We find it easy to describe things
as what they are not.
We seem to have a more difficult time
describing things in the positive
an even more difficult time believing
them about ourselves.
This is why we rebel against affirmations,
feeling like we are channeling Stuart Smalley,
“And darn it, people like me.”
So why not start with describing what
what you don’t
in order to get to what you want.
I don’t neglect my body;
I don’t hold grudges;
can lead to
I care for my body;
I forgive and ask for forgiveness.
Today, figure out what you aren’t.
