Yesterday I wrote about self-confidence and smiling…important pieces of our personal style. Some of you left such sweet and encouraging comments...thank you so much. One reader said to me, “I guess I could be more confident, if I would just stop listening to those voices in my head which tear me down!”
Controlling internal messages is very important. When I start to hear them too often, I will just make myself say STOP!
The voice I currently hear the most during any given day says:
“Don’t eat it if you are not hungry!”
“Be slow to speak. Quick to listen. Slow to become angry” (I teach teenagers…there are many times during a day I can over-react if I allow myself to go there)
“Only think on today…tomorrow has enough worries of its own.”

I really try to stop the negative voices on a consistent basis…when I first hear one of those messages, I will immediately tell myself…YOU DON’T NEED THAT! I pounce on it like a leopard and shut it down!
Now, go look in the mirror and tell yourself just how amazing you are! Have a wonderful Wednesday!
