Need a little motivation? Look no farther than Mercedes "MJ" Javid's Instagram feed. On August 26, the Shahs of Sunset newlywed took to social media to share what keeps her reaching for highest goals these days — and it's actually a throwback photo of herself!
To caption a shot of herself looking glamorous as always in a gown with a sweetheart neckline, the Shahs pal wrote: "Are you your own motivation? Holy s---, this is [100 percent] going to keep me focused. Remember not to shame yourself. Positive thinking and a positive inner dialogue is the key to our success. I have goals to reach, but it doesn’t mean I’ll beat myself up on the journey. We all have ups and downs. One day at a time, one good decision at a time. I got this."
In response to MJ's empowering words, fans filled her comments section with some verbal high fives. "Thanks Mercedes, I needed that," said one follower. Another wrote, in part: "I just want you to know what a positive inspiration you are to me! I’ve always been very big busty girl and I can be self conscious about it at time and seeing you on TV and hearing or reading your comments about yourself helps me stay positive and stop being so hard on myself! I love your style and attitude! Keep doing what you’re doing[;] it’s inspirational for us curvy gals in the world."
Rock on — and post on — MJ!
