Not sure why it's taken me so long to really, I remember reading it, but think I must have fallen asleep after reading one night. So apologies fir delay and spelling, I'll try spell check this one as I'm going
Yes recognising negative thoughts can be difficult as they do skip past, I e been working on this fir a year and half now, so it's no way road, no quick fix, but definitely see a change and improvement in my thinking, and therefore my actions. Your style of laughing at the thoughts sound like a moment of great fun and also epiphany moment, quite euphoric and exhilarating too I'd imagine!
Aha...I just remembered why I could answer immediately, I had moment of self doubt, when you told me how impressed etc that you were of me, not self doubt more self love, self acceptance of my skills, acceptance of the compliment, recognising it as your truth. So at the time, i knew there's was some inner self talk that was needed, so that I could come back and respond authentically with a THANKYOU, and mean it and Allow your words to be the truth and accept them as truth.
We're so easy to accept something crap somesays abuyt us, but don't know about you, but noticing more and more how internally uncomfortable I get when someone says something nice or respectful. I'm like oh wow you see that, you think that, you believe that about me!while externally I'm all oh thanks and big smiles and one liners..
Anyway I think a post that I responded to earlier (which you also did, about a user asking how to become resilient to pain or being let down..can't remember specific word). But it has really (subconsciousLy) prepared me to answer this post , it made me take what yiu said in Love an,
So thankyou so much for what you said..
I didn't realise you had nightmares, obviously something I missed in your posts, sorry to hear that, but interesting that the context of dreams and fabric, are changing as you manage your thoughts during day, amazing power of our mind aye.
Up again as this early morning been up since 4ish I think, getting to be a habit now, but at least it gives me a quiet moment to think fir myself without nose if my works, the world, my daughter needing me or my son. These early morning wake ups have become my ME TIME for hour or so..And then I get back To sleep. But I often have very blurry eyes while trying, as although I'm awake I dint put on lights, or sit up, I'm laying down writing,and letter the natural sleep take over me when it needs, so my early morning ramblings may be even more badly spell checked than the afternoon ones..lol.
I'm going to recheck this though, well the majority of it.. (need automatic spell check on the iPad
Hope you had good night rest and hope your week so far has been off to great start.
