A Fall Mantra

Happy Labor Day, friends! As summer’s warmth gives way to the clear, crisp days of fall, I’m refreshing my routine with a new action-inspiring mantra, courtesy of the creative muses at SELF.     


No one who has ever achieved greatness got there by following an easy path laid out by others. She did it by creating her own vision and striving to achieve, then surpass it. Now that the lazy days of summer are behind you, it’s time to renew your focus. Think about what you want to accomplish, set a goal, and take a step toward it every day. You are standing on the brink of something spectacular.

It's my perfect daily jump-start. What's yours?

  1. I like to remind myself to breathe, slow down and enjoy each moment as it comes. I tend to be a MAJOR over - planner and sometimes when you do that you miss out on all the unplanned things that come your way!

  7. My motivation for everyday is simple: Be happy. Have fun.
    That's it!
    It makes it so much easier to get up in the mornings when you put less stress on yourself.
