Self improvement is something I have battled with my whole life. I had a rough upbringing which didn’t help at all. There are many ways that I plan on working on my self improvement and in this blog I will share with you a couple of those!
First off, ( in no particular order) my weight and body image…
I have always dealt with issues when it comes to my self-esteem, self-confidence, and what my reflection looked like when I looked into the mirror, even before kids when I was skinny as hell. My weight has fluctuated over the years – at my smallest I was 85 pounds (pre-kids) and now I am at my heaviest at around 150.
I used to be upset at how I didn’t bounce back after having A but now that I am healthier I am glad that I weight more. Now, with that being said… I am not happy at my current weight but I do plan on creating a system for me that will help get back to where I love the body that I am in.
People always tell me ” You should be in love with your mom bod. You created beautiful babies with it!” You’re right, I did. I still have the right to not be happy, though, and no one can take that away from me. I love my children dearly and I am so incredibly happy that I was able to carry and create them! That doesn’t mean that I have to love and embrace my mom bod, though.
Secondly, I need to build myself up more! I need to stop second guessing myself and just go with what I feel is right. At any given time, on any day, you can find me second guessing a decision that I just made – with no regard to what it may be about.
I need to rely on my gut because I hold more knowledge than I’m allowing myself to believe. This became obvious these past two weeks dealing with someone very close to my family needing hospice care. Y’all know this is what I’m going to school for so I have the basic knowledge and what I’ve learned in my internship but through this experience I’ve found out just HOW MUCH I actually do know.
Last, but definitely not least, I need to work on opening up and allowing my thoughts to be expressed. I’m pretty open when it comes to certain things but I still remain tight lipped when it comes to other topics.
Opening up will allow me even more personal growth. I’m hoping that my plans going forward with this blog I will be able to conquer this!
