Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had an awesome weekend.
It was a rainy one here in New England so I’m being honest when I say the couch & me were best buddies on Sunday. It felt so nice to have a day of nothing where I could get laundry done, clean the apartment, & hang with the pup after traveling over these last weeks.
Kita was feeling the rain vibes as well.
Last week I came across this quote & it just hit home with me. Do you ever see a quote and you think THIS IS SPEAKING TO ME RIGHT NOW!….this was it.
“Don’t trade your authenticity
for approval.” 💛
I mean…THIS QUOTE…I love.
Let’s chat APPROVAL:
We all want approval, am I right? It makes us feel good, worthy, & wanted.
It can also go to the other extreme of losing our authentic self in order to gain more likes, followers, friends, or prove yourself to others while you’ve already proved yourself to…you.
And trust me, I know it’s easier said than done.
I’m around teenagers every single day that feel less than if there picture didn’t get enough likes…and I just want to say out loud – YOU are so much more than how many likes you get.
But sometimes it’s easier to say to someone else, than it is to ourselves? Ya feel me.
Anytime I feel like I’m comparing myself to others & looking for approval, I check back in to my true self. #ImHuman
I’ve been in situations where I was trying SO hard to prove myself to others that I was losing who I was.
Social media can be an awesome thing, don’t get me wrong…a platform for to share, create, teach, & inspire.
without social media…I’m still a hardworking human who gets to help people on their fitness journeys every single day at the gym, in their homes, at the park, or in a class.
Without social media…I’m still a empathetic human who just wants to see people succeed so badly.
Without social media…I’m still a wife, dog mom, friend, sister, daughter, granddaughter, aunt, & dang passionate personal trainer.
Instead of always looking for approval from external factors, look within.
Find approval through how true
you are to yourself. 💛
That’s where the magic lives.
Know that if you’re coming from a good place, good things will happen.
What are you without social media?
Those moments that no one sees that make you who you truly are.
No matter how many followers or likes you have, your authentic self is why people are coming to you.
It’s a reminder that I use with myself often.
Keep doing YOU, y’all.
Be true to you,
