Something to Shout About

by Susan Reichert, Editor-in-Chief
Do you give yourself pep talks daily? We all need a cheerleader.Who better to cheer us on than ourselves? Yes, family can, but the first person should be us.
In order to feel good we need inspiration. We have all been to meetings where they inspire us to do greater things and when we come out of there we feel like we are walking on air. By the time we get home, someone has let the air out and we are back down on the ground…pecking around.
If only we could feel like we did in those meetings, we could jump tall buildings, move mountains and soar with the eagles.
Well I have news for you. You can. Just sit yourself down, and give yourself a pep talk. Tell yourself how good you are, how wonderful you are and that you can do anything. Just tell yourself that everyone you meet is going to have his or her hearts open to you and that everything you endeavor to do is going to be good.
You may not feel it the first few times you do it, but if you work at it, every day, eventually you will believe yourself. You will notice you walk straighter even with a skip almost in your step. People will be smiling back at you because you are smiling at them. Your heart will feel lighter because the baggage has been moved out and been replaced with wonderful accolades.
So start now, be your very own cheerleader and see for yourself, soon you will feel every day just like you did when you left that meeting.
