Darn inner critic!

When I finish my morning routine after the kids leave for school (open windows, make beds, tidy up rooms, take previous days clothes down, sort by colour, start washing machine, take garbage out, clean kitchen, tic, tac, tic, tac ...), I have about an hour to surf the net before my Pilates class.

Whne I read Jamie´s question "What do you want to change?" for the Wednesday Wish Cast my first thought was ... Nothing! Polish? Yes. Make better? Sure! But radically change ... nothing.

I was happy. So happy. I was grateful. I truly experienced gratefulness. Grateful for my fire place that I saw upside down while exercising. It looked cute, even upside down, I love that fire place. Grateful for my silly dog that was making the Urdhva Mukha Svanasana (Upward Facing Dog) with me. Grateful for having found gratefulness.

And then it hit me. The first Inner Critic thought. Darn! Completely unexpected. In the middle of a yoga pose (the class after Pilates is yoga). And it took me down.

Downer than down. Bewildered for the change of pace. Fighting franctically for my wellness feeling again. And of course it hadto start to rain. And I ran around the house closing windows, yoga peace forgotten.

What do I want to change? That. The "you can´t feel that well for too long". Shoot.

We all have those moments. But the great thing is that we still get back up and get going. Love all of your gratitude:)

Tell that inner critic that your change for him/her is to find someone else to pick on!

I love those absolute moments of pure bliss & gratitude. love them.. I know the inner critic that you speak of.. have had them many times but have learned that, when those inner critic thoughts hit.. ya just gotta go with it.. let it have its silly little say..then politely say: I hear you but I don't believe a darn thing you say.. thanks for pointing it out though.. see you!

sounds very odd talking like that but it has worked for me in the past.

I wish for you what you wish for yourself. xoxo

May gratitude take up so much space that there just isn't room for that inner critic :)

That inner critic has a lot of power, but you have more.

Those are moments in our lives and they remind us how blessed we with what we have now. Have a great one!
