The things we tell ourselves determine how we act and feel. For a few hours today notice what you tell yourself about yourself and about your life. If your thoughts are negative, you likely feel negative and then choose actions that support feeling negative. If you can balance and counter those thoughts with positive truths, then your actions and feelings can change, too, which will reinforce positive thoughts. The things we tell ourselves are so important! So, tell yourself many true positive things today and notice how your outlook changes.
