A little affirmation/encouragement for everyone.
This is from Louise Hay.
I Am the Very Best I Can Be
Praise yourself and tell yourself how absolutely wonderful you are.
Don’t make yourself wrong. When you do something new, don’t beat
yourself up because you’re not a pro at it the first time.
Practice. Learn what does work and what doesn’t work. Next time you do
something new or different, something you are just learning, be there
for yourself. Don’t tell yourself what was wrong: tell yourself what
was right with it.
Praise yourself. Build yourself up, so that the next time you do
it, you really feel good about it. Each time you will be better and
better and better. Soon you will have a new skill of some sort.
Remember, you are doing the best you can at this moment. If you
knew better, if you had more understanding and awareness, you would do
it differently. But since you’re doing your best, you need to applaud
yourself for your efforts.
