Rock What You Got

I’m going to have you do a little homework before you read this post.  Oh stop moaning, it’s not that hard.

I want you to listen to this song:

Did you listen?  Good.  I’m trusting that you did.

I have listened to Superchick for years and in fact, I have heard this song a good 50 times before.  But as I was out running about the other day, this song came on and it kind of hit me in a new light.

Rock what you got.

I have spent a lot of time trying to change things about me so that I can “rock it”.  I focus on what needs to be fixed or adjusted to get to a point where I feel like I am worthy of being awesome.

That’s not cool.

I have been given everything that I need to rock.  There are so many awesome things about me that no one else has, and I’m doing myself a disservice if I don’t choose to rock what I’ve got.

I’m not saying that I don’t want to improve myself or do things to meet new goals.  It’s ok to rock what you have right at this moment while working to achieve other things.  Be proud of YOU every single second of the day.  That pride and encouragement, even if it just comes from you alone, can help push you forward.

So how about it?  I’m making a pledge to start rocking everything I got.

My ability to push myself at the end of a long run?  Rocking it.

My willingness to try a new or difficult yoga pose even if I faceplant?  Rocking it.

My desire to help serve others in the best way I know how?  Rocking it.

My hope to accomplish new goals and dreams?  Rocking it.

You don’t have to wait until you think you have what it takes to rock it.  Start now, this very second.  You have everything you need in this moment.  Even if you don’t feel that way, act like you do.  I bet pretty soon you won’t have to be faking it. rock

Have an awesome Monday and remember, rock what you got!
