Owning your shit is no walk in the park. You must be determined, you must be persistent, and you must be a warrior!!! No one is going to ride in on their white steed and save you from yourself, from your past, or from your pain. You have to be your own hero. And let me tell you… you won’t always feel strong. You won’t always feel like you have the energy, or the will to keep fighting the fight. Quite often once you have made the first steps toward healing, toward moving forward, toward taking control it will get much harder before it gets better. Just remember that you are capable of great things. Every single person reading this is capable of badassery if you resolve yourself to take action.
How do you make that happen?
As they say, “The struggle is real”. Based on your unique journey and your goals, you may be facing a wide range of challenges. Finding the motivation when you are dealing with grief, illness, or mental illnesses is damn near impossible. But don’t let these roadblocks keep you from living the happy, healthy, best life that you dream of. It can be so overwhelming trying to figure out where to begin. Even a simple google search may yield more information than you want to sift through and you may find yourself giving up before you have even begun. I have been there! Take a deep breath, and use some of the following techniques to help you with that first step toward taking action!
