We all strive to be better. We want thinner thighs, longer hair, clearer skin. We go to great lengths to achieve this vision of what is beautiful. And even if we succeed at one of those things, it’s never good enough. Someone else is always thinner, with long, flowing hair and glowing skin.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret. The secret to being skinny and beautiful. I could give you some bullshit line about how beauty comes from within, and we are all beautiful…in every single way (cue Christina Aguilera). Except it doesn’t matter. What you look like doesn’t matter. That’s the secret.
No one cares about the extra fat you’re carrying on your tummy. You’re the only one noticing, I promise. And no one is noticing that you don’t have a thigh gap. The little things you’re so concerned about are a waste of energy. And I’m willing to bet these things didn’t bother you before you compared yourself to someone else.
I want you to try something for me. Every time a negative thought about your body snakes its way into your brain, counter it with a positive thought. Just try it, and let me know how it goes.
