In this special 2-part episode I’m speaking to two incredible women who I've had the pleasure of working with in You, On Fire.
In this episode, we meet Asya...
Asya is a writer, speech therapist and mom to 3 kids. Her biggest frustration with her body was comparing it to others - especially at the gym. She loved the dance classes at her gym, but all she could think about was what was wrong with her body and how it compared to others and what others were thinking of her.
She says, “I was so cluttered by thoughts of comparing myself and that’s all I could think about. I couldn’t enjoy the dancing part anymore.”
She wanted to be able to enjoy something that she loved so much.
After joining You, On Fire, she says, ”The biggest lightbulb moment was realizing that my body and my value are totally separate. I honestly didn’t know this before.”
Now, she says, “I have ups and downs. I have moments where I think, OMG I’m good, I don’t have these thoughts anymore. Then there are times where I have negative thoughts, but now I have a rebuttal. I have a way to respond to them and I don’t need to believe them. The difference is that I don’t go down the same black hole that I used to.”
She says, “I am compassionate with myself now and that’s something I didn’t have before.”
Overall, she says that, “It’s freed up so much mental space. All that mental space is cleared out and I’m able to enjoy my dance classes. I think it’s made me fitter because I’m in the workout now instead of critiquing myself.”
She also says, “Join the program. Do not hesitate. And then join the calls - they are so valuable. It’s amazing to hear other people’s thoughts because you realize you’re not the only one.”
