Mantras in May, Strong – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


Hmmmm. Something new is going on here on at the Sisterhood! It’s Mantras in May.


Now to be honest, I had to google Mantra before I started writing this post. Yeah sure, I’ve heard the word before, I’ve even used the word. Several times. But I needed to google it anyway, because if I’m coming here to share some Mantras with you, I didn’t want to look like a total fool.

So what is a Mantra?

[man-truh, mahn-, muhn-] -noun

a sound, syllable, word, or group of words that is considered capable of “creating transformation”

You could also call it a motto.

[mot-oh] – noun

a maxim adopted as an expression of the guiding principle ofa person, organization, city, etc.

So this week our Sisterhood Mantra is going to be:

Say it with me! I am strong. I am strong. Repeat it over and over. Even if you don’t believe it. Write it on a sticky note and stick it on your mirror. Heck write it on lots of sticky notes and put those bad boys everywhere!

So do you feel strong now?

This week, I want you to remind yourself often that you are strong. And to prove it to yourself, I want  you to push yourself to be strong, to feel strong, to look strong. Run a little further than you plan. Lift a little more weight than you usually do. Do a few more reps of push-ups, squats, lunges. Walk a few more steps. Strike a pose in front of the mirror and check out your guns. Don’t just say no to that overindulgence, say HELL NO!

Why? Because we want you to live the mantra this week. Even if you don’t feel strong. If you keep telling yourself you’re strong, and pushing yourself to be strong, then, by golly, you WILL be strong. You are capable of creating a transformation in your mind and body. You are capable of being strong.

p.s. There’s strength in numbers. And we’ve got you covered.

And now some strong quotes for you to ponder!

  • Only the strong survive.
  • Let’s be strong like it’s the only choice we have.
  • Strong is the new skinny.
  • You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.
  • I’m only as strong as the coffee I drink and the hairspray I use. 😉
