My inner child and I have been having some good times lately. She’s still spunky, and thinks we are both 8.
We’ve had a couple of fits, argued over taking naps, and played a couple of board games. 😆
I think I’ll take her for ice cream later.
One of the Coaching lessons I had earlier this week from one of the books I’m reading “Girl Wash Your Face” by Rachel Hollis was how to speak to yourself, and keeping promises to yourself. It sort of follows the wisdom of, “The Four Agreements”, being impeccable with your word.
I’ve gotten much better a speaking to myself in a kinder tone. But I’m terrible at keeping promises to myself. Rachel Hollis was pretty specific and trusting yourself to keep your own word is more important than keeping your word to others. If you are always letting yourself down, how can you like yourself? You wouldn’t put up with someone else in your life always letting you down.
Self Trust + Self Talk = Self Care?
I can imagine that if that all gets out of hand, you get onto the track of Selfish?
It’s all a balance.
What do you think?
