It’s #MotivationMonday! A brand new day in a brand new week. I have been crazy busy lately, slogging through my workouts without a very good attitude. Maybe you are too? Or maybe you’ve gotten off track as life has presented challenges.
Or maybe you’ve gotten caught back up in the comparison game. Again. It’s easy to do (just speaking from experience here…).
You think you’ll never be as thin as so and so. You’ll never be as svelte as your cousin because you have strong, thick calves. You worry you’ll never be as pretty as your neighbor because of your gray hair or dark circles, or birthmark…
I want to give you a kick in the pants today to stop. Just stop. There’s always (ALWAYS!) going to be another “or”. Banish that line of thinking. When you hear yourself thinking those thoughts, replace them with these.
There is no such thing as perfection.
I am already beautiful.
God made me this way to be appealing to the one that loves me.
I am beloved, fearfully and wonderfully made.
I am only competing with myself.
My job is to be the best version of me I can be.
I’m an original. No one can take my place.
Don’t waste another moment, another second, not loving yourself. Appreciate the body you’re in even if it needs some work. Why? Because God loves you! He doesn’t make junk! And, He has a purpose for you.
Rejecting the body He gave you is rejecting His gift!
It took me a long, long time to get the message in the image above. That I don’t want someone else’s body. That I just want the best version of mine. But, once I did, health and fitness got SO much easier. And I know it will for you, too.
So stop. Just stop! Banish those negative thoughts. You can do it! I believe it YOU!
