What Do You Stand For?
I wanted to share what Annika created for me. What do you stand for? Here’s what I stand for:
1. Remember…done is better than perfect.
Progress is the enemy of perfection. Taking imperfect action IS the ONLY way to improve on something. We are evolving creatures. As such, things are rarely perfect. Progress – not perfection.
2. You are perfect in your imperfection.
Earlier this year, I truly embodied my imperfections. I finally believe, know and feel that I am truly perfect in all my imperfections. No more judgment.YOU are perfect in all your imperfections. Click To Tweet
3. You are inspiring, unlimited and amazing.
YES! You have a story worth telling. You have lessons learned worth teaching. You are a magnificent spirit. You are AH-mazing just the way you are. Remember, someone is watching you and listening to you. You’d be amazed at just how inspiring you are to someone else. You have everything needed already within you.You are inspiring, unlimited and amazing. Click To Tweet
4. Self-Love is the best love.
I believe that you must love yourself first before you are able to truly love another in the way they deserve to be loved (and the way you deserve to receive love). When you don’t love yourself, you don’t take care of yourself. Deep down, there is a deserve-ability, worthiness and believe-ability issue. When you love yourself, this is your theme song.Remember, self-love is the BEST LOVE. Click To Tweet
5. Remove what you don’t love and respect your boundaries.
Remove what you don’t love in your life, let it go and make room for all the things you DO love. Boundaries are critical to having a successful life. Respect yourself and others will respect you. So, if people around you aren’t for your highest good and aren’t lifting you UP, gently remove them off of your train and send them away with love.Remove what you don't love and respect your boundaries.

6. Be the butterfly…it’s your time.
We are all changing into beautiful butterflies throughout our lives. Changing and growing… Be the butterfly is about standing up, stepping out and shining your light. It’s truly your time. Right NOW. Not tomorrow. Not next month. Not next year. N.O.W.Be the butterfly...it's your time NOW. Click To Tweet
7. Use your voice.
You are powerful beyond measure. You are a shining light (refer to #6!!). You are here for a unique purpose and it’s your responsibility to use your voice when, where, and how it matters. Figure out what things matter to you and use your voice to make the world a better place.
8. You are in charge of your life.
Remember, YOU and you alone are responsible for your life. No excuses, no regrets. No “shoulda” “woulda” “coulda”. The only thing getting in the way of your one, beautiful life is YOU. Get out of your own way and take charge of your one, beautiful life.Get out of your own way and take charge of your one, beautiful life. Click To Tweet
9. Live a life that matters.
At the end of your life, you’ll ask whether you truly lived your life to its fullest potential, whether you truly loved and whether you led a life that matters. You’ll contemplate whether you created a legacy beyond yourself and your life and led a life you were proud of. Living a life that matters; however you define it, is key.Live a life that matters.

10. Believe in the power of your mind.
You have the power within to be, do and have anything you want. It’s that simple. I’ve helped heal myself and others from many things and it’s all about the mindset. Believe that you have the power within. You do.
11. Show gratitude…it heals and transforms.
