Who do you want to be?
It’s such a simple question.
Most of us envision a version of ourselves with a bit more confidence… a version who is unapologetically HER... a version who doesn’t hide behind fear but lives through love… love for HERSELF because she allows herself to be seen for exactly who she is and she chases her dreams without worrying about what others might think.
I bet you crave being that person.
I bet you crave the freedom in just allowing yourself to BE.
I think we all do!
But we let fear get in our way.
Think about your childhood. I’m guessing you spent a big portion of it trying to fit in… often feeling like you weren’t enough. Not yet strong enough to just be YOU regardless if others accepted you or not… that thought way too painful.
Now think about your adulthood. Do you still feel those feelings? Feeling like you aren’t enough. Feeling like you’ll never be seen. Trying to fit in but often coming up short or maybe you’ve just given up trying all together.
Unfortunately, many of us grow up and remain in those same childhood patterns.
We’ve gotten used to hiding.
Nobody will see us anyway so why bother.
It feels safe.
It feels safe to be unable to move because of others.
We become victims to our stories because they keep us small.
And small is safe.
So we remain paralyzed.
Afraid to show up in this world the way we want.
WISHING so badly that people could just accept us and not judge us so we could feel “safe.”
Safe to be seen.
Not really understanding that the only true safety comes from within.
‘The Four Agreements’ says it all…
“Imagine living your life without fear of expressing your dreams… Imagine living your life without the fear of being judged by others. You no longer rule your behavior according to what others may think about you. You are no longer responsible for anyone's opinion. You have no need to control anyone, and no one controls you, either. Imagine living a life without judging others. You don’t have the need to be right, and you don't need to make anyone else wrong… Imagine living without the fear of loving and not being loved. You are no longer afraid to be rejected, and you don’t have the need to be accepted… You can walk in the world with your heart completely open, and not be afraid to be hurt… Imagine living your life without being afraid to take a risk and to explore life. You are not afraid to lose anything. You are not afraid to be alive…
ONLY LOVE HAS THE ABILITY TO PUT YOU IN THAT STATE OF BLISS.”
And that love begins with you. It begins with YOU SEEING YOU. Letting go of everything outside of yourself and clinging tightly to everything within.
You are the only one who stands in your way. And the only way to get out of your way is to go within... and heal your inner child. To understand why you hold yourself back, why you remain stuck in certain patterns, and to re-parent yourself and teach yourself where true safety, love, and acceptance are found. (HINT: it's within)
If you find that you often self-sabotage your health & fitness efforts, I can promise you that you are most likely sabotaging your life in other areas. You can't heal one without the other. It's just not how it works.
