Which Frame Will I Choose?
Saturday, December 11, 2010
I've been pondering...
If we are what we do and who we believe we are, we have choices in how to frame what we see.
I can say:
I am a hoarder
I am overwhelmed
I can't manage my surroundings
I am a failure
I don't want anyone to realize I'm not lovable
I become paralyzed
I can't change
I can say:
I cannot always see
I have been acquiring and keeping lots of things
I have not been willing to let go of my things
I get anxious at the thought of releasing things
I get anxious when I try to release my things
I have let the anxiety overwhelm me to the point of not wanting to even look at my choices up to this point
I am beginning to realize keeping everything is getting in the way of other things I might want to do
I want to do those things
I don't want to hide anymore, to stop hiding and do the things I want to do
I am willing to risk making some changes in my lifestyle
Although I feel anxious about making changes I believe I could do this in tiny baby steps
I don't have to do this perfectly
I can make a mistake
I do need to become consistent
I will have to change what I think about myself
I am not a failure
I am a good person
I deserve to be happy
What a different way of seeing my world!
