God, the universe, whatever you believe in…they put you on this earth for a higher purpose than to be attractive. The purpose of your life can’t just be to be beautiful and have people like you.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, here in the US, and it’s got me thinkin’ about just how thankful I am to be alive.
So what is the purpose of YOUR life going to be? The fun part is you get to choose for yourself. I want the purpose of my life to be helping women accept and celebrate who they are, discover their value, and feel free to enjoy themselves.
Your purpose is going to be different, but it’s just as important as mine. Maybe you want to write a book about how to get out of an unhealthy relationship. Your purpose could be to teach single moms how to cook great meals for their kids and still have time for themselves at night.
Whatever your purpose, on this episode of The Body Confidence Podcast I’m hoping you’ll abandon the idea that chasing perfection will be your life’s work.
Whether your body was a size 0 or 14, when it’s dead it’s dead. So why’re you spending your time obsessing over it? Yes, it’s important to be healthy…but why? Because when you’re healthy you can live a longer, more fulfilling life.
If you’re constantly criticizing your body, you’re not living a fulfilled life to begin with, so you’re missing the point. Always think ahead when you’re feeling down about yourself. “will this matter in 5 years?” “will this matter when I’m gone?”
You’re going to be remembered one way or another, what you do today will influence that memory. Are you going to be the woman who enjoyed her life experiences or a woman who ruined them by criticizing everything and dwelling in self criticism?
Too harsh? I want you to realize this stuff matters and how you live each day is how you live your life. So if you don’t want your life to be filled with dieting, stress, and wishing your body looked different, you gotta start today. It’s as simple as that.
