Thinking that self respect and respect for others would open the mind to actually 'hearing' what is being said...going from that point to work on removal of the negative through 'humanness' and 'compassion' to change the negative self story or perceived negative story of another. At 68 I'm finally beginning to like myself, accept myself, and live a life no matter how little or how much I do within a day of purpose and meaning through just trying to be kind to myself and to others who pass my way.
I've known for years, and at the beginning of the summer I became so addicted to a particular person in the news daily...toxic reporting grabbed me. I also decided to become very aware of what I was saying 'in my head about myself'... especially negative self talk that created such painful days/nights....I was addicted and using the computer to numb out my feelings/life/just existing daily. I stopped watching the news, only picking and choosing reporting without theatrics/bias. I recognized I had 'choices to change my thinking and behavior'. It was then I decided to stop using my computer between 10am and 4pm M-F.
One of the best decisions of my life.

Today is the first day of Advent. I thought I'd post one of my favorite women guides, Carolyn Myss and her talk about how these days are so challenging with the darkness coming so early.Advent is a Time Of Light. Caroline Myss & Robert Holden: Advent - be prepared for a new beginning - YouTubeI don't have any Christmas decorations up yet...Need to get energy, and clean and rearrange...
