No One Controls My Greatness But Me #GirlsCan

I watched this #GirlsCan ad spot for Cover Girl this morning and just love the empowering message it sends. It got me thinking about the times I’ve been doubted and told that I “can’t” do something.

You know the saying, “misery loves company,” right? People tell you what you can’t do when they weren’t able to do it themselves. It makes them feel better if you can’t do it either, so they want you to believe that to be true. To them, it must be true, because it is what they believe. They have decided that something is impossible. That’s their truth.

I can’t even count how many times in one day I hear the words “You Can’t.” I’m so used to hearing it and brushing it off as a lie, but there are certain instances where I’ve had to step back and tell myself, “Yes I Can.”
