Let’s kick off Monday on the right foot shall we? I am going to make this short and sweet but I hope you take a moment to read this. You’ve probably heard various versions of these quotes:
“Mindset is everything”
“If you think you can’t and you think you can: you are right”
“Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior become your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habit become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny”
My SoulCycle instructor of all people iterated this in class last Friday morning. She always includes a little piece of advice during the second to last song of the session. This one stuck with me and admittedly even made me feel a little teary. She said something to the effect of “If I could give you one thing to take with you from this class its that you have 100% control over your mindset.” It certainly wasn’t the first time I had ever heard or read this but it was the reminder I needed that day, yesterday, today, and forever.
To be transparent with you – I have been complaining A LOT lately. And where has it got me? No where really. I have been filling my mind with such negativity that it has worn me out to the point of exhaustion and even more frustration. I have forgotten the importance of staying positive, seeing the brighter side of things, appreciating what I DO have, believing in myself enough to move forward if something is making me unhappy, or to just giving myself a break.
Let’s face it we are all going through something and no one’s life is perfect. Although things like social media make it out to be! So let’s all try to tell ourselves to focus on the good. If you’re trying to work up the courage to do something – whether you want to get back in shape, get a new job, ask for a promotion, go on that date, feel confident in that sexy outfit, take that solo trip, or just get through the work week – have the strength to change your negative thoughts into positive ones…If you think you can, you will! There are a lot things we can and can’t control in this life. For the things you can control – let’s all work on having a positive outlook. You won’t be able to do this ALL the time but when you do – it will feel like a mini victory at the moment and will feel so good
OK – To quickly talk about this look…there is always a fashion trend or two I love every season. This season it was slide-on mules/sandals and tie-front tops. Today we talk about tie-front tops. I never spend too much money on trendy items because I know they come and go fast. This top fit the bill and goes perfect with all my high-waisted denim. Scroll down for more photos and shop more tie-front tops in the scroller below! PS: Brett told me I looked like an 80s mom in this outfit and asked where my head wrap was? Hm…
Have a good day friends! I hope you kick Monday’s ass!
