Self-Love

To start your Monday:

Repeat these every time you catch yourself mid-negative self-talk. Your attitude and outlook starts with you.
You are beautiful. You are strong. You are capable. You deserve happiness.

Have a great day!

Worry


We’ve heard it all before, “If you’re going to pray, why worry? If you’re going to worry, why pray?” … “Worrying is a waste of time” … “Let go and let God” … “Don’t worry” …

But how do we actually stop worrying about the things that ail us? 

For those of us that pray, do we not pray for situations to turn in our favor, or the favor of our loved ones? Even if the prayer is “let your will be done” do we not pray that with a silent wish as to what that will is? 

When someone is wrestling with something, telling them not to worry is like telling a terrified person not to be afraid – they’re already afraid. They’re already worrying. 

It makes more sense to me to acknowledge that which worries us, and make a conscious effort to focus on other things. 

What are your thoughts? How do you push the worries away?

Your Unique Story


When you see another’s success, remind yourself that it is not because they are better than you. It’s not because they’re smarter or better looking, or more driven or harder working. 

Their journey is completely separate from yours . They are a different person. They have different challenges, strengths and weaknesses. 

If they seem to be progressing faster than you, it doesn’t matter. You don’t know how close they are to the end of their journey. Focus on yours. 

Let Yourself Feel 


Embrace those emotions! You feel because you’re alive. 

It’s not “wrong” to feel pain, sadness…whatever it is, listen to your body. Let it in, take breaks when you need, and take deep breaths. 

It’s all going to be okay!
