jamie-2013This post is especially for the ladies as every woman I’ve had this conversation with struggles with exactly what I struggled with. (and still sometimes do) The picture on the left was taken exactly a year ago, the one on the right was today. You can see I’ve had a lot of physical changes, but what you can’t see is the changes that I made on the inside. (Which to me is wayyyyy more valuable than the physical changes) I’m proof that if you change your thoughts about yourself, the outside will follow. It’s really weird to me to have a conversation with someone else, to find out they have the same negative thoughts about them, as I did for myself. (I thought it was only me!) Thoughts like “I’m not good enough” “I’m not fast enough” “I’m not skinny enough” “I’m not a strong enough” “I’m not pretty enough”… and the list goes on and on and on. (Why and who put this into our brains!?!) For me every time someone would pay me a compliment I would think to myself “they are just saying that because they feel bad for me.” “They are just saying that because I’m the last to finish the workout” I had a list of excuses for myself at why someone would actually like who I was, because I didn’t like myself. The ending of 2012, I was at a crossroads with my weight loss, I was getting frustrated because I wasn’t going anywhere. I decided to take the plunge again and let myself be seen and critiqued in a different way. I hired someone to help me with my nutrition. His name is Aaron, and I’m extremely blessed to have him in my life. Little did I know, he would change my life. He saw me. He didn’t see everything I thought I was. (every negative thing out there!) I decided to listen to his advice and really make an effort to change my thoughts about myself. The first thing was accepting compliments. If someone paid me a compliment, all I had to do was smile and say thank you, regardless of if I believed the person or not. That taught me to accept love. As I kept doing that eventually my thoughts towards myself started to change. I was good enough. I am good enough. My advice to you, if you are thinking about the new year and what you can do better… #1… BE NICE TO YOURSELF!!! YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH!! Change the inside, the outside will follow. Bring on 2014!!!
