I have decided my attitude is my own worst enemy. So I have been reading positive
articles by other Sparkers, comments by those whom I am in contact with, like PAM
and MICHELLE and CINDY and many others...also CAZ sent me a great blog yesterday
that sent me off on this thinking expedition. I shared it with others because it was so

Why we allow ourselves to talk to us as we do, so often, when we would not allow someone
else to berate us, or put us down, but we are actually MEAN to our own self, is beyond me.

David said yesterday that I am harsher on myself, than I would ever let anyone. For some
reason, I expect more out of me than me can perform, to be honest.

I have no idea why I am so hard on me and expect perfection, and no deviation is allowed
from the narrow line I am balancing on???

Therefore, I sat me down and had a talk with me. Me, myself and I have decided to be
positive and find a positive point in everything that happens. I have decided to approach
my goals from a positive side and instead of being upset with me for slipping, to be nice
to me and sell myself a few extra minutes on the bicycle and move on along with a compliment to myself for never giving up.

I can feel for others, share with them, because I have been there, and I always want to
lift others up, help them lift themselves up, and be positive and makes me feel
better, maybe whomever reads this will agree.............
Let's give ourselves a break, make a list of what needs to be accomplished, then go after
completing that list in a REASONABLE length of time....

Love n hugs,

  Well said - and very true. Most of us would never think of allowing others to speak to us the way we speak to ourselves. I wonder why that is? It's a challenge to "catch" yourself at it and turn it into something positive instead, but worth the effort. A few months back I started really making an effort to do this and it's made a huge difference.

Good luck!

    I would say I'm pretty positive about things and life. I love that you had a "talk" with yourself to get yourself into a positive attitude.

    Yeah, DARLENE, be good to yourself more often. And have another drink of water on me, remember the water and keep life fluid

    I think it's really important that we are kind to ourselves.
