The who of what we are is very much predicated upon how we talk to ourselves. (Bare with me here for a minute… ) So I was wondering; How do you talk to yourself when you look in the mirror? These private moments are usually when , as I put it, our chattering monkey comes out. You know, that little voice of judgement. The one that says… “Eeewww you’ve gained weight!” or “Are you kidding me? Have I really got those bags under my eyes and over my thighs!!!” We tend to judge ourselves because something else deeper is really going on. And then we become our human punching bag.
So then I wonder what would happen if you simply looked and said gently, “How spectacular that I’m here today.” Now I know that might not be so easy but how about, “Sheew, I actually made it out of bed”… You get the idea. Make it organic for your positive (anabolic) Zsuzs! The thing here is that we start to believe our own self talk. You know the expression,”We are our own worst enemy? I invite you to re-frame that to, “We are our own best friend!”
When I was a little kid I was given the most amazing privilege to work with a marvelous director. He told us to look in the mirror everyday and give ourselves a BIG HUG! Then kiss ourselves from our finger tips on up each of our arms. Then say,”I. Love. Me!” Now remember I was a little kid about about 10. Little did I realize just how important that was to the formation of a mind. Now I invite you to do the same. You may feel exceptionally silly at first but after a while you just might see.
Because if you are not passionate about you…. Who will be?
