You Are A BadAss

Recently I had the pleasure of reading the book, “You Are A Badass. How To Stop Doubting Your Greatness And Start Living An Awesome Life” by Jen Sincero. It’s a self-help book. Did I just hear you groan? I know “self-help” books always make me feel like I don’t have my shit together. Which is fine, cause I kinda don’t. I mean who does? If someone tells you they do, they are lying…or so crazy they don’t even realize it.

Okay, in all seriousness, it’s a really entertaining book filled with awesome advice and simple (mental) exercises on how to identify (and change) your beliefs and behaviors that are keeping you stagnant in your life. 

There are so many good nuggets of wisdom in this book. Check these out:

The Universe will match whatever vibration you put out. And you can’t fool The Universe.

Yes! You attract what you put out into the world. If you are sulking around at a low frequency (meaning being negative, pessimistic, jealous, worried), that's exactly what you'll attract. You will not attract higher frequency things such as awesome people, things, experiences. 

Comparison is the fastest way to take all the fun out of life

Ugh, so very true. How many times have you been about to walk into a room and you think you are looking so hot. Like, really feeling yourself. And then you start looking around and comparing yourself to all the other women in the room. All of a sudden you are feeling frumpy, fat, old, whatever. #nolongerfeelingyourself #nofun

Or you create something so amazing, only to then compare it to what others have made. #sucksandnofun

You are you. Awesome. Unique. And incomparable. So just stop.

The moment you decide to forgive and let your negative feelings melt away, you are on the road to freedom. Forgiveness is all about taking care of you, not the person you need to forgive. It’s about taking responsibility for your own happiness instead of pretending it’s in somebody’s else’s hands.

Okay, that deserves rereading. YOU are in charge of your happiness. Stop carrying around resentment and anger towards someone else. Forgive them, for YOUR sake and move the fuck on.

There are so many more quotes I would love to share with you, but I would basically be typing the entire book, so I'll let you read it on your own. I highly recommend it, even if it’s a “self-help” book.

Get over yourself. You could probably use a little help ;)
