Be Your Own Role Model

Just popping in quick to share some inspirational words with you to help you start off your week.  My long run this weekend was a 10 mile run with an awesome friend.  When you run for an hour plus you get a chance to catch up, chat and get some awesome advice.  I always say running with friends is like a therapy session.  My friend Wendy gave me some really great advice that she heard from another friend.  This rocked my world.  BE YOUR OWN ROLE MODEL!  I love this statement.  Often times we are looking at other people as role models when we only see their best and we are looking at our worst.Be your own role model

Stop worrying about what other people think!  This is hard right?  So often we worry about what other people think about our parenting, finances, body, clothing, the cars we drive and our marriages.  Believe me, I do this A LOT!!!!  We need to stop!  

I want to encourage you for the rest of the month and the month of October to focus on being your own role model.  Pick an area of your life that you feel you want to work on the most and take action.  Take the time that you are spending to compare yourself with others and invest the time in YOU.  You are worth it.   I am going to be totally honest and real here with you guys.  I need to stop comparing my body to other fitness professionals!  I have a strong body and I can run 10 miles!!!!  Why do I feel the need to compare myself to others?

If you want to make a change in your life you are the only one who can do it.  What do you plan to focus on?  How are you going to take action?  Leave it in the comments so I can help you be accountable.
