[THAT'S NOT LOVE] My issues with the Body Positive Movement and how it is affecting a lot of people
[THAT'S NOT LOVE]
Something has been weighing on my heart and I need to release it.
May ruffle some feathers but in my heart I know someone somewhere needs to read this and will appreciate my honesty.
It's about the #bodypositive movement...
I've been seeing a lot of posts lately where women are discussing their new found love for their bodies (of course some men too).
I get sooo excited and happy and warm and fuzzy when I hear people talking about HOW MUCH they love their body! Until I continue reading or seeing what they're up to and I learn, it's not real love...
What I'm finding is that so many people are okay with where they are at without any desire to better themselves anymore because "I love my body now so it's perfect exactly as it is". I'm sorry buttttttt this is just a great cover, a beautiful sounding excuse to stay where you are or quite frankly, get worse.
What do I mean? I mean, there are women, extremely overweight, underweight, or just downright unhealthy being 'in love' with their bodies after 'hating' it for so long.
I'm sorry, but what does that even mean at this point? You 'love' your body? Please ask yourself what love truly means to you. Because this ain't love.
If you truly loved your body you would make a point to be healthier and more fit so your soul could live in a safe house and thrive...
If you truly loved your body you would respect it by fueling it properly and conditioning it to perform more confidently...
If you truly loved your body you would recognize the fact that your current condition is not actually what you deserve, and you actually deserve better...
If you truly loved your body you would understand its ins and outs and then do everything in your power with your circumstance to find your balance, health, wellbeing, and life...
If you truly loved your body, you'd love it enough to change...
So consider this,
Love and appreciate your body, in all its forms, but also love it enough to recognize where it needs to be, and where it needs to change, to thrive and serve YOU and YOUR SOUL at the highest level.
Building More Than Just a Body is NEVER about neglecting the body. It is about CARING for the body by focusing on the whole spirit of the journey without being wrapped up on the outer image.
It's about focusing on your best confidence, self love, success, mindset, behavior, habits, wellbeing and more and then aligning that powerful inner work with the physical result driven by the root of improved health, daily living, performance, nutrition, and exercise.
So while I agree it's not about having the 'perfect body' that does NOT mean you allow your body to serve you imperfectly.
It's not the image that matters or the shape that I care about as much as it is YOU, YOUR SOUL HOUSE, and YOUR LIFE.
Often times the shape and image follows. The body is the bonus, it's the result of truly loving your body enough to give it the attention, love, and care it deserves.
Your self love, self confidence, and self worth goes up when you show yourself love, show yourself worth, and do it confidently knowing that your best self is already within you and all you have left to do is release her.
So, release her.

P.S. How perfect is this quote? Totally aligned with my message.
If I'm being honest, a lot of successful people will get you feeling all warm and fuzzy and connected to them by saying, "I'm no different than you" but let me be real and tell you something you need to hear...
Successful people commit and take action and do whatever they need to do to get their shit done.
Unsuccessful people talk about it, 'want' it, are not quick to jump in but very quick to 'wait for x,y,z' and waiver.
There IS a difference.
I say this because I love and believe in you and know everyone is capable of achieving their version of badassery (whatever that means for YOU).
And if I didn't say this you might think you're doing 'fine' but you're not. Not until you commit, invest, and take action. (Again I say this with love because I want you to be as awesome as you are meant to be and then some..)
I'm committed to serving people and I believe that not sharing this truth would be a disservice to you.
Get ready to jump. It all starts with belief.
You have to "Believe Your Way to Badass"
If you are ready for that. Then I'll let you know as soon as it's ready for you

STOP DRINKING YOUR OWN POISON
It's sad when people walk around their whole lives telling themselves lies, holding themselves back, and living in a place of what I like to refer to as comfortable discomfort.
Comfortable discomfort meaning, you are so uncomfortable in your own skin and or your own life that you become complacent about changing and just accept that:
"it is how it is"
"things will never change"
"I don't deserve to give myself what I want"
"I don't have time"
"I can't invest any time effort or money in myself because what if x what if y what if z"
"That won't work for me"
So you get comfortable in your bubble of discomfort. And you just allow negative thoughts and limiting beliefs to consume you. And you tell yourself and the world that 'it's just how I am'.
And with this complacency comes a decline.
Declining self love
You know those feelings...
Yeah, you know what I am talking about, don't you?
I mean, it's running through your head everyday after all...
..."I can't do that..."
..."I have to do this..."
..."That's not for me..."
..."I doubt that will work for me..."
..."I want to change but eh what's the point of trying anyways?..."
..."I'm too x..."
You know what you're really saying?
"I am not worthy"
"I am not deserving"
"I am not capable"
And most of all, "I'm not ready to receive the results I desire"
And here's what I don't understand...
Then you go on wondering:
"Why doesn't so and so respect me?"
"Why haven't I received x?"
"Why don't I have as much money coming in?"
"Why am I the one who always has to x?"
"Why doesn't anyone love me as deeply as I love them?"
"Why doesn't anyone make time for me like I do for them?"
Let me be honest with you...
The ONLY reason why is, YOU!
How can anything work out for you if you don't even make things work out for yourself?
How can anyone see you or make you a priority if you can't even do this for yourself?
Why would anyone think you're worthy if you don't even believe in your own worth and value?
Why would anyone give or do anything to or for you if you don't believe you deserve more?
How could anyone prioritize you if you don't prioritize yourself?
How can ANYTHING BETTER come into your life if you don't have any space for it?
You see, it's not about what you have right at this moment in time.
It's about what you're willing to create. What you're willing to believe.
And most of all, what actions you are willing to take so you can have exactly what you want and create all the love, success, accomplishment, validation, respect and whatever it is you desire from WITHIN.
It's at your core.
It's in your heart center.
You are the root of everything in your life and if you don't like what's growing, somethings got to change.
Are you ready to change?
I mean, TRULY, are you COMMITTED to change?
Are you DONE talking about what you "want" and committed to showing the world, the universe, and YOURSELF what you deserve by TAKING it for yourself right now?
Then take it, with unshakable belief that it is YOURS TO TAKE.

Do I ever get haters? Check out these comments on my YouTube video sharing my suicide attempt story.
Sometimes this makes people feel BETTER. We have to STOP raising victimization and START raising strong, brave, UNAPOLOGETIC, self love so that we can not only shrug this off with confidence and belief in ourselves but also so we do not feel the need to say things like this to others.
Always remember if people hate on you there could be many reasons and usually more than one:
A. You're doing something right
B. You're polarizing with your reality, your story, and truths without blurring the lines so it will either repel or attract people
C. They have their own issues to deal with
I don't get upset with people who do this or have done this because you can either:
A. Make yourself a victim and give into what people say and give them the power to determine your worth.
B. Laugh because you're the only one who determines your value and worth. And you are comfortable and confident in who you are.
Here's the sad part:
They could genuinely use someone's help but wouldn't be willing to have it. And we are not able to truly learn or listen unless we are actually ready to receive and understand.
So all I got to say, again, is love yourself, because the more love we have within then the more love we can radiate out to the world and in return the more love we can receive.

Please share this with someone who has or is or may be struggling with things like this.
P.S. what you FOCUS on you FIND. This is why every day I focus on love, gratitude, and abundance of positivity.
And as my last post mentioned, there has been SOOO much of it. If you put it on a scale it would probably catapult the weirdos and the haters.
