Getting up for work can become more challenging for me than just getting myself out of bed. It’s the struggle beyond the trip to the bathroom with one eye closed and my hair resembling a birds nest. I would say the hardest part of my mornings is getting dressed.

What’s incredible to me is how my mind works. I get up and choose clothes out of the same closet, that has the same clothes that I have hand picked, which of course are my size. Yet, once I try them on I instantly feel like they dont look good on me or that I look fat. As if i gained 20 pounds over night. Its crazy how I could all of a sudden be so turned off from the very clothes I once loved at the store I purchased them from.
Most nights I spend a few minutes preparing my clothes for the next day; in an attempt to make my mornings that much easier. I can’t tell you how many times that’s backfired on me. From the time I lay my head to rest to the time I wake up, my confidence slips away somewhere in my dreams. Then I wake up to a nightmare of issues.
I’m trying my best to work on this issue but I need some help. So far I’ve been going to the gym to help me loose some weight and trying to eat better to also help with the weight, and give me energy. I do feel good after a nice work out however I’ve realized that it probably wouldn’t matter how much I go to the gym, I have to learn to love me. How do you do that though? Do you just tell yourself your beautiful every morning, noon, night? Or do you chant things to yourself for a pick-me-up? I don’t get it, but I’d like to start learning. I truly believe it’s the most important part of this whole process.
I want to feel happy in my own skin and embrace my body. If you can relate to this post leave a comment about how you have overcome this or even if your still a work in progress! I would love to hear what you have to say. Who knows the lives you can change with the advice you post!
