Day Off

Something really traumatic happened to me yesterday that I'm probably never going to talk about with anyone, so don't ask.  I'm taking the day off to settle my nerves and regroup.  Tony bought me some herbs from the Naturopath to help me get through it and over it and I went into Borders to help me find a book to deal with it.  Of course not only am I shocked out of my brain that I'm going through it, but there aren't any books on it at Borders so I bought a book by Janet  Street-Porter instead.  It's called, "Life's Too F***ing Short," and I wanted to share what she wrote on page 10 because it's something I always want to remember.

WHEN YOU WAKE UP,
LIE STILL FOR TWO MINUTES

Recite over and over again:

I AM BLOODY BRILLIANT.

I AM GREAT.

I AM NUMBER ONE.

UNIQUE.

I LIKE ME.

I AM WORTH IT.

I AM HIGHLY INTELLIGENT, NO MATTER WHAT OTHERS MAY SAY.

You have to do this, because, take it from me, no one else is ever going to tell you that in the coming twenty -four hours.  To value myself is the single most important thing I have learned over the years.  No one ever did me a favour.  No one ever gave me a career break out of pity.  I did it all for myself.  By believing in myself.
Janet Street-Porter.

(She is truly awesome.)

I think your awesome. Especially with our food blog thing.

I'm not vegan myself, but if I ever chose to be, your blog is the first place I'd look for recipies!

Thank you, thank you, thank you. You are awesome too. Thank you for taking me into your home and looking after me until I found a place to live when I moved to Sydney all those years ago. YOu're a kind and generous person. *hugs*

If you're never going to talk about it, why post it?
