Today, I will practice noticing sooner. Noticing sooner when I am procrastinating or not being proactive at work. Noticing when I am overeating (why were there 4 separate delicious desserts at work today? The struggle is real, people). Notice when I start to have self-sabotaging thoughts, noticing when I have judgmental thoughts, noticing when I am merely pleasing others, when I am over-analyzing unimportant things, when I don’t want to do something that will support me. Just notice. Its the biggest step. Once you notice, choice is possible. There is the old automatic or, LOOK!, another option!
- I will choose to be open, authentic, and energized about romance. I will not name our children, worry that I like him more, or hide my true feelings. I will remember that great things take time.
- I will choose to be proactive at work. I will double check my work. I will step up every day. I will practice professionalism no matter what. I will create options for myself and choose where I will work.
- I will not hide in relationships with friends and family. If someone reaches out to me to do something I don’t want to do, I will change my mind or find another way to support them.
- I will be authentic, joyful, courageous, and vulnerable. I will trust. I know that I will always be ok. Ok, I mean AMAZING!
