Get YouR HEad RIGHT!

It is time for a little Motivation.  If someone told you every Monday how special you are, I am sure it would make the rest of the day kind of cool!  Well, I am here to tell you that you are "special" because today, when you get your MIND, BODY and SOUL aligned. . .you will be one more person that may encourage another person to be a little bit better than what they expected today. . .and that's what makes you special.  It's your choice!

The Mind, Body and Soul are very connected.  What you think, how your treat your body and your spiritual connection within plays a huge part in your life.  It's all in how you handle each one that will determine how strong you really are.

First.  Get your mind in the right place and use your "tools" to get you there.  Your "tools" can include your favorite mix of music, podcast, a great conversation with a loved one or just a moment of silence to let your mind rest, reboot and reload.  Control your thoughts to control your mind.  

                           Strength is defined as the ability to resist being moved or broken by a force.

Second.  Feed your body with fruits, vegetables and a good, solid workout.  As I always say, your body is made to move.  Living a "heavy couch" life is not what your body was intended to do.  Even though many of the "old school" ways of doing things are done for us, change it.  Wash your car, mow your grass. . .play with family, friends or kids at the park.  Move and make sure you do something that you enjoy!

                           Body is defined as a person's whole physical self or the main, central or principal part.

3.  The connection that you have with your soul can not be explained in one word and when you discover it, you have discovered your spirituality.  I have always been told that I am a woman of God.  Sometimes it is hard to believe when I know that I am not perfect or right all the time.  But let me tell you, change is happening from within and I am surrendering to it more and more every day.  I am happy that I am because I feel more relaxed and "at ease" in my own skin for the first time in, like, FOREVER! I am not perfect and that's what makes ME perfect.

                                               Spiritual is defined as relating to a person's spirit or beliefs.

GET MOTIVATED and STAY THERE! . . .Happy Monday!
