I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, filled with family, friends, and of course some yummy food. Back to reality, right? Let’s discuss what your reality is for a moment. If you’re like me, you keep yourself busy and on the go with work and taking care of others, and then finding time to fit in taking care of yourself. Part of taking care of yourself is something we, especially women, do not do though – positive self talk and encouragement. I would bet that most of you reading this probably don’t encourage yourself or talk to yourself in a positive way each and every day. It may sound silly, but the power of saying positive things is really incredible. Two of the most powerful words that I want you to start with are… “I am…”. I want you to think about what you are, in a way that will empower you and encourage you to do more each and every day to live your life to its fullest and be the best you.
Whether you write these words every day, or wake up and say them to yourself in the mirror as you start your day, make them a part of your daily routine. Encourage yourself. Define yourself. Allow yourself to be what it is you want to be.
The last time I posted, I shared that I had converted one of my well-known cakes into a gluten-free version of the same (but not paleo, mind you). Well, everyone loved it. Everyone agreed it was even better than the original! We haven’t really tried any new and fabulous recipes in the past few days, so I don’t have any recipes to share today. More than anything it was on my heart to share about the power of words. I hope you have an amazing rest of the week! Start your positive self talk when you wake up tomorrow morning, and see how much better of a day you will have!
