We always want to be somewhere we’re not and we always want to be someONE we’re not. I had a moment in Boulder this past weekend that hit me at my core. I had this realization that one of the most important feelings I want to have in my life is FREEDOM. I have been through many downs on my Body Journey and while I may not have a perfect anything I started asking myself what happiness means to me. And the answer was one word: freedom. As I create a new collection of armor and move forward with new openings at what I’m doing with my life, I have come full circle. Everything is about doing your best, working hard, moving towards goals, treating your body good, having positive thoughts, being of service to others, lifting heavy weights because they empower me, having the damn donut if i want it, ridding toxicity from my life, understanding that the only opinions of myself that truly matter are the ones I have of myself and mostly, living that which I declare through Fierce Forward.
I want to say that it is more important to realize that you already are beautiful. You, your soul…who you are and yes even your little buddha belly…if it is YOU, then that is beautiful. Be proud of yourself for being healthy, for nourishing your body and don’t forget that nourishing your mind and spirit are just as important!! The truth is, we are all beautiful. We can all move fiercely forward towards More whilst being happy with where we are right now. THAT is the path. That is freedom. So next time you feel insecure because of the stretch marks you have, because of the scar on your forehead, having a little buddha belly or bidonkadonk or are worried people may not like who you are…just say FUck it and OWN THAT SHIT. I am a size 10 and I weigh 183 and I no longer wish to hide any truths.
“The way I feel is the way I ride…there is a truth and its on our side” (from one of my favorite songs) I don’t care about holding back. I care about living my truth and that includes owning who I am and where I am at in THIS moment. I am healthy and these are heathy thoughts. You are beautiful and that is the truth. #bodylove #fiercebodylove
