End the Barrage of Insults and Learn to Accept and Love the Way You Look

Have you ever stood with a pile of discarded clothes at your feet because NOTHING was right?!

New Year’s Eve 2014 I wanted to look good (aka I wanted to feel good going to a party).

When you don’t look good, you don’t feel good. Sound familiar?

I knew other women would be dressed up, I wanted to too. But, I didn’t have anything that fit right, looked dressy enough, or didn’t make me feel like a sack of potatoes.

The more I tried on, the more desperate & anxious I got.

Looking in the mirror, I noticed every wrinkle, roll, flappy arm, soft spot, freckle, mole, gray hair, & dimple (not the cute kind!).

As each attempt at an outfit emphasized parts of my body that I wanted to hide or was just a damn dud, I was near tears & snappy with my husband when he pointed out how late it was getting.

All I could see in the mirror was a body I hated & that spiraled into a tirade of how I’m lazy & inadequate or how I'd let myself go! 🙄

I was desperately trying to find some confidence in the right outfit & in my reflection because I didn’t have it any other way.

How do you think my NYE went???

I’m betting you know some version of this ^^.

Thankfully things are very different for me today.

When I look in the mirror now, I smile. It surprises me too. But, I’ve developed a love for this woman who fought so hard to like herself.

I want that for you too.

I want to help you end the barrage of insults when you look at yourself.

To feel some affection -even a little- for the woman staring back at you who has been through so much and doesn’t deserve the insults that you hurl at her day in and day out.

You wouldn’t say those things to anyone else and you wouldn’t put up with someone saying them to you.

To feel differently, you have to think differently.

What you say TO YOURSELF matters.

Shifting to something even a smidge kinder can make a HUGE difference.

And if you’re not sure how to do that, it’s ok.

I’ve got you.

Believe me, I know what it’s like to be buried under fear & change is possible - I’ve worked on it for myself and with my clients.
