Deep thoughts from the coffee shop today 💕
We never know what anyone’s going through, so why not be kind and lift them up? Think how you would want someone to treat YOU while YOU were at a low point, and act accordingly.
And yes, it is that easy. Kindness is easy, free, and infinite.
If you aren’t willing to do what it takes to be YOUR best self, you waive the right to be envious of anyone being THEIR best self.
We all get the same 24 hours in a day. We all have obstacles. We all have to work for it.
Show up, put in the work!
You wanna know why I’m excited about some of the program announcements we saw at Summit?
Because they’ve got shorter workouts (20 minutes!) for those who don’t want to/can’t work out for an hour a day.
They’ve got programs with 4 workout days and 3 rest days for those who aren’t down with 6 workouts a week (or those looking to supplement a running schedule – like me!)
The beauty is in having something for everyone!
I am thankful for that!
Who’s looking for a slower pace for summer? My next program begins 16July – you joining me?! You can request a FREE account here and request access to my private Accountability Success Group here and we can do big things, TOGETHER!
Follow the path of love. We live in a world where often, we hear more about the ugly than we do the beautiful.
But the beauty is there. Love, respect, compassion, empathy… all of these are hallmarks of a better world.
Lead by example!
What will you do to better the world today; to make the beauty stand out?
There is no ignoring that the world contains a lot of negativity – I ain’t about pretending the world is sunshine and roses, sorry. It has a dark side.
But it has a bright side! It has bright lights, souls set out to lift one another. Be the brightness. Let’s tip the scales back into the favor of positivity, love, empowerment and acceptance.
Be the brightness.
I was chatting with a friend recently, and we were keepin’ it real (what, don’t judge – life is challenging sometimes, and being able to discuss things in a productive manner can be helpful!), and talking about feeling discouraged and overwhelmed. Both of these feelings can happen to anyone, and are valid feelings.
What’s important, is not to let them rule you. Some people prefer to sweep these things under the rug (I’m not trying to judge you, but in my experience, they tend to creep their way out eventually…), whereas I have been trying to let myself feel, and let myself heal.
This handy acronym is neat – and a nice reminder that like rainstorms, whatever emotions are crippling you will pass.
Do you speak kindly to yourself? Do you uplift, inspire, empower and encourage yourself with the words you use?
Some people — myself included — are so very quick to offer kind words to others, but when it comes to speaking to OURSELVES, we don’t get the same kind consideration.
Why is that? I have been working on this, and it is a battle, honestly. But I know I am worthy of kind words. I know the words I say to myself are the most powerful ones of all.
Are you using your words wisely?
SELF. LOVE. SATURDAY. Speak kindly to yourself!
Being that I am on vacation this week, and focused on enjoying my time with my family, I am keeping this week’s nlog posts light (but I could never go a week without connecting with you guys!)
One of my favorite quotes of all time. If you don’t love it, time to change that so you do! 🙂
