Talk with Your Inner Child

Mother talking to girlI saw an awesome post on Facebook on what to say to your child. This is some practical stuff you can use to build up your own children. Interestingly, the post was modified from it’s original to suggest you use these phrases to talk to your inner child, too. It’s a way to re-parent our inner child to give him or her the affirmations we never got as kids. It’s healing stuff.

(I would give credit to the person who created the list if I knew who it was. I’m trusting, though, that the person who made the list would just be happy more people are reading it and that it is positively impacting more lives.)
