I used to be one of those people that hated waking up every morning.
No amount of sleep, rest or luxurious bedding would make a difference. Even though I love to sleep, I was always blaming my lack of enthusiasm for life on some exterior thing: the job, the insomnia, the anxiety, the depression, the weight, the total lack of energy, motivation and inspiration; the fact that the morning is just an ungodly hour and perky people who want to have full blown convos suck (the last part is still true 🤷🏻♀️). It wasn’t that I was tired or really just wanted to sleep, it’s that I had spent so long hating life and just auto-piloting it, that like every other human, I couldn’t see that I felt the way I felt because of the choices I was making - not because of anyone or anything. #realtalk
I never thought that owning and learning to access my personal power would change [most] of that. I still wake up tired on most days #momlife
, and I still have my good days and bad days like everyone else. But knowing, accepting and forcing myself to remember that I have the power to control my emotions and I get to choose how I feel and whether I want to react or respond- does something to a person in the pursuit of greatness.
It makes you realize that you had a choice all along not to keep drowning in your own unhappiness. It makes you not want to waste one more second being negative, depressed or feeling stuck in a situation you know in your core there’s a way out of. It makes you excited to wake up in the morning and challenge yourself, challenge your fears and limits. It makes you excited to tap into the potential and capabilities you’ve had dormant, hiding behind the past pains, excuses and self-sabotage. It makes you realize that even when there’s 💯 chance of rain ALL DAY #Florida
, you can still choose to feel the warm sun on your skin everywhere you go AND share that light with others.
I guess that’s my way of saying good morning, have an amazing day, and remember, when you challenge yourself you’ll always win! .
Challenge yourself every morning to make it the best day possible and so it shall be.
You are powerful. Own it!
