I’m gonna try a short little post here – regarding the greatest heckler – my EGO.
The other day after having no sleep whatsoever I was doing my best to look presentable. And let me tell you, it wasn’t pretty. While applying morning make up looking right into the mirror it started in with the negative chatter. THE EGO.
Oh wow, this totally isn’t working. You are NEVER going to get rid of those circles. EEK, too bad you can’t go back to BED.
Getting louder – You really think you are going to pull this off? Yea, not working. Then it moved on to the next subject, do you really think people want to hear what you have to say? (this is one of my EGO’s Favorite Subjects.)
Do you think people really INSERT NEGATIVE CHATTER HERE. Blah Blah Blah.
So I just let it. Didn’t try to stop it, didn’t cower down and let it run me over. Just let it run the cycle, finish the loop. And then it just stopped short. didn’t know what to do. Kind of like a two-year old pitching a fit, my ego looked back at me in the mirror, dumbfounded.
Are you done? I asked? and the response was, “yea, this isn’t any fun if you aren’t going to play.” Sulking almost.
Then I went back to getting ready. And I guess my ego went back to bed. Because it left me alone for the rest of the day.
