Speak Softly

When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do words of kindness and love spring to your lips or are your first thoughts harsh and unrealistic? We are our worst critics when it comes to hair, skin, complexion, weight, etc., but what we say about ourselves translates to how we end up feeling deep inside. Your inner feelings are what tell the world how you want others to view you. It’s also how those watching—like your children—learn to speak to themselves.

So speak thoughtful words of kindness and love—and mean them. You deserve the best of what you have to give.
