I get questions everyday from you how I can be so comfortable in my own skin. Today I am but it’s taken years. The first years in my life was filled with hate and negativity towards my body. Since I was around 11 years old I can remember wishing I was as skinny as my best friends. Hating myself when I couldn’t fit in my best friends jeans. Around 13 years old, Bulimia and Anorexia started growing inside of me. With a force so strong that it was impossible to defend myself.

Today, the thing I love most about my body are my hips. The curves on my hips and my waist that makes my hips look bigger. But above everything, I’m grateful everyday my body is healthy, strong and energised. I can start crying of gratitude in my Meditation when I think of how lucky I am to have a body that works. A body that is strong and that makes it possible for me to move in nature and to practise Yoga everyday.

My best tips on how to love your body:

💗 Meditate on how grateful you are to have a body that’s functioning and that it’s healthy.

💗 Use daily affirmations like ‘I love my body. I’m grateful for my body. My body is my temple.’

💗 Write down all your insecurities about your body, all the old ideas of what you’re not happy with, and BURN IT. Let it go and fill the space with beautiful, loving and kind words to your body.

How is your relationship with your body? Do you have any tips on how to love it more? Please share in comments 🤍

Namaste with love 🙏🏼

✨It’s never too late to quit & start over✨

On the 28th of January 2020, I worked my last day at the Finance company where I had worked at for 5 years. I had changed role every year so I had done over five different roles since I started. I had worked so hard to get where I was, at one of the most attractive, premium and best department in the company. I was finally there, where I had worked so hard to get to and where I had always wanted to be. So why was I feeling emptier than ever?

Because I had followed my mind, but not my heart. I had chased some kind of idea of success and happiness based on what I thought success was. When I started practise Yoga on a daily basis, it started getting easier to feel with the heart instead of listening to the mind and I could no longer live with the fact that I was spending 40 hours a week just to pay my rent and bills.

Quitting dosen’t mean that you give up. It means that you have had enough, that you’re ready for something new or different. It’s okay to feel completely different from what you thought you would. It’s okay to let go of any ideas, thoughts and expectations of what everyone else will think if you change your life. You are the only one that can change and if you don’t do it, no one will do it for you.

What would you do if you didn’t have to work one more day in your life? That’s the question that made me realise my life purpose. Would love to hear your answer in comments ✨

Namaste with love 🙏🏼
