“If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together…
There is something you must always remember.
You are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart…
I’ll always be with you.” – Christopher Robin to Winnie the Pooh
We often undervalue ourselves and our abilities. You may not feel like you’re very brave when there’s something that really scares you, but you may also surprise yourself that you can get through whatever comes your way with God by your side. Sometimes it’s not until we come across a difficult period in our lives that we see how strong we actually are. When something comes really easy to us, we often take our abilities for granted – but you are smarter than you think. Though you may only see the people who can do things that you can’t, what you don’t see is those things that make you different from everyone else.
Game Plan: Repeat this little mantra to yourself when you need it. Write it out and stick it in your wallet, on your fridge, or bathroom mirror. Don’t undervalue your own strength.
