It’s Worth It

27. November 2014 by swissfitchick

Hey Fit Swiss Chick readers!  Carly from Snack Therapy here, with a totally recycled but (hopefully) totally awesome post.  Like Lucie, I’ve struggled with disordered eating, negative body image, and general feelings of worthlessness.  It sucks.  And nobody – NOBODY – should ever have to feel like that.

So today I just want to tell you all that you’re worth it.

Even if you don’t always feel it, even if you have bad weeks, even if you (gasp) make mistakes and say stupid things and wear your shirt backwards for a whole entire day, you’re a good person.  A worthy person.  YOU are so, so worth it.  What’s it? 

“It” is love.

“It” is happiness.

“It” is your favorite food.

“It” is sharp white cheddar, buttery movie popcorn, Twizzlers, and sprinkled donuts (see above).

“It” is other peoples’ time.

“It” is your own time.

“It” is an outfit that makes you feel hotter than [insert your favorite sexy celeb here].

“It” is living healthy life, whatever healthy means to you.

“It” is forgiveness, from yourself and others.

“It” is an apology. Your apology is worth it, and valuable, and often needed.

“It” is Essie nail polish.

“It” is that expensive gym membership, because group fitness classes are amazing.

“It” is good sex, without using a blanket to cover your stomach.

“It” is selfies.

“It” is eating out.  Like, actually eating out, at a restaurant.  I don’t mean that as a euphemism.  Although, you’re worth that, too.

“It” is an education, whether you have to pay for it, or you rely on trusty ol’ library books.

“It” is your own opinions, about anything and everything.

“It” is a new tube of mascara, because old mascara will infect your eyes and they’ll disintegrate and fall out of your head.

“It” is shoes.  All of the shoes.

“It” is a raise.

“It” is the fancy plastic tampons, not the horrible cardboard ones that make your vagina feel like death.

“It” is fuzzy socks.

“It” is FUN.

“It” is happy hour, even if you have to forgo the gym or some studying or sleep.

“It” is a massage.

“It” is a good – no, a great – no, a FABULOUS – life.

  3. Cardboard tampons don’t do that to my vagina. Just sayin’.

    Love you. You’re “it.”
