Self-Love is an energy and identity you must CHOOSE to embody everyday NOT something you work towards and hope one day you wake up with no worries or problems judgments or fears or any other negativity towards yourself or your life.
Like any results you seek, it’s rare that the achievement is constant.
Let me explain...
When you make your first $1 you are likely to spend a dollar or had to spend many dollars to get there, therefore the $1 you made must be kept through consistent effort.
When you change your body shape, you are likely to see fluctuations occur when both building and leaning out, in order to sustain the visible changes, you must sustain the patterns which got you there.
When you get a good grade in a class or a nice job review, this was an accumulation of many well executed tasks.
When you are in a relationship with another soul, you may always feel a desire towards them but the relationship doesn’t always stay perfect, it requires energy to be invested over and over again.
Most relative, when you are working to develop the relationship you have with yourself, you are going to experience some hardships, this doesn’t mean the love disappeared but it could be felt a little less powerfully than usual.
I used to think that as a self-love, mindset, and confidence coach (in harmony with Fitness and nutrition) I couldn’t talk about my body image or self esteem when it was suffering. I thought that I could only talk about how much I LOVE myself and my journey and everything in between no matter what.
But it hit me that, I know what true self love is, and it’s not about running FROM pain but rather INTO it.
I will tell you right now, I feel better about myself when I’m lean and can see veins and striations and muscle definition and have a flat stomach and ab lines. But I’ll also tell you that this isn’t my reality year round, and a stage lean body is NOT a healthfully sustained body. And when I took progress pictures to send to my own coach for an off season plan (all coaches need coaches!), I felt so self-conscious of my belly!
So, In order to express love to myself I must accept this first and find and express LOVE in other parts of myself and my journey.
I recently have been struggling with my body image and the way I feel when I look in the mirror and see my stomach which has been bloated since stepping of stage or feel my body as it hurts to the touch from overeating one day or having been sick immediately after my show and being effed up mentally from not being able to go to the gym as it’s so deeply rooted in my identity.
But this does NOT mean I don’t love myself. It doesn’t mean I don’t show love to myself through other positive actions or words. It doesn’t mean I am not capable of CHOOSING to run through these problems addressing them head on even though they are painful and make me uncomfortable.
BECAUSE I love myself, I choose to talk to my loved ones about what I’m feeling, I choose to evaluate the situation in my head and how real it is, I choose to question my perceptions, I choose to realign with my values and beliefs...I CHOOSE to love myself consciously, EVERY day because it is truly the path to the most freeing, healthy, and empowered lifestyle.
The same goes for you, we aren’t different. You can choose to consciously love yourself today and everyday. You can choose to confront the problems that cause you pain everyday. Or you can choose to stay in self-loathe alone and exhausted.
It isn’t always easy to choose love when you feel hate, trust me i know!
But just because it isn’t always easy doesn’t mean you aren’t always capable...
I’m on a mission to raise the vibration of self love on this planet and within the universe and you know if you are a part of that mission...
