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.




I don’t know about you, but I just hate when some people “put on” fake enthusiasm and friendship when they talk to you. Personally if someone doesn’t like me or are not interested in having anything to do with me, that they were just honest and didn’t “fake” friendship.

Anyone who knows me will know I’m an honest and trustworthy person, so will understand when I say that “what you see, is what you get” with me. i.e. You’ll not get any “fake” enthusiasm from me when it comes to anything…you’ll soon know if I’m not happy!

So please don’t fake a friendship with anyone, because believe me the person will know and to be honest in my experience, someone who tries to fake a friendship with you is not someone you really want as a “friend”.Fake-Friend

Being sad with the right people is better than being happy with the wrong ones ~ Philippos

So true.

If you’re sad or upset, you need people around you who will support you and care for you. Sadly however I’m sure we’ve all found ourselves with people who don’t seem to care about us when we’re most in need of support. But have you realised these are not the people you should be calling “true friends”?

Therefore make sure those you call true friends are people you know and trust will be there for you in your times of need, because if they’re not, don’t leave it until you need a friend most, to find out they don’t really care for you.

True friends will be there for you during your lowest times as well as during your happiest moments, I hope you’ve found some true friends!
