I made a contract with myself this week. It's been a difficult week and a couple of times I found I was doubting myself. I know this is a reasonable and human thing to do. But. I find that when doubt is sustained it really gets in they way. When I don't believe in myself it doesn't work on so many levels. This week I noticed that a couple of times I thought that I wasn't strong enough. So of course I wasn't. Then I decided it was time to turn it around. I have made a contract with myself for a month - that I believe I am strong enough every single day. No correspondence will be entered into. Strong or Strong. So far so good. If a conversation starts up in my head, a seed of doubt, I remind myself that I said - no choice here, you are strong. I think this is about forming a new habit. Will let you know in a month how it goes. If you were to make a contract with yourself that helped you to take care of yourself, what would it be?
This blog is dedicated to sharing resources for taking care. It was inspired by my darling friends, Mary and Wendy - we all love real stuff that inspires. A new resource will be posted on Sundays. If you have any you would like to share please email them in to: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
