Do you find yourself wanting to be Jennifer Aniston, Kim Kardashian, enter any celebrity’s name? Do you find yourself DVRing a reality show based on someone else’s life? If you answered yes to either of these questions I challenge you to ask yourself “Why?”
Why would you want to be someone else? Why not just change who you are by changing your life? Watching someone else live their life; whether it is scripted on some reality show or in some celebrity magazine, you are just seeing what sells. You are not experiencing any of the challenges they may be going through. I can tell you this their obstacles are as real for them as yours are for you.
I would like to offer to you that you work on how you feel about yourself and be the person that you can look at and say, “I want to be like me”. Be the kind of person that creates the life you want. Be proactive in creating your life, taking massive action. If you aren’t living the life you want to live the responsibility only lays with you.
I look back on my life and I accept everything that has happened in it. My life was pretty ordinary. My family was poor and lived under the poverty line. My mom took me to second had stores to get clothing for school. I wore shoes with holes in them and hand me down clothes from my sister. As a house hold there were times our utilities were shut off due to nonpayment. We were a family that never experienced vacations and get to go places. But my parents always woke up each day, went to work and worked hard. I received my work ethic from my parents. I don’t look back on my life and say I wish…. I used to. But you know what that got me? Nothing. I couldn’t change who I was or how I grew up. And to wish for that to be changed means I wish I was different today. But I don’t. I appreciate who I am today.
This acceptance in who I am, and my life isn’t just words that I am writing in a blog. In accepting my life, I have put in a lot of hard work and effort to come to terms with my past. I had self-esteem issues all my life and not working through the thoughts I was telling myself developed into an eating problem and a weight problem. But as I am typing this today I accept where I am at with my confidence, my body and my weight. With this acceptance comes all new kinds of possibilities for my future, for a new version of me that will blow my own mind.
I am happy to be me!
