Monday Musings- Thought for the day

The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance; the wise grows it under his feet.-James Oppenheim

Do you find this hard to literally do? I sure do.

It's like the grass is always greener somewhere else.

It's hard to stay in one place - look at yourself in a mirror and tell yourself - everything is okay the way it is. I look okay. I feel okay. My life is okay. I think okay. My kids are okay and so forth.

Think about this: If I'm always complaining and unhappy - then I'm just telling myself to be that way.

If I keep self talking to myself positively (or negatively) - I will start to believe it - and when I believe it - it becomes real.

I've done this a lot and I know it works, but I can you it's easy to forget, to fall off the wagon, and go back to your old ways of thinking. Then you just gotta get up, brush yourself off, and start again.

Like I've always said, this blog is for me as much as it is for anyone - it's a form of self talking (Lol)!

Self talk is a useful tool!
It should be mandatory, especially for the female population who easily are persuaded that they are not ok, or right, or good enough....
Self affirmation, looking in the mirror and being your own coach is would we get through it all, every day, if we didn't do this sometimes for ourselves? It ain't coming from anywhere else in my household, that's for sure!
