How are you showing love, compassion and kindness to yourself today? Coming from and staying in this state of BEING #love ❤️is easier said than done (as all things are), but when it comes to ourselves especially, it can feel like moving mountains ⛰
We find it easier to give and receive love from others but when compassion and kindness for ourselves comes up, we have a way easier time beating ourselves up and using words like, “could have, should have, need to, have to and can’t.” These words can sound benign but they undermine us at a deep level. And this is actually most often our default mode.
I hear from FitMamas daily, “I am my worst enemy.” Just because this is common, this does not mean it’s okay!
My daily mission is to be the opposite of that for myself first (pure unconditional love) and by being it, I’m giving you permission to be that too.
Your own biggest supporter, fan and advocate.
To just BE love.
I still have days and weeks where my deep-seated regret, anger and frustration towards me for the back injury that I gave to myself almost 3 years ago brings me to my knees in tears.
Even though I’ve been rehabbing, surrendering and healing, I still feel myself feeling sorry for myself and reacting in a way that doesn’t serve me or those around me.
I’ve been helping countless moms show love to themselves through embracing where they’re at, honouring their needs and rehabbing their core postpartum and though my back still hurts me physically, mentally and emotionally each day, helping others gives me strength.
I can honestly say it’s been the best life lesson I could have created and I am learning to embody my body in a whole new way.
The only words that seem to bring solace on the hard days is “I forgive you Jen.”
Because deep down I know I deserve it.
I know that in admitting this and forgiving myself a little more each day, I can keep supporting others and it will in turn support me in healing my pain.
Thank you for being on this journey with me! I am here to support you to forgive yourself daily for your imperfections. Knowing they are perfect.
Forgiveness has truly been my window to living pain free inside and out. I know it works and it’s the start of something much deeper.
What words to yourself move you into a state of grace, reverence and self love?
