Fear....

Fear is a fascinating thing.  I am being straight up honest right now in saying that I have deleted this post 8x because of fear.  Fear of being vulnerable, fear of being mocked, fear of someone discovering that I am not good at this...

But ...wait....isn't this some of the same thing that people feel when I start talking about letting go of dieting and nourishing yourself??  Isn't this the same fear that makes people follow the path they think they are supposed to be on instead of breaking free and being on the path they want to be on??  I need to get over my fear of "not being good enough" because I want to break down the barriers that are put on us in diet culture and society.  I want to be a voice like the others around the globe that I admire.  So today I push back on fear.  Today I stand up for what I believe in.  

These posts may not always follow an order or a flow.  I think they will come organically from things I read, hear, experience.  I am giving myself permission to do that to help breakdown my fear... 

This morning I read a perfect quote posted on Facebook from my friend at Nourished Body "If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate you are sure to wake up somebody- Henry Longfellow"  

And now I start knocking...no fear...you are not your weight, you are not your latest diet, you are you and that is who you need to be

until next time be Unapologically you.....
