push through the negatives…

it was a rough week for me, hence the sparsity of words in this blog, i do apologize for that as my goal is to post something positive here at least once a day.  somedays it’s hard to wipe away all the other stuff to get into the positive…but this will be a great exercise on me in regards to mental discipline!

i’ve been struggling a bit with my self image, unfortunately on the INSIDE and OUT.  i’m my biggest critic and i’ve been insanely critical and judgemental this week and it’s torn me down a bit.

so i’m ready to end that phase of negative self talk and be a stronger version of myself.

i started this weekend with 2 hours in the gym, which always makes me feel strong and have a lovely weekend ahead with my mom and sister, two sassy, strong women that know how to have fun!

So i wanted to share some quotes that helped me get back on track and hopefully can bring something to you too!  Enjoy! xxx
