attitude demons

I must confess. 
Lately, I feel like I have been fighting "attitude demons".  I'm sure you guys know what I'm talking about.  I know I'm not unique here. I have been feeling unenthusiastic and down right tired. My mom would have said, "you have a pissy attitude".  And she would have been right.  I know the best thing to do is feel my feelings before releasing them.  Writing in my journal is one way I do that.  I simply write everything about the way I feel.  I sometimes repeat the same thing over and over again.  By the time I'm done I get closer to understanding more about who I am.

Thru  my journaling, I came to realize that my negative attitude came from the child persona within me.  My adult side can reason, understand, and accept.  But my child doesn't understand.

I decided to create a piece of art as my reminder.  I believe you can do almost anything if you have the right attitude.

By the way, I'm better now.
I choosing a good attitude!

  3. I am glad you are better now! I love the art though- the "girl" looks like she has a pissy attitude! It's a great reminder. And you are right inner children can't understand and reason. (And they show up unexpectedly sometimes) Keep the positive attitude going- there's a lot to be positive about!
