[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] One of those days
Self Sabotage is a common response to forcing ourselves to do something we
do not believe we can do or should b doing. Rather than run the risk of
finding success or meeting with failure, we pull out, abandon, or mess up
before we can even complete the task. Iyanla Vanzant
Confessions on the journey - My over thinking was on over drive. Have you
been in a situation where things are movinh along swimmingly, it's all
coming together nicely like ice cream. And then out of the blue shit starts
hitting the fan, you run to turn the fan off, but it' still spinning.
Something triggers you, and all good sense and reasoning is forgotten?
Yea that's me right about now
I thought to myself - well I over thought to myself- listen you are
supposed to be the one spreading good news and sharing about being positive
- stop it, snap out of it, stop eating all those cheese crackers.
Then some sense prevails and I remember that I am from the human race, we
all have some funk days.
Recently I got off a phone call and I was sour, I even started crying, I
was so frustrated with myself being resistant, doubting myself, feeling
scared instead of taking all the lessons and applying them. I shut down and
started overthinking moving from this setback that related to my work and
painted all over my personal life, the pity party was happening!
I must admit my own reaction disappointed me
And the next few hours I tried everything I could to pick myself up. I
planned to throw myself into some writing to thwart those feelings. But as
I typed away, the general frustration sat near and my thoughts flickered
their way any chance they got.
These are the days. These are what any of our days looks like. We have
tough ones. We forget to trust ourselves. We forget we can do this. We get
all twisted in some crap and are quickly down the hole rolling around in
the dark with emotion, anxiety, worry, and fear.
I popped on some music and had a party - me and Itunes , I sang danced
jumped and hollered (my poor neighbors). Forget about the crap for a
minute, laugh, have a party, literally. Some people may feel better
connecting to others, call a friend, call not text, hearing a voice can
make a whole difference. Connect to the things that matter and remember to
switch on the light that is always in you
