To my fellow self-doubters and anyone who is having an “off” day today, did you know that your eye can distinguish around 10 million different colours? and that your nose can remember more than 50,000 different scents?!
Isn’t it about time you embrace who you are? Not when you’ve lost 10lbs, not when you get that promotion but right now?
Why do we have a habit of undermining our power? Giving all our attention on putting others on a pedal stall yet forgetting to embrace our own “amazingness”. Well I’ll tell you what, I’m about to give you 3 reasons why you should be embracing who you are right this second.
3 REASONS TO EMBRACE WHO YOU ARE “RIGHT NOW”
There is only one “YOU”
The most obvious yet most commonly forgotten reason why you should embrace who you are RIGHT NOW, is the fact that there is NO-ONE else in the entire universe who is like you. Not even twins are the same!
You are UNIQUE. How amazing is it that! We often fall into the trap of putting our uniqueness into a box which classifies us as “different” or “not normal“, but hang on a minute…
Deep down would you really want to be the same as someone else? The world wouldn’t be half as interesting if every human being was the same. Often our differences are what tend to be our advantages!
Do you seriously think it would be the world it is, you would have the friends you have, the partner you have, the job you have if you were the same as everyone else? Embrace what makes you special. You could lose everything that you have ever worked hard for, yet, you will never lose who you are and what you are made of.
“No one is you and that is your power.” – Dave Grohl
Who overcame all the challenges you’ve had to face in life so far? Yes you may be lucky to have supportive friends/family but when it comes down to it, the only person who has the power and the control of what you achieve and what you overcome is yourself.
You have survived every challenge, every bad day, every set back, every negative comment so far and in fact without the struggles in life you would not be the person you are today. You should be proud of yourself and be grateful for your challenges.
I realised that I can be quick to judge myself when I fail at something but I struggle to give myself credit when it is due, this is something that the majority of us do and how bonkers is that?!
Be proud of how far you have come, the obstacles you have beaten and the growth you have embraced. You are one hell of an amazing soul.
You only get one shot!
The ultimate reason why you should embrace who you are right now, is the fact you only get one shot.
Why waste this one lifetime on wishing you were someone else? Comparing your ass to Kim Kardashians? (which is FAKE btw), make the most of YOU and make the most of NOW! you will never get this moment, right here, back. Ever.
You have life and that alone should be enough to embrace the person you are and the person you chose to become. Take a look at yourself in the mirror today and state “I love you“, take one step closer to embracing who you are “right now“.
This is the shell that homes my soul.
The shell that holds my true self.
It will not be mine forever but I can choose to treat it with health.
We can abuse, distort and mistreat the shell but it will never give up on us.
I therefore decide to release self judgement because self love is truly enough.
Self love is not selfish as it’s needed for giving up resistance.
Cherish, love and own your shell as we only get one existence. ❤
