Taken seconds apart but you'll likely make a quick decision on which "one" you like best. Why do we do this? Why does one have to be considered better than the other? It's just two pictures of me standing differently. One is NOT more beautiful than the other, and this is the misconception we all have.
-
I learned in psychology that we favour the more average something looks. If you took a spectrum and placed everyone on a line, the features that are most "average", the ones in the middle of the spectrum would be favoured. This combined with society glamourizing certain features and making you feel bad about not having them in order for you to be a consumer of products they offer. We get programmed to not believe we are enough unless we have these exact features, which only a small fraction of people have.
-
I know myself along with many other women, even men have struggled with this. Constantly working on trying to "fix" yourself just so you'll fit into this box of what beauty is defined as. We place all our self-worth and confidence on something externally, to finally be approved by the world, defined as beautiful and thus "happy."
-
We base our happiness on the opinion of others which in return shapes the opinion you have of yourself. Could you imagine the kind of life you would have if you didn't feel this external and even internal pressure to constantly look a certain way? To constantly fit into a box?
-
Yes, certain features are favoured, but that doesn't define what beauty is. It doesn't define who you are and the impact you can have the world. You are born the way you are to be the best possible version of yourself not constantly chasing ways to change yourself and conform to what you think you should be.

I love my body. It is strong and beautiful. I am lucky. Not just for my fat deposits, but for my musculature. For the fact that I can work very hard and my body doesn't give out on me until it's very, very tired... I'm plus size. I wear at least a size 16. I weigh more than 200 pounds... For years I was ashamed of these things. I was embarrassed. The women who were proud to take photos of their bodies and bits didn't look like me... I'm lucky to look like this now, but when I was 16, I still looked like this... but I wasn't lucky. The world changed. The world adapted to fit me being beautiful, because when I was growing up, the person you see here wasn't acceptable... So when you look in the mirror and see someone who doesn't look like me... Someone who you've never seen share photos or actually admit their size... That doesn't mean you aren't beautiful, and that you aren't lucky to have the flesh you have. It just means that you should take those photos and put them out there... So you can be the change.

3/5: You have to expect great things of yourself before you can do them. #michaeljordan. What quality best describes your confidence? #greatness #mondaymotivation

Noble and great. Courageous and determined. Faithful and fearless. That is who you are and who you have always been. And understanding it can change your life, because this knowledge carries a confidence that cannot be duplicated any other way.

Another reason you need self-confidence as an entrepreneur and young professional is to ensure you have a positive attitude. When you start a business or a career, it is easy to allow fears and doubts to keep you from achieving success. Individuals with high levels of confidence in themselves have a positive attitude, which helps them to push fear and doubt away. With a positive attitude, entrepreneurs can push towards success.

Hi unfiltered perfect body, I love your self harm scars, I love your uneven skin. Do I wear far too many bodysuits? Yes of course, because I like them and feel good in them. We're too quick to judge people for doing what they love, and if I want to dress this way... Let me, don't shame me.

And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.πŸ¦‹

I am reborn in every moment so who know what I'll become?
.
.
I am a wildflower. My shape, my direction, my entity changes every single moment. I am reborn. New. Unique. .
.
People say we shouldn't change. We should stay the same. But we do change. We have to change. Not our heart but our perspective. I inhabit unknown things that turn to my passion. I adopt new philosophies that create a better world. I perceive the same things in a different way. Curiosity. Interest. Education. .
.
Wisdom nurtures me. I crave knowledge. I seek for learning new things. We don't stick to a circle that never ends. We grow. We change. We create. Again. Again. Again. Period. .
.
Don't be afraid of change. If you see a new side of yourself that you haven't seen before experience it. This is your time to butterfly. #lulusletter personal account @lulusdaydream .

Wow! No one can say curves aren't sexy! Stretch knit garter slip with faux-leather look, Venice lace center panel and power-mesh back. Amazing! Get it in your basket ready for launch day!

I challenge YOU to go out of your comfort zone. Say hello to the stranger next to you, introduce yourself to the owner of a company you dream of working for, read an article on a topic you don't know about, do 5 more minutes of cardio or lift that weight until your body literally can't past what your mind says you can. Maybe going out of your comfort zone is reminding your loved ones how much they mean to you, or instead of picking the negative things about yourself say 10 positive things. Wake up in the morning confident but ready to be pushed in every aspect of your life. Growth never came from comfort zones, literally and figuratively.

If I learned anything in LIFE is to always try & learn something new everyday. You might enjoy something that you always put off or ignore πŸ’­

Love getting updates from my challengers on Sundays! AHH "This week's stats total loss for week 2 is 6.6 lbs and 3.7. inches!" Did you read that?? Amazing things are happening especially when you follow and TRUST the process <3
I remember I use to put myself off and give myself every excuse in the book as to WHY I couldn't start a new program, why I couldn't prep my meals or workout. And ultimately put it off til Monday, Next week, when the kids go back to school, when vacation is over.. Yada yada yada.. Sound familiar?
BUT when you truly find something, like I have, that REALLY works. It's not a quick fix, it's not photoshopped results, there's no diet pills, wraps or any of that crap.. It's REAL lives, with people eating REAL food, doing REAL workouts that work your whole body and they are producing REAL results!
Wouldn't it be just make you feel on top of the world if you could experience these results too? Create a true CHANGE in your life? I'm always here ready to SHIFT your mindset and help you reach your goals! www.fitmotivatr.com/nofluff

I feel an overwhelming responsibility and deep down passion to help people grow, believe and achieve. I feel blessed to have learnt what I've learnt and to be able to continue learning and sharing my knowledge with those who need anything that I may have to offer ☺ but most exciting is reminding myself that the greatest way to teach is just to be. I learn the most from everyday interactions where no 'teaching' is taking place. We must remember that words are powerful but our greatest teaching comes from our being. How are you when you don't have an audience? When you're on your own, just you with you? Anyone can say or write inspirational words on Facebook or on a stage or in a classroom, but we teach others most when we're not trying to. Life is learning. Life is relationships. "We are all teaching each other by just being us". Isn't that so cool?
