Motivation Monday: Self Love

When we talk about goals, we tend to think in numbers: weight, reps, speed, inches, pace. We measure our progress by how fast we ran out last mile, or the breadth of weights on the squat rack. But maybe – just maybe – we’re getting it totally wrong.

Self progress shouldn’t be solely quantitative. What about self acceptance? Confidence? Self love? We all search to build a better body in order to love ourselves, but we’ve got that recipe backwards. Health and wellness are the physical outcome of inner peace and acceptance. Loving ourselves first is the path to a happier and more abundant life.

A six pack won’t fix all our problems, but radical self acceptance will – and make it easier to snag that six pack if its really that important to us.

Just a thought 🙂
