Today is a little bit of a longer read, but worth it. So go grab a coffee, relax, shut the office door, lock yourself in a bathroom if you have to, and read this right to the very end, and be sure to forward to your friends and family too!
I put together 40 things I only wish I had known before I turned the big 40! I hope that it serves you, or someone you love well today.
1. A better body will never make you truly happy or more successful in life, but know that if you focus solely on your body it is a sure way to failure. That being said, if you don’t honour that temple of yours, you will never reach your maximum potential in life or live long enough to fulfill your true life’s purpose. While abs are nice to have, your kids don’t need you to have abs, they need you to be alive, happy, healthy, and living your life on purpose.
2. You will never have external worth, riches or...
You are powerful, you are amazing, and you are so worthy and capable of success!
We all know those people who "talk the talk" but when it comes down to "walking the walk", and doing what they said they were going to do, they are nowhere to be found.
And oddly enough, those kinds of people do a beautiful job of telling YOU how you should be living your life.
You know who I’m talking about...
The employee who has been in an organization or a dead end job for way too long and is waiting to retire. She is the one who always complains about the hours, the pay, the government, the commute, and constantly gossips about her boss and coworkers behind their backs.
The relative or friend who is super nice to everyone’s face, then talks about everyone behind their back once they are out of the room. Often starting each conversation with “don’t tell anyone I told you this but...”
Have you ever lost a friend? I did.. this week, and it really hurt my feelings.. Then I blessed and released.
This is me. Saggy loose skin. Deflated boobs. I never shared THIS piece of my story, or plastered in on social media. Maybe I should have. I didn’t because I was shameful of it. WHO ARE YOU to inspire women without a 6 pack? As hard as I tried... I just could love this loose skin and saggy mom boobs.
Nope. I don’t care what ANYONE tries to convince me of of social media...I didn’t love it, so I saved all my pennies and knew I’d get it fixed when I was done having my kids.
WELL.. I had met someone. She too had lost a lot of weight, and she messaged me once saying OMG, you just had my DREAM surgery. A total mommy makeover.
If you just walked in on this chapter, back in December, I had 1 pound of loose skin removed and had my boobs brought up past my belly button.
This week I went to message her and she was GONE. I was...
