It takes the one standing in the mirror 🖤

I smile when people say to me…

“She’s naturally got a good shape”!! Or…

“it’s easy for you, Aba…it’s good for you…you just do this so easily”

🖤WELL…..do not be so quick to judge!!..This may surprise you….that When I found my new way of life..working on myself 14 years ago, I was extremely shy, I had a FEAR of doing things that would improve my life, I used to think that others were better than me …and I certainly didn’t have much confidence.

🖤Those of you I went to school with will know how introverted and quiet I was, although I don’t know how I ended up being picked as a Service Prefect back in the days !!😅

🖤I knew something had to change in order to become the person I wanted to become one day. I had to grow up, step up and show up. I realised no one was going to do it for me👑…..ONLY the person standing in the mirror…ME!!

🖤Don’t get me wrong, I had a great job with awesome colleagues and I have a wonderful hubby and close knit family and friends who have always been supportive and there for me. This is about me battling with my limiting beliefs‼️💗

🖤The reason I started my journey in the first place was that I used to feel tired most of the time, felt hungry, sluggish, etc and had a fairly big tummy which I struggled to get down.🤨

🖤Then, I found a programme and community to plug into which changed everything! Today, I feel extremely fortunate to have developed personally within this wonderful community of people who support each other and stay accountable to each other👌👑💗. I have a sense of purpose, I feel healthier and fitter in my late fifties and above all, I feel empowered and confident enough to help others feel the same way as I do.🙏💗👑
