Hi there, everybody. How is your day going? I hope life is treating you well and you if you feel it isn’t may you find the solution that will make all the difference.
Last year I have started a different blog over at Weebly which I called “Bee SelfCaring“. My idea was to share ideas about self-care and starting a conversation about how we can get ourselves into a self-care routine.
I am reviewing myself and what I do on a constant basis (you could also say “I criticise myself on a regular basis” 😉 ) and it has occurred to me that self-care is only a part of something that is more important to me: Self-improvement.
In all my blog posts no matter which blog I write for I often write about what I achieved or what I haven’t achieved. I start to think that I am a rather ambitious person even though I do not feel like I am getting anywhere. But hey, feelings are funny things and so often lie to us.
There is nothing wrong with being ambitious or wanting to improve yourself. In fact, it might be what will give me that sense of my purpose in life. It would be great if I could help others to believe in themselves and finding their way of achieving what makes them happy. Until I find that path I keep it with Mr Edison (yes the one with the light bulb): I haven’t failed, I have just found 10 000 ways that haven’t worked!!!
As I currently have no income, no therapy nor the possibility to have a coach I use what I have and start where I am: I have a ton of self-help and improvement books on my kindle and will work myself through them one at a time. At the moment I read a book called “Eat That Frog” by Brian Tracy. It is brilliant even though it tells you a couple of truths that you might not want to know. Each chapter is finished with a “Eat That Frog List of things to do” and today I took some time to apply some of them. Will be interesting to see if they work. I will keep you updated.
After I finished my review I thought: “That might be a good thing to write a poem about” hence the title of this little poem:
Eat That Frog
you need to do
won’t hop away
like a frog
in the grasses.
it really won’t
It sits there
and looks at you
to eat it
throw it at the wall!
Happy self-caring & self-improving to you all!!!!
