I was going through my pictures today at work to show somebody a completely unrelated photo to the ones above when I came across a Facebook picture from an open house party that my posing coach has each year. I went for the first time a year ago and she had another party yesterday. The pictures are a one year difference.
A main focus of mine for this month was to love myself where I am today. I’m doing this and I’m getting more comfortable making YouTube videos and sharing more of my life online. When I look back at the picture from a year ago I don’t hate myself. What I see is someone who is stepping out of her comfort zone and making friends with some amazing and very fit ladies.
When I look at the picture from yesterday I see a more confidant woman who is learning more about herself. I am working on building my confidence more everyday. I am working on stepping out of my comfort zone so I can grow and learn from others.
When I look at the pictures together it makes me think about my challenges over the last year and to know that I could have used the negative as an excuse to not move forward and to just give into temptation. Instead I used sadness and negativity to fuel my desire to succeed. I was starving to push past the bad stuff and prove that I was better than the negative comments others were saying about me. I can’t make everyone love me.this is a fact.but, I can love myself.
I was able to push through difficult times and not use it as an excuse to fail. I’m not saying it was easy and there is no way you can understand the challenges that other people have gone through or are going through. Everyone has a story or a situation they are working past. Nobody has it easy and when you earn what you get it makes it worth any sacrifices it took for you to get there.
I’m a fighter and I will not give up..this is just another chapter in my book of life. I love my body and all its capable of and I love the inner strength that I have. I one strong ass chick and so are you. I’m here if you need a shoulder to cry on or a hug to get you through the day.
Sending love and lots of hugs to everyone that needs or wants it.2 Comments » << Red Robin….YUM! Truth >>
