Happy MONDAY! TGIM!
QUOTE OF THE DAY: If you’re always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.
— MAYA ANGELOU
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Let’s face it. Sometimes I think I’m a little crazy. I enjoy waking up early in the morning, doing a little meditation and praying, and then going to work out. I am a dreamer. I am a creative type. I enjoy doing half marathons and running and doing triathlons, and Spartans races and burpees. Actually, those are normal things for me to do. But more than that I am a one of a kind
I am unique just like you are unique in your own way. I am amazing just like you are in your own amazing way. However, I have unique dreams and visions and goals that are not yours. You are unique. You are special and you are amazing.
I like to listen to electronic dance music or a podcast in my car on the way to work. I like to create and write blogs.
When I think about this quote, it makes me wonder and think about how being myself is great. I was created with unique fingerprints like no one else on this planet earth. I was shaped and formed me to have a certain way of thinking and certain tendencies. And I believe I was created to have a purpose.
Don’t be normal. Be uniquely you. Be uniquely you and shine your unique light. Be the light in the darkness this week.
Strike up a conversation with a stranger. Give some money to the poor. Live outside your comfort zones. Ask for things you think are silly. Ask for help. Be assertive. Ask for things that you think are audacious. Read a good book. Feed your mind positive and motivational things. Hire a coach to help you out. Go to a therapist if you need that kind of help. Be thankful. Join a challenge. Challenge your friends to do a race. Call a friend. Call your family. Tell them you love them. Life is short. Don’t waste it. I will end with another quote that I thought was good this week.
You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress, simultaneously.”
~ Sophia Bush
