It’s funny how time can change so much, how your belief in yourself can be the key to change… even how your mind can change over time it’s truly incredible. I am a believer that everything happens for a reason but you also have so much power within yourself to shape your future.
Are you Confused already? I know I would be… So Let’s take a step backwards today is a very special day, one that If you had told me a year ago was possible I would have laughed at you (literally). So what is this special day???
Well, today I have been weight restored for a full year, something I was told was impossible for me. Has it been an easy year? No there have been times when I have doubted myself, felt lost. I was so confused always questioning myself and literally driving myself insane.
I was actually so afraid to try different things, to socialise, to engage with people on the internet and in real life. I had no idea who I was at this part of the journey is all new to me I had reached the goal then I thought what now??
As weird as it sounds I felt more lost and vulnerable then before as I had no goal, I didn’t know where to go from here…. Ok so this is getting quite deep but I think it needs to be, but I do actually have some tips and points. As I really want people to get something out of this post.
I think the biggest piece of advice would definitely be Don’t let anyone’s opinion DEFINE you or prevent you from having those dreams, those goals. The funny thing is it’s only really been since Bodypower and Germany that my beliefs have changed so much it’s unbelievable.
Get out of your comfort zone, say YES to going to events, where you can meet other people who share the same interests. Have the courage to send that message to someone on Insta, or that text or even better go over a speak to someone, it will make you feel so good and could make that person day. If there is an opportunity available no matter how big or small like an internship, Germany or simply an application form if there is any part of you that wants to apply then GO FOR IT !!!
Goals seriously helped me in my journey to weight restoration and they gave me something to work towards, I neglected to make any after hitting my end goal in August last year. That was a big mistake, and since February this year I have started to use goals again and wow its changed my mentality a hell of a lot. It’s so motivating to have a vision of where you want to go even if you don’t know what that will look like, I had no idea what weight restoration would look like, but I still worked every day to get there.
Having small goals that you can achieve along the way towards a bigger goal because these big changes don’t happen overnight they are achieved through lots of small victories along the way.
Lastly but most importantly surround yourself with like-minded people I can’t stress enough the importance of support and just socialising it really has been so liberating communicating with others. Even if that means putting yourself out there and going to events or places on your own, make that first step you never know where it could lead =)
Finally, point don’t be afraid to ask for help, whether that’s family, professional’s, getting a coach whatever you think will help you that’s the main thing
