Bodies, like life, are ever changing. & to someone who likes control,
To someone who gravitates toward a plan,
To someone who always wants to know what to expect or what’s coming next- (Psst- talking about me 🙋🏼♀️)
That change can be terrifying, anxiety provoking, and sometimes even feel defeating. ✨
Sometimes I am more hungry than other times and want/need to eat more food. & that’s ok.
Sometimes I’m less hungry. & that’s ok too.
Sometimes I have lots of energy and motivation to dance and workout. 👌🏻 Sometimes I feel like being cozy and still. 👌🏻 Sometimes I want to be active but need to instead rest my body. 👌🏻 Sometimes, occasionally, only if, and maybe when, this is the realistic space in which I exist. ✨
Over the holidays I gained some weight & had a hard time with it. 🤷🏼♀️ clothes not fitting right, etc. I lost some of the weight & then gained it back again. ✨ ➡️& Then Covid happened. ⬅️
Suddenly everything that once seemed important faded away.
I didn’t shame myself for eating pasta🍝
I was happy I had food at all
Grateful I was able to find a box on the empty shelves at the grocery store.
My mind wasn’t racing listing all the things I’d eaten that day because I was too busy thinking about whether or not my partner and I would be able to pay rent. 🏡
Too busy being worried about my family
Too busy thinking about the state of our world 🌎🦠 😷🌍
In the midst of a pandemic, I felt my mind quieting in a way it hasn’t in quite sometime.
There’s an important lesson in here for me-
Valuing my health,
Keeping perspective on whats important,
And giving myself a damn break,
Will go a long long way. ❤️
Here I am dancing it out, because I feel like it 🙃🙃🙃
