Happy New Year Everyone!
It’s hard to believe we are in the beginning of 2014 already! I hope you guys all enjoyed your 2013 Holiday season and are ready to kick ass in 2014, because I sure am!
I wanted to share with you a thought for the new year as we begin January. I was catching up on some “Life Class” and “Super Soul Sunday” episodes on my DVR (they air on OWN) and one particular sentence that Brene Brown said really made me think(if you don’t know who she is, I encourage you to look her up and listen to her TED talk. She’s amazing)
Anyway, she said (among other encouraging and amazing things) “Talk to yourself as you would someone you love.” It’s a simple statement, but if you think about it, how often do we talk to ourselves with way more criticism and attitude than we would someone else? We are often too hard on ourselves, and can beat ourselves up too easily; whereas if it were our loved one we were talking to, we’d probably be a little kinder with our words.
So as you start out the New Year, let’s be a little kinder to ourselves as we get excited for the goals and dreams ahead of us.
Talk to you guys soon!
