Taking Charge and Being Your #OwnBestFriend
It's easy to feel overwhelmed by all of your responsibilities and the seemingly endless list of "to-do's". BUT, it doesn't have to stay this way! There are so many paths to creating the life you want, connecting to purpose and passion, and being happy. Here's one of my favorite inspirational readings (emphasis mine):
"When we choose to face challenges with focus and determination, we build confidence and learn how to be proactive in the face of adversity. Many of us tend to shy away from challenges because we feel unsure of our own ability to overcome them. If we can understand that most of our limitations exist in our minds, we can choose to believe that we have what it takes to overcome them. With each obstacle that we overcome, our confidence and courage grows. The next challenges that come along then become less daunting. Eventually, we realize that we are no longer intimidated by challenges because we have developed a strong inner core that refuses to be held back by fear. By tapping into your inner strength and empowering yourself with an attitude of conscious determination today, you can overcome challenges with confidence."
