HELLO! How’s it going?
I got the most amazing text message from my Mom the other day….
After reading this I smiled, cried a little (on the inside) and stopped to appreciate the fact that my dedication to living a healthy life, actually has the ability to inspire someone else.
This “healthy life” isn’t something I have always had and isn’t something that just “comes easy”. In reality, I work every single day to love myself. This may sound funny, but a HUGE part of living a healthy life (for me) has been remembering I am human, remembering that I am not perfect and learning to accept myself for who I am.
Part of this healthy living thing is squashing negative body talk consistently and eating well to fuel my active (AND potentially inactive) lifestyle. My path to this point in my life has been winding, bumpy, muddy, unpleasant, and sometimes scary. But, here I am.
I am humbled by the fact that my mother can find inspiration in me. And, I am so very grateful for her sending me this message. It is amazing how motivating it is to realize that what you do in your life, has the potential to inspire others.
I am INSPIRED by inspiring my mom and know that at this very moment, all the hard work is (and was) worth it every day. Every.single.day.
Who inspires you??
What inspires you??
How do you love yourself?? (by forgiving myself when I mess up and fueling myself with positivity, chocolate, and food 😉 )
