That Inner Dialogue
Ever so slowly I am bringing back my shamrock plant back from the dead. This process ties in with the Easter season. Many of my plants get too much love (over watering) or not enough love (under watering). Then I'm faced with adjusting my love for them.
Have you ever thought about rewriting your inner dialogue. You know, the stuff we say to ourselves or think to ourselves day in day out. Sometimes that dialogue can be negative or maybe not productive. I've worked diligently these past years on focusing on the present and being overall positive. But life isn't stagnant and we are face with changes. When I'm sad, frustrated or worried, eventually I tire of those feelings and stop and truly listen to myself.
My inner dialogue needs rewriting. I'm listening to what I believe are facts and they are fiction, my imagination of what could be-what might be and nothing has happened yet. So this week, I'm rewriting my dialogue, every thought is being flipped over, scrutinized and changed to the positive. I like knowing I have the power.
One tool that helps me is writing down my gratitude list daily. I focus on what I'm thankful for and that gives the day a nice beginning. I've mentioned this before and I know some of you share gratitudes and keep lists. I like knowing I'm in good company.
Today I'm grateful for:
-friendships, online and in real life
-my family and my dog
-coffee in the morning
-the newness of each day
How is your inner dialogue? What would you rewrite? What would be on your gratitude list?
