Before I started my journey I was not as confident or happy. I walked around with resting bitch face way to often. Not cool! Not cool at all! I hated the way I felt and knew I wanted to change that. So slowly I changed the things I didn’t like about myself. My body and my attitude! I am so much happier with my life smiling. In the beginning I would smile or say hello to people and some would look at me like I was crazy, others I think thought wanted more than just a friendly smile back and some would cautiously smile back. I have to admit it was a conscious effort on my part to keep smiling and being friendly. Now its just natural.
We should empower one another! We are so judgemental of ourselves and others. I work hard to not be so hard on myself and not to judge others. I decided just from my experiences at the gym that woman should really be bringing one another up and not tearing each other down. I work so very hard on my journey and I see so many others at the gym working hard. Why not tell them I notice how hard they are working and see the changes in their body! It always feels great to get a compliment so why would I give them as well! Lets empower one another to continue on our journeys. You never know what others are going through in their personal lives and just a simple smile or compliment could really change their day. It can be received to push a little harder too. Maybe one more rep then you thought you had in you. Maybe a little longer on the machine your working on. Running a little faster or longer. Smile! Your even more beautiful when you smile:)
Happy 4th of July!
