#affirmation Here’s a Zentangle that I did. My question for you is this. Is it right side up? I ask because this is one of the ones I look back at thinking maybe it’s upside down.
And isn’t that odd that I would think that. I mean I created it right? Kind of silly to worry that it is upside down.
But I think we all do this. we look back on a situation–not to review it so much as to second guess ourselves. What is that tendency we have to judge our actions as wrong? Why not examine things with an attitude of “what did I do right?” “What could I have done better?”
In my day job we have a practice of “went well” and “could be better” that really works. It takes the focus off right and wrong. It helps frame a review as a training tool rather than a “let’s beat you up” meeting.
So why don’t we do that for ourselves? I say let’s start. To that end, here is today’s affirmation.
I acknowledge my past as a teacher. I learn from my experiences whether they are good or bad. I embrace this opportunity for improvement. I make wise decisions based on lessons learned. Loved and loving, I love each of you. Seek joy, y’all.
But really, is that tangle upside down?
