I used to think I just needed to accept.
Accept my body that had changed. I became a mom and working mom at that.
Accept my new thoughts. I would never be how I was.
Accept my old flaws and new ones.
Accept the lack of confidence.
Accept the change in my personality.
Accept. But accepting was also another way of saying I’m settling. I give. White flag.
And it took about 8 times of other friends and coaches to convince me to TRY. To try to get out of my own way and realize that settling was MY OWN choice. It wasn’t going to happen by chance. Oh I had every excuse in the book. No time. I don’t want to eat that. What will people say. No time. Overwhelmed on where to start. No energy. No motivation. No time. No money. Wrong timing. Scared of failing. Did I say no time??? Since then I’ve realized you make time for what’s important. And it’s not about being the size I want. It’s about being the person I want to be. Inside and out.
I still fail all the time. I still eat cookies too much and might extend my “sure, I can do that” a lot too much. There’s that thing about that magical word, “NO”........ But I’m trying. That’s all that matters. I’m still moving forward. Some back but always forward.
If you are accepting/settling, think about it. You deserve to find your best you. Inside AND out. Package deal. To FEEL better. To LOOK better. The ups and the downs create THE best results. But it’s always better when you aren’t alone. Stop accepting and be open to trying.
Food for thought.... how WILLING are you to accept your unhappy settling mindset? Or are you WILLING to try to find your best version?
