The other day, I took a bit of a leap, it actually just happened, not planned in any way, just happened, I talked and the words flowed, perfectly honestly!
Might be too much for some, it felt completely right for me.
What I found interesting was when I woke up this morning, I felt even more clear, I felt inspired to get up and get going. I am loving my earlier mornings and although not perfect, I am enjoying my morning routine and know it will continue to evolve into so much more with each day.
Writing the blog was not hard at all. Shooting the video, my words flowed, way more than what I had originally thought they would. If you’ve got 30 minutes you can get a really good feel for my story and what fueled my transformation to take me from feeling so much resentment towards my health and body to truly LOVING my body and appreciating, feeling gratitude for all it has and continues to do for me!
Push the fear aside. Writing the blog was easy. Posting on social media, made my stomach do flip flops. WHY!? Why does social do this!? The first thing that jumps to my mind is judgment and negativity. Even though its MY story. I PUSHED THAT ASIDE HARD! I hit the share button – NOT because I feel like what I did/do is what everyone should – no I shared because if more people had shared their story back in 2004/5 when I was truly struggling, when PCOS was this unknown taboo “women’s illness” I perhaps wouldn’t have felt so alone, isolated and broken.
The world needs more of us to share our truths, to share our story, and all the real raw parts and spread more love and positivity throughout the world. Regardless what you THINK someone else may say or think.
Another dear friend reached out earlier this week, one who we share a similar life experience. In the moment it shook me. Brought a lot of mixed feelings back to the surface. I allowed myself time to FEEL these feelings, to process them – for both of us. To be ok with a slight pull back, before stepping back into the strength and determination that is within me, and her.
Life is a journey, of loving yourself and living your best life – whatever that may be in that moment. Sometimes it is snuggled on the couch in a blanket, with a book, journal or watching netflix snacking on good food. Its also whatever fuels your passions and lights your heart up. Its the highs, lows and all the in between. Relationships, romantic, friendship, family. ❤
