Our minds create the reality we live in. If you ever find yourself in a place of hopelessness, remember these words from nutrition Expert Haley Goodrich on why you are deserving of goodness and positivity in your life.
Life doesn’t happen to you. Life happens for you. The mindset that you allow yourself to have is how you will make your goals and desires happen for you. And that mindset is about changing what your story means to you, and knowing what stories are true for you.
Don’t let someone else’s story OR a story you have created in your mind be what you believe.
“I have always hated my body and I always will.”
“I do not have enough money to start my dream business.”
“Taking care of myself last is what I have to do.”
“I am too busy to work on becoming healthier.”
“I will be a better person when I am a size X.”
Not one of these stories is true. Recognize the story you may be believing that is holding you back. You are absolutely deserving of all your dreams and aspirations, but you have to show up and be good to yourself every single day.
If it feels good to take a selfie, DO it.
If you love your outfit, SHOW it.
If you are proud of yourself or someone else, TELL it.
If you desire a warm chocolate chip cookie, EAT it.
Doing what feels good is how we attract more good. How often do we live by certain rules because it is what we think we should do…instead of what we want to do?
Show up today and rewrite your story, because there is a wonderful one to be written.
