In the Pursuit of Perfection

Confession: I was a having a TOUGH time last week. While I try to keep things positive, this was not one of my better days. I got stuck in my own head and wasted a good 30 minutes looking at fitness accounts on instagram. I wished my waist was smaller, I weighed 10lbs less, I had more curves, and continued to nitpick until I had enough.

It is so easy to preach self-love. It is so easy to insist upon loving our bodies and being enough as we are. It is so easy to say this and see this for others.

But, putting it into action, that’s the tricky part. I am not perfect, nor do I pretend to be. I have my own battles, and demons, and even my days of feeling like a blob but I’m working on it.

Just a reminder that I’m still on my journey too, and if you’re having a bad day, I’ve been there too. We all have. Take a minute to realize though that these are just your thoughts, on bad days, and they will happen, and that’s okay. What’s not okay is continuing to allow them or accept them as the truth. You ARE perfect right now, exactly as you are, and maybe you can’t see that yet, but chances are those around you already do.
