An affair. Corruption. Debt. Drug lords. Broken governmental promises. Carnage. Critics. Conflict. War. Disease. Disaster. 

No wonder we feel so punished. No wonder we struggle to find the words to echo our unique brilliance and uniqueness into a void filled with fear and rage. 

Check in with yourself. How is this tone of voice and world perspective infiltrating your own inner dialogue?  

How often do you congratulate yourself? Or only after the world has congratulated you?

How often do you give yourself love? Or only when someone else sees you as lovable?

How often do you feel you are headed in the right direction with confidence within each step? Or are you always second guessing as the world second guesses every other success?
