🗣 Let’s chat about FLAWS for a moment.
I was having an interesting conversation with a friend this morning and she promptly pointed out something about herself that she perceives as a flaw. To which I responded, “How many times do you have to hear that people like that about you?” She proceeded to mention that she has a habit of pointing out her flaws.
This got me thinking about how we deal with our flaws. It’s funny, we so often jump to pointing things out before others can, as a way of protecting ourselves from the hurt of someone else identifying that “flaw” in us. Why do we do that?
It’s because we think that everyone else views us the same way that we view ourselves. Guess what? NOPE. Not even close. Chances are, if you’ve seen me in the past two days, you haven’t noticed that I have a breakout on one side of my face, and I probably didn’t notice that you need to pluck your eyebrows. 🤨
Let’s stop identifying our flaws as a defense mechanism and start letting people see us as we are. Let’s not spotlight the things that we view as “flawed” about ourselves. Let’s shift our focus toward just being who we are and allow others to see us as we are without tainting their view by pointing out the things we find to be less than perfect. 👉🏻
Are you with me?!?
Did you guys know that I used to have a motorbike?⠀
I was thinking of sharing something about myself with you and looking through my pictures, it had to be my riding days.⠀
Man was it fun!! Ever since I was little, I wanted to get my motorbike license and have a bike. I've had my license for almost 6 years and this bike for 3 years.⠀
If I ever get another one, it will be bigger.⠀
I remember talking to people and mentioning I have a motorbike and everyone would ask if I have a scooter or moped... As if girls can't ride "real motorbikes"...⠀
A word of advice, ignore anyone who says "women shouldn't do this, women can't do that, women should stick to, etc". Women can do whatever they want (just like men did for thousands of years without someone trying to stop or discourage them).⠀
So good I had to write it down and pin it up. Thank you @msrachelhollis for always challenging me to be the best version of myself and chase after the things I really want. #last90days#tuesdayinspiration
Losing weight can be super overwhelming... if you scroll through social media you will see keto, paleo, plant based, 1200 calories a day, and probably more keto... cuz that’s all the rage these days. For most of us- these plans are way over our heads. So let’s start with the basics. How can YOU start losing weight without restriction? .
. 🌱 Water Intake- focus on getting half your body weight in ounces of water! 150lbs? 75 ounces of water 👊🏼 .
. 🌱 Move More- The more you move, the better you will feel! Our bodies were made to move- not sit at a desk all day. If 10,000 steps is too much- focus on hitting 500 more than the day before! #movementismedicine .
. 🌱 Vegggggies- Eat your veggies! It’s really that simple. Vegetables are full of nutrients and fiber that our body is craving (25 grams a day minimum)! Whether you sneak them in your smoothie or add them to a stir fry, the more the merrier! .
. 🌱 Protein- Build your meals around your protein first. Whether is lean meet, plant protein, powdered protein- start with that and build from there. You will end up with a more satisfying and well balanced meal. .
. 🌱 Sleep- Focus I’m getting 7-9 hours of sleep a night! This is where our body and our minds recover- This is where the magic happens. .
What one is going to be your main focus this week? Mine is sleep y’all 🙌🏼 I’m a terrible sleeper.. which is why I’m currently sick 😷 I love working- it’s hard for me to turn my mind off 🤦🏽♀️ But my body is winning, so sleep it is! .
Bus life. In all of our days in Bangkok, the ones where we walked in endless circles, scratched our heads in total disbelief, fought like crazy people 😜 and braved the roads trusting the locals are the most rewarding and exciting ones. Travel with the people I hold dear is my “why”. There are just too many beautiful places out there and I will live in the pursuit of getting to experience them. #tuesdayinspiration#beautiful_bangkok#wanderer#travelpic
Major Introduction to our lovely Gracie P.!!
My major is Chemistry: Pre-pharmacy. I plan on going to pharmacy school at Auburn. I chose it because I wanted to be a part of the medical field but also have a flexible schedule so I could be present in my children’s lives. #TuesdayInspiration#zta#zetasaresmart
Who else can agree that training with music will optimise your results in the gym ?😉🙌🏻🎧
I can’t live without music, it’s always been a part of me and a huge influence of mine throughout my life.
In the gym I use music to block out all distractions. To focus on myself and get the work done.
Happy Tuesday! It might still be the beginning of the week but that just means more time to work on your goals and get busy! What gets you inspired on the daily?! For us it's all of YOU who inspire us to keep getting the word out about cosmetics that are safer and produce beautiful results! #SimplyNakedBeauty
