Count your daily wins…

Happy MONDAY! TGIM!

QUOTE OF THE DAY: Count your wins! Celebrate the little victories!  


THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

This first thought is paraphrased from a recent post from Rich Roll.

I’ve maintained a fairly positive attitude throughout this global pandemic. 
For good reason — I am very blessed and have a lot to be thankful for. 
But as of late, I find myself struggling.
With the community displaced by screens, my enthusiasm wanes.
Church services are online.  Zoom for Sunday school.  Zoom for my Camp Gladiator classes.  
Even as an introvert, I miss being with people.
I suspect you do as well.
Which brings us to a choice — descend into a darkness or rise to the occasion.
We can’t control the unlimited externalities.
But we can control our response.
So here is my reminder to myself:
Breathe.
Be gentle on yourself and others.
Move your body.
Eat healthy.
Rest.
Let go of expectations.
Accept what is.
Go inward.
Make a list of things to be grateful for.
And tell your loved ones how you feel.

Additionally, I recently watched a video message that asked us to count the wins in our life.  I don’t know if I have mentioned that on here or not.  Count your little victories.  It feels applicable.  Anything can be a win right?  I woke up and got a workout in. WIN!  I helped out people at work.  WIN!  I ate some healthy foods.  WIN.  

You get the idea right?   So this week let’s as always, be thankful and count our wins and celebrate our little victories!

Reply and let me know what some of your wins are this MONDAY or throughout the week. 

TGIM FANS!  Let’s do this!

From Coach Matt

AFFIRMATIONS OF THE DAY:

You Are a Rock Star!

Happy MONDAY! TGIM!

QUOTE OF THE DAY: YOU ARE A ROCK STAR!! 


THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: There is no one like you.  You are a rock star!  There is no one else who has the same unique fingerprints as you.  There is no one who can put thoughts and ideas together quite like you do.  Own your own uniqueness.  You are special.  The world needs your uniqueness.  You are amazing.  You are wonderfully made.  You are a rock star.  Follow your own internal wisdom and your own internal radar.  Live this day as if it were your last day.  Let’s rock this day.  Did I tell you, you are a rock star today?  Because if I did not then I meant to.  I tried to say it a couple of different ways. I hope you get the idea. 

Happy Monday! TGIM! 

With thanksgiving and gratitude,
From Matt

AFFIRMATIONS OF THE DAY: 

1) God has my back

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Happy MONDAY! TGIM!

QUOTE OF THE DAY: 

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~ Marianne Williamson

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

Life is an adventure – go live it!

Find your purpose and run towards it with all that you have!  Attack the day with vigor and enthusiasm.  Tell yourself you are amazing and you can accomplish amazing things! 

You are a rock star!

Life can be an adventure if you believe in the beauty of your dreams.  Do not give up on those dreams that are inside of you and that you can not stop thinking about.  

Be grateful that you get to live another day.  Today is a great day to be alive.

Now go out there and go after what is yours in the universe.

Your playing small does not serve the world.  

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.  
How are you going to show up in the world today?

Think of one small step you can take today to accomplish your goal or dream.  Go do that one thing today. We only get to live so many tomorrows.  The time will pass in the same way whether you are pursuing something amazing or not.  

Go live today’s adventure that is waiting for you and go become the person you were intended to be. 

Happy Monday!

AFFIRMATIONS OF THE DAY: 

1. I am a unique child of this world.
2. I have as much brightness to offer the world as the next person.
3. I matter and what I have to offer this world also matters

You can’t pour from an empty cup.

Happy MONDAY! TGIM!

QUOTE OF THE DAY: 
You can’t pour from an empty cup. Taking care of myself is important, not selfish and is actually a gift to my loved ones. Taking care of myself means I’ll have the energy and ability to love others better.  ~Shannon Long

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:  I get up in the morning extra early before the family does and have some time for myself. 

I exercise to help me feel better and as an act of self-love.

I used to kind of think this idea was selfish.  Take care of yourself first?  Why would I do that when I have so many other demands and other people who need my attention and love?  I have work to do and I have a family to care for and give attention to.  How could I possibly justify more time to myself? 

Well, think about it.  You can’t pour from an empty cup.  If you don’t have anything left to give you, you really don’t have anything left to give.  I think especially as an introvert I need extra down time.  Extra time to myself to recharge.  I find that doing that daily fills my cup daily and hopefully I can find some extra time on the weekends to unwind a bit.  

I want to show up at work and with my family with love.  I want to show up with energy.  I want to show up with my best self.  Now some days of the week that is not easy because you are tired or something causes your day to be off.  But for the most part, I try to do this.  

What are some of your self-love practices?  Do you believe self-care is important?   

On this Monday be thankful for blessings and take time for yourself.  It doesn’t have to be a lot of time.  Just enough to fill your cup.  Happy Monday!

With thanksgiving and gratitude,

Matt Bryant
