I know I’ve been out of the loop for a week but I’m glad to finally be making my return to the world. It was a rough couple of weeks for me. Thank you to everyone who sent e-mails asking if I was OK. Those were greatly appreciated and made me smile.
On this Monday morning I wanted to share a message with everyone. Always be proud of yourself. Every challenge that you conquer and every feat you never thought you would do is something to celebrate and remember.
Be proud of what you have accomplished. Be proud of the person you are. Be proud of the dreams you dream because one day those dreams will become a reality. Be proud because every day you will do something better than you did the day before.
Being proud is more than just a feeling. Being proud is showing self-respect. We would never allow someone else to disrespect us so why not shut down the self disrespect and just be proud. Every victory will not always be a “big” one but that doesn’t mean you can’t be happy that you weathered the storm.
Obstacles create learning experiences which really gives us reasons to be proud. Even if things don’t turn out the way you expected them, be proud because you still pushed through.
Be proud because you had the courage to start…especially when many others didn’t even try!
