I have started writing again and today (Monday) is the day I put my words and plan into action.
Day 1, Series 3 – third times a charm, correct? Focused on making 3rd time the success. The Phat to Fit to Fabulous project has officially started and I feel fantastic about it! I need to do this because I do not want to wake up at 40 (which is not so far away) and still be feeling unhappy about the way I look. Who wants to live that way? I don’t know about you, but I believe we as women tend to tear ourselves apart, comparing ourselves to everyone around us thinking that they have it so easy…”If only I had her flat stomach and perfect ass” or “I wish I had her job since she is so successful” or “if only I had perfect boobs like her, my life would be so fabulous!”. I am sure the majority of us all do it in one small way or another as envy lives inside all of us. We all have insecurities, which in a weird way is comforting that we aren’t alone. If you are fortunate enough to not even have the thought cross your mind and feel that your life, body, face and mind are perfect in everyway and don’t require change…well bravo to you and I wouldn’t necessarily envy you as I would get bored with the lack of drama in your so called perfect life. I am not seeking perfection on this journey, I am seeking health, happiness and a sense of overall contentment when I look at my reflection physically and metaphorically speaking.
We as women are beautiful. We wouldn’t have men chasing after us, begging for our attention if we weren’t. What I know for sure is that we all have at least one thing that is completely unique and beautiful about each one of us, yet we tend to focus on the things we dislike or wish we could change. What we need to change is that. We need to find the one thing that we like most about ourselves and focus on that. The rest will follow suit. I bet if you take a look at your closest girlfriends, you could find about 1 million things that you love about them – it is easy, right? Clearly if they are your best girlfriends they are not only fabulous but your soulmates. They see the best in you, even when you find it impossible….so if you can’t listen to yourself, listen to them. They will tell you straight up that they wouldn’t have an ugly friend. Trust that until you find it in yourself. That’s what I do.
