When I’m having what I consider a “rough day” it’s because I’m not being kind to myself which looks like me reacting to and raging out at the world.
My pen dropped on the floor? How dare it, it was supposed to stay on my desk!
My appointment showed up late, how could they? Don’t they know MY time is valuable?
Why don’t these people learn how to drive? They’re in my way!
Enter thought work, like I teach my clients. I’ve been doing it now for 2 years.
And the other morning I wasn’t not feeling fantastic.
And I accidentally swept a folder of papers and my pen onto the floor.
And I noticed about 2 seconds after it happened that I didn’t react.
I didn’t get upset.
I didn’t seethe internally.
I didn’t swear or yell.
I didn’t get frustrated.
I simply bent down and picked them back up.
Sounds like nothing, right?
To me, someone who grew up reacting to everything and “should-ing” everything… this is huge.
This is proof that I’ve changed.
I’m becoming who I want to be.
I keep finding these moments where “old me” would have done things differently.
And new me is the me I’m proud of.
Someone I’m loving and nurturing every day.
This is what coaching and learning to self-coach (a skill I teach all of my clients) is doing for me. It brought tears to my eyes.
It’s never too late to grow.
Don’t give up on yourself.
Practice love and kindness.
I believe in me and I believe in you. ❤️
You can do this.
