We have to step up and be the person to encourage ourselves. The one that pushes us to be more, do more, and not quit. What we feed ourselves, we do eat! So let’s be more aware of how we talk to ourselves and what we actually say.
I have to admit that I have many occasions even now when I catch myself be unkind to me. This has to stop and I take it minute by minute paying attention to what I am saying in my inner dialogue.
If you would not accept someone else speaking to you in a way that sounds like bullying or anything else unkind, why would you do it to you? Why put yourself down? The things that you say to yourself…would you say that to someone you love? Then why say it to yourself?
We need to pay attention to what we say. Not just to others, also what we say to ourselves. If we can do nothing else…we can be kind….
I am a blogger and a mom of 3 sons. It has not been easy raising military brats, but I tell you that I have fallen deeper in love with them by the minute. One has graduated college with his Bachelors, works as a firefighter and behavior health technician with autistic children and is heading back for his Masters after a small break. My middle son is going into his third year of college. My last little guy is currently being home-schooled and we are having a blast!! Although 2 of my boys are grown and doing their thing, we remain a tightly-knit family. Blogging about my life and struggles and my wins was definitely a dream of mine.
