My resistance is my power! 🏹 Go, go, go! 🦏

My resistance is my power…& in this case it was the buttons (words) – triggers that came from the hubs that raised some crappy emotions. He would say that it doesn’t take much to set me off. True dat! Uggg

In any human change, awareness is the first step to overcoming any challenge. Sometimes we don’t realize that what we’re doing doesn’t serve us until it’s too late. It’s important to catch ourselves doing the negative pattern and then interrupt it while we are doing the behavior. 

So, when I was excusing myself from my morning run because of a lil drizzle and Jaye called me out like a drill sergeant (the Army did dat) my initial reaction was to do what I’ve always done – fight back, make excuses, & quit. I did that in fact do that…BUT, this morning I was different. I was aware of how crappy 💩 I felt and what I had done. I knew that I had a choice to be angry 😤 , sulk & stew in the my own madness OR kill 🗡 the monster while it was lil! I did something different. I made a choice to clean up those negative emotions as they were happening.  

I turned that resistance into my POWER!  🏹  I interrupted that crap 💩 with a bad ass RUN 🏃🏻‍♀️and focused on the outcome – the mile 3 marker!  I took responsibility for my reactions, I pushed forward and then I shuck my ass-essory 🍑 and patted myself on da back (atta-girl)…I remembered that any pain is an action signal to STOP! 🛑

Smile! 😁

Wearing my best smile today in honor of ‘NATIONAL SMILE DAY!’ 😁 What make you smile?

I smile when something is funny or if something that I’m doing brings me joy. I smile at puppies and babies. I smile when my children laugh. I rock a mighty grin when I think of those that I love and beam the light of joy ✨ when spending time in the company of delightful people.

Smiles are powerful! They not only create engagement between two people but the more a person smiles, the healthier their brain can be. It is a direct link to our brain and can help to reduce stress.

Just one smile can brighten someone’s day and improve yours. Smiles are infectious. A smile can develop confidence and generate a new outlook on the world. A smile is the universal language of kindness.

Smile because life really isn’t that serious. You’re beautiful and amazing. Smile because you’re unique and you can. Smile because tomorrow is a new day and someone loves you. Because you deserve to…SMILE.

Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. ~ MOTHER TERESA

Give it a try, share a smile – today. 😃 ~ Monette
