I’ll be honest, I don’t always feel like drinking water, but I know how I feel when I don’t drink enough – brain fog, irritability, fatigue, to name a few – so I try to get at least 100 ounces of water everyday by drinking varying amounts of hot, room temperature, and sometimes cold water.
A while back I answered “Do You Ever Celebrate the Green Lights?” from Marc and Angel Hack Life’s Questions to Ask Yourself series.

Have you thought about where the negative beliefs you have about yourself come from?
When I was young, I was constantly teased for being unusually tall for my age (there were times when my mother would actually let me lie about my age so I would have to deal with, “My goodness, you’re only six?!

I just couldn’t win on the social and emotional fronts.
Self-Love can be one of the most difficult concepts to embrace and sustain. Personally, I felt like this should have been the intention for the very first day in this series, something that the other intentions should build off of. But since you can pick and choose which intention you want to begin with, I guess it’s fine.

But if you want things to change, that’s exactly what you have to do.
Act, or be acted upon.
You have to get to a point in your life where you say, “Enough is Enough. I am worth more than this fear, this pain, this whatever that I’m allowing to hold me back.”
