Here I am paddle boarding this past weekend. I just got home and posted this reflection on my Instagram. I hope it offers you inspiration, Gals! ☺️ ✨
"I wanted to tell you that you look so awesome in your bikini!" For me, who has been plagued with past body image demons, depression because of it and conquered that crippling negative voice, this kind of compliment still catches me off guard.
I've made it my work to help other women conquer the limiting beliefs that crush their confidence by connecting them to a new self-acceptance with their body, their image, and their personal power. The major reason I can do it and transform others with life-altering results is that I was there myself.
When I learned to explore every inch, every measurement and every proportion of my body and then how to dress it in flattering balance and perfectly aligned personal expression, the self-acceptance I created in myself brought me back from the brink.
Many see me a someone who could never have been anything but confident. We all have a story. I've come to the other side of that part of my story and turned it into service to others. For me, the ultimate win.
Even with all the awareness, sometimes it's hard to see how far I've come and I need a little reminder. That compliment - and my ability to say a simple, unqualified "thank you" - was a clear reminder of my journey and refreshed me to know that my own courage and confidence gives permission to others to discover their own.
Pretty awesome that was all locked up in one sweet little package of a compliment. ☺️ ✨
