Episode 37: Welcome back to You Are the Magic Pill, I’m your host Victoria. On today’s episode today I want to share with you comments about a video that I watched last year, and it was about the art of being yourself. I know I’ve talked about this before, about being your authentic self and finding out who you truly are. When somebody says, go love yourself. just go do it, just be yourself. Sometimes you’re like, How do I do that? What do you mean? How do I love myself? What if I just don’t like myself? So I’m going to share with you a list of things that we can use to remind us, to guide us to love ourselves. Remember that you are here for a reason, you are living here with a purpose, you may not exactly know what it is yet, but regardless, you are living it.
Ready? Let’s go…
• And so if you find yourself comparing, wherever it might be, a success that you think that somebody else is having, or body image too, or maybe you view their life as happier. I don’t know, only you know that that’s a shutout within yourself, and so I just encourage you to love that part about you and to realize that you are beautiful just the way you are. Number three, your intuition will never fail, if you learn to listen. (3:42)
• if you don’t want to be where you are, then make the decision to not be where you are, you are. The only reason you are is because you desire to be. That is something that I’m dealing with right now. And maybe you are too, but that is the truth, we create our own reality, and it might be based on something from your childhood, something that you were taught and that you don’t realize is keeping you from fulfilling what you really want to do, and becoming aware of that is key to be able to break through those upper limits. And like I said, I am really in the trenches of that right now, going back to childhood stuff, realizing that there are some things that are being uncovered there that are playing out still in my reality today, just an old story that I need to re-write and I’m in the process of doing that. So definitely know that you can break free from your old stories too. (5:41)
• And sometimes it’s not easy to do. It takes discipline and dedication, and it’s not going to happen overnight, right? And that’s the one thing that I really want to share with you is that sometimes you’re going to slip, sometimes you’re going to fall back. It’s like whenever you’re trying to work out or you’re on a weight management program, then maybe you slip back a little bit, just try not to beat yourself up so much and realize that it’s a process and you’re uncovering some stuff here. You’re trying to fall in love with all parts of you. Some things are being shown and sometimes it can make you have some emotions come up. And that’s okay. You feel all the feels and work through those emotions. (8:22)
• We’re not here to be lost in fear and negativity, we’re just not meant to do that. We’re here to have human experiences and to wake up and realize that we do not have to live in fear. I love that saying, that I’ve seen on an image before, where fear is false evidence appearing real. It is because it’s just something that we make up, something that you make up in your head, I make a ban on my head and we just tend to say, what if this, what if that? And it’s not even true. And we get so consumed with the fear and the negativity because of the society that we live in, but we truly can turn that around, but we need to know that it’s a process, and to be gentle with yourself. So falling in love with yourself is a process, if you’re not already there. (11:08)
