It’s Okay to Be Amazing


I’ve unraveled from the fetal position.  Now I’m hungry!  Famished, actually.

You know what I’m having for lunch today?

Words.  Delicious, delectable, sensational, rich, healthy, colorful words.

I am going to devour these words until their nutrients are seeping through my skin.  Devour them until I’m stuffed.  And then when I want a treat, I’m going to enjoy them for dessert and inhale them for dinner later tonight.

My brain is totally craving them.  My soul is ready to gobble all that yumminess. I’m salivating.

My abuse post struck a nerve.  I was flooded with messages and texts about how I’m not the only one beating up on myself.  I knew I wasn’t alone!  So…I’d love to invite you all to the most wonderful feast ever!  Yes!  We are going to have cyberlunch, together!  I’m so excited!

Did you know that your subconscious mind has the power to become whatever you tell it to become?  “Whatever you put into your mind-in one way or another-is what you will get back out-in one way or another.” ** It’s like the most obedient puppy ever.  It will, without a doubt, do what we tell it to do.  It will believe what we say.  If you want to make changes in your life, the first place to start is with your mind.  Reprogram it, tell it what to do, tell it who you want to become and send it on its way to greatness.  (Or you could tell your brain that you are lousy and lazy and clumsy and no good and unlucky and sad and blah, blah, blah. But that would be dumb wouldn’t it?)  You would never train a puppy to do something stupid like pee on your bed or chew on the couch or tell them they are worthless and should lay around all day and whine.  So don’t do that to yourself.

Let’s eat. What’s on the menu for today? What words are you hungry for? Who are you? Don’t hold back and don’t be afraid to be AMAZING!!!

This meal is going up on my wall.  I’m chowing this down before I get out of bed every morning…
