“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
By: Eleanor Roosevelt
It’s easy to let words get to us, to let them eat away at us, to let them bring us down & make us question our ultimate purpose.
But in the grand scheme of things, when you think about it, we always have a choice: Words don’t have to get to us if we don’t want them to.
I was recently shamed by a follower for being on a health journey due to my past with anorexia. Why take health advice from someone who was once too weak to make her way up a flight of stairs, right?
I let those words get to me so bad that it got to a point where I asked myself if they were actually true.
But then I snapped out of it. I realized those words only meant something if I gave them meaning.
Why take health advice from someone who was so ill she almost lost her life? BECAUSE FINDING PASSION IN HEALTH, NUTRITION & FITNESS is the reason I’m alive today. Health, nutrition & fitness GAVE ME MY LIFE BACK.
I chose recovery but, with it, I also chose to change my lifestyle, to work to heal my relationship with food, to nourish my body & most importantly, to educate myself about what I was putting into it. I ACTIVELY chose those things & because I did, I learned more about my body this year than I did in my entire life.
I didn’t just learn through research, I LEARNED THROUGH EXPERIENCE.
My goal in putting myself out on social media is to use my experience to help you & show you the value in there being no better feeling in the world than knowing you are loving, nourishing & taking care of your body & yourself.
I’m not a doctor or a certified dietitian, but what I am is a girl who lived through one of the most difficult experiences of her life & made it out alive after I chose to FIGHT on my own to regain my health & rebuild my body & strength.
In hindsight, I should’ve never let those words get to me the way they did because I know that I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for my health journey & to me, that means a lot more.
To all my loyal supporters, I love you from the bottom of my heart & I can’t thank you enough for your motivation & trust. You guys give me life!
TODAY (& EVERYDAY’S) TIP is to know your worth & to think twice before letting anyone make you question it.
