One of the biggest, scariest and boldest things I have ever done in my life is finally accepting the body for what it is and how it looks like. I stood up and confronted myself with the pain and suffering I put my mind and my body through all these years!
I was only able to do that by using my art as a form of healing. I used it to put the thoughts in my head on paper, freeing myself from those ideas how I have to look like, how I have to behave or what I have to put into the world.
It ultimately freed me to unapologetically be who I am in my life, in my relationships, and in my work.
I did this by using art as my form of healing.
I did this by confronting my thoughts instead of letting them rule me.
I did this by throwing away my scale and finally listening to my body me instead of a number.
Today I am not struggling anymore. I haven't had a moment for a long time where I looked in the mirror and it wasn't what I wanted to see. I am good with who I am and what I look like. This freed up my mind for so many other things! Instead of worrying about the number on my scale I can think about ways to connect to my friends or grow my business. Just imagine how much time frees up if your mind isn't busy anymore with putting your body down!
To accept my body was one of the major reasons i could start my business to begin with. By freeing up my mind and my body from the burden of self destructive thoughts I finally had the capacity to jump into a new journey! I empowered myself and now I can empower others.
