fake it till you make it

Today I feel better. I feel in the moment. I feel less critcal of myself. I feel less fearful, more couragous. I am going to have an attitude of graditude. I am going to try to get and stay out of SELF today. I am going to treat myself with kindness. I am not going to compare myself to others. I am clipping along fine. I have a better lifestyle now then I have had in years. I have great friends and wonderful family that I love and that I know love me. I have an awesome job, I work for people that, in general, I admire and respect. I am able to earn extra money to make my money obligations. I am learning to be frugal. I am a work in progress!

And if I don't really feel those things at any given moment......I am going to fake it till I make!

Happy Friday. Keep the mood and the food real.

  3. Great attitude! We all need to be able to "persuade" ourselves to see things for how good we are having it compared to how things couuld be better.

    Hopefully soon you're faking it less and less.

  9. What a wonderful post! What really struck a chord with me was when you said, "I am a work in progress". How so true. And how often we forget that we are a work in progress. The changes are not going to come in our lives with the snap of our fingers...it's a slow evolution! Thanks for that reminder!

  12. You know, the thing is...you ARE making it--I see that! I get your thinking, and I do that too. It's a great mantra, because we will start believing what we repeat!

    (((hugs)))

  13. Of course, at the end up the day, we ARE our own best hero.
    But in the "getting there" process, we can "borrow" from each other's strengths, help and support each other.
    Isn't that what it's really about at the end of the day?
    Thanks for all that you share!
