“Love lives here…”
Updated: Oct 31, 2021
My story has taken me into the crevices of the beliefs I have carried of myself and admittedly of what I believed others had of me. And these insights took place with my coach, my therapist, during those long seafront walks I love so much and sometimes in my skanky pjs on the couch, gazing out the window in dead silence, while the hamster was furiously running on her treadmill!
One of my great painful revelations is that I had divorced my body, denounced her, and relegated her to the status of person no gratis. What everyone else saw however, was her showing up, dressed up, confident and ready to face the world!
I can’t tell you when it happened, but what I can tell you for sure is that I had become the master of ignoring her and protecting her all at the same time! It took quite a while to process, understand, find a place of acceptance, acknowledgement for what she is able/enables me to achieve every single day. To build a bridge, a relationship of trust and above all to find a place of wholehearted love.
Fast forward, here I am. I am happy. I am fit. I am strong. And yes, I have lost a lot of weight, which I know could never have happened for me without first working on myself from the inside !
The day I could see double digits on the scale was utter disbelief, celebration but disbelief, and since so many more learnings have taken place.
I feel like I have only just started and what better time than the present.
I welcome the opportunity to hear your stories and to share a few of mine which has brought me to this place. Love lives here…
