Another fun fact about me - I love to listen to motivational videos on Youtube when I'm getting ready in the morning. I find that it sets the tone for the day and leads me to a better outcome. The topics that I like to listen to range from sermons, to so and so's "10 Rules for Success", to TED talks, etc. This week I listened to Oprah's Uplifting Speech on Our Empowerment Stage (from the 2016 Essence Festival), which inspired this Quotations post.
So, tell me, do you have any specific positive rituals that you use to start your day? If so, I'd love to know in the comments. :)
I hope you have a happy 4th of July!
