I am a talented person.
I tell myself all the time.
It’s part of my positive self talk. Once, I put phrases on the bathroom mirror in college that said things like “Hot home cooking, I am so good looking!” If you say it enough, you’ll believe it, warts and all.
Other examples of positive self talk in my life:
- Good job getting out of bed this morning, Lare. Pat on the back.
- Ooo, you lifted 20 lbs. You are getting strong!
- Mmm, this dinner is amazing. You should cook more often!
What do you congratulate yourself on?
Right now, I want to congratulate myself on being such a great procrastinator. I will be going to London for a vacation and I plan on packing sometime the night before. Hope I remember at least the essentials like clean underwear, deodorant and a toothbrush.
Another aspect of being a procrastinator is that when I start a project that is a bit overwhelming, I usually find a smaller, more manageable project to distract me. So I have these grand ideas to create a blog book using Adobe InDesign. Last week, I put together the template, started working on the cover design, opened up Photoshop to work on that and SOMEHOW, I ended up working on a video project using Movie Maker. Totally different project; totally different application. Follow THAT train of thought.
I had a fun time making the video though.
Eventually, after I’ve packed for vacation, after I’ve gone on vacation, after I’ve returned, after I’ve caught back up at work again, I think I’ll work on finishing the design for the cover for my little book I’m making for myself.
What should I call it?
Currently, I’m going with The Sciolist.
