An Awesome Reminder for Your Monday

I’m sure some of you may have already seen this post before, as it was written about a year ago, but I feel like it’s a great reminder so I wanted to share it with you today.

Waking Up Full of Awesome

August 3rd, 2011 | Author: melissa

There was a time when you were five years old,

and you woke up full of awesome.

You knew you were awesome.

You loved yourself.

You thought you were beautiful,

even with missing teeth and messy hair and mismatched socks inside your grubby sneakers.

You loved your body, and the things it could do.

You thought you were strong.

You knew you were smart.

Do you still have it?

The awesome.

Did someone take it from you?

Did you let them?
Did you hand it over, because someone told you weren’t beautiful enough, thin enough, smart enough, good enough?
Why the hell would you listen to them?

Did you consider they might be full of shit?

Wouldn’t that be nuts, to tell my little girl below that in another five or ten years she might hate herself because she doesn’t look like a starving and Photoshopped fashion model?

Or even more bizarre, that she should be sexy over smart, beautiful over bold?

Are you freaking kidding me?

Look at her. She is full of awesome.

You were, once. Maybe you still are. Maybe you are in the process of getting it back.

All I know is that if you aren’t waking up feeling like this about yourself, you are really missing out.

Amelia says good morning.

Did you know you guys are awesome?

  1. Dude. What a great post and I love, love, love the picture!. My favorite line “you woke up full of awesome” It did make my Monday. Thanks so much for re-posting. Awesome. Muy awesome!

    • Isn’t it fantastic? I feel like I need it on a poster in my bedroom somewhere. And that picture really is the best thing ever!!! So glad I could pass it on :)

    • Isn’t it? I seriously want it for a poster for my room so I can look at her and crack up every morning.

      I think we all need her outfit and her attitude! Maybe we need to have a contest where people dress up and take a picture like Amelia :P The best one wins! :)
