Judging A Book By It’s Cover

1931548_1176818474024_884005_n

Books are a beautiful item to have, enjoy, share and learn from … as a kid I would never have thought that would be something I could ever comprehend let alone announce and fully understand the beauty of books …

But the cover can be quite deceiving to the collection of word within it’s pages … Some books can have the most stunning artwork to provoke ideas and notions of what excitement or peril awaits the intrigued reader … only for the reader to be so disinterested and board they wondered what possessed them to pick it up in the first place …

Others can be a simple yet elegant color and font combination the evokes nothing in the reader … but they go ahead and start the book anyway … only to realize it has been hours since they lifted there head out of the depths of the adventure and are reluctant just yet to rejoin reality …

The reason I start with this story is because we … humans … are much the same … you cannot read from the cover of a person what they are truly like unless you open the cover and find out whats going on inside …

For instance … the image you see here is of me on stage a few years ago … in absolute peak physical condition. I’m not quite what ‘society’ sees as beautiful however …

I was the correct weight for society to love …
I had better body fat percentage than the expectations of society desire …
I was studying at University …
I was a mum of two amazing children … (that really don’t know how much I love them)
I had beautiful skin …
My fitness and stamina was that of a top athlete …

… and I came home with titles in my sport that very few can say they achieved …

I was super woman!

The Book Cover was awesome! I was Rock’n It on the outside!

But … there is often a But …

The story on the inside was totally different … the way I was talking to myself …

I would NEVER have allowed my best friend to speak to herself like it …

Nor would I have spoken to anyone else like it and I would protect anyone from receiving that kind of language from another person …

But I did it to myself …

I’m not good enough …
Why should I attempt this I’m crap at this …
I’m not smart enough …
Why would anyone want me I’m ugly …
My life is a mess …
I’m so pathetic …
I got it wrong again … what an idiot …
If I train harder, maybe the pain from that will numb the worthlessness I am …
I’m fat … (yep … I though I was still too fat)

… and this went on for years … the cover looked awesome but story within was, torturous, sad, berating, angry, aggressive, frustrated, heavy, scared, fearful, isolated …
… not a story that reflected the cover in the slightest.

The reason I’m telling this part of my story … is because I realize there are so many others in this global community that have a similar cover to me and pages that might read almost identically to me in thoughts, feelings and emotions …

I just want to say I know where your at … and there is light at the end of that tunnel when you see it … and once you have glimpsed it … follow it … that is the best time to be the story in your next book …

What do I mean by that … You have the choice to change your language, the second you ‘see the light’ … the second you recognize that you are worth more than your internal berating … You can begin writing a new story for yourself.

I did … and through my experiences, personal development and education I am now able to help you do the same … I work with Mind Body Nourishment techniques that …

… help you slow down
… become present
… make informed choices
… learn to love your awesome self
… learn to accept your brilliant self
… understand how to start healing yourself
… and plenty of other things …

All by tweaking what you currently do so that you’re setting yourself up for sustainable, healthy, family friendly results that create the lifestyle you want to enjoy, take pleasure in and live your life to it’s fullest potential.
