[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Who's zoomin who?

You thought I'd be naive and tame But I beat you at your own game Guess you believed the world Played by your rules Here stands an experienced girl I ain't nobody's fool, bump you Who's zoomin' who? Aretha Frankin (The Queen of Soul)

I love Eckhart Tolle and Micheal Singer's work, they talk about the "voice
in your head" that goes on and on and sometimes we find ourselves arguing
or at war with the voice but even more funny we haven't decided who we are
in the conversation and sometimes we switch to be the "good cop" or
the "bad cop" depending on the situation or the circumstance.

Have you ever had that self talk conversation? I have it when I am faced
with decisions on eating way too much chocolate, then the whole family in
my head comes out! The trick I learnt , is to still the mind! Meditation
and yoga for me works wonders and then I get to face the day, the decision,
everything without the "ole noise" anyways I digress. All this to say that
this morning I woke up with the family on my head having a conference call,
I decided to start writing out what I was grateful for and wow, the feeling
of pure joy started flooding me, I cannot even explain it! So I am ready
for the day, ready for my Book Signing Event at Trincity Mall Nigel R Khan
Booksellers, I have a mighty crew that is so awesome! I love them! Erica,
Katherine, My mums, more and more reasons to be grateful.

What's going on in your head? What is the conversation? Are you loving you
or beating you up? Who's zoomin who in your head?
