I was kind of stumped at what I was going to write about today. I sat at the computer yesterday for something, but I was blocked. Before going to bed, I found this video and it left me speechless.
We must all remember that we are enough. There is no mold at to who we should be and who we are should just be enough.
I remember thinking if I lost weight then I’ll fit in to the “normal” world. I wouldn’t have the eyes starring at me, taking pity on me or giving me the “looks.” But you know what, I lost weight and thought I was going to “fit” in and I still feel like I’m an outsider looking in now. There are some moments that I worry more now about the way I look than I ever did in 30 years of life.
At the end of the day, I must realize that I am enough. You are enough.
Be proud of the person you are. Live your life to the fullest. Don’t let someone else dictate who you think you should be within reason. It’s much easier to just be yourself.
This should not be a reason to accept being unhealthy so please don’t take it that way. A healthy life and perspective on life is really what this is all about. If you’re taking care of yourself, that is all that matters.
There is no need to compare yourself to anyone else. It’s about being confident in your abilities and being strong to stand as an individual.
I may not be there 100% but I have learned to accept me for the person I am…and now what I think I should be or look. I struggled a lot last summer because my body type changed and I thought it was a horrible thing. But now I realize, my body type is what it is and my body represents my strength.
Embrace who you are. Be who you want to be. You are enough.
