I posted this picture of Facebook as a profile picture last week. It took some coaxing from a friend for me to post this picture at first and the reason was because I was picking myself apart. I was looking at the negative. I thought I had a goofy smile on my face and I don’t like the way that top looks. My friend who took the picture was taking it so I could see how a bra was fitting (we were bra shopping). We are visual girls and take pictures a lot. The first thing she noticed was the muscle I’m building.
I noticing the muscle after I looked for the negative. Why do I do this to myself. Why can’t I see the positive before I start to look for negative things? Why look for negative in the first place? I posted it on Facebook and I got some really positive feedback and it made me happy that I looked past my negative thoughts and shared something positive with other people.
I know I am learning about myself and my body and I’m making changes for the better. I’m so excited about what 2013 is going to bring. I’m already looking at shows for next year and I think I have a plan all set in place for a summer (and possibly a fall) show. I have a great support system and what makes this whole journey amazing is that I am going against myself. I have people that are following my progress and making changes in their own lives because of me. My husband has lost of 50lbs because he knew it was possible because I was doing it.
I can’t possibly explain how amazing that makes me feel. I have decided to look at things in a positive way.no negativity allowed around here! It feels like a weight is lifted off my shoulders just by making that commitment to you on here. It is a commitment.no negative talk and I will do everything in my power to stay positive and learn to love myself the way I am right now! I can’t promise that every day will be perfect but I will promise that I will give my all to becoming more positive and less negative to myself on a daily basis. Join me in this commitment and if you share a photo on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, your blog or anywhere else please let me know I would love to see it.email me if you are afraid to share on social media. We will get through this together.3 Comments » << Playing Catch Up You Are NOT the Father! >>
