I tell myself, keep going girl. You've got this. I've gotten to the point, where I know self love, self care and self motivation is the ticket. Sure - hearing love and support from others feels good - but when it's coming from inside my mind - oh - well now the fun party can get started.
Sure the party can still get filled with some shenanigans or a little ruckus - but then I really know - I need to do a swoop fast. I don't let the anxiety, anger, and irritation run the show. Those parts can have their moment, to let me know they are upset about something - but after that - I'll call Mental Girl and we will get in solution mode.
You know the party is inside my mind right? You know Mental Girl is me? You know the parts are all me. I mean, I know. But I want you to know, that I know it too.
My mind is always chattering. Well, maybe not always. There have been times - although brief - when I have noticed that it gets quiet in here. Oh - that's the blissful feeling I talk about in my book Mental Girl. Oh it's lovely.
Remember I like to speak in metaphors. I use silly faces. Well, you can't see those on a blog. But picture me with my eyebrows going up and down, expressive eyes, hand gestures and I'm looking at you. Yeah - it can get a bit intense - sure. And I do try to reign it in for those who can't take all that energy.
I did a podcast this morning. Hope it helps. I hope they all help. Okay - here it is:
Last night I sang a little and posted in on Instagram. Some of my silliness.
As the title of this section says, I gotta be me.
Oh and note to self. Let the silly shit go and just be silly.
