BE YOUR OWN RESOURCE
Good Saturday all,
I posted a video on our Facebook page (the Diary of 2 Former Fat Girls) about being your own resource. I talked about creating a positivity board and how important it is.
Why create your own positivity? Because if you don’t nobody is going to do it for you. Your journey is just that – YOUR journey. Others may cheer for you at times and sometimes they may recognize your hard work and effort. But what happens between those times? When you head butt a brick wall for days and you feel so down, what are you going to do?
You need to turn to your own positive reinforcement – the words of encouragement and enrichment that you set aside for yourself. Things like “you are strong enough for any task,” and “you are worth any amount of effort so why not give it your all!” “Look how far you have come” and “hang in there, beautiful” are two of my all time favorites. Remember the poster of the kitten hanging from a branch that said hang in there? Find one and hang it up where you will see it. It may be cliché but it is so important to any of us who are trying to make positive changes in our lives.
Make your positivity board and take a picture of it. Show it to me. I’ll work on mine and show it to you. 🙂 We all need positivity as well as support on this journey.
Bye for now,
