Life, fat or thin, isn't life if you are not in it. How can you connect when you project into the future what you will look like when you are thin and reach back into the past to lament the times that you were and lost it?

Rebecca Lammersen

I recognize no one will honor me, not a man or a yoga student, if I don't value myself first. I must claim my worth in every aspect of my life, because in the end, in the beginning, in all of it, it comes down to one thing, loving myself.

You can live every day in fear of what may happen, but what if none of those fears are realized? You have spent your life wasting all of your energy on the negatives and never enjoying all of the good things in your life.

Trading in Selfish for Self Worth

Danielle Vaughn | Posted 02.14.2015 | Healthy Living
Danielle Vaughn

The self-care I'm referring to goes beyond personal hygiene. It's making things that keep you happy a priority. For example, I enjoy practicing yoga, walking outside, a good night's sleep, a warm bath, a bike ride, listening to music, and dancing.

Caitlyn Corradino

I do want to keep exercise in my day and be the healthiest, highest functioning version of myself that I can be.
