In the past few weeks, there’s been a running theme in my posts here on Weightless: appreciating what our bodies can do for us. (I couldn’t help the pun!)
When we push through personas that tell us we’re not athletic, we’re weak, uncoordinated and talentless, when we do something that reminds us of our strength, our body image inevitably improves, and we feel empowered.
We blaze through these limiting beliefs, and we stand taller and feel prouder.
Suddenly, we realize, with awe, “Wow, I can do that. I’m so glad I tried.”
Because you just gave yourself a chance. A shot to prove yourself and any naysayers wrong. Whatever the outcome, you pushed through the persona.
