There will always be voices.
Voices that tell you what you are.
Where you’ll go.
Who you can be.
There will always be voices, and only you can choose which voices you believe.
Last week I was playing with a toddler who asked me to help him set up his train tracks in a circle. Later, while he was playing, he said to me in his sweet baby voice, “You’re so nice, Maney, you’re so nice.” And for some reason, his kind little words made my heart grow so big.
That was a voice I wanted to listen to.
He was much kinder than I am to myself.
There will always be voices, voices telling us that we aren’t worthy of love, or that our plans will fail, or we aren’t needed or wanted, or that we’re useless and worthless and bad.
Banish those voices, my dear readers. You are wonderful.
