Sometimes I make bad decisions.
Not like Pulp Fiction bad decisions but 𝑅𝑒𝒶𝓁 𝓁𝒾𝒻𝑒 𝑒𝓋𝑒𝓇𝓎𝒹𝒶𝓎 bad decisions....however, most of the time I try to run my decisions through this one little test before making it. That test is named Marley.
I frequently ask myself this...Do I want my teenage daughter to choose the same decision that I am about to make? Will that decision be teaching her self respect? Because let me tell you...this Momma is trying to raise a powerhouse of a girl. One who stands up for herself and others. One who makes 𝒢𝓇𝑒𝒶𝓉 decisions, loves her strong body and eventually grows into a young woman who respects herself first...and believe me she is watching. I see it in the way she speaks, writes, loves and interacts with others. She is watching my every.darn.move.
It doesn’t have to be a daughter or a child. It can be a friend, a relative, a class room full of students, employees, co workers, neighbors...you name it! Someone, somewhere is watching you and learning from you. They think you are magical. They want to be 𝒥𝓊𝓈𝓉 like you. So here’s your chance to change the world (and love yourself while doing so)
Respect yourself. I know it’s hard sometimes. Especially if you have been disrespected at some point in your life. Maybe you don’t feel worthy of respect.
𝓗𝓮𝓻𝓮 𝓶𝓮 𝓷𝓸𝔀 You are. You ARE. Start now. Make good choices for your mind, your body and your soul. Be kind to yourself. Go ahead...give yourself a little love today and if you are questioning a decision, run it through my test (insert your own Marley here)
