Can I be real with you for a second?.. Some days I don't love myself. I try, but I don't.
I see a nose too big, skin not clear enough, a wardrobe full of nothing to wear, boobs too small, arms too fat, too much muffin above my jeans and not enough money in the bank. Those days, I fall down the rabbit hole of the socials, I listened to my inner critic or maybe I simply didn’t get enough sleep that night.
Those are the days I have to show up for myself the most, and this is how I do it:
I stop myself in my tracks. I will either sit in medi (if I can) or I will breathe deeply and exhale as much of the BS as I can.
I tune in and ask myself "what is it that I am feeling?" so often we think something is the problem and it turns out to be a whole other story.. usually we are simply hurt.
I show up for what's coming up. I sit with that part of me, allowing it to be heard. Pushing it away means it will come back later, but hearing it out gives these feelings their much needed air time and we both get to move on.
