Thursday After Ash Wednesday
Negative people criticize and compare us. It may come as a direct hit (you're stupid!) or be subltle (your sister always makes me proud). When we're attacked like this, our predominant thoughts become: "I'm not good enough" and "I can't." Positive people encourage us to be real and genuine. They remind us of our strengths, recognize our greatness, and encourage us to strive for what is best for us. They help us say: "I am good enough" and "I can do it."
As you begin this lenten season, claim your power. Say: "This is who I am. If you cannot accept me, leave me alone and move on."
