The "Eat Pray Love" Challenge

I think that oftentimes, we're way too hard on ourselves. If we did something we're unhappy with or something we wish we could change, but can't, we dwell on it until we drive ourselves absolutely crazy and we're a veritable mess of the most negative emotions in our world. We see it fit to deny ourselves things that make us happy because deep, DEEP down, we think that we aren't worthy anymore because of the seemingly awful mistake(s) we've made. We look back and we wish, wish, wish and wish some more. Sweetheart, replaying those moments over and over again in your head aren't doing you any good.

But, my dears, contrary to that stupid, negative voice inside your head telling you "NO", YOU are worth it. You are worth everything that this beautiful world has to offer and more. Go ahead and have a good cry about what's happened to you; its OK. But then after that, accept it, embrace it, and move on.

Look forward to the future knowing that what ever has happened to you has made you a better person and has made you just that much more special. Look forward to the future and the blessings of life that Heavenly Father has promised you, knowing that you absolutely, without a doubt deserve them. Let's take this journey together!

  1. I love your post!! It's so true in every way. Sister Hinckley was great at saying things in a way that's inspirational. My philosophy is that we should seize the day and make it memorable.
