Today was a milestone day for us. It was Jeff’s first moment of fully experiencing the meaning of these words: “I am body PROUD!” He actually felt the emotion. He swelled with pride. I caught the twinkle in his eye and enjoyed the smile on his lips.
Everyone, regardless of starting point or past history, IS bodyPROUD. Yes, that means you, your loved ones and/or whoever just came to mind.
There are those who are aware of it. They are the individuals who set the intention to make – and enjoy — healthy choices for both their body and/or their mind.
Then there are also those who are not yet aware of it, or don’t believe it at all. That is because they are amongst the people who have not yet decided to “build himself – or herself — bodyPROUD”.
What does this mean?
Well, Jeff’s “Lightbulb Experience” came about by being aware of what he was “building”. He knew that he wanted to build his body symmetrical and to add some mass. He knew he wanted to flatten his stomach, perfect his posture, and show some lines. To do so, he chose to stay focused. He chose to embrace specific lifestyle choices to advance himself forward, and in a healthy manner. Almost immediately, he felt the effects. Today, on his way toward reaching his full bodyPROUD intentions, he experienced that important milestone marker: feeling bodyPROUD.
So? What’s My Point?
To actually feel that feeling, and know with certainty, “I am body PROUD”, prior to even reaching his ultimate goal was itself exciting, exhilarating, very satisfying. It was, in fact, its own reward.
The experience the joy and pride of being bodyPROUD is attainable by all. It’s a matter of purposefully selecting, discovering, intending our goals and embracing our journey.
1. Spend some “personal” time within the next eight hours to visualize and discover your own bodyPROUD intention(s). Uncover the elements that for you resonate “I am bodyPROUD”.
2. Then create your “I am bodyPROUD because” list. Include triumphs you deep down desire. Discover the elements, in body, mind, heart, health, and/or soul, that you wish to regularly experience. Cool. Being aware, you’re now able to run with it and “build yourself bodyPROUD”.
How? (You may ponder).
Well, that part is up to you. It’s up to you to determine, decide, intuit, learn or just know. Follow that pathway of healthy choices with full embrace.
OK. Now What?
Commit to yourself. Track your journey. Visualize, meditate, remain consciously focused on your intention.
Look in the mirror often. And SMILE back. [Say the words “I love you” and maybe even describe why].
With that type of care and dedication, the day will surely arrive – whether it’s the full intended triumph or an exciting bodyPROUD marker — when you actually feel the feeling &/or think the thought: “I am body PROUD”
LOVE YOUR BODY! BUILD YOURSELF BODYPROUD!
