Happy Monday, dear readers! I hope you all had a lovely weekend! I’m still working on putting together my Ragnar recap, which I’m hoping to publish tomorrow. Today I want to write a bit about loving and accepting yourself, since that’s something that a lot of us, including myself, struggle with.
It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you know in your heart that you can do it. When I ran my first marathon, I just knew deep down that I was ready to run my goal race. There wasn’t any doubt; I just ran. That kind of mental confidence, whether you’re running a race or giving a presentation at work, will help you move mountains.

Without that self-love and self-confidence, things can fall apart. Self-rejection can taint your entire outlook on where you’re at in life, leading you to sell yourself short in all sorts of circumstances. If you think you can only make it to 10,000 feet, you’ll never make it to the moon. Changing your outlook on what you’re capable of can help you achieve goals that you never thought you were capable of achieving.
I think I may have been selling myself short lately on some things, telling myself I’m not a good enough blogger or yogi or teacher, and so on. This week I’m going to take some time to sit down and make some goals that may seem a little unachievable now, but I know with some hard work I’ll make it. I’m setting the bar a little higher because I know I’m stronger than I give myself credit for.
