We all get stuck sometimes. It just happens. Life happens.

So we wallow for a while. We take things as they happen rather than make things happen. We accept our fate rather than defining it as we go along.

Until you remember, you don’t have to.

This is your friendly reminder that life doesn’t just happen, you get to decide. You can change paths. You can choose what’s next.

You’ve given too much power to the other things that affect you. Until today. Now it’s time to take some of it back. Because:

You have gifts you aren’t even aware of.

You have the energy you need to get things done.

You have the talent to be a success at whatever you choose.

You have the right to make decisions. Your decisions.

You have the strength to say yes and no. And mean it without backtracking.

You have the capacity to love again, love deeply, be loved.

You have the drive to follow your dreams and take them as far as possible.

You have the aptitude to think differently, be creative, bring something new to light.

You have the ability to make a difference in the world. Whether that’s changing one person or a billion people, that’s up to you. Each is important. Each can change history forever.

You have the muscle to fight for everything you desire.

You have the skill to learn something new.

You have the flair to be a true creative.

You have the knack for uncovering what’s deep inside you, bring it to light, let it shine.

You have the style to turn something ordinary into something extraordinary.

You have the forte to make something magical from something you only dreamed was possible.

You have the expertise to find the right path, the right resources, the right place.

You have the proficiency to know the good from the bad, the right from the wrong.

You have the vitality to be the best you can be.

You have the power to unleash brand new potential.

You have the potential to astonish the world.

Think of this as your friendly reminder. Think of this as your push to start something new.
