I love this one! Self talk, the words we say to ourselves, is so very important in our lives. I learned this a long time ago as I used to do some pretty negative talking to myself. But I found out, through various circumstances and trials, that this is just not a wise or a good thing to do.
You’ve got to be your own very best friend in this world! No one, besides God, is going to be able to talk to you in a positive way the way you can. Let’s just say, for a whole day, the moment you get up in the morning, you say nothing but negative things to yourself. I’ll bet, by the end of the day, you are pretty stressed out and sad. Then, the next day, the moment you get up, begin to say positive things to yourself. I KNOW you will see and feel a difference!
That’s just the way God made us. Proverbs 16:24 says – “Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.” Now I realize that verse can mean the words we say to others are like this, but I have a sneaking suspicion the words we say to ourselves can also be as sweet as honey to our OWN soul and health to our OWN bones.
Go ahead? Try it today. Sweet talk yourself! 🙂
