The wonderful power of “yes”

The movie I am about to share is called “Yes man” with Jim Carrey. Yes, it is a comedy.

How funny is that that I usually don’t watch comedies, especially American comedies, because as a foreigner many times I found myself frustrated not knowing what they are joking about or simply not understanding this type of humor. However, as part of the Valentine’s Day promise to myself that I want to spend it with a free spirit, totally joyful and playful, we decided to watch this comedy.

The movie was funny and powerful at the same time. I am not going to elaborate on the story or jokes. I would love to, however, bring attention to the lessons and conclusions I took from it and I found very magical. I want to deliver them to you so they can empower you as they did for me!

 

How does saying ‘no’ play a role in our life?

We say ‘no’ to the friend’s wedding invitations, we say ‘no’ to the stranger on the street needing help, we say ‘no’, I don’t have time, to the spouse or kids, we say ‘no’ to ourselves a million times a day. Am I wrong? If yes, please comment below and call me out on that! I’ll take it!

 

How does saying ‘yes’ to the opportunities in your life play a role for you?

I bet, there are many opportunities in your life such changing the job, quitting smoking, deciding on healthier food choices, breaking up with the toxic relationship, publishing a book, opening a business you dream about, saying ‘I love you”, or becoming a happier and funnier person. How many of those have you literally overlooked, or intentionally missed, or simply said ‘no’ to?

Again, I am 100% confident, that you did, and most likely to many of those. They showed up in your life, your intuition told you to go for it, and your fearful mindset just blew the chance out! How do you feel about it? Fulfilled? Happy? Empowered? Or maybe like a loser? Or hopeless?

 

That movie showed with simple life stories what is the life of constant ‘no’ to the living versus a life with ‘yes’ to the opportunities. And, at the same time as in the movie, there is a limit of saying ‘no’ or ‘yes’ to the situations or people. We are constantly reminded of the fact that we need to learn how to say ’no’ to so many things, events, and people in order to protect our time, energy and boundaries. However, we are never told that the word ‘yes’ is as powerful as it can be in its own meaning.

 

The moment you say ‘yes’ to the opportunity, it is like putting the key in the lock and twisting it. Suddenly the door squeak and release showing you just a little hole to peak through it. That little space to look through gives you the image of a totally different view, just like in The Secret Garden movie.

Don’t you want to go there and explore? Aren’t you curious what your life might bring once you give it a chance?

I can’t express more how exciting it is to say ‘yes’ to the opportunity, which may seem super scary at first, but how wonderfully inviting it is to the eyes of those who commit.

Don’t be a loser! Don’t give up on your dreams.

Don’t regret that you didn’t say ‘yes’ to the possibilities which your life presented you today!!!

 

You got this beYOUtiful! ❤

The letter to my body

Dear Body,

I want to start with telling you how sorry I am for who I was to you throughout last 36 years of our life.

I am sorry for seeing you as a shame, not wanting to even look at you in the mirror.

I am sorry for seeing you as fat after giving you only a little salad or stuffing you with only coffee the whole day.

I am sorry for expecting you to not be swollen, itchy or yellow-skinned after feeding you with sugar loaded crap and processed food.

I am sorry for always wanting to exchange you for something better than you were.

I am sorry for putting you through the pain of constant starvation, dieting, and purging.

I am sorry for not recognizing how amazingly you worked for me every single day without any injuries and major health issues.

I am sorry for not being content with you even after the super heavy workout routine, which didn’t leave you happy at all.

I am sorry for being disgusted by you.

I am sorry for hurting you physically.

I am sorry for using you in ways I feel ashamed of now.

I am sorry for feeling only negative emotions towards you.

I am sorry for always seeing other bodies better than you.

I am sorry for crying as soon as I saw you naked, not happy about what I saw.

I am sorry that I made myself so unhappy in you.

I am sorry for hurting you so deeply despite the love you gave me since I was born.

I am sorry…

and these apologies are the hardest I have ever expressed.

 

However, the appreciation I have today for you is unlimited.

The promise I have for you today is going to change everything.

I always wanted to be loved! You loved me unconditionally all the time.

I never did.

 

The promise is that….

I love you and will always do!!!!

The love letter to myself

A few months ago, I wrote a letter. The love letter from my Future Self to my Recent Self.

The Future Self who is empowered, in alignment and in peace with herself, decided to give some words of encouragement to the woman standing here and writing to you right now. The letter is very open, vulnerable and authentic. Just the way I wanted to be to read it now, and every day.

My desire for you is that this letter will shift some energy within you so you can see your own beauty, worth and true identity under the mask you are wearing. My intention for you is that the letter below will encourage you to write the one for yourself. Don’t overthink or analyze it, just after you finish reading, grab a pen and write some words to yourself. Be loving, kind and non-judgmental.

