Have Courage and Be Kind
Who has seen the new cinderella movie? So beautiful right?! The costumes, the sets, the magic everything was so wonderfully done! One of my favourite parts (and probably worst part of the movie) was when Ella’s mom died. I know, I cried too. However, I love what she said to Ella right before her passing, “have courage and be kind”. From those words Ella created the life she wanted to live.
Everybody has words that surround their life. For some people they are words that others have said to them and for others its words that they say to themselves; weird, beautiful, odd, strange, geek, smart, athletic, kind etc. They are words we appreciate or words that we wish were never said. It’s an echo in our heads and in our hearts that can build us up or tear us down.
In January, I decided to pick words that I want to build my life upon and write them on a chalk board in my bedroom to remind me of who I want to be. My words are “BE KIND AND STAY FOCUSED” (I know… I’m pretty much Cinderella’s mom #sowise). Be kind to everyone, even the people you feel don’t deserve it and stay focused on whats ahead of you.
This weekend, I challenge you to find some words, a saying or a quote, write it down on the mirror in your bathroom, the back door to your bedroom. A place that you will always see and let those words encourage you to move forward in your life goals and help you to become the girl you’ve never met.
