September: lead with love and positivity

contrary to popular belief, i am not Pollyanna. we all have an internal dialogue that waffles between positive and negative. i am hard wired toward positive. i have been told this reflects outwardly. my senior year of high school i was voted "little miss sunshine." it was very authentic and i honestly remember thinking everyone and everything was so cute. with age, wisdom, experience and heartbreak it becomes increasingly more challenging to stay in that mindset. it's an intention to see the world through rose colored glasses. 

i am extremely analytical, and at times that can work against me or make me lean toward a negative mind frame. in my humble opinion, focusing on the negative is easy. there are plenty of things to be fearful of and worry about. there are plenty of people to talk negatively about. i want to take a different path. 

i once read a quote that i have been thinking about incessantly. we should all be reminded of these wise words by Eleanor Roosevelt. 

this month, which happens to be my birth month (yay!) i am going to focus on not uttering negative words. we are all wired toward judgment, it's easy to do. instead let's choose to lead with love. i want to age gracefully and what comes out of our mouths is a direct reflection of how we feel about ourselves and the world around us. choose love!
