In 2017 I was going through a divorce and transitioning into becoming a single parent. Things were less than ideal in my world, and it’s safe to say that my self-worth meter was pretty low. We all trek through life with our “titles” (you know what I’m talking about here, moms!) Those labels tacked onto us from the outside world that -- if we let them -- begin to determine our inside worth.
“Who am I, if not a wife?”
“Who am I outside of being a mom to my smart, courageous daughter?”
“Who am I when I’m not at the gym?”
A funny thing happened when I got really clear on who I was outside of those unhelpful titles; a whole lot of kindness and love began to pour in.. from me! I began approaching life with patience for myself in everything I was going through.
By making it a priority to work on myself, I began modelling the importance of a healthy lifestyle to my daughter. Now, while I’m getting my squats in at home, she’s right there beside me grooving along! #girlpower
Fueling my body with nourishing food became intuitive. My stamina during workouts increased because it didn’t feel like a chore. I no longer needed to deplete my energy by working on my own inner baggage, so I was able to show up and be a pillar of support for my amazing girlfriends.
So ladies, ask yourselves today: what’s holding you back?
