JES' TEN COMMANDMENTS OF SELF-LOVE

1. Accept yourself for who you are at this very moment. Appreciate the BEAUTY that makes you YOU:)

2. Be thankful for your blessings. You may not have everything you want but, you have ALL you need.

3. Make sure your worst enemy isn't dwelling in your own skin. Remember that you're always listening even if no one else can hear you!

4. Vow to take care of your body & work out daily! After all, it's the only place you have to live! Make it a happier, healthier place to reside in. YOU are your best investment.

5. Stay true to who you are & you will ALWAYS be happy! Gather all your crazy dreams, far fetched ambitions & big goals & build a life you love & are proud of!

6. Stop comparing yourself to who you're not! Girls compete with one another. Women EMPOWER each other.

7. Forgive yourself for every mistake, every heartbreak & every time you've fallen short. Self-forgiveness is a necessary & vital step to finding your inner peace.

8. Remember that you can't fix yourself by BREAKING someone else. ALWAYS choose kindness.

9. Focus your thoughts on what is good, what is admirable & what is positive. Never let your mind become consumed by negativity & hate. Never let your heart turn cold.

10. Say YES to adventure. Say YES to bliss. Say YES to the impossible. You never know when your heart will stop beating. Take the jump & free fall on the way down if you have to. Live with no regrets.

Don't blame anyone or anything for the situation you're in or the problems you've encountered along this journey through life. When you choose to blame other people or outside factors, you are saying that you're POWERLESS over your own life, which is complete & utter crap - - The first empowering step to reclaiming your happiness, your self worth & your life is admitting to the fact that everything that brought you to this point was solely your responsibility. That is true power, that is true strength!

MY MANTRA:)

I didn't HAVE the time
I MADE the time.

I didn't have ALL the knowledge
So, I did what I KNEW.

Not everyone SUPPORTED me
So, I learned to support MYSELF.

I wasn't the most CONFIDENT person
But, my confidence came with RESULTS.

I have A LOT going against me
But, I have ENOUGH going for me.

I had PLENTY of excuses
But, I CHOOSE not to use ANY of them.

YOUR body is a work of ART!!! It IS the vehicle for your SOUL!!!
It is as BEAUTIFUL today as it was yesterday & as it WILL be tomorrow! Choose to love YOURSELF at EVERY size!!!

Energy is CONTAGIOUS,
Both Positive & Negative Alike.
Always be Mindful of WHO & WHAT
You Allow in Your Space
For It is a DIRECT Reflection of YOU!!!

It will hurt.

You will need to make healthy decisions.

You will need to push your body to it's max.
There will be temptation.

Personal Information:
I'm Jes:)

I've lost 60lbs to date with the help of S.P! This site & the people on it are AMAZING!!

I'm a stay at home mom & homemaker aka I am the luckiest!!!

I love my man, Al & my little man, Maddox, more than words can express!

I am open minded, free spirited & a hopeless romantic to the core!

I believe in happiness & support equality & the right to choose a life that results in happiness!

I am an Iowa girl, born & raised! I love my Midwest roots & the killer work ethic this lovely state has helped to instill in me!

I love, love, LOVE my life & am working on making it even better!

Lifting weights, doing yoga & writing are the equivalent of therapy for me!

I am OBSESSED with beautiful words & untouched places.

I'm a thrift store goddess, a rummage sale junkie & a 24/7 bargain sale hunter!

I'm just me & I'm pretty darn good at it:)

Other Information:
I intend to accept my body today, love my body tomorrow & appreciate my body always.

When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you'll be successful!

If it's important to you, you'll find a way - - If not, you'll find an excuse.

You are far too smart to be the ONLY thing standing in your way.

Stop wearing your wishbone where your backbone ought to be.

Destroy what destroys you.

A ship at harbor is safe but that's not what ships are for.

Be an ENCOURAGER; The world has plenty of CRITICS already. - Dave Willis

You ALWAYS have time for the things you put FIRST.

A comfort zone is a beautiful place but NOTHING ever GROWS there.

There is ALWAYS room to be a BETTER person! ALWAYS!!

True Success is liking YOURSELF, liking WHAT you do & liking HOW you do it.

“Dare to Be

When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.

When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.

When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.

When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.

When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.

When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.

When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.

When times are tough, dare to be tougher.

When love hurts you, dare to love again.

When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.

When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.

When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.

When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.

When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.

When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.

Dare to be the best you can –

At all times, Dare to be!”
