For the remainder of our Summer Mindset Series on Instagram we are reading and discussing A Mind of Your Own. It's not too late to join us! This book was recommended to me by a friend and has been SO very eye opening! Disclaimer: This topic is obviously very personal for me.

I am learning SO MUCH about ... Read More about A Mind of Your Own Book Discussion

“If you succeed in justifying your negative emotions, you get to keep them.” Tommy Newberry. The choice is yours. The choice is mine. I can keep saying, “I can’t,” or I can try and fail and learn and grow. I can keep blaming or justifying or dwelling on the negative or I can choose to replace those thoughts with thoughts of gratitude for the blessings I’ve been given. The choice is mine.
