Once in awhile I run across a blog or essay that really causes me to stop and really breathe it in. Reading a good message can cause a shift in me, ignite a eureka, or cause a deep resounding “yes”, perhaps moving me to tears or giving me courage that day to make a change I didn’t know I had to make intellectually, but at the level of the heart, I did. With all the uncertainty in the world it’s wonderful so many people are sharing their thoughts and hopes. Blogging can be a way of keeping conversations alive and bringing people together.
Yep. That’s a message many of us are giving ourselves every day.
We have a negative voice in our head that is constantly judging, criticizing, shaming and blaming and “shoulding” on us.
I stopped fighting with this voice a long time ago.
Now when she speaks, I laugh at her and say: “Yes, you are right. I am a total mess. A complete f$#k up. and you know, what? I love myself anyway.”
My friend, the late, great Wayne Dyer always said: “Don’t believe every thought that you have.”
He is 100% right.
