Sunday Thinking

"You do not need outside validation to be happy, free, and authentic. Self-celebration is your birthright. Give yourself permission to be flawed. Give yourself space to self-correct and reroute."

The weekly Sunday Thinking newsletter is quick-hit content that aims to provide a booster shot to your thought process as you end and start your week.

"The butterfly does not contradict the caterpillar; it is a natural stage of its unfoldment. At some point the caterpillar surrenders to the impulse of transforming into a butterfly. When the evolutionary impulse begins to cause you to want you to scratch its itch, you will know it. You don’t have to feel anxious about surrendering to it. Allow it. Surrender is simply saying, I am available to what seeks to emerge through and as me."

― Michael Bernard Beckwith, Life Visioning

I. Thinking & Rethinking

  • Progress isn’t always about getting better. Sometimes it’s about bouncing back. 
  • Success is not only the peaks you reach — it’s the valleys you conquer. 
  • Every experience of enduring adversity and overcoming obstacles is a meaningful accomplishment. 
  • Resilience is a form of growth.

II. Take Back Your Power 

  • There is power in practice.
  • There is power in acceptance.
  • There is power in persistence.
  • There is power in consistency.
  • There is power in intentionality.
  • There is power in being present.

Don’t underestimate the power of mastering the mind and cultivating moments in our daily living to cancel out and shut out the noise. 

When we are able to do that with consistency, we allow ourselves to keep the main thing the main thing and reclaim our power.
