6 months ago ️ TODAY. Spot the difference! Bet you can’t spot the biggest one....
The picture on the left was my VERY FIRST “before” picture I took six months ago. Looking at that picture honestly makes me a little emotional.
For those of you who have met me at least once before, you probably know that I am an energetic social-butterfly that would radiate sunshine if I could! (Shoutout to my other Enneagram Type 7’s!) 🦋️
However, what you might not know is that I have struggled with anxiety and insecurity ever since I was little. And I struggled HARD. I struggled with comparing myself to others and feeling like I wasn’t good enough, just to scratch the surface.
The nice words and occasional encouragements from others didn’t stop the ugly thoughts in my head. If you have struggled with anxiety, you know exactly what I mean.
By the healing and grace from God, my mental health had just started to get better by the time I entered college. But there I was, 2 months into my last year before graduation, taking this picture, and those thoughts started creeping back into my head.
I get emotional looking at the picture on the right too, because I seriously had NO idea how much this fitness program was going to CHANGE MY LIFE and bring me to where I am now! I am now so proud of myself ... EVERY FREAKING DAY! I used to end each day anxiously obsessing over all the ways I screwed up that day. I now end my day CONFIDENT and AMAZED at myself!
When I started to pour into my physical health, I unknowingly started pouring into my mental health, and THAT’S the transformation that I would have given anything for!!!
If you struggle or have struggled with anxiety, insecurity, or any other mental illness, this is for you:
You are not alone. My battles may look different than yours, but I’m still here for you. I’d be lying if I said I was offering you the end-all cure. But I have definitely walked out of the darkest seasons and into a happier, brighter, and more confident one, and I’m inviting you to join me in it!!
