I'm on Day #5 -
THE INNER VOICE is a powerful tool. If we re-program ourselves to listen to it, it can help us make decisions. The reading for the day made quite an impact on me. I couldn't wait to put it into practice. This morning, I needed to take a shower, but my inner voice was telling me that it wanted to stay on the computer and play. I DID take my shower, but afterwards I needed to eat something for breakfast. I was thinking of something healthy, like scrambled eggBeaters, but my inner voice wanted left-over Peach Cobbler. I had eggBeaters & whole wheat toast.
Could my inner voice be defective? I thought it was supposed to reveal the truth and help me make GOOD decisions. Then I thought back to a site I used to visit. It was called Bratland, & one of the main characters was Nellie, the Brat. She was Pam Young's inner BRAT! I get it! I need to learn to quelch my inner brat and re-train my brain to listen to my inner voice. It might not make sense to anyone else, but it makes sense to me. Out with the old and in with the new. My inner voice has always been there. I just didn't want to listen to it. I wanted instant gratification. I wanted ice cream right before I went to bed. I didn't want to wash the dishes or clean the toilet. I wanted to sit around in my robe all day,watch TV ,and eat cold pizza and Dove ice cream bars.
The good old days are officially GONE! It's time that I grew up and took responsibility for my future, and time to make peace with the past. But while I'm dealing with my issues and healing from the past, I can't allow myself to get emotionally paralyzed like I have in the past.
I think being aware of my inner brat, which I will refer to as Sassy from here on, will make me more aware of the power of my inner voice. I will have to be more discerning and decide what voice to listen to. The voice of TRUTH or SASSY, the brat...I want,I think,I feel...
It's up to me!
