So the company offered a brief seminar on positive thinking. Under this broad subject was a dialogue on "How is your self talk?" The question: Is your brain getting in your way? Change what you say to yourself
From "I'm feeling... - To "I'm feeling...
Angry - Disenchanted
So instead of I'm feeling Angry it would be I'm feeling disenchanted
Fear - Wonderment
Hurt - Dinged
Jealous - Overloving
Frustrated - Fascinated
Lazy - Storing Energy
Overwhelmed - In Demand
Embarrassed - Aware
Pissed off - Tinkled
I will use a few of these new words in a sentence now to see if I feel more positive and to see if this "self talk" stuff really works.
I was in demand (overwhelmed) today with the 6 appointments and 2 soccer games and 4 counters but was storing energy (lazy) getting a late start watching TV. I was aware (embarrassed) that my zipper was down and fascinated (frustrated) by the lack of team effort on the soccer field. After getting home, I was so disenchanted (angry) by the Nordstrom's bill and then to top it off, the lady was tinkled (pissed off) because I forgot to scoop the litter box.
I'm telling you all, this self talk stuff is GREAT!
