Why Struggle?life is too short to wear tight shoes has been called a “mini reference manual for personal development and is a book that encourages you to accept life for what it is – an unpredictable journey. Enjoy the excerpt below.
Self-confidence is Like the Weather
Some days I wake up feeling fantastic. Some days I don’t feel as great when I wake up.
It’s okay. Life is still happening all around. Self-confidence and self-esteem are like the weather. Hot, cold, cloudy or rainy- the weather is always changing. Some days we feel great about ourselves. Other days, we want to crawl back under the covers and wait for a new day.
When I’m having a particularly challenging day, I go to bed as early as I can. Often times, if I can, I will take a nap. There is something about sleeping that mentally shifts my energy and helps me move forward. I am comforted by knowing that tomorrow is a new day and there’s a 50/50 chance the sun will shine.
Always know there are other people having stormy days just like you. Look yourself in the mirror and be grateful to be alive.
Practice: Look yourself in the mirror daily. Look for all the lines, wrinkles and perfections. Affirm aloud, “I love all of me – body, mind and spirit.”
Affirmation: I accept myself for the beauty I have to offer and I share myself with the world.
