You have the power…

Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn’t have it in the beginning.

This was said by Mahatma Gandhi.  I read it on my friend’s facebook and it hit me in a good way.  A few years back there were things I thought I couldn’t do and flash forward to now and I’m doing them.

  • I am a mother and wife
  • I live in a beautiful home
  • I run my own business
  • I sew
  • I crochet
  • I color, highlight, and cut people’s hair into a miracle
  • I transform people with makeup
  • I have an amazing supportive family
  • I have friends that love me
  • I am HAPPY everyday

These are all things I thought I couldn’t do or couldn’t have.  Make a list of your accomplishments.  When I do this, it reminds me that I am capable of many things and I shouldn’t let my insecurity or doubt get in my way.  I encourage you guys to think of something you think you “can’t do” and DO IT.  You just might surprise yourself.  If you ever feel a doubt just remind yourself of everything you’ve already accomplished.  You can do anything you set your mind to.  I believe in you 🙂

When I was in middle school, my principal would say every morning on the announcements – “Have a super, fantastic, wonderful day.  You have the power within you to make it so.  It’s up to you.”

I heard that everyday for almost 3 years and never thought twice about it.  Now at almost 30 years old I apply it to my life each day-wisdom doesn’t always come in shiny packages.
