worthy

(Y/N): Hey, Thor, here’s your hammer. You left it on my book!

Thor:

(Y/N): I’m not mad or anything! Just watch where you put it next time!

Thor:

(Y/N): Hello? Thor?

Loki: Thor, have you seen Lady (Y/N)-

Loki:

Thor:

(Y/N): Loki?

Loki:

(Y/N): Oh no, he’s broken, too!

Steve: There you are- what’s going on here?

Thor: SHE IS WORTHY!

(Y/N): What does- whoa! Put me down, Thor!

Thor: WORTHY! WORTHY! WORTHY!

Loki: WORTHY! WORTHY! WORTHY!

Steve: WORTHY! WORTHY! WORTHY!

Today I will lay
on the floor with my arms out.
Palms spread.
Toes pointed.
Somewhere along the way
I forgot how to take up space,
but I am slowly stretching out again. 
I am allowed to exist
at my fullest,
and if I do not fit in you,
I will find somewhere I do.

Have you ever stopped to think about why you really want to lose weight?

And I’m not talking about the obvious reasons of,
“I want to feel better” or “I want to look good”.

Every time you come up with a reason, ask yourself why.

Eventually you’ll come down to the REAL reason of why you want to lose weight.

I’ve mentioned it in previous posts about how weight is just a symptom of a deeper pain.

Here’s my weight cycle:

Feeling unworthy of love and acceptance.

Then going on a diet to achieve a certain body that I thought would get people to love and accept me.

I would fail at that and feel worse.

Even more unworthy than when I started.

So what would I do?

Try again.

Go on a diet, fail, feel like shit, hate myself and repeat.

If this you, it’s time to take a different approach. Contact me me and let’s work to find the root issue of your weight struggle and unhappiness.

Something you all should know:

Glowing up isn’t about hating yourself and wanting to change. It’s about loving yourself enough to want to improve yourself. It’s about giving yourself the things you deserve and it’s about feeling that you’re worthy. So, here’s a mini challenge for you all: Whenever you decide to do something like change your diet, drink more water or develop your skin routine, don’t do it because you feel ugly or overweight. Instead, look at what doing those things will do for you. Drinking water will clear your skin up, give you more energy and improve your gut health, eating healthy will give you more energy mentally and physically etc. Don’t focus on the negatives, focus on the positives and forgive yourself because you won’t always make the healthy choices and you don’t need to be hard on yourself for that. We’re all works in progress. You all deserve the best in life.

There is a time and a season for everything. Life is all about change.

One of the most valuable lessons I have learned through out my journey is that our bodies go through seasons.

Seasons of growth
Seasons of resiliency
Seasons of strength
Seasons of weakness
Seasons of pain

Our bodies endure it all.

I’ve also learned all seasons are valuable in their own way.
That one is not superior to the other.

Just the way that life changes day after day, so do our physical, mental & emotional states.

And the best thing I could tell you & myself is to embrace these seasons of change with love & compassion.

You are doing the best that you can at any given moment. Give yourself credit for that.

You must learn her.

You must know the reason why she is silent. You must trace her weakest spots. You must write to her. You must remind her that you are there. You must know how long it takes for her to give up. You must be there to hold her when she is about to.

You must love her because many have tried and failed. And she wants to know that she is worthy to be loved, that she is worthy to be kept.

And, this is how you keep her.
