change your story. [a re-post]

from tiny buddha:

Change the story in your head.
Sometimes when you’re in a bad mood, it’s tempting to cling to a story that justifies it–and then retell it over and over like a picture book you’ve heard a million times. And then he said this…And then I did this…And then I messed up…

Visualize yourself closing a book and taking a new one off the shelf. Then start telling yourself a different story. One where you’re not a victim. One where you’re not powerless. One where you’re accepting what happened, and moving on so you don’t lose anymore time to that other book.
so many times, we are punished by our mistakes but we don’t let it end there.  we continue to punish ourselves long after what’s been done is done.  get over it, i say!  i should take my own advice.
