Strength

We're ready to take you on, 2018!!!


Here are my positive thoughts and wishes for this brand spankin' new year...

You are stronger than you give yourself credit for. There have been rough times when you didn’t know how you’d ever survive, but you did. Somehow, someway, you managed to reach way down deep and push yourself through.

Use that motivation in other areas of your life. If there’s something you’ve been wanting to do but keep putting off—Do It! Set attainable, realistic goals and make the time for them.

Believe me, I know there's never enough time to get everything done. (I swear someone keeps pushing the hour hand on the clock forward!) You just have to find some way to make the time. Set priorities. Spend a little less time on Facebook and/or Pinterest (yes, I know it’s difficult) and focus on what you want to accomplish. Get rid of the “time suckers” in your life and spend that time doing what you want to do. Whether it be exercising, making crafts or trying out that new recipe (you found on Pinterest!) you’ve been dying to try. 

You might be surprised at how good it feels to accomplish that one little thing. Hopefully, you can keep at it and that one little thing will turn into six-pack abs, a redecorated house or you becoming a fantastic chef. 

I admit I’m a bit of an “all or nothing” kind of gal, so whenever I screw up it’s super easy for me to consider throwing in the towel altogether. But don’t! Keep going. Keep trudging along and before you know it, you won’t even drag your feet anymore.

Don't worry. If you slip up on your diet and exercise plan (it’s way too easy to do, isn’t it?) just start back up the next day. No matter what, Don’t give up!

Push away all negative thoughts. Every little bit helps :)

I hope you have a healthy and enjoyable new year!
