Happy Monday! Yes it’s Monday again, shake off the weekend and get the week started right! I had a great weekend, a little laying low a little getting out but overall a good balance of both. I got the chance to hang out in Portland with a friend of mine and had an absolute blast. We had plans to go dancing but decided we would just wing it. There’s something about just going with the flow that just works out so well. I also got to experience a new McMenamins and enjoyed some good conversation about the Russian language and life in general. The great thing about this weekend was that I realized something about myself that I think I forgot about along the way…I am SPECTACULAR and so are you 🙂
I think sometimes we get so caught up in the everyday, mundane aspects of life, you know cooking, cleaning, going to work, raising kids ect. that we forget how truly spectacular we are as people. When you peel everything else away and you just have yourself to look at I think it’s easy to come up short. We are so used to getting feedback from other people about what they think about us, that we don’t always take the time to give feed back on ourselves. It’s very important to be able to look at yourself and say “I am spectacular because…” and I don’t mean any of those outside factors that make you, you. Peel away the fact that you may be someone’s spouse, or a parent or a great worker or what ever other outside factor plays a role in creating you. When we were born we didn’t have anything else going for us but us. That’s the person you need to look at and feel great about. The person you are without other people’s judgments or opinions.
This weekend was eye opening for me because I got to remember that yes I’m pretty fricking SPECTACULAR! I am an attractive, intelligent, engaging woman that people feel comfortable just being themselves around. I missed that me and I’m glad I found her again. I am more than the sum of my laundry + cartoons and all things kids lol! Anyway if you haven’t already, go find that amazingly, spectacular you! And hold on tight to that person cause in the end that’s who we truly are.
Go make the day great!! Hope the sun is shining for you!
