Make yourself proud and empowered!!

You have this one life. 
How do you want to spend it? 
Apologizing? Regretting? 
Questioning? Hating yourself? 
Dieting? Running after people who don’t see you? 
(no!, mom)
Be brave. Believe in yourself. 
Do what feels good. Take risks. 
You have this one life. 
Make yourself proud.

This quote speaks to SO many choices and actions that we make in a day that can drain the our energy and undermine who we are.  It is so important to be mindful of the way we act and the choices we make and how they reflect who we are.  

One way that we can help be more true to ourselves is by being aware of how, when and why we apologize.  An apology is important if it is warranted, but too many times we, especially women, will apologize when it is not necessary or even appropriate.  Many times the apology undermines our ideas, our contributions and ourselves.  

Watch the below video by Pantene, it is quite eye-opening and demonstrates ways of communicating without using the undermining 5 letter word, sorry.

How do you want to spend your one precious life?? 
love, mom
