The Power of Awesome!

If you're anything like me, doubts always seem to be stalking you . . . waiting for the perfect chance to ninja-roll and attack! They don't ever strike when you're on top of your game and loving life. No, these pesky critters wait until they see you pause and then BAM!! Next thing you know, your smile is now a frown, and the bright, shiny confidence you've enjoyed is shredded.

Sucks, huh?

Some of the best advice I've ever been given is to give yourself permission to be 


Yep, that might sound strange, but just as we let ourselves slip into a funk and wallow around in self-doubt, we also need to tell ourselves it's OKAY to succeed, it's OKAY to be happy, and it's definitely OKAY to reach for our dreams and claim them. There's nothing wrong with believing in ourselves and having the hope that then motivates us to pursue every opportunity within our reach. Hold on tight to the hope that stirs in our hearts and take as many leaps of faith as necessary. Be brave because you never know where your courage will lead you. All it takes is one step ... and then another ... and then another. Before you know it, life is amazing and even if it throws challenges your way, you can handle them.

So be positive. Choose happiness. 
And don't forget ... BE AWESOME!!

Because honestly, that's who you ARE!
