Perhaps you’ve spent years feeling like you’ve failed at dieting and you’re experiencing the effects of getting older now. If you’re tired of feeling like your own worst enemy, staring at yourself in the mirror, examining your flaws, wishing and pining away for a younger, thinner version of yourself I have good news for you.

Acceptance is not giving up and it’s not settling. It’s just being at peace with where you are. That makes it easier to move and change and grow.

If your goal is to learn how to love and accept yourself and you can’t imagine it ever happening without getting major surgery or losing weight, you’re setting yourself up for misery. That’s really painful.

And you don’t deserve that. You deserve the best because you’re worth it. Full stop. Period.

Self-worth and self-love is the cornerstone of success and happiness. If you don’t believe you’re a person of value, you will not feel comfortable speaking up and saying what’s on your mind.

You will stay under the radar and avoid being seen at all costs. You will miss opportunities to share your brilliance with the world and gain visibility and appreciation for what you do. You will find yourself in unconscious patterns of self-sabotaging behavior where you will hurt and disappoint yourself repeatedly and attract other people in your life who will treat you badly.

You will walk around feeling like life’s victim, thinking that you were cursed with bad luck, born under a bad star or blaming others or God for your pain. I know all this because I lived it.

As I learned from personal experience, it’s never too late to turn it all around. Because your thoughts are powerful. When you change your thoughts, you change your world.

I wrote my book, “Lovin’ the Skin You’re In: The Juicy Woman’s Guide to Making Peace with Food and Friends with Your Body” to empower women to love and respect themselves.

I did that because as an abuse survivor I learned firsthand the horrible consequences that ensue from living a life of feeling and thinking like a victim.

I know from personal experience that having a low self-esteem affects your relationships, your finances, your sex life, your kids, your pets, your health, your spirituality, everything!!!!

If you’ve been depressed, grieving, feeling victimized by life, you are in a powerful position to turn around and embrace the joy of living. You don’t have to remain miserable anymore. And the solution is not surgery or dieting. Just a change of attitude.
