I recently bumped into a friend who looked amazing! Of course, without hesitation I let her know how great she looked. To my surprise, she made a joke and didn't feel the same way about herself. It reminded me of how feeling good and looking good go hand in hand, no matter who you are. As women we juggle multiple roles, (mother, daughter, student, teacher, etc.) and forget to take care of ourselves both on the inside and out.
As a therapist practicing in D.C. for years, I continually reminded my clients that every person has his/her own destiny. I know, I know it sounds very cliché, but no matter who you are there will always be someone that has more. Whether they are smarter, prettier, wealthier, or more spiritual, every person needs to find their inspiration! It may be that you want to begin a new career, or you would like to start volunteering and getting more involved in the community, or become more spiritually connected. Whatever it is that you would like to accomplish, take a minute and write it down! You are more likely to attempt accomplishing that goal when you can actually see it on paper. It also makes it much easier to map out how you're going to get there. You always need a plan!
We all know that whatever you would like to accomplish in life is going to be a challenge. On my journey, I have learned that as long as I continue to strive to have a good spiritual connection and surround myself with the right people, I have the confidence to continue evolving into the best person that I can be.
This is a great month to take time to reflect on our surroundings. We can all individually unlock our true potential and block out any negativity. I remember words of wisdom from my father that still give me peace in my heart, "whatever has been written for you no one can take away. So continue to work hard and achieve whatever it is that you want out of life."
"whatever has been written for you no one can take away"
As a part of the team here at Zeena, we have been asked what inspires us and we have the same answer each and every time...our customers, friends, and families have been our inspiration. They have inspired in us the confidence needed to help us achieve our full potential.
