Words from Sara:

Cotton-headed Ninny Muggins.*
 
Has anyone ever called you a name before? Accused you of acting ___________? Words like dumb, selfish, mean, and lazy. The next time someone accuses you of something, see if you can stop yourself from getting defensive. Instead, say nothing. Walk away from the situation if you need to. Get some distance so that you can reflect and ask yourself the question: where and when in my life, if not actually in this moment, have I shown this trait? At some point, you have. At some point again, you will. And guess what: the person accusing you of acting ___________ also acts __________ from time to time. When you remember that you have the same positive and negative traits as everyone else, it’s easier to take accusations less personally. In your moments of non-defensive reflection, you may even gain insight into the other person’s point of view, which is much more helpful than allowing yourself to become offended.
*Name that movie.

You are 100% Responsible For Your Thoughts and Feelings (Adapted from an original blog post seen on saramcevoy.com)
 
Your brain is a clever organ. It does not like idleness. If you are not actively using your brain by learning, creating, or thinking empowering thoughts, then it will create instead disempowering thoughts and impulses. This is not necessarily a bad thing, since we can use these undesirable thoughts and impulses as clues to remind us when we’ve strayed from what we really want.
“I really messed that up.” “I’m so embarrassed.” ?“I’m so stupid.” “I’m ashamed.” “This is killing me.” “I can’t handle this.”
At first, just recognizing when our thoughts turn “negative” is all we can do–we may not be able to change them in the moment, but we can at least improve our self-awareness. Self-awareness isan important part of learning and can lead to meaningful change in your mindset. Like tying a string to your finger, learning to recognize your negative thought patterns can remind you when to reset and start thinking in a more self-affirming way. This reduces the likelihood of you making choices out of fear or reacting emotionally.
Challenge: see if you can catch yourself this week thinking in a disempowering way–maybe you’re internally beating yourself up, or complaining about someone or something else. Don’t judge or feel guilty when and if you do catch yourself. Just notice it. Then take a deep breath.
