It's the old airline
adage of 'putting on your own oxygen mask before helping others'. Most of find
the time to make a kind comment or gesture to those around us but how often do
we extend that same kindness to ourselves. I'm sure I'm not the only one whose
inner voice can be a little harsh, a little nasty and sometimes just downright
My inner voice feels
free to speak to me in a way that I would never dream of speaking to anyone
else. And yet, more often than not I tolerate it. I don't question it.
This serves as a
welcome reminder to me that my RAK challenge isn't all about making others feel
good, it can be about allowing myself to feel good too.
So, today I am going
to tell that pesky inner voice to pipe down and play nice while I sit in my favourite
craft corner and play with yarn.
