My cousin recently gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. He’s a healthy and happy little guy, however he has a club foot. Easily correctable, but it does take dedication to doctors appointments and medical protocols to correct the foot. Really not an issue in the big scheme of life, but as any new mother would, she worried.
Would he learn to crawl and walk on time? I laughed to myself and told her, “Yes!” I told her and thought how absolutely lucky he was because unlike anyone over the age of 2 he doesn’t have anyone telling him he can’t or he’s not supposed to nor is he bombarded with images to destroy his self esteem and prevent his crawling and walking abilities.
On a daily basis, we have many images helping to destroy our self-esteem, or make us feel less than perfect or destroying our dreams and hopes. TV, ads, magazine covers, negative people, everywhere we turn a subliminal message is sent telling us something is wrong with the way we are or someone is telling us outright. And we are given images of perfection that are airbrushed or photo shopped, thus the model used to exemplify perfection can’t live up to the image that is projected.
If we could be like that beautiful baby boy, not knowing preconceptions, not understanding limits, not having someone telling us we can’t and not feeling negativity. What do you do? Would losing weight be easier? Would our lives be more fulfilling? Would we dare to realize our true dreams? What kind of life would we create for ourselves if you were never told something was amiss?
“Life isn’t about finding yourself, Life is about creating yourself”
Losing weight via the hCG diet plan, or some other weight loss means, is only a small answer to a bigger question. Once you lose weight, what next? What do you really want to accomplish? What is your true goal? What is holding your back?
