“I choose to laugh about my “sometimes” list and focus on who I am as a person.”
Sometimes my Negative Nancy wins and I let the things on my “sometimes” win. BUT once I pause and shift my focus to the many positives that I AM, I can then be fair to myself and continue my day on a more positive note.”
