I’ve put this particular challenge off all week. I actually read the outline and said I think I’m doing ok – I’m not that negative when it comes to myself…and with that I looked across from the computer to the dishes and the washing that was in 2 baskets (yes I know its only 2 baskets of washing could be more!) and actually caught myself saying in my head, “You are so lazy, you really should do that now!” I’m not sure what else I was going to say because the other part of my brain which was listening to this shut the rest of my brain down!
I now have a list of things that I have found that I think I’m not good enough at. From cooking (it is edible!) to parenting to blogging to just being able to do my own hair nicely! I did make a list and thought that by writing it down it may help me identify some changes I could make…but instead of changes I came up with more and more things I could be better at, or do better at.
I am doing this challenge so as not to dwell on all the negative but to Simplify my Life and become a happier person in the process.
I acknowledge that I was being very hard on myself in whatever I was doing.
I acknowledge that I have been doing this for a very long time.
I acknowledge that I actually care about how I think I’m doing.
I also acknowledge that being a self critic doesn’t have to be a bad thing, but it does need to have boundaries.
And finally I acknowledge that I have done great to get here, so I’m sure that I can be just as great in the future.
