Say YES in 2017
At the beginning of a new year, we usually focus what we are giving up – sugar, alcohol, takeaways, bad habits
However, what happens if you focus on what you really want instead of what you dont want?…staying in the positive as opposed to negative
So I ask you, in 2017 what are you saying YES to?
It could be more cash, more success, more meaningful relationships, more FUN, more exercises more healthiness
When you focus on on what you DO want rather than what you DONT want….your thought processes change and its like you are telling the universe…IM READY!!!
Thoughts become things (well Buddha said anyways)…so whatever you think of thats what you attract, so think more of what YOU DO want…and that’s what you’ll attract, I dare you to give it a go 😉
The thing is, when it comes to our dreams we often have a list of no-nos, like if we are wanting to lose weight we say “no weight gain, no laziness” or when we want to find a relationship we say “no losers, no cheaters” but we often don’t think of our yes-yess…. so this means that are attention and focus is more on what we don’t want than what we do want.
So What are YOU saying YES to this year???
Let me know, lets share ur positivities and make 2017 the year we LOVE OUR BODIES and give them what they deserve
YOU ARE WORTH IT (Whether you lose L’Oréal or not haha)
I believe in YOU
Do you Love YOU? I mean deep down really LOVE YOU….and not in a conceted way or a selfie pout kinda way….I mean Self Love.
This is something I have recently started getting into and reading lots of books by Hay House, Mel Wells and looking into lots of research and also through my recent love of meditation from “calm”
Now when I say self love….it may sound weird and some people actually think it’s wrong to love yourself and that’s fine, I mean we are al different after all. But how can you love anyone else or expect anyone to love you when you one love yourself.
YOU are an amazing human being, with so much potential and so much to give….you have gotten where u r now with all of life’s ups and downs and yet here you are living and smiling.
If you were to speak to your best friend the way you sometimes speak to yourself…..how do you think they would feel? Speak to yourself the way you do your best friend whom you love, be your own best friend and show yourself some LOVE.
LOVE YOUR BODY – yes you can – regardless of lumps, bumps, curves – who cares? It’s YOUR body – you live in it and no1 else does…so learn to love it and suck it up buttercup, you have an amazing shell of a body to live in…start showing it some love,instead of finding the flaws and criticising yourself….really look at yourself and smile and see beyond it all. Love your body enough to NOT restrict food and Love your body enough to NOT see exercise as a chore.
LOVE YOU – think of all the people who love you – they do for a reason right? because you are worth it (flick ur hair in the style of L’Oreal if you must) but they love you because they see something special in YOU…..so start looking deeper and seeing that same something special.
LOVE YOUR FOOD – probably one of the biggest relationships we all have is with food…am I right? Love/Hate and all that jazz. We’ve all been “on a diet” haven’t we, we’ve all restricted ourselves and stopped ourselves from eating something we love because of the calories (blahh blahh) – and yes of course it’s good to eat healthy and make the right choices…BUT it is also OK to have a little bit of what YOU LOVE every so often…and when you do DONT beat yourself up about it….so what?? Create a great relationship with food and you will never have to diet again.
TELL YOURSELF “I LOVE YOU” EVERYDAY – I started a book called “mirror work” and it’s 21 days program and it gives you tasks to do – which means talking to yourself into the Miri with positive affirmations, now I don’t mean full on convos and looking like a nutter…but it’s allowing yourself to look yourself in the eye everymorning (or whenever u pass a mirror) and saying out loud/in your head – that I LOVE YOU or some other positive affirmation, rather than a negative comment about yourself…yes at first it seems weird and a little scary but trust me after a few days it becomes norm and also…you start believing and after all that’s all that matters.
ITS OK TO LOVE YOURSELF
Show yourself some LOVE and reach deep inside your heart and soul and start to realise how amazing you are and how much you deserve to be LOVED.
Now go and tell yourself that I LOVE YOU!!!!
Bikini Fit – Be YOU
Ok so the sun is shining and it gets you thinking about Summer Holidays and maybe having to reveal a little bit more skin……but the question is are you comfortable in your own skin??
