The Power of No! I have learned how to accept the word “No!” There are books written about how to never accept no. People have created movements to never accept the word no, but what happens to a generation of people who can’t accept the word no even if it’s in their best interest?

I began complimenting myself the way that I compliment others.I started speaking life into myself, my looks, my thoughts, my abilities are all worthy of love, respect and blessings.
