Get your mind right Quote for MONDAY: 

Lately, I have been struggling with my body image and feeling a bit down about the way I look to myself and they way I think I look to the outside world.

Once upon a time, I was fit and fabulous.  I worked out every day no matter what; and it helped that I worked at the gym, and the majority of my friends were personal trainers.

But once I decided to move on with my life to a whole new city and completely changed my career path I was no longer taking time to take care of my body. I was no longer active like I was before and so I began to gain weight (of course) and I am still becoming more familiar and comfortable with my new curves. So with that being said; today instead of a quote I am reminded every time I here this poem that I am a PHENOMENAL WOMAN, and it helps me to stay positive in my new journey of discovering my new self.

Phenomenal Woman, by Maya Angelou

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
‘Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Get your mind right Quote for MONDAY: 

Do what you Love

 

 

This quote is so simple, yet so powerful.

If you love what you do your mindset will be in a great place without you having to stop and redirect your thoughts and feelings. Love is such a powerful feeling that cultivates positivity in your life, whether you know it or not. As long as you take time out of your day to do things that you love or start focusing on the things that you love most, you will start to see positive change in your mindset and life.

Today, I challenge you to sit down and think about what you love. Can you do the things that you love every day? Can you turn what you love into a career? What are the things that you love most in life?

Get your mind right Quote for MONDAY:

“If you want light to come into your life, you need to stand where it is shining.” 

Guy Finley

When I read this quote it reminds me of how grateful and thankful I am for where I am today.

Not so long ago, maybe about 3 years ago I was in the “dark” mentally and physically. I was surrounding myself with individuals that I allowed to take my “light” and my spirit unknowingly. You would think that someone who feels very strongly about the power of positive thinking could never let others take so much from you.

I don’t even know where to begin sharing my story, but for the sake of not boring you all I will get to the meat and potatoes of it all. I let people in to my life and circle that I thought were like minded people, in the beginning everything was “okay”.  It took me a while to notice that these particular people that I was spending a lot of time with were always negative and speaking poorly of other all of the time, but in the same breath claiming to be positive people. And as they became more miserable in their lives I could feel myself getting sucked in to their issues. At the same time my best friend was going through a difficult situation so I was dealing with her on a daily basis. Before I knew it, I could not shake the funk. There would be days that I could not get out of bed just because I was not ready to face the day, and days that I could not get myself to focus enough to get any work done. All I was doing was thinking negative and in doing so all I was receiving was more negativity in my life, in business and in relationships.

Finally over a year in to this, yes OVER A YEAR! I finally got so sick and tired of being in such a negative place that I sat down and talk with my husband about everything that was going on. And he reminded me that you become the people you surround yourself with the most. So I took a step back from everything and everyone and re-evaluated my life. I stopped hanging out with my so called “friends” who were supposed to be like minded and started getting back to my happy place. Once I removed all of the negative people from my life, everything started to change it was the most amazing thing I could have ever done.

If you want “light to come into your life”, surround yourself with people who truly live in the “light”. Be mindful of who you surround yourself with.

I challenge you on this beautiful Monday to find your LIGHT and shine 🙂
