What follows is an excerpt from my book Bliss Or Bust: Uplifting Thoughts.
Whatever you like about yourself, appreciate that specifically and often. The most important thing is that you feel good. Take it easy on yourself.
Pay attention to your emotions and do something about it when you notice you aren’t feeling good — change your focus! Be open and expansive about allowing yourself to feel good. It’s not easy to let go of how you’ve been thinking, but it’s worth the effort if you want different results.
You are where you are, but you can start again at any time. It doesn’t matter what happened before. What matters is what happens next, and your results going forward are directly related to feeling good now.
