Here’s the first of several posts on Do It Yourself (DIY) Joy.
One way to be happy is to talk nicely to yourself. Words have great power. Using positive words when talking about yourself empowers you–words like smart, kind, resourceful, beautiful. On the flip side, when you talk about yourself using words like stupid, worthless, ugly, fat, and incompetent you can bring yourself down so low you’re knee-high to a grasshopper.
Try looking in a mirror and saying both sets of words to yourself. See how you feel after each.
The forward thinking people at Think TV are promoting Talk Nicely To Yourself Week, April 11 – 17. We think it’s an excellent idea.
