Motivation

I recently came across a quote that really resonated with me. “You are the most valuable investment you will ever make.” After reading it, I immediately started thinking about what the quote meant to me.

If we can’t invest in ourselves, then what can we really invest in? There is no better time than NOW to start whatever project you have on your mind, begin a new fitness program, or create a healthier lifestyle for yourself. Whatever is on your mind, DO IT!! We only have one life to live, so we need to start doing things for ourselves and exploring our passions.

Blogging is something that I thought about for YEARS. There was a lot of hesitation and negative self talk before finally deciding to do it. “Am I too old to be doing this?” or “What if people laugh at me behind my back?” Another common thought in my head was, “What if I am not successful?” There are always so many reasons NOT to do something that makes you happy. But if it’s going to make you happy, then why wouldn’t you it!? Age is just a number, who cares what other people think, and it’s okay not to be successful! You are your biggest critic and advocate. Let’s stop criticizing ourselves and start being our own cheerleader.

The blogging world has been such a positive experience for me. I have learned so much about myself through this journey so far. It’s amazing to me that I’ve met so many people (I’m talking complete strangers) that want to support me! Yes, I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone more times than I can count, but if you don’t step out of your comfort zone…how can you really grow as a person?

The point is to do what makes you happy and start believing in yourself! If you start doing things for yourself, you are not going to regret it! The possibilities are endless and the time is NOW! So, tell me, what are you going to do for yourself?!
