Monday Morning Motivation: Love Thyself First! (PODCAST)

Good Enough Mother® - "Family & Home Life" Rene

Oh Happy Day! Happy Monday everyone! I don’t know why but I am really feelin’ good these days. Scratch that, I know why. There’s a lot happening in the GEMpire (more on that later) so it’s just nice to see the vision and hard work of the last seven years start to pay off.

So I was working out this morning (more on that in a bit too) and came home to walk the dog. I popped in my ear buds and the song cued up was Jennifer Hudson singing, “And I am Telling You I’m Not Going”.  Now I’ve heard that song a thousand times but for some reason it took me back. Way, way back to a difficult time. So why am I smiling then? For that answer, you need to listen to today’s Monday Morning Motivation!

    You are telling the truth on this Rene, I had to let go of not feeling adequate enough, small enough, or if you like or love me. It’s about self love, no one will love us if they don’t see us being good to ourself. I blog about it quite often, and share that on my Facebook page. Love Monday Morning Motivation! That is such a power song though, thanks for sharing!
