One Thing you can do to Increase Joy and Self-Esteem.

Updated: Feb 13, 2020

This month gifts us with Valentine’s day! It's all about celebrating LOVE. 💕 One of my favorite quotes about love is from Will Smith.  He said,

“I believe that self-discipline is the definition of self-love”. 

He contends that self-discipline isn’t a bad thing (or a punishment) as we often think it is. 

Self-discipline is self-love. It can bring you:

• joy,

• reward,

• increased confidence and

• self-esteem.

Overcoming is Overwhelming

In February '14, I took part in a 90 day challenge in my mastermind group where I set a goal to run the Bloomsday race in Spokane, WA.  Up to that point, I had never run a mile without stopping.  The Bloomsday race is a 12K. 😳

My Sister in law Sarah Overturf and Myself!

In all honesty I committed to this because of extreme peer pressure. I cried as I crossed the finish line.  I was overcome with emotion because, at 41 years old, I had just ran over 7 miles. Some say I was jogging in slow motion up Doomsday Hill  but at least I was NOT walking. 😊 I had pushed myself to do something that seemed unthinkable a few months earlier. 

Since then, I've found that committing to my health is an uplifting agent for every area of my life. ✨

In the spirit of the season I am kicking off a 30 day self-discipline challenge. 

Pick one personal discipline and one professional discipline. It could be anything:

• Send a text and catch up with one friend, everyday

• Stop eating after 7pm

• Wake up and meditate or set an intention for the day

• Drink at least 60 oz of water, everyday

• Walk at least 8,000 steps a day

• Sit down to eat Breakfast, lunch and dinner,

• etc

I've created an accountability tracking worksheet.  If you want to participate please email me at, and I will send it to you! 🥰

We hope you have an awesome month! We love and appreciate our Beauty at the Lake community 🖤

With Love,


P.S. It’s easy to commit to a challenge ... and then fail. 🤣 If you miss a day, don’t despair! Every day is an opportunity to hit reset. The self-discipline muscle gets stronger with daily workouts.
