Why loving yourself is the best thing, ever!
My body love journey is something I've never thought about until recently, and I’m sure I could write a book on it, so stay tuned, that will come (one day)…
Once upon a time, I was curled up in a ball on the bathroom floor because I had drunk myself stupid, kissed a guy who names I didn’t know and said mean things to my bestest girlfriend and genuinely thought the world was out to get me, it was then that I realised, That everything on the outside was only a reflection of what was going on within me and what I genuinely thought of myself, I felt, Empty, worthless and not enough.
Unfortunately, in my early 20’s I hadn't learnt that alcohol was a poison, not a solution. So, everything I did involve drinking, smoking and eating KFC because I was so hungover the grease would help!
Oh, My Gosh how things have changed.
Now I’m 28, and I didn't change overnight, and I still have wild nights out, but usually I end them with loads of water, a few magnesium tablets and I’m still in bed by a reasonable hour, and I know I can have just as much fun sober, so sometimes I’ll opt not even to drink!
There are a few people that might be reading this, thinking WTF has happened to her. Elle, the girl that would get wild, go crazy and be the life of the party!! Not Drink??? What the heck!
But yes, boys and girls, it does happen, I also rarely eat meat and, I limit my intake of animal products all around, and I also practice daily meditation and gratitude. Because I’ve learnt my body is my temple and it deserves so be treated with love and respect.
Over the next few weeks, I’m going to go through how I’ve made these lifestyle changes, what's worked for me and why I believe in loving myself first is the most important thing we can do for ourselves.
