From now on I will be nice to myself!

Thursday, September 06, 2012

Sometimes I am my own worst enemy..well, I may as well be honest and admit that most of the time I am my worst enemy. For example, I woke up and immediately starting thinking about work. One thought that runs through my head repeatedly is me sitting in a meeting with a lot of other people not having a clue about what is going on. It actually makes my heart palpitate when I do this to myself, and I do it all the time. So, I am really trying to give myself the pep talks and this morning one of the Sparkcoach assignments was to visualize myself giving a good friend advice and encouragement, and then to imagine that you are actually saying that to yourself. I really liked this because I have a tendency to beat myself up a bit, or be a bit self-deprecating to make others feel comfortable or laugh. I realized that I have the ability to give wonderful encouragement to others, but not myself! No more. I am really going to focus on being grateful for the body that I have, and feeling blessed that I have to the ability to do anything I set my mind to. I have spent so much time comparing myself to others and it is just ridiculous. This is a huge anxiety trigger for me. So, I am feeling very good about moving forward at this point and I will make my own self encouragement a priority starting today!

    You need to give yourself permission to be YOU!!! We are all on our own paths... and must learn to accept ourselves flaws and all so that we can truly be who we're meant to be!!!! You are a wonderfully unique person!!!!
