Sometimes my thought machine makes thoughts like
THAT WENT WELL or YOU’RE DOING GREAT or YOU’VE GOT THIS
but sometimes it makes thoughts like
THAT WAS TERRIBLE or HOW EMBARRASSING or WHAT A MESS
When that happens, I dance. Write. Run. Sing.
Listen to music. Talk. Swim.
I think of ONE thing I like about myself
NICE EARLOBES or GREAT DANCING or EXCELLENT JOKES
and I set about my day.
And somehow, that pesky little thought machine
tends to think more positive things, like
THIS IS GOING WELL, YOU’RE DOING GREAT – YOU’VE GOT THIS!
and I have.
