What are you waiting for?

Are there certain things you are “waiting” to do because you don’t think your body is the “right size” yet?

Think about the last month of your life. How many things did you politely decline or postpone because you didn’t think your body was “thin enough” or “the right size”?

Maybe in the last month, you ducked away from the camera or hid in the back row. Maybe you decided not to post your online dating profile because you’re still working on losing those last 5 pounds. Maybe you declined a friend’s wedding invitation because you didn’t want to run into your ex, not at your current size. Maybe, without even realizing it, you held yourself back from a business opportunity because you felt self-conscious about appearing onstage, on camera, or speaking in front of a boardroom filled with men. Maybe you bookmarked a Caribbean cruise vacation and told yourself, “Next summer, but not right now.”

There are 3.5 billion women living on planet earth. If we got together and made a list of every single experience that we’ve chosen to postpone because of body-shame, that list would probably encircle the globe fix or six times. It would reach to the moon and back.

Postponing is a dangerous habit. Postponing steals our lives. It keeps us stuck in a bored, unhappy place. It sends us to our graves filled with regrets, unfulfilled wishes, untaken vacations, unlaunched businesses, unrealized potential. It’s quietly killing us.

Do not wait for anything. Do not wait for a permission slip. Do not wait for that number on the scale to move downward. Whateveryou crave most—fun, laughter, connection, pleasure, more free time, more money, a different morning routine, a new career—it’s up to you to create it. You have to make the first move. You have to take the initiative. And you have to start right now. Not “on Monday.” Not “next summer.” Now.

No more waiting, honey. Your life is happening now. Today: do something that you’ve been “postponing.” Buy one outfit that you love. Take yourself on a date. Book that vacation. Instead of obsessing over creating a smaller waistline, focus on creating a bigger, bolder, more exciting life.

This is exactly what we talk about in my online BARE DAILY Membership Community. ​​​​​​​A community filled with women who want to love big, eat well, sweat often—and take on the world. NOW. A community of women who have been there waiting, and decided they don’t want to wait anymore to start MAKING A SCENE. 

We take care of ourselves in a loving, kind way. We live today. We get rid of the shit that’s holding us back (like diets that are impossible to maintain) from living life now, to the fullest. And we do it together.

Enrollment JUST OPENED. If you want to be a part of a community of women like this. Don’t wait. We want you there NOW. As you are. Check it out right here. Enrollment will be closing January 24th so get in there!

XOXO,
Susan
