After yesterday morning’s post a very awesome reader, Michael, gave me a challenge. I loved it so much I really wanted to share it with you.



I don’t know why this hit me so hard, but it did. I love the idea of focusing on what we are instead of what we aren’t. I know it may seem simple but we often forget the positive traits we each hold.

I took the challenge and set down and made out a list that I thought I would share with you.


“I am Sara, and I am a runner.”

“I am Sara, and I am a person who wears her heart on her sleeve.”

“I am Sara, and I am a very hard worker.”

“I am Sara, and I love my husband with all my heart.”

“I am Sara, and I love food – all kinds of food.”

“I am Sara, and I love helping other people.”

“I am Sara, and I am a nurturer.”

“I am Sara, and I am a person who loves all animals.” 

“I am Sara, and I love family.”

“I am Sara, and I always want to fix everyone and everything.”

“I am Sara, and I have overcome very disordered eating.”


There! I did it. I have to say it is amazing what can happen when you focus on the positive.


Now it’s your turn, tell me at least 3 positive statements about yourself! Go!
