#27 - Word of Encouragement
"You are the best you have ever been, and the worst you will ever be." - Author unknown This quote is a huge encouragement to me, and I hope it can be to you as well. The first part… "You are the best you have ever been"... makes us acknowledge how far we have come. What do we know now that we didn't know before? What experiences have we been able to learn from? The second part… "and the worst you will ever be"... makes you look toward the future with expectation and a resolve to improve. This quote changes the perspective from a negative one to a positive one, For example, "How could I have made a mistake?" to "Before I didn't even know something was wrong. How can I fix this for the future?". "You are the best you have ever been, and the worst you will ever be." I hope you find encouragement from this quote as well.
