I've had conversations with some ladies today that feel empty where they are right now. They don't feel passion for the company they're with. They're afraid of starting from ground zero. They're afraid of what people may say or if people will support them with their new journey. They are holding themselves back from being happy or successful because they are indecisive. Because they don't believe in themselves enough. Because, as they will admit, they are holding on the excuses.
The ONE and ONLY tip I can give you while deciding on the big things in life....is PRAY.🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
Pray about it.
Let God show you. Let God open your eyes.
Let God use you to shine in His name. Let God guide you on the journey HE paved for you. God gave you passion to direct you on your journey.
You deserve to be as happy as a unicorn eating cake on a rainbow. 🦄🍰🌈✨
I've never shared this. Ever. To anyone. In both pictures I was absolutely starving....
These are 2 extremes of what I've walked through: both left me empty, depleted, depressed and anxious almost every single day.
Maybe you look at the first picture and think "You looked amazing!"
I was 97lbs, wearing a girl's size 14 jeans and I was eating just enough to push through 3 workouts a day and "saving my calories" for my weekend escape of partying. 1 calorie over my self imposed, EXTREME minimum and I was in a downward spiral: self hate on high.
"You're so lucky to be able to wear all the cute clothes!"
"I'd kill for your body."
My mind told me this was proof I was accepted, I fit in, I was worthy, I was valued: all things I desperately sought.
The second picture was the result of the abuse I put my body through + some of the hardest years our family has ever faced. I was 65lbs overweight when I stopped keeping track. I had hit a point where I was literally starving myself and my mind and body would no longer, COULD no longer, handle it. So I let go... and I gave up the "perfect facade" only to replace it with more self abusive behaviors. I covered my insecurities with more layers of me.... I was emotionally starving once again.
People left me alone.
"You'll never be good enough" my inner tapes told me again and again...
It wasn't until 4 years ago I actually met myself. I had to fix my mind before I fixed my shell. I had to find my worth before I let go of the hate. I had to find my power before I healed myself.
I get it. I get your fears, your insecurities, your self abusive thoughts. I get YOU. And I'm here to tell you it's time to let all that shit go and get to know yourself once and for all.
I do my best thinking here... or 10 minutes after I go to bed, or in the shower... oooor in my car. But I digress..
Sitting in this chair gave me so much clarity today. As women we spend too much time trying to "fix" others opinions of us. We put too much thought into figuring out WHY someone doesn't like us. We lose too many moments comparing our reflection to others. Why? Seriously, why? Because I don't have a solid answer.
Who told us we weren't good enough and, more importantly, who the hell made THEM on expert on our lives?
People will dislike you simply because you are you. People will talk about you because they have nothing better to do. People will try to tear you down to make themselves feel better. You can't stop that: that's not your responsibility.
Your responsibility is being the kind of woman who can meet her reflection straight in the mirror and give it a wink. That inner power is more precious than gold and we must fight like hell to cultivate and protect it.
What others think of you is none of your business. Because that's THEIR perception and not YOUR reality. Ya feel me?
Don't dull yourself down to make others feel comfortable. Shine, baby... Shine! There's EVERYTHING right with stepping into your greater self. Everyone has the same opportunity to do better + change: Whether they choose to step up or just squint is up to them, not you.
NEVER, never let anyone make you feel bad for evolving.
The world needs your light. 🎇🔦💡🕯🌟✨
😡PSA from a #UniornCEO to every magazine, tv commercial, social media image, and internal messages our society is sending every AMAZING woman in the world:
REAL adult women are NOT ONLY a size 2-4. As a matter of fact 10-12 IS the beautiful norm. We should not feel "less than" for not fitting into a mold airbrushed and forced in front of our faces everywhere we look. We should not feel like molding our bodies to fit your "standard" will make us more beautiful.
💖💖💖Women stand up and LOVE who the heck you are RIGHT this moment: not perpetually "I will when I lose 5 more lbs". 💖💖💖
Taking a note from Cara Alwill Leyba....✨💕
"Today is a powerful day, according to astrology. We are not only entering a new moon phase, but we are experiencing a solar eclipse - one of the biggest in years.
I read an article this morning claiming that today's eclipse will be THE most significant event in our lifetimes for manifesting. The rules are: we must get extremely clear on what we want.
So I asked myself: what do you want?
I know what I'd like more of, and that's more of THIS. More of feeling good, more high vibrations, more pure energy, more love in the universe, more divine & positive connections between humankind, more feeling good in my body and my mind, more success and celebration."
These last few days, y'all. .... I can't even.
Being partnered with an incredible company is amazing, but to be surrounded by so many inspiring, hard-working, integrity-filled souls is something I'll never accurately express enough gratitude for.
I want to shout from the rooftops how remarkable each and every one of the phenomenal women I connected with this weekend are.
Y'all know how to make this girl feel #VIP. You filled my cup.
I can't wrap mind around the amount of people who came up to me to share a hug, some beautiful words, snap a pic, express something I've sparked in them... I realized my "Dream" life's work is a REALITY. I'm inspiring women to "DO the damn thang" and follow their bliss.
