I challenge you to take a stand again your abusers. The one in your mind and the ones around you. People who treat you like sh*t, attempt to control your beautiful, free spirit and anyone else who makes you feel like you're weak or incompetent. I don't care if they are family or life long friends...choose YOU, always!
On the porch of my childhood home, a plaque hung on the exposed beams, just about where your eyes would naturally rest when you were gazing up in thought. The plaque contained a quote, attributed to Abraham Lincoln: 'Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak up and remove all doubt.'
I'm sure you've heard of the long-held spiritual belief to the number 40, the philosophy behind it stating that it takes 20 days to break old habits and 20 days to form new ones. I'm interested in knowing if this is just a mystical number or whether there's any proof that 40 is associated with transformation. Because if it is, maybe we will be one step closer to lasting change?
