What we say to ourselves has immense importance. Sometimes we don’t realize what messages we are sending to ourselves as they have become habitual and are expressed in subtle ways, although their effects are anything but subtle. What are you saying to yourself today? How is it being communicated? In what way are you communicating it? Words, body language, discouraging thoughts? We should be our own best friend, truly. We have the power to both crush and tend to our spirits. God’s grace shows we are beloved in spite of, no matter what, even if, yada-yada-period-end-of-sentence. So. Please. Tell yourself some good news about yourself today. (MK)
