Be Certain About YOUR Uncertainties

Hey folks! I can't believe we're in the midst of the holiday season. Where has 2022 gone? I'd say I'm ready for 2023, but I'm not yet.... It feels like 2022 just started and I was counting down, watching the ball drop. It's officially December 1st when I'm typing this, and life flies by! Hence why it's SUPER important to live fully, laugh often, and love much.

Anywho, this post is all about, as the title suggests, being "certain" about your "uncertainties." The name came to me abruptly when I was unpacking groceries the other day, but it stuck! I texted myself a screenshot of the title between the yogurt bag and putting up the eggs.

You may be wondering, what the heck is she going to be talking about? Uncertainty sounds like a BAD word. On the contrary, I'd like to share with you why it's actually better for our self-esteem to be uncertain than what you may be thinking.

Stick with me...

On my journey towards healing my relationship with dieting, food phobia, body image, mindset, among other things, I realized, life is full of uncertainties.

  • It's uncertain when I would recover or how I would recover

  • It was uncertain if I could stop tracking food every second

  • It was uncertain to know how to listen to my body's hunger at first

  • I was uncertain how to love my new body

  • I was uncertain how to have a better mindset

  • It's uncertain.... fill in the blank _____________________

The fact of the matter is, I've began to start cherishing those unsettling moments. In the past I would've shoved them under the rug!

By being able to be OK with uncertainty, it's helped me heal my crazy yo-yo dieting, binging, and anorexia in the past. Now, being uncertain helps me heal towards better self-love, self-care, personal development, kindness, and awareness.

Today, I'd like to share some wins with you, that I've came to peace on how to be sure in unsure situations. I'm sure they are going to help you as well.

Here you go:

  • Embrace the unfamiliar with self-love. The unknown is a scary place, but that's where the magic happens (on ourselves mostly). TAKE THE LEAPS OF FAITH. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY. LOVE YOUR BODY. ETC.

  • Failure is an option. and FAIL BIG! You'll learn something new every time. Let go of the pressure and ease into failing. Even if you "mess up" try again WITHOUT judgement.

  • Accept change, even if it's scary. Will it be easy? No! But change allows more room for self-growth. If I didn't change my diet roller coaster, I'd never be where I am today. You?

  • Small leaps of faith into unpredictability can set you free from any baggage you've been holding onto. Faith, I learned in my Sunday School class years ago is "substance hoped for, but evidence not seen." EVERYTHING is working out for you. I promise it is, you just may have to wait.

  • Letting go of control (with food, your job, your kids, your money, etc.) makes room for more joy and more self-confidence.

  • Risks are needed to make us stronger. Take them often. You know the one I'm talking about. Not the jump off the bridge risk, but the risk towards recovery perhaps? Or the risk to start a business? Or go back to school? Put down the scale?

  • Life takes on a whole new meaning when you are able to adapt, change, and reinvent yourself.

  • Not beating yourself up over every.single.experience. decreases depression and anxiety.

The list goes on and on of why I feel YOU need to be absolutely, positively sure about being unsure.....

I can't tell you how many times this would've made my stress level decrease, my self-esteem improve, and my self-acceptance upgrade if I was living more consciously aware about the taking chances.

There ya have it, some of my reasons of why YOU have got to embrace being unsure. It's your time to shine beautiful one. Be sure of who you are, where you want to go, and understanding your worth!
