This is how I feel about:
♡ diets & food fads
♡ needing to be the 'nice girl'
♡ body hate
♡ lack of self-responsibility
♡ PERFECTION & perfectionism
♡ over-analysis & indecision
♡ body shaming & body policing
♡ feeling stuck
♡ not speaking/living your truth
♡ disowning/rejecting parts of yourself
♡ over-giving & having no (bloody beautiful) boundaries 👊
I'm sure there are a *few* (😜) more things I could make this face to, but this is a good start.
To reshape your body, you don't need to go on another diet ..
To stop feeling as though you're living in your own personal Groundhog day, you don't need to lose weight or get a bikini body ..
To quit binge eating and emotional eating, you don't need to go harder at with your workouts ..
To find your 'purpose', you don't need to get stricter with your food .. What will actually help you long term is saying FUCK THAT to ...
◇ diet bandwagons (there's actually no bandwagon to fall off fyi!) & food fads
◇ body hate, body shaming & body policing
◇ needing to be liked/the 'nice girl'
◇ self-doubt & over-analysing every single decision you make - from food choices to what you said to your boss last week
◇ perfectionism .. because around the corner from every restriction is rebellion (i.e. your self-expression coming out 'sideways'!)
◇ constantly choosing others and *THEIR* needs over your own - thereby not talking sexy self-responsibility AND rejecting yourself, consistently .. leading to even less self-trust and even more self-doubt
◇ suppressing your guidance, urges, needs, desires & feminine expression
Here's my truth:
I stand for being in integrity & authenticity in everything I do, say & be.
I'm playful, cheeky, funny & cooky .. as well as serious, focused, direct & fiesty .. I'm a paradox! (A super fun one! 😀)
I stand for women expressing themselves FULLY .. and given point 1, I must be willing to fully express MYSELF first - especially when it's uncomfortable!
I don't believe there is one way of doing *ANYTHING* that works for everyone - the one common factor between all humans is uniqueness and it's well time we embraced & took pride in it .. [continued in comments]
