I love this quote by Henri Matisse, "there are always flowers for those that want to see them." I made a promise with myself to be positive this year, and decided to reinforce that goal by writing down one thing I'm thankful for every night. These past couple of weeks have been stressful but I like that it forces me to push myself. I used to give up if something got slightly difficult, but I'm slowly learning to believe in myself - it really is all about perspective. I think that's why I've been going to bikram yoga even though I'm miserable and can't wait for class to end. But I won't lie there's no better feeling than the satisfaction of knowing I made it through a 90 minute class, even though I'm drenched in sweat and aching all over. The hard part is not reaching for chips or ice cream after class...the struggle is real. To those that may be feeling down and having a hard time picking yourself up I hope that you can see the glass half full.
