Keto Mom Here!

         "Divine moments live in between the sweet beginnings and the savoring ends. They exist between innocence and the invincible. In the midst of a divine moment, you are both most powerful and most vulnerable. This messy in-between is the context of your life. You do yourself a disservice when every story has a happy ending in this life. It is far more important that there's a meaningful middle. So often that we're paralyzed in our fear to do anything wrong, and it's important to always move forward with all of the wisdom possible". ~Erwin McManus

Full Episode Transcript:

Hey everybody! Welcome to the Keto Mom page. My name is Stephanie, and we're going to dive into our book, "Chasing Daylight" by Erwin McManus, our morning mindset. So as you're tuning in, where are you tuning in from? How is your morning? How was your weekend? Happy Monday! I actually love Mondays. I feel like we're here at a new week, and I do love it. So good morning, I was cleaning my room and I found these cute little quote cards the other day. I thought I'd read one to you, I picked this one out first, it said "Crush your goals".

Welcome to Day 12 of our Book 8 session
Here is the little quote or thought from that quote, and I just love finding new things that you didn't know you had. Okay, so it says "Do not wait! The time will never be just right. Start where you stand and work with whatever tool you have at your command". Napoleon Hill...

We say that often, "Don't mess up good for perfect". Just start! The time is never right, start where you stand and work with what you have. All right! I hope everybody had a wonderful weekend. Happy Monday! If you're at work or at home, wherever you are at, we are reading this book "Chasing Daylight". If you're brand new to the page, the point of the morning is just to give you something to think about.

This might hit you where you feel like you just need to start, and you've been waiting for that perfect time, or you just need to do something.

Oftentimes people think they need to have all of the tools, the resources, the perfect food, the perfect snacks, or the right scale. Listen, you just have to use what you have. So if that's what hit you today, take it, hold on to it, and take action... I love Monday morning, or I love all mornings. I love to read and I love to work on my mindset because I truly believe that if you work on your mindset every single morning, whether it's reading, listening to a podcast, listening to somebody or something, even if it's just picking up a quote and reading it to get your mindset right. It will truly help you walk through your day. If you have the right mindset, if you're thankful and grateful, you will make better choices throughout your entire day.
