Everyone has one. Don't they?
You know who I mean. That little voice in your head, the one that tells you you don't do enough, or you aren't good enough. The one that you would sometimes like to turn off.
Mine can be a real bitch. I mean it.
She hounds me sometimes. Pushes me. Just about drives me wild.
She always has.
She always wants me to work harder, do more, be stronger. She would like me to give up sleeping, so I could get even more done.
She nags me too. Like when I eat potato chips. And I LOVE potato chips, no matter how bad they are for you.
She would have me eating salads and fruit exclusively.
She groans and moans if I watch trashy TV.
When I walk 3 miles, she thinks I should have gone for 4.
Why is it never enough for her????? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.
Since I felt pretty stupid about my decision to do that awful show this weekend, inner critic had a field day.
Can't ya just hear her???
Even turning the music up on my Iphone didn't drown her out.
So I walked 4 miles on Saturday.
And four miles again on Sunday!!! I love walking on this path, the canal on one side, and the river on the other.
Even with the little voice.
She has her good points. A lot of my success in life has been at her urging. She hasn't let me rest on my laurels, ever.
But today, I have news for her.
Don't hate me, I.C., but we're paring down here. Can't ya feel it?? There's a new breeze blowing.
Time to refocus, regroup, time to take a deep breath, and slow. it. down.
You can keep talking, but change the subject. OK?
