A friend that I admire deeply helped me realize some things about myself and why I felt like I was in such a rut these past few weeks. I can wholeheartedly admit that humility is a humbling lesson to experience. I never thought I’d ever be a culprit of arrogance, but I’m only human.
I assumed that asserting my confidence in certain situations would help get me what I want, but it doesn’t work when your confidence passes that fine line and becomes ego-driven. With this said, the couple of situations I created for myself taught me a valuable lesson which is worth more than anything I could want.
I want to write this blog post as a reminder to myself to always do my best to not get into a state of arrogance where I would judge others or think of myself as “better.” Moving forward, I can identify (and become aware) when I move into an this state and remind myself to stay humbled, because that’s the Stephanie that I’m proud to be and I love myself enough to continually make myself proud.
Don’t allow a few extra pounds of muscle get to your head, especially when people begin to admire your aesthetics and boost your ego. Instead, try having this perspective: be grateful that you are helping inspire others in some way and that you are disciplined and love yourself enough to be more fit than you already are. Do everything with purpose, set your intention so that you know why you’re doing what you’re doing and remember, gratitude is always the answer! Well… only if you want to be happy ????.
Let me know if you’re human and made the same mistake I did, I’d love to hear your story in the comments below!
