I was reading a list of seven things a boss should never say to an employee, and I thought “Wow” that is a great idea for a post, “Seven things we should never say to ourselves.”
So I started writing a list of them, and gosh, it was so depressing I decided this would be better.
Seven things we should say to ourselves:
- I did a really good job on that.
- Wow, I look great.
- I am proud of myself for figuring out a way to handle that.
- I am good at this (whatever this is at the moment.)
- I love . . .
- I am happy (when the awareness hits you.)
- Mmm, I feel great.
Simple list, big results. Try working them all in today or this weekend.
They are seven great reminders of just how wonderful, capable, and beautiful you really are.
Do you have any personal favorites to add to the list? Comment away. It would be great if we could get the list to 100. “100 wonderful things to say to ourselves.”
Have a great weekend.
Mmm, I feel great. I did a really good job on that. I am so happy. I am proud of myself for figuring out a way to handle today’s post. I am good at this. (OMG, cannot believe I said that publicly. Hmm, the world has not ended, nothing bad happened just because I said I was good at something in public. Whew.)
I love it when it works.
Six down, one to go and it is not even 8:00 a.m. on Friday morning. I really am good at this.
