REVIEW OF THE WEEK:
Heart full of Jesus - 5-stars, Your Minnesota Friend
Okay, Trish, I had to stop what I was doing and message you after hearing your review of the week the other day because wow. Not only did you have the guts to reveal to your audience a 1-star review, but you totally owned it. Everything you speak of comes from your heart. A heart full of compassion, kindness, and you said it, JESUS!!! And maybe that's not for everybody, but for girls like me and I'm sure many others, it's exactly waht we need in a world like this. A world where comparison, materilaism and hustling to the point of exahustion is all too common. Being a full-time interior deisnger, having my own photography biz and coaching college tennis at the age of 23 is a little crazy, I'll admit. It wasn't until this past July I realized I needed to slow dow nadn take care of myslf. Unfortunately, it took me being sick for amonty with mono for me to wake the hell up and make a change in my lifestyle. My competitive personality didn't know how to slow down until I was forced to. There have also been tiems where I felt like a failure because i didn't meet my own unrealistici expectations and it weighed on me more than it should have. The Confidence Podcast has helped me redirect my priorities that have been englected for too long and stand still in the love os Jesus. So Trish, THANK YOU for being transparent, sahring your story and helping me get back to the girl God created me to be. You are changing lives, but haters gonna hate. 10 starts. Blessings, your Minnesotan friend.

or checking out my feed on Facebook or Instagram this week.
When I have a word on me, with me at all times, I feel it. It goes beyond just being a thought- it becomes part of me, part of my identity, and in my bones.
THE POWER OF WORDS
The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. (NIV)
Words kill, words give life; they're either poison or fruit - you choose (MSG)
Words give life or death.
Word choice - even the difference between "I" and "Trish" matter:
Psychologist Ethan Kross of the University of Michigan led the work, studying the pronouns people use when they talk to themselves silently, inside their minds.
"What we find," Kross says, "is that a subtle linguistic shift — shifting from 'I' to your own name — can have really powerful self-regulatory effects." https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2014/10/…
Koss decided to do an experiment to see what would happen if nonfamous people were instructed to try the ...
