New Beginnings!!!

Do ever wish you could have a fresh start sometimes?

I mean really, an ENTIRE new start. I know I do. Sometimes, we make mistakes , get discouraged, or just carry the baggage of the past with us. All of that weight drags us down and keeps us from fully embracing a bright future.

So join me in making this month a new beginnings. You have permission to change. Don’t let other people box you in and don’t box yourself in either. Change is a natural part of life. If you’re not changing, you’re not growing. And growth is good, so change is too.

Paul, in the Bible’s book of Philippians said this:

“I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead…”
(Philippians 3:13)

Honestly, there are some things (good and bad) that you and I should choose move on from in order to focus on the future. Let go of past hurts, past failures, past pain, and even past successes. Imagine driving a car spending the entire time looking in your rearview mirror. Eventually you would crash. It’s okay to glance into your rear view mirror every now and then, but the majority of your focus should be on what’s ahead of you.

Although I’ve been doing well, I’ve decided to make this month a fresh start because I want to be better and do more to help others. Will you join me?

This month's Glow e-zine is dedicated to New Beginnings! Send me your stories of change as you do this! (jen@help-my-self-esteem.com)

Back to the School....So What Now?


Well, it's that time of year again. You're either really excited or wishing summer would last another 6 months...

Many of you reading this are going back to school: middle school, high school, college, and even grad school. Whether you are excited about it (I was a nerd so I loved school :) or you wish summer would last another 6 months, I want to encourage you to make the best of this school year. The way to do that is to set goals.

People generally do their best work when they are striving towards something meaningful, when they have positive expectations, and something to look forward to. I want to challenge you to choose 1 personal goal for this school year that means a lot to you. Make it realistic but also make it a fun challenge!

For instance, you may make want to get higher grades so you could make that a goal. Or you could make it a goal to smile and say “Hi” to at least 1 stranger a day. You never know how a smile can change another person’s mood. Maybe you want to volunteer more? Start a club with your friends?

And don’t be afraid of disappointment or not meeting your goal either. Sometimes it’s more about the journey than about the destination. So don’t play your life not lose, PLAY TO WIN! Set goals this year. And tweet me @jennifersarpong and let me know what your goals are this year! @jennifersarpong and let me know what your goals are this year!

THE SELF-ESTEEM MUSIC PLAYLIST ON YOUTUBE I have days when I just want to sit back and listen to good music. I used to find it hard to do that, because so many songs on the radio are negative. They have a great beat, but demeaning lyrics.

Self-Esteem and Love Affirmations of the Month

JOURNAL ENTRY: Here are your 2 affirmations for the month. Take 5 minutes to write both of these down, and say them out loud to yourself once a day. You will see positive results and change because you become your thoughts! .



1. I Can't Always Choose My Circumstances but I Can Choose My Response. Life is 2% what happens to me and 98% how I respond to it.

No matter the circumstance, I let God's love

Guide, direct and inspire me.

2. I Have Permission to Change I don't have to put myself in a "box" or limit my potential. As I grow I will change and that is okay. Change is a good thing. If there is anything or any behavior in my life that I know deep down really needs to change, I will change it. Simple as that.






Finally, I have some free gifts to give you....
