I want to share a few WOW moments I had today. The first was during a video of Lizzie Velasquez, the “Ugliest Woman in The World”. She is the most beautiful spirit and person I have ever seen. I believe she has been a life changing experience for me.
She asks you to think about what defines you as a person. I gave that some thought. My role as a mother is at the top; my healer’s soul; and anything positive I have contributed to the world…even if I don’t know what it is.
Lizzie is beyond an inspiration. What resonated with me most was her positivity in the face of overwhelming negativity. I try to be a positive person with a positive outlook. I know firsthand from teaching HypnoBirthing the power of the laws of attraction. She made me think about the negativity in my life and I am very fortunate. I don’t have anyone around me who is anything other than supportive. My husband, children, friends are always behind me, cheering me on. WOW! I was feeling pretty grateful; smug actually, until I thought of someone.
This person is the worst! She is terribly judgmental and doubts EVERYTHING I do. What’s worse, she is supposed to be my best friend. I always hear her voice in my head telling me I’m not good enough, not smart enough, not ambitious enough. She tells me I’m fat, not a very good mother, a lousy wife and friend. Her influence stops me from being the best person I can be and keeps me from realizing my full potential. She steals my confidence and makes me feel less worthy.
Awful, right? You have to be wondering why I still try to be her friend. Why I allow her negative influence weigh me down. Today, Lizzie made me look at this person and wonder the same thing. Why would I give this person power over me? The revelation I had today, that feels life-changing, is, the only person in my life who isn’t totally supportive of me…is me! WOW!
