Have you branded yourself?



Today for our spring break family outing we are going to hit the trails. We just "found" a network of trails in our city last week and today is in the 60's and sunny~ so we are going to venture out with the kids. It should be a fun time!!
I was reading part of a book by the preacher T.D. Jakes this morning. It was the first time I've ever read anything of his. He seems to be a good writer...He wrote about that we should all "BRAND" ourselves. Similar to how Oprah has branded herself. When we hear the name Oprah~ we know what kind of quality she stands for and we expect that something with her name on it should be a certain way. Each of us should be able to name at least 3 things that are the qualities of our personal BRAND. For instance this would be and example mine:
"Hi, I am Michelle Berger....my mission is to help women by giving them hope to persue their dream body, life and legacy! My method is to lead by example in my own life, showing love to others and giving encouragement to women who God brings into my life."
Have you ever thought about what your brand is? or what you want your brand to BE?
Today is also my day off of workouts~ and BOY am I in need of it!! I am sore! Not as tired as I am many Thursdays, but I am glad we are taking the day off. My lower back is still being a bugger~ I think I strained something in there on Monday...so tomorrow's leg workout will have to be adjusted. AND I have limited my cardio/intervals because of it. So...my week hasn't gone exactly as planned, but it's still been very productive!
