This year I have been good enough….

I know I focus way too much on tomorrow..in fact, I may have lost a whole year because I have trouble grasping the fact that each day I was good enough.  For those of us focused on self-help, the buzz-word to make us feel better about ourselves is writing in a gratitude journal….and positive self talk.  I’ve heard it.  Apparently, it wasn’t something that got my attention because I haven’t done it.  I decided this morning that I’m going to start 2015 with positive self talk.  It’s a goal, I realize…it is something that I might fail to do…but I’m hoping it will replace the negative self talk from the voices in my head.  The way the theory works is by writing down or thinking everyday about the positive things in your life and focusing on the positive things, you will live a happier life and eventually you will genuinely focus on the good.  The discipline is going to be tough but I feel it is something I really need to do.

That is not to say that I won’t still have the negative thoughts and that I will still rage on about things that totally piss me off on my therapy blog, Ninasusan.  I know focusing on the self-negative has enabled me to change things about myself that I didn’t like but the fine line is still there…I want to pull myself up over the fine line of acceptance and focus more on who I am and not who I think I should be.  So for today…

I’m good enough!

  1. Nina, you have been so much more than good enough. If you don’t believe that, go ask your new friends, family and the people you interact with daily.
    I hope you have an even more wonderful 2015. Maybe more grandbabies?

  2. It’s funny I was just telling Tracy this morning I was going to do a gratitude jar for 2015. Every day I must add a piece of paper for something I was grateful for that day. Then I get to read them New Years Eve 2015
