What words do you use to describe yourself?
happy, go-lucky, positive, to name but a few.
But for years, I have also called myself fat, not good with numbers, or just plain not good enough in general. It’s hard to admit that despite being a very upbeat person I struggle with feelings of insecurity, but I do. Just as someLen reading this might be feeling right now. Just today, I found myself
saying, “I am not a runner” referring to the 5K I am
walking in next Saturday, but then thought about
a second and added , “yet”. Because before I walked 3 miles I had to walk one. Before I lost fifty pounds, I had to take a series of smaller steps,which included saying, you “CAN DO THIS” to myself along the way.
So I choose to be my own cheerleader and eliminate as much negativity from my speech as possible!
What words will you say today? Will they empower you to do things that you have never done before?
Will you love yourself with the words you use. Please don’t limit what you are capable of tomorrow by talking badly about yourself today.
Words can lift us or bring us down.
What will your words do? Think about it!
