Good morning everyone!  Happy Tuesday.  When was the last time someone told you how wonderful you were?  Did you say thank you or did you look at your feet?  Praise is something we have a hard time with.  Why do we have so much trouble valuing ourselves and recognizing our worth.  Why can't we just say thank you?

Today's quote is, "Accept praise with a humble heart."  When our children were little we praised them for taking their first steps.  As they got older we praised them for their artistic scribbles, the check pluses on their homework, how tall they've gotten and every little thing they did.

Teen years brought self consciousness, young adulthood brought self doubt and adulthood brought self deprecation.  What happened from childhood to teens that created a steady downhill slide in seeing ourselves as wonderful beings?

If you are being praised, accept it!  If someone is telling you, you are wonderful or what you created is wonderful or your meal was fantastic, say thank you.  When we are humble we recognize our human frailties and inadequacies but that doesn't mean we cannot be proud of our accomplishments.

The next time you are told how great you are~accept it, smile and say thank you!

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

  1. Thank you for this Amy. A good friend of mine praised me on the phone last night saying how terrific he thought my more cards from my photography is and I couldn’t accept te compliment . Always being criticized end never praised as a child and even now it is. Is difficult to accept .
