Indulge in Decadence
So I had to look this word up- Decadence- actually means self- indulgence… so Yes! Indulge in self-indulgence.
I used to think- if I was hard on myself, hated and punished my body enough… THEN I would reach my goals, THEN I would have the exact body I wanted, THEN I could be happy. eeehhh…really? Questioning these types of thoughts is key. I really had to ask myself this important question– How can hating make you happy? Seriously. I realized, there’s no f***in’ way I could beat myself enough into happiness… and besides, honestly. Does it even make sense? No! It took a lot of curiousity, willingness, bravery, love, coaching, more coaching, self-coaching to get to that answer…. But the answer is definitely… Hell no!
It’s Valentines’ Day …I mean. I am induldging in some awesome, body love thoughts…I’m going to devour them, savor them, play with them, spend some quality time with them. It’s gonna be HOT! INDULGE!!
A Valentine to my body: (I know, it’s so cheesy…-zip it! You know you love cheese!)
