Ever have one of those ‘foggy’ days, when thoughts are fleeting and lost?
Yesterday I was in a foggy daze.
I got lost.
I got found.
I messed up every time I turned around.
It’s not me. That’s not who I am.
Who is it then?
Shaking off the fog, I was watching myself as if I was someone else.
I had to laugh at myself to keep from a dark and sinister condemnation.
What is worse then tearing your own self down?
My big challenge: to speak to myself, about myself, in caring and supportive tones.
That’s not easy.
But…..(don’t you just cringe at the but?)
BUT! I am sharp, well thought out, decisive, articulate, funny, resourceful, practical, forgiving, and kind. I am confident, capable, well able to get from point A to point B without getting lost. I see detail, and have a great memory. I don’t fail, I learn. I can do this, even when it’s foggy.
Do you ever have to stop internal dialogue? How do you turn it around?
