I believe in encouragement. I believe that everything I say - everything we say, or don't say - has the power to lift up or tear down. And even believing in encouragement - I don’t always remember to practice it.
I need to remind myself that it’s not just “I believe in you,” it’s the thanks for setting the alarm/I know you’re working hard/I appreciate that you put your dishes in the sink - the I see you, I acknowledge you, I appreciate you things. Everyday, everyday things.
And it’s also “I believe in you.” because I do.
