ONE thing we all have to remember and do is to take care of ourselves. Acknowledge that we need appreciation from ourselves. When we do something to help ourselves we need to pat ourselves on the back. I have a habit of always worrying about what I did wrong and what I could do better. I never take the time out to thank myself ever. Part of that is how my childhood was. I could not do anything right. Sometimes I still feel that way. I hate feeling that way. I need to work on being positive about myself and thinking positive about myself. I was told to keep a gratitude journal. I started one yesterday. Are you taking time for YOU! Do you have a journal? Do you take care of YOU? I am always hearing the critical voice and not the thankful and grateful voice. This person that suggested all of this we will call Mom J. Mom J really listens and pins point exactly the advice you need. She is a healer and a very wise woman. Thank you Mom J. I will find that gratitude voice. It is there within me I just have to listen for it. I have so many worries and fears that they take over my brain. My brain is exhausted by the end of the day. How do you handle things? What are your ways of calming down? I want to hear from you. Thank you for reading my blog. Now onto the next life lesson.
