I am spunky, witty, intelligent, and outgoing. I am overweight, have drank too much on several occasions, care way too much what others think, and often judge. I have come to the realization that for all of the negative things I can find about myself, there are not only many more positive instances but I can in fact turn the negatives into positives.
First, let’s start with being overweight. Without being overweight, I would have never had the opportunity to love me for me, curves and all. Without being overweight, I would have never known the support system out there. Without being overweight, I would have never started this journey to better health.
Without drinking too much, I would have never had my first panic attack which led me to a Jen version of enlightenment. Without drinking too much, I would have never realized how much my husband truly loves and supports me. Without drinking too much, I would have never realized how I could be a better me.
Without caring so much what others think, I would have not turned into the super caring person that is me. Without caring so much what others think, I would have not committed to so much personal development and soul searching. Without caring so much what others think, I would not have realized how people pleasing is really not pleasing at all.
Without judging others, I would not have realized how much I strive not to judge. Without judging others, I would not have realized that judging is human nature and yet, can be helped. Without judging others, I would have not been able to realize my own faults being projected through the judgments of others.
I know that everything happens on time and on purpose. So, when you start beating yourself up for those so-called negative qualities you have, put a spin on them. Identify why it was so important that you have these qualities and how it has blossomed you into the amazingness that is you.
