Not pictured: the absolute melt down I had last night trying to get dressed to go out. I flew into PA early yesterday afternoon. Immediately grabbed my things, the rental, hit the grocery store and came home to change. I was already tired, and cranky about having to come back east AGAIN and on such short notice. On top of that I went off birth control a week ago so my body is trying to recalibrate. Add all that up, cue melt down. Nothing fit. I felt FAT. I wanted to cry. I looked in the mirror and tugged at my clothing wondering what the hell has happened to my body. I almost bailed on hanging out with my friends because I felt FAT. How ridiculous is that? I inevitably picked myself up by the boot straps and made my way over there. Once I was there I had forgotten my mini melt down. Today it’s like I have a new body, or new eyes, because I’m not seeing the same person I did last night.
So why am I telling you all this? Because PERCEPTION IS REALITY. Did I lose a bunch of weight overnight? Uh nope. Did my attitude change? Uh yup.
So next time you find yourself in that negative self talk, try to talk yourself out of it. Try to say kind things to yourself, and you’d be amazed at how your body responses, because friends, your body HEARS YOU. ♥️ #selflove #selftalk #positive #positivity #loveyourself #bekind #bekindtoyourself #loveyou #perception #perceptionisreality
