Recently someone asked me how I am able to consistently show up and put myself out there - how do I feel confident all the time...
They were saying that they don't feel comfortable on camera and when they see images of themself, it is incongruent with how they feel about themself.
In other words, they struggle with body dysmorphia.
And... I think to an extent, we all do and I'm not always confident.
I've had 2 big babies, survived a pandemic (just like everyone else), and have extra bits and pieces that I would prefer not to show to the world.
But... my mission is bigger than my insecurities.
I know that there are people out there that need to see 'normal' bodies like mine, and bodies like yours, and bodies like all of us.
So - why do I keep putting myself out there?
So that maybe one of you might feel a bit more comfortable to step into the gym someday.
So that maybe one of you might feel less self-conscious when you pull on your leggings and they feel a bit tighter
And, so that my children can see someone continuously show up with all the imperfections.
I hope this resonated with one of you. If it did... please let me know in the comments so that I can keep showing up for you. ❤️
Lots of love,
