"Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen." (Ephesians 4:29)
Do you talk to yourself? What do you say to yourself? Are you encouraging or discouraging? Do you tell yourself you can or "can't" do something? When you do tell yourself you can do something is it with positive conviction?
I was recently at a class, for a volunteer group I work with, about "self talk" and how we talk to others. It is amazing how "positive" talk can help another person and our own feelings/work. Sometimes it helps convince us God IS with us and we CAN do this. Sometimes a "positive" talk can remind us to thank God, and others, for the good things happening - even in the midst of bad things happening around us.
Something to think about - especially as we all, pretty much, talk to ourselves. Our we being a "benefit" to those who listen? Are we being a "benefit" to ourselves?

Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
