Encouragement Today and Motivation Monday
Today’s Encouragement is a reminder of the importance of having humility and confidence within yourself.
All too many times we get so busy pleasing others, helping others, supporting others, and even enabling others that we forget who we are and get lost in the busyness of life.
If I was to ask you what is your favorite ________________ you name the item, can you tell me what it is?
Do you remember what your favorite show, movie, song, book, or activity is? When was the last time you did it? When was the last time you enjoyed it?
I believe it is all to easy to lose track of what is important to us and in the process of forgetting this, we lose confidence in our own identity.
I believe we become so programmed to go about our day in the such a routined manner that we just go through the motions without giving any thought to what we “really” want to do. We forget what is important to us. We forget what we like and what we enjoy doing? Not because we knowingly or willingly do it, but because it just happens.
My friend, it is vitally important that you make a conscious effort to insure this doesn’t happen. It is important to remain humble but confident in order to remain strong and happy within yourself.
“Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.” —Norman Vincent Peale (success.com)
When you establish this balance you will regain peace, strength, confidence, and happiness within your life again.
If you are finding yourself less than happy and insecure in decisions you are making and indecisive in choosing activities, check your confidence level in who you are.
My friend, it is critically important to not forget you are just as important as other people are in your life.
You have to be sure to fill your cup daily in order to remove anything from it to give to others. Take care of yourself so you are able to continue to take care of others.
Do not give away so much of you that you do not even know who you are any longer. This is not beneficial to anyone you love or are helping and it is really not helpful to you.
Take time daily to insure you are taking care of yourself or you will not be able to help others.
