Are you looking for simple ways to encourage your heart and nourish your soul?
In the last while I’ve given you some ideas which will hopefully inspire you to implement them in your own life, and over the coming weeks I’ll share some others with you.
So here’s today’s suggestion:
Be your own best friend
Many times people feel dissatisfied because they don’t feel appreciated by others, which is completely understandable. Everyone needs to feel valued by others, but we must make sure our own happiness doesn’t depend on other people encouraging us, as what happens if we don’t get any encouragement? The answer is, we feel letdown and discouraged.
So rather than count on others for encouragement, take matters into your own hands, and motivate yourself as you would others – Say things like “I know this is difficult but I know I can do it,” or, “Just think, it I put a lot of effort into this now, it’s soon all be done.”
Love yourself, encourage yourself, because you can never rely on other’s being there for you when you need them.
