There will always be someone who is better, faster, stronger than you, but guess what? YOU ARE IT! You are the dream, you are the goal, you are the greatest vision your ancestors could have ever imagined. When self doubt starts to creep in, kick that shit to the curb, you bigger, better things to do than waste your time on the "I'm not enough" and and put that motivation into the "I'm more than enough" energy.
See that picture there? It probably looks like a girl who feels confident, assured, dare say, even sexy? If you thought that, you would be thinking right, but that girl didn't feel that way for a long time. My journey of self-love has taken a whole lifetime thus far, and I imagine, it will take the rest of my life as well.
But I want you to know, that I give you permission to rest, even if you won't give it to yourself. You need rest for your body, your mental and emotional health, and just to allow yourself to heal. Our bodies are magnificent machines, but like any machine, sometimes it needs oiled, or turned off to rest in order to let it function and optimal levels.
