Don’t Start Your Day Off Worrying

Opportunities, Kym Gordon Moore, Positivity, Motivation, Inspiration

Do you ever have those days when you wake up and start thinking about problems that need solving before you get out of bed? You either feel a huge sense of dread or try to remind yourself to steer clear of distractions and negative thoughts before your day gets started. Sometimes I go through this thought process more than I care to admit, which is why I wrote this motivational affirmation as a reminder to look on the bright side of life, to be more than a conqueror, to make time to sit quietly, to be still and try to avoid worrying about the small stuff!

“Don’t start your day off thinking or worrying about unsolved problems from yesterday. Begin your day with a grateful heart by seeking new, undiscovered opportunities lying just ahead.”  -Kym Gordon Moore

Are You Good Enough?

At some point in everyone’s life, you may ask yourself the question, “Am I Good Enough?” All too often we are whisked away into the great vortex of ”Should.” Who we SHOULD be, how we SHOULD look, what we SHOULD have, how we SHOULD think, what we SHOULD do, or whatever superficial SHOULD falls under society’s definition, entraps our spirit and sends us into some very dark places of inadequacy.

I am cheerfully reminded of the fictional character, Stuart Smalley from the television show Saturday Night Live that was created and performed by comedian, satirist and now U.S. Senator, Al Franken. His mock self-help show called “Daily Affirmations with Stuart Smalley” spawned the affirmational anthem “I’m Good Enough, I’m Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like Me!” 

Unknowingly, we beat ourselves up trying desperately to turn the dreams of someone else into an unachievable reality for ourselves. Unfortunately, if they are not your true, authentic dreams and aspirations you are literally fighting an uphill battle that could leave you feeling defeated. This in no way negates self-improvement, it just reminds us to make our goals conducive to our life and not that of someone else.

Take a look in the mirror…a good look. What is unique about your features and overall persona? How can you positively transform yourself without trying to become someone else? “Mirror, mirror on the wall, I am good enough, imperfections and all.”

Look! Change it

Stand in front of your mirror right now. Look at yourself. Instead of taking a selfie and posting it on social media, think of one thing you can do today to improve YOU…for that person staring back at you from your mirrored image! Just one thing is all you need.
