Hello Little Self!

(Calm seas)

I’m tired today and I’ve left writing this post too late for the amount of energy available. But instead of getting a little annoyed with myself I’ve decided to be kind to myself. Ok little self what can I do to help you? No answer but that really feels nice, soft and squishy. It’s the opposite of the way I usually feel when I get annoyed with myself.

But just to experiment lets try the other way… Ok lazy, get that post done now, you’re always leaving things to the last minute, you’re lazy and you procrastinate! Ok that’s not so nice, it’s feels like a huge dollop of concrete poured into my torso and limbs – I really don’t feel like doing anything now.

Why do we think that being annoyed or angry with ourselves we’ll get things done. Why do we think that when we call ourselves stupid we’ll be able to behave smarter? Why do we treat ourselves harshly in order to get the best out of ourselves?  Is there another way?

Ok little self, rest, Mairead.

    Lovely post Mairead. When we stop beating ourselves up about what we’re NOT doing maybe we can start appreciating what we ARE doing a little more. A good life lesson, thanks.
