Dare | The Battle for You

by Cindy Ratzlaff

Dare to do things differently today. Boldly and bravely choose to say only positive things to yourself today.  I guarantee you that when you pay attention to every word you speak, you’ll clearly see how many times during any given day we all subtly or not so subtly undermine ourselves.  When we were young girls, we thought we were amazing.  We still are but we need to change the conversation we’re having with ourselves on a daily basis.  Dare to remember the way you felt about yourself before the world wore you down.

You drop something and declare “I’m so clumsy.”  You make a mistake and mutter “I’m an idiot.”  You prepare your meals and tell yourself “I’m so fat.”  You struggle with some task and say “I’m so dumb.”

Dare to declare “This ends today.”  Each time one of these negative phrases pops into our heads or out of our mouths today, stop and rephrase.

I’m so clumsy = Whoops, I dropped something.

I’m an idiot = I made a mistake and learned something.

I’m so fat = I’m taking care of myself.

I’m so dumb = I may not know how to do this yet, but I will soon.

Let’s change the conversation, with ourselves.

    it’s my birthday and i’m trying to decide if i want to go to Chili’s and have that chocolate brownie thing with the vanilla ice cream for dinner, even though my BG readings have been all over the freaking map for the past two weeks.

    on the one hand, you only live once, right?

    OTOH, i don’t know what caused this physical insanity to be set off on 29 july and it’s spooking me.

    update on this later…

    First, happy birthday Queen Meredith! We wish you a joyful, adventurous personal new year. We suspect that even your doctor would say that it’s ok to treat yourself every now and then unless there is something very seriously dangerous about that health-wise. Only you know for sure. But Chili’s or no Chili’s, we are singin’ the birthday song to you right now. 🙂
