Let’s Ditch the Doubt.
No matter what you got, own it.
I’m a firm believer of accepting who you are and being comfortable in your own skin, no matter what. Did you know that 97% of women (that’s almost all of us, y’all) have an “I hate my body” moment every single day. That is a whole lot of doubt about ourselves. I’m going to get really real with you all.
I’ve had these moments for as long as I can remember.
This little voice inside my head that sneaks up once in a while and reminds me of all my imperfections. I would say in these last 15 years of my life, I’ve found a way to silence this voice. It was quite simple, I just told it to shut up. My body has changed drastically within this time period too and if I could give anyone any advice in my lifetime is that the sooner that you come to accept not only your strong points and blessings but, your flaws–no one can use them against you. Not even yourself.
Just Own It.
Special K wants you to ditch your doubt and focus on what you can actually change versus getting hung up on the things you can’t. Myself personally, I know that I have a long journey ahead of me to get back to the best me but, I know that I have the choice and the power to do so. We all can do this by making healthier choices and by taking control of self-doubt, we can be stronger, more confident, healthier and ultimately empowered! A first step would be to put healthier things in our body! Special K makes delicious products that can help your journey.
The video says it all. Special K believes that 100% of women can change their perspective by being nicer to ourselves and by focusing on the things that we can change. We can look in the mirror, love the good and accept the not-so-good and fall in love with being imperfectly perfect.
Take Back Your Power.
Another thing that I always encourage people to do is find your tribe and to never listen to the naysayers. You’ll often find that they will try to pick on the most obvious things that may be “imperfect” about you but, when you love or accept every single part of you. Those naysayers are powerless.
So, go ahead.
What do you love about yourself?
Let me know, til then–cheers m’deres!
