Glow up

Emerson Sunshine quote w tag

You know that saying about “getting out of your own way”? Turns out Ralph was onto it way before your mom, or your 9th grade teacher, or your basketball coach ever were. We’re so good at trying protecting ourselves from the awkward, painful and ridiculous, that we often count ourselves out before we even take a shot at that next step. In school, at work, in our relationships. How many times has “that would be crazy” or “that would never work” been the first and last word on something your heart was telling you to try?

No more. It’s summer, after all. Stop hiding, and get out there and soak up the sun.

I’m gonna let this one mostly speak for itself today, except for this one point. If the back of your mind just said “There’s no way I could do that” when you saw this, take note. It’s one thing to say negative things about yourself out loud – you do that, too, whether you realize it or not – but it’s far more likely that you’re saying them to yourself than out loud.

Either way, you hear it. The question is, do you believe it?
