Thanks for the article. And thanks to Adrienne for the reminder to forgive ourselves for human errors and not to blame ourselves for stuff that happens that is beyond our control. I still make these cognitive errors and denigrate myself at most any chance I get.
It's a good article. It reminds me of the beginnings of cognitive restructuring. Seeing how you can take steps to reduce anxiety through action. For me it's tiny little steps.
Though I'm a terrific administrator, I am absolutely the worst at keeping track of bills and filing. I am finally making my system and trying to get through a backlog of stuff that I've been putting off. I consider this no different than relearning how to eat and exercise for health. I am also trying to be more forgiving of my limitations and remember that I've had a lot of incredible drains on my time lately that could not be avoided. You have to be able to forgive yourself for things, and especially those beyond your control.
Thanks for the reminder!

Here's an interesting article I read today. It has some points about building self esteem if you are a person who thinks your lazy, but the principals can be applied to any negative word you have going through your mind.
The article is called: Are You Lazy or Are There Valid Reasons for Your Procrastination?
