Recently, I started back going to the gym and eating healthier. I’ve been focused on eating foods and doing exercises that work for my body. Through my research, I’ve discovered some healthy foods I either have to eat in moderation or I don’t really need to eat at all. I thought, how can something that’s good not be good for me. Of course I thought deeper about it. My friends, my new eating and workout regime birthed this week’s Truth Tuesday.
It’s no secret that I’m knee-deep in my second tour of self-discovery. I recently blogged about it HERE. A large part of self-discovery is looking at yourSELF! We’ve all seen the memes about cutting toxic people, things and situations out our lives. I thought, “am I toxic to anyone” and if so, “how am I also a “good” person”? It’s like in my mind if I’m toxic to a particular person then I can’t be “good”. Then, it hit me! Kale is a freaking SUPERFOOD, but if you’re on a low carb diet you might not want to eat it. Listen, I’m a SUPERFOOD, but depending on where you are in life I might not be good for you at this moment. What I’m learning is someone else’s journey has nothing to do with me! If they want to add this superfood and all its magical nutrients, truth and compassion to their life, they will be blessed. BUT, if right now their current journey calls for something a little different then there’s room for both of us to peacefully walk away and still succeed. There is nothing wrong with them or me, our current phases of life just aren’t “good” for one another at the moment.
I’m learning to embrace that I’m a superfood while knowing there are many superfoods so I won’t be “good” for everyone. That still doesn’t take away from my potent, powerful and down right dopeness!
Here are a few insights from my current self-discovery:
- My truth is MINE, but everyone doesn’t have to believe it or agree with it
- Humility is something you extend, but sadly sometimes you don’t get it back (it’s not for the faint of heart)
- We’ve all been broken, but the way to identify the ones that still are is by their sharp edges (see #2 they won’t extend humility to you)
- Forgive yourself
- Love Heals
I’m headed to the gym, until next time loves…
Every single of these things is so important to remind ourselves of and to try to live by. Love all of your blogs!
Awww thanks so much Ashton ❤️
I love this. That’s the goal…do what works for you!!
Yes ma’am so true
I really liked the notes about self discovery at the end; especially the note about forgiving yourself. I’m very hard on myself and forget to extend forgiveness to myself all the time. Once I learn to forgive myself I can move forward.
I’m hard on myself too girl
I appreciate your insights from your self- discovery journey. So many people are afraid to deal with their stuff. Dealing with my own triggers and trauma has brought me so much peace.
This is so true!!!
We’ve all been broken and forgive yourself. Say this again. I am just learning these lessons in my thirties. So true.
Powerful message and so true! We have to realize when we are enough for ourselves and we won’t be that Superfood for everybody but that’s ok too.
Yes ma’am I definitely agree ❤️
Yes to all of the self-discovery tips! I personally am learning and applying #s 4 and 5. Awesome post.
4 & 5 are constant ones
I love this so much! You’re absolutely right. xo
Thanks so much for reading ❤️
I love how you compared yourself to be a superfood, and like kale, you may not be everyone’s cup of tea. Luckily for you, I like kale lol
😂😂😂 I’m glad to hear that you do
These are great reminders! I’m all about being healthy too! I love the image of you and your love.
Thanks so much ❤️
Great read! I’ve been on a road of self discovery a bit as well. I must admit it feels good, I’m making changes for me and the growth has been amazing. Timing is everything. Some folks will fall off and I’m okay with that.
I agree, it does feel great ❤️
Love the insights. It’s so important that we do regular self-reflection. You end up discovering so much about yourself.
That’s so true
You’re speaking some truth in this post! Loving all five of your insights about your self-discovery path, they are so good and so true.
Thanks love! ❤️
I so needed this thank you sometimes I do forget about me
Yes, always remember to take some time out for yourself ❤️
I’m a superfood! Should be on a tee. Lol. The reference makes so much sense. Everything good ain’t good for you and when walking the road of self discovery you get more in tune with what it is YOU need.
😂 it would be a dope tee! You’re so right the road to self-discovery definitely makes you get more in tune with yourself.
I like that saying Im a SUPERFOOD. I think people need to asset what is good and tailor it for their life and not what someone else is doing. If it makes you feel good and it elevate you its good, you shouldnt have to question that.
Thanks for reading ❤️
