A mentor of mine from back in the day used to say this all the time!!! It stuck with me. It was a nod to living a life of excellence.
You're allowed to have high standards.
You're allowed to live at high levels of excellence. As a matter of fact, you should.
Love yourself enough to know you can have it and you deserve it. ALL!
And that word "deserve" can be very triggering. Because most of us (myself included) weren't taught that we deserve good things. Good things were a gift from God, and we should just be happy we get what we get. Don't say nothin. Don't ask for nothin. Don't rock the boat. Be content. Period.
It took me years to understand what God's grace, God's love and God's generosity really meant in my life. That's a whole story in and of itself - lemme know if you wanna hear.
Because once I got it... I got it! Shift happened!
Getting to choose how you want to live life is a gift - we all get it. Few exercise it. Its a conscious choice.
So...This is my encouragement to you to choose. Set a higher bar for yourself. Because a higher bar is available. Don't settle for mediocrity when limitless possibilities are available!
You can be happy.
You can have more.
You can live the life you want.
But you gotta become the person who knows that those things are meant for them...thats where the cookies are 🙂
