Relentless, confident, passionate, creative, hard working, and focused are qualities that describe you IF you were being honest with yourself. It’s easy to shy away from our fabulousness or dim our light for others to shine, but we should always be our number one fan. We don’t miss out on opportunities to be our biggest critics do we? Yet when the opportunity arises to be the loudest cheerleader in our lives we often end up speechless.
Keep it moving. Three simple words that hold so much power but are often easier said than done.
