Not to get into too many details, but I've been doing a lot of goal setting recently. A lot of thinking forward. I was writing up sort of a reward chart for meeting my goals, and adding some positive comments for myself along the way.
I was surprised looking back when I finished the list that everything was "YOU". As in, "You are really doing it!" It's easier for me to say these things to someone else. In my head I was imagining what I would say to a friend. I wasn't talking to me.
Why aren't I that friend?
Why is it so hard to naturally write, "I am really doing it" instead?
I'm going to work on that.
