Today’s thought from Hazelden is:
When you do something you are proud of, dwell on it a little, praise yourself for it.
Each one of us is very good at something. Maybe it’s baseball or tennis where we display talent. Maybe we’re good in math or at giving reports. A few people are talented at being good listeners or helpful friends. To recognize our own talents we may need help from others. It’s always so much easier to see our faults, or the ways we don’t meet our own expectations.

To accept praise — better yet, to quietly give it to ourselves — is a sign of healthy growth.Totally needed that…. so go pat yourself on the back (as I will) and let’s have a great Sunday…. no coffee – too late, but perhaps a “spot” of tea…..
