For 2017

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Remember a while back I talked about being a positive 'self whisper-er' for or to yourself? That you had to talk to yourself on a daily basis to change yourself - positively. (It's not easy, you slip and fall, but you have to get back in there and continue on.)

Well, Montel Williams had a show on that very subject.
Go to this website if you're interested:

He actually added more ideas. His guest said to actually look at yourself in the mirror - at your own pupils - and talk to yourself. Describe yourself, but not in negatives or positives terms - don't judge yourself. For example if your eyes are green, look at the mirror at your pupils (your actual self) and say I have green eyes - not my green eyes are too small or too big. Just talk about yourself without judging yourself.

When you do this notice you are standing taller and feeling better about yourself.

When you don't look at yourself when you talk about yourself - you start to worry more what others think of you. Feel your body.

Kind of a neat exercise.

Don't judge yourself or criticize yourself - just be who you are. Make friends with yourself.

I talked already about Kung Fu Panda - well here is Personal Development for the Book Smart's take on it:

7 Great Life Lessons I Learned From Kung Fu Panda
Posted: 20 Jun 2008 07:08 AM CDT
So… I finally caught Kung Fu Panda yesterday after hearing all the raving reviews about the movie.
And boy am I glad I did!
Why?
Because there were so many great life lessons embedded in the movie!
Here are those I caught… Feel free to leave a comment to add on… (To avoid spoilers, I did not elaborate on the points)
1) You can be the Unlikely Hero
2) Don’t be afraid to pursue your dreams
3) There is no secret…
4) You just have to believe in yourself…
5) Even if nobody else believes in you…
6) Don’t impose your expectations and values on others
7) Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today? Today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present

Chatty - There really is no secret - just be yourself.
