Sometimes you have to encourage yourself

Most of the time I talk about encouraging kids in a variety of ways to boost their self-esteem. But what do you do if you’re not a kid anymore or you don’t have someone around who consistently encourages you? Create a folder or box (this can be physical or digital) and keep cards, notes, and momentos that make you smile and keep you going. On those days, in those times, when you are tired of the same-old-same-old or you are afraid of something new, go through your folder or box and remind yourself that you are special and important and of all the people who believe in you.

And a big THANK YOU to all the fans—you are an encouragement to me everyday!
