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.

For example...
Frame A

I can say:
I am a hoarder
I am overwhelmed
I procrastinate
I can't manage my surroundings
I am a failure
I don't want anyone to realize I'm not lovable
I hide
I become paralyzed
I can't change


Frame B

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!

I choose Frame #2

    emoticon on reframing things to see what could be negatives in a more positive light! You *are* a good person, and you *do* deserve to be happy!

    Keep up the good work! emoticon

    Well done!

    I am also learning to choose my frames, that there is a positive spin to any situation, and that is the one I want to choose.

    I think I can, I think I can...
