Words of Encouragement for Courage & Strength When You Need It: Things to Say to Yourself

1. I can’t control everything that happens to me, but I can control the way I respond to what happens. In my response is my power.

2. I am the guardian of my mind, body, and soul. I protect myself from negativity. No darkness can dim my light.

3. I am always doing my best, and my best is always getting better.

4. I take my life one step at a time. My next step doesn’t need to be a big one.

5. I don’t need to have all the answers. I have the courage to honor the questions before the answers come.

6. With enough time, effort, and dedication I can learn what I need to succeed.

7. I am strong enough and wise enough to grow from my pain.

8. I can use my mind to generate the feelings I want more of.

9. My dreams are possible and I am capable of living into them.

10. I am more than my small thoughts. I am more than fear and worry. I am so much more.

11. With enough faith, action, and love I can beat doubt, defiance, and division.

12. Reality is bendable to my will. I am responsible for the reality I choose to participate in.

13. I can create real, positive change no matter my current situation.

14. All the resources I need to win are within.

15. I am capable of more than I can even dream.

16. My worth is immeasurable.

17. The purpose of my life is to live — freely, vibrantly, joyously, lovingly.

You’re more than a body, more than a mind. You’re a soul full of stardust and mystery and sometimes that looks and feels a lot like darkness.

All the while I’m still taking take of myself, then cancer came back after 22 years with one of my sisters🥹😢😭! Helping with her and this morning going to the hospital with the love of my life😩🥺😢😭! I know God is not allowing all of this nothing! I know there’s a PURPOSE! I have to keep telling myself, Tricia, you’re not alone! He’s there ALL THE WHILE🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾! Praising, Pressing, Praying, and Pushing while The Lord is Pulling me THROUGH it all👏🏾🙏🏾🙌🏾🙏🏾!

    That last one was eerie, something about feeling and looking like darkness, thank God I’m a child of the King and his light shines within me. Amen
    I liked the 1st one about not being able to control what happens to me but choosing my reaction to what happens to me, that’s where the power is.

    I am grateful for my family. I was going through life challenges and don’t know what to do anymore.
    I sat myself down and I started telling myself God is bigger than any situations. I am being encouraged for reading a couple of the word of encouragement on this page and that made me feel a bit relieved.
    God bless us all…
