Q: How to befriend my own worst enemy

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

The article was so darn true that I don't dare quote it here. I'd have to add the entire thing, word-for-word. Instead I'll encourage any blog visitors to check it out and decide for themselves.

I have no idea why I beat myself up, but even when I succeed I find something to harp on. I'm trying to be a positive person - and it DOES help me feel better - but I'm still negative towards myself.

Grrr!

So, here goes nothing:

Hey, Thighs?! You are big AND beautiful. Sure, you rub together when I really start moving, but you've never let me fall. In fact, I am thrilled to see the new definition you have.

(Ignores the little voice that is pointing out other faults that my thighs possess...)

And you, my Impatient Tendencies? You know, you give an aura of "get 'er done!" that people have come to count on. Slowing down might be a good idea, but always pushing forward is something that can be channeled and focused. Let's see what we can do together!

(OMG, that was almost inspiring!)

And the "Sense That I Have To Do More"... well, that's good, too. After all, should I ever find an hour that isn't already planned to the minute, I'll have a working list of things that I would love to do / try.

Hmmm. As a closing point, it would seem that this sort of stuff looks like good additions for my Gratitude Journal... just as soon as I get better at journaling.

    You know, I just started reading this blog, and from my perspective, you sound like a pretty together and amazing person. Whenever I have a whole hour planned to the minute, and then stick to the plan, I feel accomplished. :)

    I get the feeling you have the determination to accomplish whatever you set out to do.
