Something came up for me during a conversation with a client that I wanted to riff on because I think it's something we all need to hear sometimes.
"No matter what the point of life may be, I think we should all agree it isn't to be the most beautiful or tiny." @thefuckitdiet
Sometimes we get so lost in the insanity (yes, it is insanity) of:
- losing that last 10lbs
- feeling or looking leaner
- sticking religiously to a certain food plan or diet
- wishing our lips were fuller
- wishing or noses were smaller
- wishing our cheekbones were higher
- wishing our thighs were smaller
- wishing our skin was clearer
- wishing we looked or were younger
you get the point.... I could go on and on..
But when we're in our heads wishing, hoping, obsessing over these things we not only take up space that could be used for useful things, we forget that we are multi-dimensional beings of stardust that are here to fulfill amazing purposes and do rad things, like...
make babies, love each other, travel the world, hold doors open for people, hold each other, pet dogs, love cats, take care of our aging parents, teach teenagers how to be good people, cook dinner for our families, and literally so much more.
Ladies! Let's wake up!
- The size of your belly doesn’t matter.
- The fact that your thighs rub together when you walk doesn't matter.
- The symmetry of your face doesn't matter.
- These are all just surface level stuff.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to be healthy, our bodies want to be wholly healthy too, but when our preoccupation with these precious physical forms overrides our ability to be who we are, right now, in the moment and takes away our inner knowing that we are freaking, amazing, wondrous beings whose every breath and heartbeat is a mystery we lose the magic of everyday life. And, therefore, stop feeling the wonder of everyday life.
You are magic. You are enough.
Your purpose is not to be beautiful or tiny or lean or have perfect feet (or perfect anything for that matter) your job is to be you and love you.
I love you. You're incredible.
