A Challenge & LOVE 41

I know you've heard me talk quite a bit about getting fit on the blog. But today, I'd also like to share a more personal goal that effects my self-esteem one hundred times more than any exterior change could bring about. Because self-worth & self-image is not really about what's reflected back in a's about the knowledge you hold and the truths you know. The funny thing about self-image is that no one can give it to you. You have to create it all on your own. This is something I've always struggled with throughout my life. 

But this year I'm choosing to let the little positives in my life out-weight the negatives. Not dwelling on what I haven't done perfectly but on what I've tried perfectly at!

Here is to being a little more positive this year. Positive with my thoughts, my outlook, my words & actions. So that we can have more happiness, love and growth (in all aspects of the word) and I know it won't happen overnight, but I know if I put the extra effort in, it will happen! 

So today I post this as a challenge to myself. A challenge to change. A challenge to be better. A challenge to be kind. A challenge to be more loving. A challenge to make a difference in the world. 

Not too long ago I stumbled upon Love 41, a company whose sole purpose is to change the lives of others with love. They specialize in making full grain leather handbags & 100% of their profits go to help orphans, widows & children in Rwanda {you can read their whole story here}. I really admire the beautiful work they are doing & the joy they are spreading. So, I wanted to share it with you In the hope that maybe you will fall in love with something that might impact the lives of many:)! 

...Like this beautiful zipper tote bag:) {I also love this this this}.
