My thoughts and projects come from seedlings that begin with conversations that I have with you. Your words start to formulate in my mind and I hear what you say and I have to find a way to move you forward. My brain just starts to fire up. Today we start our next project and the main subject is you.
I want to talk about SELF WORTH. Sure it’s for easy to say: It starts from within. Dig deep. It has to come from you. But what if you never had it? What if you are the person who didn’t grow up with it? What if your parents didn’t instill self worth in your being and then you went on to relationships that allowed you to stay beneath it all. How are you supposed to dig deep to find what doesn’t exist? You’re not good enough. You’re not pretty enough and the world will eat you up and make you believe it’s your fault since you aren’t strong enough to fight back. UGH, shame on them! That’s abuse of the weak. You cannot make a change because you have no clue where to start and when you leave the company of the positive you go right back to the blanket and sofa. You are safer being lost.
Where do you start? #projectprettyinsideandout.
Here’s what I will ask you to do. First. Sign a contract with yourself and date it. Write it on a piece of paper or send a text to yourself, but you have to write it to get it out in to the universe. Here is one that I had a friend write and we both signed it today: I, ___________, will release X pounds by February 29th (my birthday), I am promising myself to attempt to like myself a little more each day. While today I don’t feel worthy, I know I should for the sake of myself and my boys. I am going to to commit to change. I am going to release the fear of success and embrace the unknown by Memorial Day weekend, for real. No more bullshit. I own myself! Dated and signed today!
Now we begin the journey to not digging deep from within, but doing the work required to build a body, mind and soul that you will actually like. Then admire. Then love. It will be hard but you are worth the work. Get out of bed. Take care of your outside. If your outside depressed like your inside that’s all anyone will see. You don’t feel like getting dressed. Do it anyway. Dress as if you are already there. Let’s trick yourself. Let’s do this every day until you actually do feel as you look. Sometimes we have to break open the mind to get the body to move, but other times we have to break open the body so the mind has something to believe in that’s possible. It’s 2016. Don’t you think it’s time? I do. Check out our Facebook page for steps in to a New You.
See you in great shape,
