Could you be my next success story?
I want to tell you about a client of mine. She’s a lovely lady that’s 83 years young. She raised a number of beautiful, successful children, has run many successful businesses, and has fantastic taste and a flair for philanthropy. She’s a woman ahead of her time. She taught me the difference between an ipod and an MP3 player. I’m not kidding. She’s smart, beautiful and wise.
And she hates her belly.
She bemoans the flaps under her arms.
She’s sick to death of her thighs.
And that makes me want to cry. This is what we all have to look forward to ladies. If you’ve been thinking that you’d miraculously stop obsessing over the shape and size of your body when you turned 40, or 50, or 80, think again!
I for one have had enough. Enough of society telling me I need to look a certain way to be accepted, or to even accept myself. I’ve had enough of airbrushing, and size 6 actresses playing “fat girls”. I’ve had it with out-of-shape, unattractive TV husbands (even the CARTOONS) having beautiful, thin wives just because it’s more pleasing to people. Personally, I’ve had enough of lamenting over the size of my thighs and constantly comparing myself to other women. I’ve had enough of thinking my life would be better if only I fit into a size 2. More than anything, I’ve had enough of hearing wonderful, intelligent, talented and beautiful women spend so much time and energy on getting rid of their cellulite.
I mean, really? We’re spending billions of dollars on a weight-loss industry that DOOMS us to failure! In fact, much of it is DESIGNED to fail! Let’s face it ladies, they’re counting on us being REPEAT customers! Think about the last year. How many diet books did you buy? How much of your time was spent thinking about, preparing for or following a diet? How much money did you spend on fitness videos, equipment or gym memberships you barely used? How about diet pills? Did you go out and get some raspberry ketones when Dr. OZ talked about them? Now think about the past five years. Depressed yet?
I think it’s time to step off this wheel of pain and torment, don’t you?
I think it’s time to stop wasting time on changing our bodies for the sake of fitting in or being accepted. I think it’s time to stop comparing ourselves to other women and start appreciating all the varying types of body shapes. I think it’s time to start focusing on moving and eating for health, energy, happiness and longevity instead of the number on the scale. I think it’s time we stopped giving a rip what everybody else thinks about our bodies, good, bad or otherwise and just started loving ourselves.
I think it’s time we started taking care of ourselves because it’s important to US.
And I believe that’s how we manifest TRUE beauty. I believe that when our outer bodies become a reflection of internal love and acceptance we radiate and vibrate at a different frequency. That frequency is light, its love, its confidence and security. And it draws people to us like moths to a flame. Some would call it charm or charisma; I call it connection to who you really are.
When you come to a place of loving and accepting yourself so completely that you no longer need the acceptance or approval of others, you are truly free. I know it sounds backwards, but you have to release your need to be accepted in order to be completely accepted.
That’s why I do what I do. I want you to be free. Free from the expectations of others. Free from negative self-talk and low self-esteem. Free from needing approval. Free to be the beautiful being you already are!
