Talking back to The Voice
Okay I have a great, awesome, fabulous, interesting and healthy project for us today.
We kind of all or almost all of us agreed we had The Voice and sometimes it wasn't very nice to us. Well, it's true for me.
One of the exercises said to stop The Voice and replace it with a good Voice, a new Voice.
The only way to do that is to have words to replace it with.
So I could say in 50 words or less - or 25 words or less - but how about 15 as a starting place - we women hate to toot our our horns - it's like it is a sin of something and I don't think so - I think God wants us to like ourselves because when we do - we're better to others because we are happier - right?
So be BRAVE and share the good side of yourself - with me, with others, with the world, and with yourself - in any order.
So in 15 words - describe only the good things about yourself. You can make a copy and then tell yourself those qualities when you hear the other voice.
So I'll go first;
Rebellious (I look at that as a good thing).
Okay now I want to hear yours - only the good ones - we know the bad ones already.
And happy birthday to Kate Chopin from Wikipedia - it is amazing that our past - our backgrounds have so much to do with who we are and what we do and how we live . . .
Kate Chopin (born Katherine O'Flaherty on February 8, 1851 – August 22, 1904) was an American author of short stories and novels, mostly of a Louisiana Creole background. She is now considered by some to have been a forerunner of feminist authors of the 20th century.
In 1899, her second novel, The Awakening, was published, and the book was criticized because of its moral, as well as its literary standards. Her best-known work, it is the story of a woman trapped in the confines of an oppressive society. Out of print for several decades, it is now widely available and critically acclaimed for its writing quality and importance as an early feminist work.
