Coach Nicole posted something on her facebook page yesterday that really motivated me and moved me. I had tears in my eyes.
How we see ourselves is important. So I plan to be more gentle to myself. I am very hard on myself. My daughter tells me this all the time.
My daughter needed encouragement this morning. She is trying to get out of wearing just tshirts and bluejeans. She wants to look more girly. She wore a different type of blouse this morning. I told her she looked very nice. It made a difference because before she would go and change into a tshirt.
In return I got a compliment too. Teenagers go through some really stressful situations. They need our positive support.
I am going to try not to be so hard on myself. I told myself in the mirror this morning. "You are beautiful."
Whatever you ask for in prayer,
believe that you have received it,
and it will be yours. (NIV)
I only take one day at a time, and not worry about the past. Right now is what is important.
One person said to me, "if you don't try, you have lost nothing, but if you do try, then you have gained confidence to do better"
