Thursday Thoughts – Take ACTION

Your dreams and desires should never die – ever.

Regardless of your age.
Regardless of your past.
Regardless of your current circumstances.

There is still time…

There ALWAYS is. As long as you’re here, there’s still time!

So stop thinking about it and start action towards it!

Thursday Thoughts – Adapt

• ADAPT •

Today was my first workout since Monday. And also today I woke up at 5:44 AM; you know, by 5:44 AM I am practically finished with my workouts, normally. 😩

And while my body needed the two rest days due to being sick and fatigued, I really did not want to go THREE days without moving my body.

So since I was a little pressed for time (because we are verrrrry close to a deadline at work and I don’t want to be going in late), I chose the shortest remaining workout for this week, and I got it done!

Like everyone, I have had to learn to • A D A P T •, but truthfully… life really does become easier once you learn to adapt and •go with the flow•

 

Thursday Thoughts – Growth is Radical

I went to an old former workplace the other day – I started my time there a little over 16 years ago when I was a 20 year old baby, and I haven’t worked there in over 11 years…

I ran into a few of my favorite coworkers, one whom hadn’t seen me in years, and she was just gobsmacked (and gushing, because she’s the sweetest little lady EVER) that I look exactly the same and when I said something sassy, she remarked that I am just the same as I ever was… and it alarmed me a little how quick I was to correct her and say “oh no, I have grown, I have evolved, I am no longer anyone’s doormat, and if the shit this place – customers, contractors and coworkers alike – put me through then were to happen now, there would be a lot more hurt feelings out there courtesy of ME.”

And she was just stunned. And so proud, she got tears in her eyes and she was just so blown away by how I found my voice, my confidence, my self esteem, and my sense of self worth. The two of them were A L W A Y S trying to instill my sense of self worth, they were ALWAYS trying to coax my confidence out of me.

And I don’t mean to sound rude or self righteous, but there were MANY, many years where I just did not stand up for myself; I tolerated mental and emotional abuse, and it was often my coworkers who stood up for me and got hell raisers on their way.

So it’s freakin’ empowering to see how I have grown!

I don’t love that there was a period in my life where I felt it was causing conflict to stand up for myself… but it just means I can look back now and realize how truly far I have come – it inspires me, and I won’t be going back to that shy, meek person who never was sure of her own worth.

Growth is freakin’ radical as eff, feel me?

Thursday Thoughts – You Matter.

Posted it before, posting it again. So many need a reminder 💕

You MATTER, and your FEELINGS matter.

If someone makes you feel like you/your feelings don’t matter, you DON’T need them in your life, regardless of how they are in your life.

YOU are awesome and you deserve to FEEL awesome, and to be surrounded by people who ALSO feel you are awesome.

You should be CELEBRATED, not TOLERATED.

Make no exceptions ✌🏼

 

Thursday Thoughts – Six Ways to Rule The World

Don’t YOU wanna rule the world?

  1. Live your life as if you are famous (because you are gonna be, yeah?!) – be nice to people on the way up! Don’t act jealous, arrogant, condescending, or insecure.
  2. Put – and KEEP – your game face on at work! Stay positive, upbeat, witty, humble, and curious. Don’t use your job as a form of therapy – look UP, not down!
  3. BE YOU – stay true to the values that define you. Holding onto them will help you ride over the tough spots in life, and help you stay authentic on your climb to the top!
  4. Make yourself indispensable at work – take initiative, be helpful, be a hard worker… make it so your coworkers wonder what they would do without you!
  5. It’s not up for debate – it’s okay to stand up for and present contrary ideas, and think outside of the box, but it’s still important to LISTEN to your boss – they got where they are for a reason, and you can learn something from them!
  6. Run TOWARDS change – the most successful women do just this, instead of running FROM change. Do something that takes courage – remember, if it doesn’t work out, it’s not permanent!

Any others to add?
