Taking Control of Your Inner Mean Girl

You know the voice in your head who habitually berates you and catalyzes a stream of negative thinking? The voice who feeds you poisonous thoughts, like:

πšˆπš˜πšžβ€™πš›πšŽ πš—πš˜πš 𝚐𝚘𝚘𝚍 πšŽπš—πš˜πšžπšπš‘.

πšˆπš˜πšžβ€™πš›πšŽ πš πš˜πš›πšπš‘πš•πšŽπšœπšœ.
πšˆπš˜πšžβ€™πš›πšŽ πš—πš˜πš πšπšŽπšœπšŽπš›πšŸπš’πš—πš 𝚘𝚏 πš•πš˜πšŸπšŽ.

π™½πš˜πš‹πš˜πšπš’ πš•πš’πš”πšŽπšœ 𝚒𝚘𝚞.

That’s your inner mean girl. She’s hostile and apathetic and controlling. She loves to make you feel small and create upheaval, because that’s when she’s most powerful. She doesn’t want to see you happy; she wants to see you sit in misery. And she’s been pretty successful at putting you in that seat.

All she has to do is get loud enough and fill your head with noise so you become completely incapable of blissful thinking.

Baby girl, it’s time to put her in her seat. I want you to stand up for yourself and tell her to shut the fuck up. You don’t have to listen to her or let her words constrict you. You can stand your ground, instead of allowing her to push you down the cascade of self-sabotaging thoughts.

You are not the things she tells you. Reclaim your power and come back to center. Breathe. You are not your thoughts. You are you. You are life. And you are light.

Anytime she tries to re-enter your life (and she will), tune her out and come back to your breath. Return to the infinite power of the truth and the present moment.

Three Ways to Practice Body Acceptance

Do I love my stretch marks and cellulite? No, I don’t love themβ€”I also don’t hate them. I just accept them and I’m okay with the fact that they’re there.

Self love and body acceptance doesn't exactly mean loving every single part of your body. And this might catch you by surprise because it seems to go against everything that love and acceptance stands forβ€”but it’s not.

It’s not about learning to love and romanticize over something you don’t like. It’s about normalizing it, accepting it for what it is and not letting it define you.

Instead of trying to β€œlove” something you don’t love, try this instead:

1. Bring awareness to it without judging it or linking it to a negative meaning. If you see cellulite, call it for what it is, rather than saying something like: gross, disgusting, ugly. Keep it at cellulite without the self sabotaging story attached to it.

2. Normalize it and accept it for what it is. Remind yourself that rolls, folds, and dimples are just normal things that your body creates.

3. Don’t attach it to your worth. It doesn’t deem you as unworthy and it doesn’t represent your beauty. These things are apart of your body, but they certainly don’t define it.

Are Negative Thoughts Normal?

Do you feel like when you’re wearing a bikini, your insecurities tend to cloud over you? Your thoughts are preoccupied with how you look rather than how much fun you’re having (or could be having)? You think things like...

 β€œI look gross”
β€œHer body is better than mine”
β€œI don’t want to take my clothes off”

What if I told you that all these thoughts are harmless? And they don’t have to hold power over you?

What most β€œself love gurus” don’t tell you is that negative thoughts will come upβ€”and that’s okay.

A thought is just thought; you will have weird ones, silly ones, positive ones, uncomfortable ones, and negative ones.

But these thoughts will only affect you when you get lost in themβ€”when you attach yourself to the story and believe it as true.

But, you are not your thoughts. Don’t latch on to them, don’t let them control you and don’t let them take momentum.

You deserve to frolic around in your bikini without a single concern about your appearance, because your body is not wrong. There is absolutely nothing to worry about.

Drink your marg out of a red solo cup (because glass in water is dangerous - duh) and lounge around on inflatable tubes.

Have fun, relax, and stop giving fucks about things that aren’t worth giving a fuck about.
