Get Your Glow Challenge:  Thoughts after Week 1

“When I let go of who I am I become what I might be” – Lao Tzu (Affirmation from program)

I am letting go of my need to be perfect in all things. I am letting go of the negative self-talk that floods my mind when something doesn’t turn out just right. I am letting go of thinking too hard about things and taking life in its entirety too seriously. I am letting go of allowing fear to make my life decisions for me. I am letting go of doubt and I am letting go of not listening to my beautiful heart and wise intuition.

When I hold on to all of these negative things and let them embody me, I am not allowing my true authentic self to surface. I am suppressing her. If I were able to “let go of who I am”, I think I could blossom and “become what I might be”. I have always felt that I have something inside of me that screams to get out at times. Something that is more than I currently am, something that is brilliant. This may seem arrogant to some but to me I feel like I have been holding apart of myself back. A part that wants to shine, and I think it’s because of fear and doubt.

There are so many lessons and tools that I’ve left behind during the many transitions I’ve gone through over the last couple years. That’s our problem; we let the trials and tribulations of life get in the way of not just our health but of living. We don’t mean to, it just happens. I do know that these setbacks are ok and that a lifestyle change is an ongoing rollercoaster. When you hit one of the lows you just gotta pick yourself back up and remind yourself of how far you’ve come and keep going.
