“I was once afraid of people saying, ‘who does she think she is?’ Now I have the courage to stand and say ‘This is who I am.’” ~Oprah ✨
Im pretty sure we’ve ALL had moments where we made choices for ourselves based on what we believe other people will think 🤔 From what clothes we wear 👗 , to how or where we workout 🏋🏽♀️ , to deciding what to eat at a group dinner 🥘. It can be easy to fall victim to living your life based on how we wish to be perceived…fearful that we’ll be judged for simply doing what we really want to do. I have struggled with this and if you are facing this struggle, I want you to know that you are not alone, and it is possible to change your mindset and live your life for YOU💕
It’s taken me many years to learn to stand more confidently in my truth, And here are a few important lessons that I’ve learned along the way, that may help you stop🛑worrying & START LIVING FOR YOU: ✨
1️⃣ Most people really aren’t going to judge you 💝 More often than not, you will find that people actually respect you more for living in your truth and doing what’s best for you.
2️⃣ FACT: not everyone will like you🤨 Some people ARE going to judge you no matter what. And that’s ok 👌🏽. This was something that I really had to come to terms with not just in my personal life, but particularly, in my career as a fitness professional. As a teacher/trainer/coach my style is uniquely mine, because im uniquely me. 🙅🏽I literally cannot train like anyone else (nor do I try to) because I am confidently and unapologetically me
✨That said, I 💯 understand and acknowledge that am not everyone’s cup of tea ☕️. As its literally just impossible to be all things to all people 💕 So why not just be true to yourself instead? Once you accept the fact that some people are NEVER going to be into you — no matter how you live your life — you are suddenly freed from the burden of fear and you can begin to make CONFIDENT choices that are right for YOU😉
3️⃣ YOUR LIFE IS YOURS. So once you’ve freed yourself from the shackles of fear and concern about what others think YOU will actually start to enjoy living your life even more💝 #thisiswhoiam #knowyourworth #confidence
