What do most people do when they assess themselves physically in a reflective substance?
Do they send a lot of loving, accepting, positive vibes? Or do they send judgment, biased, resistance and even disgust?
I think the biggest challenge that most people have when it comes to improving their health is the fact that they can’t get over where they are right now. And they’re so obsessed with where they are right now, they can’t see the fucking light at the end of the tunnel.
‘’But Kerwin, I don’t want to accept where I am right now,’’ and that’s why you are where you are.
Because whatever you resist will persist. That’s just how it works. If you’re not accepting of your current state of health right now, then that’s going to be your biggest obstacle. Because before we can work on any problem, what must we first do? We must be willing to acknowledge it and accept – that it’s a reality.
Step one, admit that there’s a problem.
Stop resisting where you are. You are where you are. It is what it is. Accept it. If you can’t accept where you are, you can’t accept yourself, and if you can’t accept yourself, you will judge yourself. If you judge yourself, you will judge others, which means you will project. And you’ll be constantly chasing something that you won’t be able achieve purely based on the fact that you haven’t accepted where you are in the first place.
So, if you can’t accept yourself for who you are right now. How on fucking God’s earth can you accept yourself for who you are when you actually get to where you want to go.
Because what you’re going to do is take that baggage with you.
You know, some of us have carry-on luggage, some of us are just dragging around stuff that should be checked in. It’s time to check in some of that luggage and move forward.
It all starts with self. We need to accept who we are, if we want to become the person we want to create.
