Not sure why day six and seven were deleted last week... but here they are!
Day 6 - What IF
Take a moment to imagine what it would be like if you were living your happiest life right now. How would you be feeling? How would you be behaving? Or you actually being the person you intend to become?
Today, notice the divide between who you desire to be and where you are now.
Are you doing what you said you would do?
You best self isn’t being created next week.
It’s really the small steps you take every day.
So, today be the person you intend to become.
What does the happiest version of you do?

When I first joined a support group I did not workout everyday. I did not know the first thing about meal planning and prepping. I never had a grocery list… I think I had a Wal-Mart list - LOL - but I started to do things every day to help me become a healthier version of myself. Keep focus on where you want to be… and keep doing the things to get you there!
Day 7 - Do what you do best
Today is another act of self love!
Let’s search out our strengths and celebrate them.
Positive Psychology encourages us to play to our strengths and virtues and to focus on what is going well, instead of what is going wrong.
When we are growing up people tells us to stop showing off…. Which can lead to self deprecation as adults.
Are you able to accept a compliment?
Do more of what you do best! Do more of that!
