Two Cars, Two Egos = Tyranny of Certainty

What happens when Egos in cars clash? I observed a sad, silly and ultimately stupid example of the Tyranny of Certainty last week.

I was heading to our local village, Holywood, down a long, steepish hill. There were cars legally parked on the right hand side of the road, leaving somewhat limited space for two cars […]

The Gym and The Cyclone of Perfection

Hi.  Yes, it’s me here again.   I’ve been absent from my Blogland for (gulp) six months. Believe me, it’s not due to lazines.  It was down to an unexpected and increasing lack of confidence. My fear of stepping back into the writing again. Let me explain.

The first three months of 2018 were a bit horrific […]

Accepting the Tough Stuff

How many times a day do you find yourself in anxiety, fear, judgement, anger – with yourself or somebody else? Our default habit is to either lash out emotionally, and regretting that at a later time, or try to push them away, or push them down, denying them. This takes so much energy – and […]

Connect with your Inner Criticiser

Hello there – Do you have an Inner Critic? I know I certainly do. Which of you has more fun?

Transform your life – Trust Yourself

How much do you trust yourself? It’s a serious question. Take a moment, and ask yourself the question.  How is your self-trust?  Really examine all the areas of your life. And allow yourself to be honest in your response.

Thank your Inner Parrot?

Did you ever get that ‘YOU can’t do this!’ voice in your head? The voice of your Inner Parrot, squawking all sorts of undermining blech at you?

Yep, that one that makes you feel less than you are, small and useless? The one with the ughy messages?

I had a clear example of it just this week. […]

Your True or False Self?

Our lives are constantly changing. In our own world – relationships, health, work, finances, plans. Externally we need only consider politics, world happenings, climate.   All these changes impact how we are, how we show up in our lives.  Sometimes this impact can cause a deep level of fear. Do we keep on being how we […]

Joy of Compassionate Confidence

Now we’re getting to the living of compassionate confidence. When we allow ourselves to be quietly, strongly confident, when we accept ourselves as we are without fear or judgement, when we allow ourselves to fully express ourselves ….. Then, we begin to experience the joy of compassionate confidence.

You will start to feel it, after a […]

Self-compassion – Why? (5)

 

14/30

So by now, after four days of ‘Why’, you’ll be knowing that there are tons of great reasons to allow yourself to get your self-compassion groove on. (I’m beginning to sound like a Hippie ….. lovely!)

The final ‘why’ I offer you is this:

You begin to be on your side:    You have your own back. You’ve […]
