In case some of my SparkFriends think I'm going through a crisis of sorts, what with the sudden increase in blogging - let me assure you everything is fine. This is part of a weekly assignment where we are blogging on the theme of habits .
Or the lack of them. Or the forming of them.
I picked rewarding myself as the habit I intended to work on.
There's just one problem with this. I am the most self-critical human being in existence. I am merciless. I indulge in the worst kind of introspection, like a glutton for self-flagellation.
How can I ever practice the habit of rewarding myself when there is never anything worth rewading in my own eyes?
Others can heap praise over me for this or that, compliment me, reward me - but until I find myself worthy of it, it all means very little.
Perception is a funny thing. Perhaps that would have been a better habit to choose to work on.
