf, or maybe you have stretch marks across your tummy because you brought another HUMAN BEING into this world, but I bet every mom says it was more than worth it.

I am not saying that we should never have goals to change our bodies. If we want to be thinner, more muscular, or fit into a smaller dress size, that’s totally cool; the important thing is to set healthy goals and love our bodies as we try to achieve these goals. We can’t tell ourselves that we will love our bodies once we are 10 pounds lighter because then one of two things will happen. We will both not achieve the goal and be unhappy with ourselves, or we will achieve the goal, and tell ourselves that we will love ourselves when we are another 10 pounds lighter.screen-shot-2016-10-01-at-11-52-23-am

No matter what, we should love our bodies and the amazing things they can do! Once we start to love our bodies and treat them with kindness, our lifestyle changes. The more we love our bodies, the better care we give them. We can take our bodies out for more walks, take it to the gym, or fill it full of water and vegetables! These are the types of things we concern ourselves with when it comes to our kids and pets, so why not treat our bodies well out of love.

Whatever your story is, focus on the truth and the positives within that truth. Every inch of us is beautiful and loveable; we are worthy and need to make sure that the story we tell ourselves is one that does not diminish our success or divinity.
