Kind Words

We all have self talk.  You know, that voice in your head that is helping you make decisions or just telling yourself what you REALLY think.   This year I am making an effort to change my inner dialogue.  Yes, I talk to myself, sometimes out loud (do you do that?).  Maybe it's a result of living by myself. 

I found this on pinterest and it really struck a cord with me.
What about you?  What's your inner dialogue?  I must admit, sometimes I really crack myself up!

My inner dialogue is lists...since I suffered the last concussion, I need to make lists and then work from them...Thing is when you hae a brain injury it can be hard to i somehow manage to lose the list!

i find sometimes I am sort of mentally chanting the list as I prepare for a a party or cook a meal.

But I do know what you are talking about...that little voice that wqarns you when something is not right usually needs to be listened too.

I found a saying on Pinterest that said "I'm telling my negative thoughts to sit down and shut up!"..and then I add..I'm thinking nice thoughts..and will add my nice thought. Too funny, huh? waving hi, sending hugs from the hills of North Carolina :)

Yes I have to admit I talk to myself too and I don't live alone! My inner voice can be unkind to myself so I think I will try and be kinder xx

Hi Kay I talk to myself as well and don't live alone!!!! They are not often kind to myself either. Am trying to be kinder to myself this year. Anne x

It's interesting isn't it that it seems wrong to say nice things about ourselves...why are we so rubbish at accepting compliments? Your sign is most pertinent, I think, that almost before we love others, we should learn to love ourselves first.

I came to peek at your WOYWW and found myself asking what had I said nice to myself..I'm not crazy was about it today lol! That and maybe that my bumm looks much better now that I've lost weight! Thanks for the visit!

My inner dialogue is usually about trying to solve problems. Having done an NLP course a long while ago, I learned a lot about myself and how to be more positive about myself. I don't talk to myself out loud but I think I talk more with my inner self Than I do with others sometimes lol.
Be kind to yourself.
Hugs Brenda xxx

I don't believe it is a Scottish trait to say kind things about yourself ... my mother would have said 'ye fairly have a hit for yourself' if she caught any of us blowing our own trumpet :) But, I've learned from my dear English husband to value myself much more and squash my inner critic when it's really giving me a hard time. Oh, and I certainly do talk to myself, especially when there's a task to be done ... and I think that if I was paid for every time I said, 'now what was I doing?' I'd be rich indeed :)) Elizabeth xx

Kay, this post really made me smile. Sounds corny, but I also sometimes crack myself up :-)) Love the words from Pinterest - very well worth considering!
Hoping all is well with you. Best of wishes for a blessed 2013 - hope to meet you in the artistic communities again this year!
Hugs from Greece,

Hi Kay, I have just read through all the replies and so glad that I am not the only one who is their own worst critic! I do talk to myself too, sometimes out loud too, I think it keeps me reasonably sane....whatever that is! Your post certainly gives food for thought....... Hugs, Anne x

I must be nuts. I don't usually talk to myself, but I do say what the cats would say to me if they talked. They have a messed up thought process, those cats! LOL! But they are brutally honest, gotta give them credit for that.

Di said...

Hah, this struck a chord Kay! I also talk to myself - and it seems most of us do it :) Love that you crack yourself up - tooo funny :)

Hugs! Di xx
