A very warm and joyous Friday to you! I am still riding my high from the weekend and I’ve decided to consciously choose to live on this high for the rest of my life. I say that with the full understanding that life is going to happen and every moment won’t necessarily be a pleasant one. However, I recognized that allowing myself to get overwhelmed to the point that I need a get away doesn’t serve me well. I recognized a lot this weekend. One of the things that became glaringly obvious to me was the way that I speak to myself. I caught myself and I actually cringed. I asked myself, Why do you speak this way to yourself? and I recognized that it was my inner critic speaking. My inner critic was a harsh one. But I had to have a sit down with her and I think it was the start of a beautiful ending of a relationship.
