Clearing out the old stuff from the house.
Some of my old papers.
I'll be sharing some of them.
Mostly good for a laugh.
This one still makes a lot of sense - some good thoughts for Spark People making good changes.
Please remember, these are assumptions I think most of us hold on some level, some internal messages we can well do without:
You must be loved and approved of by everyone.
You must do perfectly in all respects.
A person who acts badly is a bad person.
It is terrible, horrible, awful and catastrophic when things aren't going the way you want them to.
Your happiness is caused by other events or people rather than by how you think or talk to yourself.
If something is unpleasant, you should be preoccupied and continually upset over it.
Things that have happened in the past are all-important, need to be continually worried about, and limit your possibilities for the future.
People and things should be different from what they are, and it is catastrophic if perfect solutions cannot be immediately found.
Behaviors that worked for someone else, or which formerly worked for you, are what must be followed.
And I'll close on a positive note, not an irrational belief:
Tomorrow is a new day.
