“A strong woman is one who feels deeply and loves fiercely. Her tears flow just as abundantly as her laughter. A strong woman is both soft and powerful. She is both practical and spiritual. A strong woman in her essence is a gift to the world.” – Ritu Ghatourey
ALL of us possess the inner strength and power referenced above, but not all of us realize it or believe it.
When it comes to breaking long standing habits that no longer work for us and forming new ones, we need that realization more than ever. Some days you just have to be tough!!
Modifying our behavior…whether it’s getting a handle on emotional eating, starting to exercise, ending binge eating, eating cleaner foods, etc., etc, is challenging. It’s not easy for anyone, but WE are powerful and WE are in control of our thoughts and behaviors. If we feel that isn’t true, then maybe it’s our thought that needs work first, before worrying about our bodies.
Dig deep and find your inner essence. It is there, waiting to be used. We are far stronger than we might think. When it get’s tough and you want to give up, often that’s when you’re on the verge of real change. Stay true to yourself and what is important to you at this point in your life. You’re worth it.
So to all my strong, beautiful friends reading this today….remember that YOU are a GIFT to the world! YOU are both soft AND powerful and you can make any change you want to see in your life. I’m here to help you in any way possible!!!
