Earlier today, someone asked me what I’m most proud of in my life: personal or professional, and I didn’t hesitate to say, “I’m so proud of this life I’m living and my relationships with the people in it.”
I reflected back to the beginning of my journey, when I was so unhappy with my weight and my body and not living the life I wanted, and the unhappy, unkind, and frankly b!tchy person it made me. I rejected a lot of people and pushed away a lot of people so they couldn’t reject me first, I talked about people and not things or ideas, and I accepted treatment that was less than I deserved because I thought it was all I deserved at that weight.
I often share my gratitude for my family, my partner, and my friends, and the truth is: all of those relationships got better when I did, and accepting myself, cellulite and all, opened me up to new relationships and opportunities I didn’t even know where possibilities for me.
It sounds like it was as easy as flipping a light switch when in reality, it was the hardest and most vulnerable thing I’ve ever done. And it’s made all the difference. ️ Thanks to @themuchomama for this quote - it’s perfect!
