We all have a story. Mine..? I wasted too many years hating myself, not thinking I was good enough but not too sure how to make myself good enough. Owning a successful business, having 4 beautiful children, working out, helping out at school. Nothing helped. I was around 67kg in 2012, I truly thought that if I could get to 60kg then I would be happy. Well, guess what? I reached 60kg and I still wasn’t happy. I dropped a few more kilos and nope, still not happy. I was down, depressed and downright unhappy.
Then one day I literally had a lightbulb moment. I realised that I could not spend another day disliking me. I went on a self-love journey which was lovely in parts and bloody hard too. I dug deep into my soul and really put the work in on myself. Let me tell you, it was worth every difficult thought, every positive affirmation and every tear. Now I can honestly say that I am at a place of inner peace, self-acceptance and happiness. Life is still life but now I am in such a good place that it makes every day more pleasant, more enjoyable and the hard times easier to deal with.
