I want to make other people feel empowered and encouraged. Making people feel anything other than that should not be tolerated. When your in any position of leadership (big or small) you must recognize the power your words and actions have. Voice your positive thoughts! They make a difference. ✨
I’m not sure who’s quote this is, so if you know, tell me and I’ll give all of the credit! I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. The past month I’ve been focusing on things that help nourish me and help me grow and be more confident. And anything that doesn’t help fuel that, I’m getting rid of it. Today I have approximately a million things to do and I’m currently trying to figure out how to do them all. I think today I’m going to clean my car, head to the gym, then maybe to get my nails done, and then I’m getting lash extensions! I’m so exited!
Let’s be real, the hardest part is the be patient part. I have such a hard time not weighing myself every single day. I haven’t weighed myself since last Saturday but I think I’ll do another weigh in this Saturday morning. Fingers crossed!
I’ve learned recently that it is perfectly okay to spend time and money on taking care of myself. You can’t pour from an empty cup, and my life was starting manifest that and my relationships were being affected and I didn’t even realize it. I’m going to start spoiling myself once in awhile.
Here’s to us! Here’s to ordering a salad when you really want to burger. Here’s to making an ass out of yourself in a hip-hop class. To drinking more water than seems humanly possible. To going five more minutes on the elliptical. To just saying screw you to the old you. To falling in love with the you who you want to become. To looking in the mirror and not seeing change, throwing on your sneakers and working out anyway. To looking in the mirror and seeing major change. Here’s to carrots and shin splints, sweaty T-shirts and perseverance and sore muscles, and stinky socks, and 6 AM, and spin class, and falling down and getting back up, and bottled water. Here’s to getting up every day and doing it all over again.
Here’s to all the #megababes that inspire me everyday, irl and on IG 💪🏼😃💕
