Attention Ladies!!! You have HOMEWORK!!!! –Write down all the things you LOVE about yourself. Also, list out qualities you want to have (whether or not you have them already). This may sound remedial and unnecessary, but it is a great little cerebral exercise to let go of bad (mental) habits and embrace positive attributes. Remember: when you workout, you’re not just creating a better body, you’re creating a persona, a way of life. Any girl who lives on planet earth should do this homework periodically. Realizing our own potential is true GIRL POWER.
Think on this:
”Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves: Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; It’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