OK so I can pretty much guarantee 90% of the replies to that above question will be NO and really its sad to see…because at the end of the day your amazing just the way you are.
Being Bikini Fit should mean something different to everyone, it should mean feeling comfortable within your own skin to be able to get out on that beach, wear that dress and flaunt (in a good way) what you got. It should mean you feel good and healthy from the inside out and that no matter what other people think/say – as long as you feel good who cares?? Being Healthy and Happy far outweighs being sick and unhappy just to fit into a certain size bikini or dress…surely YES??
Unfortunately in modern society “Bikini Fit/Ready” means something completely different, whether we blame magazines, social media, celeb instagrams…whatever..the list goes on….it doesn’t mean whats right for YOU….it seems to mean whats right for society and whats right for peers and what fits/conforms with what the media say is right….OK since when should we let other people dictate our lives?? Sounds harsh but thats exactly whats happening…..
OK Let me break it down…you see in a Mag/Instagram/Social Media (whatever) an article or a picture stating this is how you should be/look or “omg look at this millionaire celeb an her body” and subconsciously without u even knowing, those words and them images are put into your mind and suddenly this becomes what YOU want/need to be and becomes YOUR goal….now don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with using this as inspiration….but 9 times out of 10 it goes become inspiration, it moves away from the point and becomes an obsession (and not a healthy one) – an obsession with thinking this is how YOU need to look or be.
At the end of the day NEVER try and be anyone else….if you wanna change try and be a better version of YOU and not a copy of someone else.
Bikini Fit/Ready to you should be something personal to you and what you want to do…dont think you need to get into that size 8 bikini because some celeb on the front of a mag is….dont go to crazy lengths/stress yourself out..because this is a vicious circle and if you don’t achieve society ides of “Bikini Fit” then you will beat yourself up/get sad and then it starts again.
Do what you need to do to be comfortable, happy and healthy from the inside out….because after all thats where health and happiness start!! YOU cant be happy and healthy on the outside if the inside is falling apart (and by inside I include ur mind also)
Wanna get “bikini fit” then start from within:
Write YOUR Goals down
Seek professional help from someone who understands what YOU want (if u need too)
STOP comparing yourself to others
Find whats right for YOU
Stop letting others judge YOU (after all as Eleanor Roosevelt said “no-one can make you feel inferior without your consent”
Just because society says something doesn’t mean you have to conform
Be Positive and above all LOVE YOURSELF
WE ALL have had body hang ups at one point in our lives, I don’t care how perfect you are (or how perfect you think you are)….we’ve all been there, whether it be wobbly bits or excess skin or lumps and bumps….every single person at one point in their lives will have some (even if its small and lasts 30 seconds) body hang ups…..and as much as thats a sad thing for me to right, we are only human after all. Its our different shapes, sizes and body make ups that make us who we are (now I am NOT getting into overweight blah blahh…its not the point of this article, its more about how we see ourselves).
Its so easy to be negative about our body’s, always striving for perfection and wondering why you cant look like xxx or why certain clothes just don’t do it for you.
We need to get away from this…because believe it not (and you better) YOU are amazing, beautiful and unique just the way you are (inside and out – well unless you are a vile human being, but then again you wouldn’t be reading this if you were so cancel that 1)
Embrace every single inch of yourself, LOVE what you’ve got and what you are…because there is no-one quiet like you in the world and for that you should be happy!! Be more positive about your body..love it and work with it and oh by the way F**K what anyone else says….who are they to have an opinion??? NO NO NO!!!!
Look after your body, after all its the only place you have to live in.
The more positive you are about your body image – the more positive and uplifted you will feel and the more you will begin to love yourself from the inside out!!
WOW ok…I think I covered everything!!
Remember find what works for YOU in every part of your life, don’t let others bring your down or bring negativity into your life.
Stay positive and learn to LOVE YOURSELF….because unless you do, you can never expect anyone else to.
No go grab your fav Bikini and feel confident!!! (please put sun cream on and stay hydrated haha – heres Mummy Jen coming out)
