MORE than enough.
Your strength is yours, and yours alone.
Some people see crying as a weakness and others see it as strength.
Some people hear strength and only think of physical strength.
Some people think walking away from a fight is weak, but others think it’s another method of standing up for yourself.
At the end of the day, your strength is how you define it.
If you don’t like how you feel, if you feel weak, then work at what will make you feel stronger.
You’ve got this!
This one comes from Passion Planner’s Instagram, and one of their mottos is “Just Start” meaning that any tiny step you take toward your goal is worth it.
That being said, I think you get points for thinking about your plan, because you’ve got to have something in your head before you can write it down, right?
The important part is having a plan.
You know that saying, “why put off til tomorrow what you can do today?”
I used to fire back with “why do today what I can put off until tomorrow?” and sometimes I still stand by that – for example, I work in corporate America, and generally any work done after 5 may as well be done at 9 the next morning. If nobody else is online to receive the work, there’s no reason for my to lose sleep completing something at 3 in the morning.
But on the other hand, you can push something off until tomorrow forever. That’s how books don’t get written, songs don’t get recorded, exercise plans don’t get started, etc. because we keep planning to do things tomorrow.
That being said, if your heart isn’t in it, I wouldn’t push yourself to do it today. If you’re feeling sick or drowsy, don’t force yourself through a cardio class. Do an at home yoga video.
Do it when you’re inspired. If the inspiration lasts ten seconds and then you think of a show you want to watch on Netflix, go back to the inspiration. Maybe you planned to run for 45 mins but instead you’re going to walk for 15. That’s totally fine! Netflix can be your reward 🙂
Falling off the wagon of your plan is perfectly okay! You don’t have to start over when you miss a day, just pick up where you left off. The plan does not have to be perfect and neither does the execution.
What is weighing you down or holding you back?
Is there something or someone that is causing you more harm than good?
What would your life look like without that person or thing?
You deserve the love you keep trying to give to others.
Think of that person you are always there for. The one you drop anything for regardless of what you have going on. The one who’s health and well-being is more important to you than your own.
Now imagine loving yourself that much.
Be that in tune with your own needs.
If you’re sick, exhausted, burnt out, depressed, or angry, you’re not going to be able to keep helping others.
Take care of yourself 💕
Remember, doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.
What’s the worst that can happen if your dream never comes true?
Things would likely stay the same, right?
Maybe the fear is fear of the change that success will bring. Of changing your life, disrupting your routine, giving you a new normal.
What if you fly?
At the beginning of this week I asked whether our inner emotions are reflected in our outer appearance.
What if we decided to do that going forward? Could that change our mood?
Let’s try it.
Check in when you wake up: how do I feel? How do I want to feel?
What can you do to change how you feel into how you want to feel?
If you’re tired, grab some coffee or try energizing aromatherapy, don’t settle for looking exhausted!
If you’re sad, put on some music that makes you smile, or even feel like dancing, don’t accept carrying a frown through your day.
Do your feet hurt? Put on some comfortable shoes!
Do you want to feel sexy? Pick an outfit that makes you feel sexy!
Let me know how it goes 🙂
