If you know me, you know that I post a quote almost every day on my Tik Tok, it’s a quick, simple thing that I do every morning before I open up my computer for work. I often wish that I would give myself time to go deeper with the quotes, my thought, etc. So, I’ve decided that I’m going to do that more on this blog. So, here we go!
It’s not the mountain that we conquer but ourselves.Sir Edmund Hillary
We are often our worst enemy, if anyone knows this, it’s me. I’ve spent years thinking I was struggling with other people, but really it’s myself that I needed to conquer. The truth is that other people can get to you, but only if you let them.
Folks, it’s taken me 47 years to figure this out. While yes, it sucks to be treated in a bad way, it’s really how you react to it that is what matters. I believe that it’s all about your attitude and how you let it effect you.
As silly as it looks, if you need to look in the mirror in the morning and tell yourself you are awesome, do it. Cause you are awesome. If you need to visualize winning a race, or writing your first book, or conquering your worst fear, do it.
I often feel like I’ve let myself be robbed of many years because I’ve allowed the negative self-talk to get to conquer me. And, the negative self- talk is really the mountain that I’m interpreting this quote to mean.
It’s Saturday, go for a walk, kiss a loved one, read a book, go to a movie. Take care of yourself today because you deserve it!
