For #goopbookclub this week, we’re inviting Monica Berg, author of Fear Is Not An Option, to share some words of wisdom & encouragement: As painful and difficult as my struggle with anorexia was, I can credit that time in my life as being an important part of who I am today. In my book Fear is Not an Option, I shared some things I want my daughters to know to live fearlessly, fundamentals such as: your body is part of your expression, never be ashamed of your passions, you are beautiful, and you are your own person. Sadly, I didn’t grow up believing any of those things. But the profound truth is that you have the power to create any life you want through your thoughts. Too often people hold beliefs that they aren’t good enough, smart enough, or worthy of love. Those are the thoughts that have tremendous power over you. It’s not about strength or willpower, it’s about knowing—knowing that you are deserving and worthwhile, simply because you exist. Once you decide that you are worthy, you can live the life you are destined to live. To read the full edit and for more info on Fear Is Not An Option, visit the link in bio.
