Confidence Can Be Yours At Each Moment

“I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence, but it comes from within. It is there all the time.

~ Anna Freud

Confidence Can Be Yours At Each Moment

by Natalie Manor

Think of all the confident people you know. Isn’t there something just different about them? The way they walk, talk, hold themselves, how they get involved.

The characteristics of confident people are numerous. The difference between you and them may be that they are acting in a confident way and you are not.

Take one of the confident characteristics you think a confident person has and act that way all day today. Stride into a room. Sit easily and with grace. Speak with emphasis. Shake hands firmly.  By the end of the day you will feel differently. You will be feeling like a confident person.

Confidence is a practice. Each day add another characteristic. Pretty soon you will be striding confidently through your life and you will wonder what took you so long to catch on!

Moms, Happy Mother’s Day!

“A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world.  It knows no law, no pity, it dates all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.”

This Sunday is Mother’s Day.  Take some time to appreciate the woman who brought you into this life.

Mom, thank you for your guidance, love and wisdom!
