I’ve been following @jamiejoyce2
for a while now and love the messages she sends to her followers. Her post yesterday hit close to home. I’ve never been the pretty girl either. I was the one with a fun personality or that you pick first for any game from sports to drinking games, but never the pretty one. I was self conscious of my weight and my looks at all times, even when I was succeeding in everything else. I picked up bad habits and my biggest flaw of never feeling ‘good enough’. Not good enough in anything I did or was.
I started Crossfit four years ago and began to clean up my nutrition two years ago with @foodcertitudenutrition
- I have changed a lot in how I see myself, from not being able to wear shorts or take off my shirt to almost not giving a damn what people see to being strong and a decent crossfitter. Key word almost. Like many, I still struggle with the not good enough, I had a recent breakdown with my birthday coming up and not feeling like I am where I ‘should’ be in life.
Luckily I am have people that know how to tell me how wrong I am, that I am where I need to be, that I am enough, and that everything is serving its purpose - even the setbacks. Thanks to the people I’ve met through Crossfit (@crossfitblackbox @collegehillcrossfit @crossfitop
)as well as other incredible people, I am strong, I am enough.
