Blog Challenge - Day 15

Sunday, December 15, 2013

15. True or false: I feel good about myself. Elaborate.

Ugh. You know, it depends on the day. I mean, I mostly feel good about myself... and then there are the days where I wonder what the heck am I doing? It's pretty easy to beat myself up and it's usually over something small or avoidable.

I know that I should be my best friend. I tend to put the bar pretty high and disappoint myself, being fully aware that I was probably setting an unreasonable standard. I don't know why I do this. It's always been a part of me.

I am better about it these days, but it still happens.


No word on the test score yet. It feels like it's been a lot longer than a week!

Patrick and I worked our last parade on Friday night. It was the first parade in a long time where I actually felt cold (too much standing around, me thinks).

The neighbors stopped over last night and we decorated the holiday tree. It was a really fun night with wine, home-brewed beer, Bailey's, and too much good food. emoticon
"White Christmas" was on the television and it was a very festive event. The tree looks fabulous, as always!

The upcoming week has a bit of anxiety in it. We exchange small gifts with the members of our bowling team, and we have yet to do our shopping! EEK! I'm not sure that we even know what we're getting for everyone!


Ah, well. Here's hoping that it all works out! Enjoy the rest of the weekend, SparkFriends.

    My husband caught me with the negative self-talk one day last summer. He actually scolded me! "Don't say that! That's terrible!" I was stunned. And I cried. I didn't even hear myself saying the words. How scary is that? It was an eye-opening moment for me.

    One day I was talking to myself about some challenge of that particular day and I really paid attention to the words I was choosing (and they were not positive words!) I realized that I would never ever speak to a cherished friend like I was speaking to myself and that was the day that I started treating myself in the same way that I treat the people I love.

    And it's pretty easy to do! I'm important!!

    I'm still working on getting rid of my perfectionist attitudes but I do like myself.

    It finally is warming up here and melting some snow. Thank goodness!!

    I have done no shopping yet. Nothing for Christmas - so unlike me!! LOL.
