Good Tuesday Morning, Friends! My Soul Intention: sometimes you have to encourage yourself along the way. You probably know how to throw a pity party, but do you know how to encourage yourself? Looking to others for encouragement works sometimes, but overall people are busy and invested in their own lives and dreams. Learning to praise yourself and encourage yourself can make the difference in helping you get to where you’re going. When you get whinny self-encouragement needs to take on a stern tone, and when you’re feeling defeated a more loving, accepting tone will help you not give up. Encouraging yourself is another way to express self-respect, confidence and discipline.
