Being your own champion

Posted Thursday, January 22nd, 2015. Filed Under Voices of wisdom

This is along the theme of learning to let the “you” fall away (My Daily Dose). Today I called a friend of mine when I read this article because it was along the lines of a conversation that she and I had about how 2015, especially at this time, is about focussing on the ‘ME’.

That may sound egocentric however I am not talking from an ego place rather from the “ME” that just is – not good or bad, not right or wrong; not the mother, daughter, sister, friend, lover… just the
human being and spirit.

This became even more important after I learned a friend of mine, someone I met many years ago in New York through my empowerment work, died this weekend. She battled with breast cancer for many years. She was a true angel. Then I called a friend to wish her happy birthday and she told me that her doctor found some cancer on her face and thank goodness it was not serious. I then caught up with another friend and her sister discovered just before the holidays she had thyroid cancer. Well, you can imagine how this can impact one’s spirit. I decided that there is nothing more important than the “me” especially after hearing this news.

This means focussing on me – physically, emotionally and spiritually. I know that I am my own best champion so each day I start my day with positive words to myself. This is important as we live in a world fraught with so much negativity. Keeping your spirits up is important. I hope that each and every one of you reading this knows how important and special you are. Each day you have the opportunity to impact a life, yours and someone else’s. This is true even on the smallest scale. Just a simple smile can improve the day of someone going through something horrible and challenging. And then there are days when someone’s smile lifts you up. This morning I woke up a little down and the first thing I did was to do my affirmations and lift my own spirits. Then I met with someone today to discuss a program in its infancy — a youth entrepreneurial scholarship program and it inspired me and reminded me that there are good things also happening in the world.

I choose to let the ‘other stuff’ fall away and just be the best me. I choose to inspire others through my own actions and leading by example. I do this as a human being, from one to the next.

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and keep those spirits up. When you are down find the words that will lift you up.

All my love,
