Remember how I used to have to bribe and reward myself at Chez Spinster to do things like laundry or dust? I stopped doing that when my entire life upended and changed, but I decided to re-implement the bribe/reward system as it relates to making it through the week.
If I go to all three dialysis sessions and behave myself nicely, I will stop at the Starbucks in front of CS2 and get a Venti latte with two pumps of cinnamon dulce. AND...I will not beat myself up for three days afterwards because this is a silly decadent indulgence that is fine for somebody else but not for me.
I am also issuing a challenge to myself for 2019, and that is to stop being so bloody hard on myself. Today is December 7th, so I have a full 24 days left to berate, offend, chastize, belittle, shame, and talk poorly to the mirror. Enough is enough, I tell ya. I'm as tired of doing it as you are of hearing it, I promise you.
Time to re-tie the strings of my cape and get back to it. This mat that I've been down on is lumpy and stinky and I want to get back up on my glittery unicorn and soar like the wind.
Thank you, Dearies! Hold me accountable to this, please. If I go too far toward the other extreme, you have my full permission to smack me back into line, but for now methinks a little kindness and gentleness with myself might be just what the doctor ordered.
Happy Friday! Hope your weekend is off to a wonderful start!
Oh, and P.S....my sister has some new things in her etsy shop if you are in need of seasonal needleminders. Here's some that I added to my stash today!
The name of my sister's shop is: SiggysCloset
