Weak Things Strong

I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHICH STRENGTHENETH ME. THOUGH WE ALL HAVE WEAKNESSES, WE CAN OVERCOME THEM. INDEED IT IS BY THE GRACE OF GOD THAT, IF WE HUMBLE OURSELVES AND HAVE FAITH, WEAK THINGS CAN BECOME STRONG.

–PRESIDENT DIETER F. UCHTDORF

Don’t Quit

IF YOU GET TIRED LEARN TO REST, NOT TO QUIT.

I know the process can seem long and hard and sometimes we are so tired from trying. So tired from all that is required of us in life and it just seems so much easier to quit. But don’t do it. Don’t quit. Learn to rest. Whether it’s a day off from exercising, a day where you eat whatever you want. A nice leisurely walk with your kids. A massage or getting your nails done. Shopping with your friends or a date night with your hubby.

Figure out what kind of rest if just right for you and do it. You are tough, you can do this. Don’t give up, just don’t quit! Just think how happy you will be one week from now, one month from now and one year from now that you didn’t quit. When you can look back and see how far you have come!

Shake It Off

EVERYBODY ISN’T GOING TO LOVE YOU.
MOST PEOPLE DON’T EVEN LOVE THEMSELVES.

One of the very best and absolute most important things you can do is to learn to love yourself. It’s hard I know, I struggle with this one a lot. But it is something I have really been working on and am finding that on most days it is getting a little bit better, a little bit easier. The cool thing is that as you learn to love yourself more you realize that what others think of you doesn’t matter as much as you thought. Just because they may not see your awesomeness doesn’t matter at all. You know how great you are and you learn that you are not defined by what others may or may not think of you.

My little girl may be a little obsessed with Taylor Swift and her song Shake It Off. I hear it a lot and it’s become one of my anthems. So I leave you with her profound words of awesomeness, just shake┬áit off. Who cares what they all think, just be the awesome you that you are! Enjoy!

Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
