Recently I was having a discussion with one of my associates, concerned that she was spreading herself too thin. I told her she needed to make herself a priority. I have always believed that you are a better spouse, mother, friend, leader and person if you take care of yourself, and make yourself a “priority”. If you are over tired, stressed out, grumpy ect…you are not doing your loved ones or those that look to you for inspiration, any favors. That is why this quote is one of my faves from Danielle LaPorte.
We should all have a Personal Mission Statement, wrote mine last year but since reading The Fire starter Sessions, I felt like I needed to “‘re launch” it and possibly re write it. But I still feel the same way,it is still ME! I think the only difference is that it feels more validated. Maybe one day I will amend it, or add to it, I have a funny feeling after I am done reading Desire Map, I will. But till then……
This book continues to ignite…this passage just spoke to me in the strongest way. I try..(I say TRY), to live my life in a giving,generous way. I passionately believe that I can make a difference with what I do, we all can. That is how I see every day.
Necessary tools for any Danielle Laporte book, pen , hi-liter, post its, workbook sheets and multiple bookmarks. #daniellelaporte #inspiration ,#firestartersessions
I believe everyone should have an Inspiration board of some kind, I have 3!! One in my office at work, one in my bedroom, (more fashion and friend focused) and one in my kitchen that really rings true of the word inspiration. I look at it every day and it sends me onto my day in a better place. Just thought I would share some inspiration today.
Funny, I posted this last year and I read it now and it saddens me that for the 2nd year in a row I could not wait for my year to end. Here’s the thing, every year is going to have it’s tough moments and we all need to move past those and not let them define our year or ourselves. So I am going back to my Good Things jar and remember all the good that happened, then I am going to get back in the business of filling it with Joy, Hope, and Grace!
That is what I feel….HOPE…when I think about 2013 and it’s expectations and possibilities, all that comes to mind is HOPE. I have such hope for this year. 2012 had it’s bright moments but overall it was not good. It started out very low and had it’s peaks and valleys till the bitter end. In my 48…
Chapter 3 of The Firestarter Sessions, How do you want to feel. I want to feel Hope, Grace and Joy. This is how I see each of those feelings. Feeling so inspired by that book!!!!!! #Thefirestartersessions #danielleleporte
