Weekly Workouts

Good Morning Beauties!!!

This past weekend was my birthday!!!  So guess what I did?!

I threw a party for myself!!!

I decided this year, I was going to cook some damn delicious food, have a few drinks, and fill this house with the energy and laughter of all my favorite people…and I succeeded.

What a difference a year makes…

Last year at this time, I was so very uncertain about what the next year would look like but I was so hopeful for good things.  I was humble, accommodating, and selfless – because these seemed like virtuous things to be.  Don’t get me wrong, these are all great qualities…but loving self wasn’t even on my radar because it seemed to go against these more honorable qualities.  I was looking at ways in which I could change myself for the better.  The initial motivating force was most likely acceptance from others.  But as I went through the year, alone for the most part, with ample time with MYSELF, I came to realize the only one that needed to accept ME is ME.  I realized that it is not only okay to LOVE THE SHIT OUT OF YOURSELF, it is necessary, it is enjoyable and it is just the BEST thing ever.

What I learned this past year is that it is absolutely okay to celebrate self.  It is absolutely okay to brazenly fall in love with yourself and what happens when you do this is that you become unstoppable, untouchable and you gain the ability to lean into the best moments of life without worrying about anything other than the happiness in the moment.

This year, I am more confident in myself than I ever have been in my life.  I made it through hell and back and I took those life lemons I’ve talked about and made so much delightful lemonade.  What’s even better?  Life is only getting more fantastic from here.

Here is my 32-year-old advice for aging well…

  1. Drink more water.
  2. Wear sunscreen.
  3. Get your sweat on.
  4. Laugh lots.
  5. Love the shit out of yo’ self.

  1. Hi Jen!! I read your blog (this entry) as my first ever introduction to your blog…..I didn’t even know you had one! But, as karma would have it, it came into my life at the right time. You see, this last Tuesday, I was volunteering (AKA: shamelessly cheering on my 11yr old daughter) at the gr 4-6 track meet at the school. It was so wonderful to see the grade 6 girls again, as I go every year to the meet. But I was struck but the change I saw in the girls this year. In the last year, so many of them have lost their confidence, lost their LOVE for themselves! “I suck”, ” I shouldn’t even try”, ” I’m too big”, ” I’m too small”. Be still my broken heart. This, I have decided is the real problem. Not “bullying” ( no, I don’t condone it), but the lack of self confidence, their lack of self-love. How can they be nice to others when they are not even nice to themselves?? Coincidentally (not) this year my daughter has had the hardest time this far in school getting along with the other girls. I don’t have the answers on how to cure society of this, but at least I see the cause of the problems 😦. I’ll start with myself and my own daughters❤
