Measuring Up

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” by Marianne Williamson This is one of my all-time favorite quotes! What could you accomplish if you truly allowed yourself to believe that you are “Powerful Beyond Measure”!? This week I will be talking a lot about measurements, whether it’s your waistline or the ounces of your protein. But one thing I want to make clear is that no matter what your measurements are, your worth is NEVER measured by your outward appearance. It is only when we learn to love our spirit, who we truly are on the inside, that we can then appreciate and love our bodies for what they do for us or how they look. Start on the inside first. One way you can keep track or “measure” your inner growth is by starting a Gratitude Journal. Every morning or night take just a few minutes to write down the things you are grateful for in your life, especially things that you are grateful for in yourself. An entry might look something like this: Today I am so grateful that I had the strength to play with my kids. I feel so fortunate to have a healthy body that allowed me to take a walk with my husband and dogs tonight. I am blessed to have such great friends and the ability of being a good friend back to them. I love that I am able to grow my passion for _____ in my career. I love my heart and compassion for others. Where your attention goes, your life grows… so the more you pay attention to the things you LOVE about yourself, the more things you will realize you actually love. When you truly love yourself and your body you will want to take better care of them. A healthy mind = a healthy body. 🙂 As we go into talking about measurements this week, remember… You Are Powerful Beyond Measure so go out and live like the brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous woman you are, because deep down… you know you are!!! In Health and Happiness, Lauren McBride
