This was in my personal development today and it spoke to me and I just felt the need to share.
You can choose to settle for a half-lived life because you don’t even know that there’s another way, or perhaps you have no idea how to pull yourself out of it. But please, please stop making excuses for the whys. Please stop telling yourself that you deserve this life. Please stop justifying a continued crappy existence simply because that’s the way it’s always been. Just as you have chosen to stay in this place for so long, you can choose to get yourself out of it.
You need to be healthy.
You don’t need to be thin. You don’t need to be a certain size or shape or look good in a bikini. You need to be able to run without feeling like you’re going to puke. You need to be able to walk up a flight of stairs without getting winded. You need to drink half your body weight in ounces of water every single day. You need to stretch and get good sleep and stop medicating every ache and pain. You need to stop filling your body with garbage like diet coke and fast food and lattes that are a million and a half calories. You need to take in fuel for your body that hasn’t been processed and fuel for your mind that is positive and encouraging. You need to get off the sofa or out of bed and move around. Get out of the fog that you have been living in and see you life for what it is.
Does your Creator love you as you are? Yes! But he gave you a body with all its strength, and even its weaknesses, as a gift. It is an offense to your soul to continue to treat yourself badly. - Rachel Hollis
