A few years ago, I was walking down the street in New York City and came upon this...one of my favorite all time images.
"We can do it."
I constantly remind myself of this.
Like the time I ran a marathon with little to no training. I had never ran more than 5 miles prior to running that day. I told myself...I can do it.
Like the time I pulled all-nighters after all-nighters studying for my licenser exam... and passed! I can do it.
Like the time I gave birth. Twice. Enough said. I can do it.
Like the time I pulled myself out of bed to feed my newborn with 104 degree temperature and the flu. I can do it.
Like the time I carried both kids and a bag of groceries through the front door while I was consoling a friend on the phone. I can do it.
Like the time I managed to complete all the laundry in one day- folded and put away. I can do it.
Like the time I spoke at a seminar in front of hundreds of people. I can do it.
Like the times I got out of bed even when I wanted to pull the covers over my head and go back to sleep. I can do it.
I am not going to say I don't have moments where that bully voice in my head gets the best of me and I wonder what in the world am I thinking... why even bother... might as well give up.
Oh yah bully...
I push up my sleeves, put my game face on, and flex my muscles.
Oh. Yes. I. Can. Do. It.
I refuse to listen to that inner bully.
And so should you.
