The only thing standing between you and constant, nonstop happiness are your own thoughts.

Don't worry, you're not going to be positive, sunshine and rainbows all the time. You aren't bad for feeling down sometimes, nor have you failed in your spiritual journey if you have a negative day. You can't always just bounce around ignoring the struggles or the issues. Sometimes you have to look at the shit that's holding you back, you have to dive into the darkness. .
.
To clean your house, you have to first see the dirt.

What if instead of obsessing over what is wrong or what we'd like to change about ourselves, we obsessed ov r what we like about ourselves? How much time and energy do you spend self loathing, trying new ways to fix yourself, new diets, new disciplines, tearing yourself apart, agonizing? What if you took those hours and put them TOWARD your dream life? What if you channeled that energy into building up what you liked, expanding on the good? What could you accomplish if you obsessed over what you liked instead of what you hated?

My favorite quote of the moment is:
.
.
"Comparison is an act of violence against the self."
.
.
That is so poignant to me. Because it is violence, its assaulting who you are. Every time you tell yourself you aren't good enough, smart enough, dedicated enough, that that girl is prettier, that guy is stronger- you are emotionally abusing yourself, a psychological assault. Which is the worst kind because the body heals long before the mind does. And yet we do this to ourselves all day everyday. Small acts of violence, "why can't I ever get my hair to look like that? My skin sucks. Obesity runs in my family." To large acts of violence, "I'll never be successful. I wish I was anyone but myself."
.
.
Your mind is a war torn country. Put your weapons down. Enter into peace talks, negotiate a treaty with the cruel voice in your head.

What if the gap between who you are now and who you wanted to be inspired you rather than overwhelmed you? What if instead of agonizing over where you aren't yet, you were able to fully appreciate where you are? .
.
I think we are afraid that if we love ourselves as we are, if we find what's good and beautiful in our lives as they are, that we won't be inspired to change. We are afraid of current happiness because we are worried that will prevent future progress. But I also think that's what is holding us back and keeping us stuck. .
.
What if just the opposite is true? What if the only path to get to your dream life is loving your current life? I am certain that you cannot hate your current body into the body you want. That you cannot self loathe your way to self love. So what if instead of spending our days searching for how to change what we don't like, we spend our days searching for how to appreciate what we do like?

The hardest part about initiating lasting change in your life is believing that change is actually possible for you. So often we set our resolve, say "this is it, tomorrow's the day!" But then we sabotage ourselves, we make the choices we know we'll regret and we hide behind the "I can't because..." excuse. We keep ourselves in a state of purgatory, forever waiting for our lives to start.
.
.
Change isn't just for other people, good things aren't only for the lucky. You can have it too, but you have to be willing. There's a difference between wanting and willing. Be willing to believe that change is possible for you, and it will be. Because ultimately, your life boils down to four words:
.
.
"If you say so."

#throwback to those lean bean days! I think it may be time to get back into the bodybuilding game...

Self esteem isn't just an inner battle- your self worth spills out into EVERY area of your life, just like the idea of the butterfly effect. And the biggest thing is that we think we're the only one that feels that darkness, those secret shames. So we hide them and they fester, and we constantly compare ourselves with other people and how their lives look from the outside.

I'm so proud to team up with @koobey_love_heidi to bring you this amazing event! We have some incredibly powerful members of the community who will be standing up and telling their stories, raw and vulnerable, about their inner struggles. Shame needs the dark to survive, so we are going to shine a light on it, share how successful people overcame their own struggles, or how they still combat it and how you can too. Message me for more info or email selfesteemeffect@yahoo.com

We'd love to have you there!

When we feel unloveable, we search for love outside of ourselves. But the same need that pushes us to search keeps us from ever finding it. Have you ever been looking for something you lost, frantically scrambling from room to room, fully convinced you'll never see it again; and then when you finally give up and stop looking, you stumble across it somewhere you'd already looked several times? It's the same principle. When you are convinced of your unloveableness, you will never find love. You won't see what's already there. Because even if you do find love, you'll doubt it, test it, think it's fragile, feel you don't deserve it; the same ego that tells you to search for love also makes you run from it when you see it coming. .
.

Love isn't outside of you. You can't find it in another person, a job, an accomplishment. It's within you, AS you. Love isn't a noun to be earned, won, bought, or found. It's a state of being. You can't find love outside of yourself because you ARE love, and until you can see that, you can't see it anywhere.

If you think something is missing from any situation, circumstance, or relationship, it's probably you. Do you feel unsupported? How much are you supporting? Unappreciated? How often do you express your gratitude? Do you feel invisible? How well do you even see yourself? Whatever you are noticing a lack of, it's because you don't have it WITHIN yourself. No fulfillment can be found outside of ourselves. Pay attention to what you feel is missing from your life, and rather than trying to control or manipulate others into providing it for you, find ways to feel it for yourself. And only then will you see it reflected back at you

It's easier to shut yourself down than to fail. It's easier to shatter yourself than to be shattered by someone else. It's easier to not allow yourself to dream than to feel the ache of a desire you don't believe you can have. But telling yourself "it's not gonna work out anyway so what's the point?" doesn't protect you. It doesn't keep you safe. Because if you don't ever even try, then you'll never know whether or not you can fly.

Red lips and a fuzzy growing out 'hawk. It felt like time. Except this humidity has me perfecting my impression of a dandelion #chiapet #justaddwater #yesimwatchingdexter

Here's the deal, you're going to live ever after. You may as well decide to make it happily ever after. It's up to you. .
