Note to myself that I'm going to put out here because I know I'm not the only woman who needs to be reminded

Hey you. Yeah, you. In the mirror there. Sit down a minute. Calm down a minute. Can I tell you something? You are important. Can I convince you? Will you even listen? You are the captain of your own ship. You posses the ownership papers to you. You're not here to sacrifice yourself. You want change? Make it. If you can't make the change, walk away from the problem. This is your life, afterall.

Never tell yourself you are not worthy, because you are. No one was put on this earth by accident. You are not defined by your roles - you're much more than daughter, sister, Aunt, friend, lover, employee. You, girl, you find your purpose. Who are you? Answer that.

No one thinks to tell you how much you mean to them just when you want or need to hear it. That's your job. Remember, you have to be kind to yourself. Let yourself be happy. Allow that. Think how wonderful it is to share in something called love and kindness. It's in your heart, don't forget.

Are you in a rut? Get out of it. Have you let yourself go? Get yourself back again. Stop having the wrong conversation with yourself. Take your forefinger and flick that negative critic off your shoulder. You are the guide to your greatest dream. You want to see yourself differently? See yourself the way you want to be. The giver and receiver. Look for ways to be wiser, not for sorrow or excuses. Find the path to happiness that lives in your spirit. Does the idea keep coming back to you? It's time to pay attention.
