i remember feeling self-conscious of my arms and the veins on my hands. i always felt awkward and hated my body. i would study the way that other girls stood, trying to feel less awkward CONSTANTLY. the times i looked in the mirror and thought to myself “i look cute” or “i look beautiful” and walked away feeling content were extremely RARE.. i literally want to cry thinking about how that was my reality because now, i think those things to myself everyday. not because i’m selfish, not because i’ve changed myself, but because of the way that i take care of myself. i love my body by taking care of it, and i have been doing personal development for months to get to this place.
im sitting here in indianapolis listening to so many amazing success stories of coaches that have worked their butts off to get where they are now, and i am just so happy. i am so genuinely confident and happy and excited for my future.
i am so grateful for how much i have grown already, but even more excited for how far i will continue to grow. i am ready to learn and grow, and i am DETERMINED to be a better me. im just thankful i decided to start now & not wait any longer to work on myself. if you relate to feeling self-conscious always, and not knowing how to love yourself, just know that you can do something about it. you can create change and you can learn to love yourself, just be patient with yourself and start trying.💛
