BYJ: Day 8, follow-up

I’m in the process of “fixing” myself.   I had a book suggested to me, that I feel is really pretty good.  I’m going through the suggestions in the book here. Well, I’m stuck on on of the suggestions – the one I mention in Day 8. Well, the truth of the matter is that I get hung up on details…I don’t know why, but when I encounter something I can’t do perfectly, I feel trapped.  I really can’t lug around a jar to feed quarters too on a regular basis.  Not only that, Hilda has a way of going on tirades and I would not have any money left to pay my routine bills, if I fed my Appreciation Jar some quarters for each thing said. So, I brainstormed some ideas and this is what I came up with:

  1. Create a sub-category in my BYJ titled “Appreciation Jar”, where I create entires for compliments I hear or receive.  I would simply put an entry in for everyone I receive (as diligently, as possible, that way when Hilda rears her mean head, I can come back to read my appreciate jar.
  2. Make a post, of one self-deprecating rant that gets a lot of what I feel about myself out an in the open. No logic, pure emotional outburst releasing all of the self-hatred I have.  I mention this, because Day 9 is focused on trying to understand where your negative self-talk is coming from.

Just curious what my readers thoughts might be.  Please feel free to offer insight or suggestions.

  1. An appreciation jar is the answer, with ALL the positives.
    Suggestion on the Self-Hate aspect… Consider this: It is something else I am truly angry with and it’s just that ‘I’ am in the way of the ‘fire’ and thus get the ‘full blast’…..Just a thought.

  2. I think it’s a great idea but I do hope you have more in the appreciation jar versus the self-deprecating rants because you really should appreciate yourself like WE appreciate you. Just sayin’ 💕
