Wisdom Wednesday: “Denny”

5

October 17, 2012 by Darlene McC

It’s a fortunate thing to be surrounded by smart, fun, beautiful women who don’t buy into the hype spewed by fashion mags disguised as “health” rags.  We’ll refer to one such woman by the nickname we coined the first time I met her: Denny.  Last night I got to sit down with Denny and talk about the amazing challenges she’s had this year – and her ultimate new goal:

I want to play my body like a finely tuned instrument.

Cast aside were the self-depreciating ideas of ideal weights or thigh measurements and embraced was the idea of living as fully as you can in the body you’ve been given.  Thank you Denny for letting me share this little nugget with the other Amazons – you inspire me more often than you know.  I’ll immortalize this in a meme as soon as I have enough time to turn on my computer at home. Promise.

Little sister, all grown up. How blessed am I to have been a part of your perfect day. To get to share in your joy, and thereby multiply it with everyone else who came to celebrate. . Stunning 📸 by @stephanie.mccauley . 20 years ago our parents met. But I think our 5 siblings are the ones who really made out on this deal. . . #love #positiveemotionproject #bride #bridesmaid #fallwedding #bonussister #littlesister #perfectday #sisters
We're so good at making relationships complicated- with others and with ourselves! 🤦‍♀️ But when I peel away the layers of pain, defensiveness, and unhelpful patterns I'm left with 3 truths: 1️⃣ We're all human (I think👽) 2️⃣ We all have something to contribute. Unique combinations of skills and interests. Our passions and what we care about. They lead us to contributions that no one can make. And your world needs to what YOU can bring into it. 3️⃣ We all make mistakes - you. Me. Your boss. Your parents. Your kids. @msrachelhollis & @tonyrobbins . everybody. When you accept that you can forgive yourself and others for their human-ness. No one comes out perfect. We're all a work in progress. If you can accept this you can stop expecting perfection from yourself and others. Do these 3 ring true for you? Which of them do you struggle to accept and live? #growandchange #growthmindset #coaching #coachmentality #selfdevelopment #human #humanrace #acceptance #acceptyourself #weallmakemistakes
