Your Inner Mantra

American Flag and Girl

“Each day silently affirm that you are the type of person with whom you would like to spend the rest of your life.” ~ Bob Moawad

We all struggle at times with that inner voice that tells us we’re not enough – not smart enough, thin enough, organized enough – you name it.

I was fortunate on one of those days to experience a little mentoring moment from a stranger. (You have to be on the lookout for such moments- they’re everywhere!)

After a rather exhausting exercise session with my trainer, I wandered into the locker room to get my things and let my heart rate come back to baseline. I noticed a tiny older woman standing at the sink washing her hands. I’d guess her to be 80-85 years old. She was wearing capri pants, a white T-shirt and some awesome work out shoes!

She didn’t realize I’d walked in and was repeating something over and over to herself as she slowly washed her hands. At first I couldn’t decipher what she was saying, and then it became clear, “I am a strong and capable woman. I am a strong and capable woman.”


What’s your inner mantra?
