It's cold today. There is a light dust of snow this morning but more is expected. The wind is bitter and biting as I walked the dog in the not yet woken up morning. Dark with heavy laden swift moving clouds. I was glad to return to the warmth of the house.

I have postponed my morning run I had planned...conditions too slippery, cold, windy.
I will do an inside workout instead.

It may sound like a downer of a day with the weather as it is, but it's actually beautiful. How great my day is does not depend on the weather, or a run, or the warmth of a house. It depends on ME. The inside ME.
What is going on within my head-space. What is keeping me from doing the things I want to do. Who is responsible for the progress/success in my life? ME. It all comes down to ME.

What I can or can't do is ultimately up to me. A great quote I read "It's not who you are that holds you back. It's who you think you're not. Let go of the judgement, shame, guilt and that negative energy that drags us down. I believe in You, do you?"

Today the answer to that question is YES, I BELIEVE IN ME! I am not going to look at all the things I'm not, but who I am and the amazing abilities I have. I am not going to let the negative voice tell me I'm not good enough.. but that I have energy enough to do what is in front of me.

Don't let YOUR negative voice tell you that you're not good enough...cause that's not true! I believe in YOU!!
