Take Time to Sharpen Your Axe | The Wonderfully Made Podcast

“If I had 8 hours to chop down a tree, I would spend 6 of those hours sharpening my axe.” – Abraham Lincoln

 

While I am not positive Abraham Lincoln was the first to say this, I do believe it is a  powerful quote. Sometimes we don’t feel we have time to dedicate to learning, because there is so much to do. The catch is, all we have to do would be easier if we took time for learning.

 

In changing my mindset, I am really beginning to accept that I need to dedicate more time to learning. Practice makes progress.

Lacking Motivation

I wish it weren’t true, but sometimes I wake up just not feeling like doing what I need to do. If I wait around for the motivation to come, it usually doesn’t. The only cure is to force myself to start, and once I do I usually get a good rhythm going. This is especially true for exercise. Many have said to me they admire my dedication for being active 5-6 days a week. I honestly don’t always feel like it, and it isn’t always a stellar work out, but I do always get a little something done. I show up. I start.

The look you give when you're about to…. bend down and tie your stupid short laces. 🙄

Maybe this is tougher than usual for you.  You have goals and they feel really, really far away. Another way to push yourself is with your thoughts and your words. What you believe creates what is.

In this episode of the Wonderfully Made podcast, I discuss using your words to manifest your dreams. Take a listen below:

4 Ways to Make Your Period More Bearable | The Wonderfully Made Podcast

Hey healthy bunnies,

Over the last several months I have been doing a lot of research about hormone balance, maintaining healthy weight, using food to manage depression and more. Not so surprisingly, I found from many sources that so much of what happens in our bodies is linked and interconnected. Did you know that your cycle is considered a vital sign? Now I am learning it is very important to pay attention to my cycle not just when I am having my period. And I have also learned there are things I can do to minimize the unfavorable symptoms like mood swings or cramp or breakouts.

Who knew?

I hope you enjoy this episode! Follow the link here.

Rise | The Wonderfully Made Podcast

A new day requires new encouragement. I believe so many of us start out with intentions of being positive and ridding ourselves of fear and self doubt– but then circumstances come. Sometimes we are so focused on circumstances, we are unable to see a clear path from where we currently are, to where we know we want to be.

I tweeted something recently:

If we can change our perspective, we can find ourselves fueled by faith and self-love rather than fear and self-doubt.

I created my most recent podcast– Rise Up to remind all of us (myself included) that if we have breath in our bodies, we have a mission that is not complete. I hope it encourages you!
