Well, if you didn't know, the month of February is "International Boost Your Self-Esteem Month" and I wonder how many of us have even heard of that. This is exciting and should be stressed and built upon each year all year if you as me. But, what exactly is self-esteem exactly? Self-esteem is the confidence in knowing your self- worth and the talent or abilities you have. Self-esteem can be molded from many forms, events and individuals such as friends, family members, peers, society and the environment we live in. This is how we start to take form with our personality traits.

My favorite way to this is by speaking words of life into my mind, body and soul by using words of affirmation!Words of or phrases of affirmations are small statements of confidence, empowerment and encouragement.
