I can't tell a good joke at all but I can make you laugh at the way I can't tell a good joke.
I'm excellent at charades. Or I think I am, which is just as good.

I have learned over the years to let go of things I can't control (that is a lot of things- most for that matter).

I also ask myself "Would I rather be happy or would I rather be right?" I usually opt for HAPPY!

I've been following this thread and couldn't think of anything to add, but this I can identify with!

Also, I have wonderful friends, fabulous step-kids, and great, great daughters-in-law...I feel so richly blessed. Oh, and a very lovely DH, too!!! And, of course, my beautiful grandson!!!

This thread needs to be kept current, it's so encouraging! And I could use a little bucking up. I'm just feeling a little down lately, and I have no idea why...

I am focused and determined.

I was lying in bed this morning thinking about how I berate myself constantly. I am human and I make mistakes. I want to be kinder to myself, so here's my affirmation:

I am a good person and I strive to do the right thing. Even after I make mistakes, I get up and try again.

Very nice indeed. And yes, you do!

My BFF and I were talking about the self-berating thing the other day. We say things and think things to and about ourselves that we would never, EVER say to a friend, or even just anyone else. Why? It's great that we want to hold ourselves to high standards, but come on!

Unna has a very interesting post on the topic of self-transformation in the context of paleo - she approaches it as a cultural phenomenon. I'm still thinking my way through it.
Quote:
My strong belief is that we need to stop treating our bodies like machines. We have to admit that we do not always have actual control to transform our bodies (especially permanently). This belief also makes me cringe when I consider the Crossfit community, who believe that they can treat their body like a mere machine and work it into the ground if they choose - only to get good effects (I say this while being a member!).

Some of us may have to completely abandon the project of "self-transformation", which is usually present in the form of having a "goal weight". I think we should have short and long-term goals in life, but I believe goal weights are highly ineffective because we cannot control whether we achieve this or not.
wrt to the self-criticism LCG mentions, part of my thoughts around the self-transformation drive:
Quote:
I find the notion of unrealistic goals for self-transformation to be intriguing. It's a somewhat unsettling re-working of the Pygmalion story with self as the malleable material/ Galatea and the demanding sculptor with an ideal in mind and no thought for the reality of being Galatea.
Hence the unhelpful or mindless criticism with no thought to someone's present reality (as an homage to Stephdray's fabulous post).

Bumping this, because a number of posts lately have been from JBs who have been guilty of beating themselves up.

You are wonderful intelligent women. and I am proud to know you all.

Bless you - I was trying to recall what this thread was called because I wanted to bump it after reading posts in which awareness of our flaws seems to be crowding out appreciation of our good qualities.

Likewise, delighted to know you, Cindy.

Thank you for reminding us again of this Cindy. You're right, we do need to remind ourselves and each other how amazing we really are.

Proud and so lucky to know you all!

I will always do the job no one else wants.
If you need help, encouragement, a hug, kindness or sympathy I'm your girl.
I have buried 2 husbands and I still trust.
I still trust.

I am honored to be among you, JBs.

I love that Pat. And I am confident that you are trusted, as much in real life as we trust you here.

I smile all the time at my gym classes and people often comment how nice that is.
