I ran across this great advice on The Daily WD and had to share it.

Wise Words: Applaud Yourself
“The person who seeks all their applause from outside has their happiness in another’s keeping.” —Claudius Claudianus
Do you ever find yourself disappointed that one of your friends didn’t notice your new haircut or that few people congratulated you on your amazing solo in the choir? Stop seeking validation from others. If you think that you look fabulous or know that you did a killer job on that last project, so be it. You’re all that really matters anyway. (And believe me, others sometimes just don’t give praise where it’s due!) —Crystal Tate