My wish for you is that you see how beYOUtiful and worthy you are!

Because you are!!!

 

Dear Izabela,

WOW, what a journey, what a life changer!!!! I am so incredibly proud of you for making the step to create a new chapter in your life. I remember the hope and help you were looking for, and how finding that was totally price-independent. I knew that day that this is it, and I was so right!! Thank you, Universe, for giving me that opportunity at just the right time in my life and for not allowing my self-destructive doubts, hesitations and sabotaging creep in and prevent me from doing it!!!! I finally invested in my own self!!!!

I am so happy today! The real, raw, pure, and deep happiness inside of me! The happiness I was craving all 36 years!

I am confident! With my inner self, with my inner voice and thoughts, with my body, every single part of my body. I am confident with myself by myself when it’s quiet and it’s only me, my reflections, my inner voice, my inner child and my inner women!

I am emotionally stable. I am comfortable with my fears and my pains. I recognize them, I let them be and let them teach me.

For the first time, I am confident and proud to be a woman. I feel finally sexy, hot, attractive, comfortable naked and even seductive in a very feminine way!!! OMG, how much I wanted to be that woman!!!!

I am free of that messed up bulimia and binge eating!!! I AM FREE….it makes me feel so light knowing that I do not violent and hate my body anymore.

I AM FREE OF SELF-HATE – I am free forever! Those hateful moments towards myself are gone! How could I possibly do that to myself? That was so scary, so hurting, so painful – and it is GONE!!!!! I am love. I am a vessel of pure love. I do love. I share the love. I treat myself with love.

I am free of anxiety and depression – because I am finally feeling present, aligned with myself, truly aligned with my core values, inner voice and instincts. Finally, I am able to silent my mind and listen to the voice inside, to the Universe.

I am grateful! I see opportunities and beautiful gifts every minute, each day of my life!

I am finally moving with the flow, in every area of my life. I understood how huge resistance I was creating around me and I worked that out!!! I allowed myself to grow, to flourish, to expand and to create amazing things I always dreamt about! Now I am ready to live fully, and change lives around me!

I am a positive person with a positive energy radiating from me. The energy which changes lives, which allows me to see every single event, moment, and person in my life as the best thing that could ever happen to me!

I allow the energy to propel me to create huge things in all areas of my life. I live my life creating only positive energy around and within me.

I am empowered! I am driven! I am strong! I am truly and deeply that person, feeling unstoppable, limitless and fearless not only in the business, fitness, life but most importantly, mentally and emotionally!

I am giving myself NOW the acceptance of myself the way I am; of not being perfect; of not being in full control. I am forgiving myself for mistakes and imperfections. I am relaxed and enjoying life the way it is given to me! Now I learn from every single experience and mistake. I truly see failures as great lessons.

I am happy for the first time that I am alive. I can celebrate now my birthdays ❤

I BELIEVE IN MYSELF!! THAT IS HUGE!!!! Finally, Izabela you see yourself as amazing, powerful, strong, persistent, successful, limitless, life-changing, balanced, aligned, peaceful, confident and sexy woman.

I am free of past, free of abusive past and voices, which were limiting my beautiful soul, heart and mind from growing, creating, being, loving! I am so extremely happy I am free of that past! Now I can live, I can see myself flourishing and being nurturing to my body, soul, mindset, heart and my wonderful dreams and visions. Now I can be fearless and doubt-less and calmly and confidently look forward to my future. Because finally, I learned that I am a creator of my life!!!

I am at peace with my past, too! I forgave those who hurt me! I forgave myself for being so hurtful, too! I finally know how to forgive! I am grateful for this gift to learn! It is totally life changing!

I am free of the fear of rejection and judgment! I understand that I am me. I always knew that I want to be myself, true, authentic, raw, and real – and now I know I will be real! Free of fear of rejection! Because I am beautiful and I am loved!!!! I always was attracted to honesty and authenticity – that was always one of my drives, my internal voice ❤

I love myself! I respect myself! I never thought I will embrace and understand that aspect! How mistaken was I! I can carry entire world on my shoulders now based on that energy coming from self-love and self-acceptance within me!

I am so looking forward to empowering others, to help other girls and ladies within my beYOUtiful coaching services. I am so excited about publishing my autobiography, self-help books, and cookbooks! I am ready to spread the love. I am open to creative opportunities for getting and earning more money.

I AM A BLESSING! I AM UNIQUE! I AM SPECIAL! I AM ONE IN BILLIONS! I AM A DREAM! I create amazing things in my life with no self-doubts, no self-hesitation, and no fear!!!! There is no fear, just LOVE!

My dreams are coming true!!! They do because I was my own dream which just came true!!! Creating Izabela ❤
