Words Matter (Yes, I talk to myself! Part 7) by Lemons and Lavender

Words Matter We have to step up and be the person to encourage ourselves. The one that pushes us to be more, do more, and not quit. What we feed ourselves, we do eat! So let’s be more aware of how we talk to ourselves and what we actually say. I have to admit that I have many occasions even now when I catch myself be unkind to me. This has to stop and I…

More Than Enough (Yes, I talk to myself! Part 6) by Lemons and Lavender

More Than Enough (Yes, I talk to myself! Part 6) by Lemons and Lavender

More Than Enough We need to hype ourselves up! No comparisons to others but to who you used to be or who you want to be. Celebrate when you look at who you used to be and who you are now. Look forward to taking a step every day toward that person you are working hard to be. Celebrate every small step forward. We have to talk to ourselves! Tell yourself who you are and…

Know Your Worth

Know Your Worth

Know your worth. Before he died, a father said to his son; “Here is a watch that your grandfather gave me. It is almost 200 years old. Before I give it to you, go to the jewelry store downtown. Tell them that I want to sell it, and see how much they offer you.” The son went to the jewelry story, came back to his father, and said; “They offered $150.00 because it’s so old.”…

This is between you and you! (Yes, I Talk To Myself Part 5) by Lemons and Lavender

This is between you and you! (Yes, I Talk To Myself Part 5) by Lemons and Lavender

This is between you and you! When you tell yourself that you are more than able…more talented or good enough to accomplish the job, it is not a dig at anyone else. This is about you and your inner critic. I have one of those, I am sure I am not the only one either. This is personal! As we grow, there is an older version of ourselves that we are leaving behind. THAT is…

Raise your Standards (Yes, I Talk To Myself Part 4) by Lemons and Lavender

Raise your Standards When I say we hold ourselves to a higher standard, I am not talking about in comparison to someone else. We all know that comparison is a huge thief of joy so let’s not worry about what the next person has achieved (unless we are taking advice on how to be better at what we do because they have been there). You know what you are capable of becoming and it is…

Affirmations? Yeah, OK (Yes, I talk to myself! Part 3) by Lemons and Lavender

Affirmations? Yeah, OK (Yes, I talk to myself! Part 3) by Lemons and Lavender

Affirmations? Yeah, OK I do like the idea of affirmations and I do use them often, especially when I need to talk myself off of a ledge. In some cases, they are not enough…they are too soft and gentle. They can be too subtle and quiet. There are times I need to shout myself into submission. I need to know just how much I really mean that thang! If you are someone who wants more…

Use Me By Emmanuel Brown

Use Me By Emmanuel Brown

Use Me How’s It Growing? Using me is fine, just don’t make the mistake if abusing or misusing me. Life is full of ups and downs, but we must remember that the downs even have a high point. People could turn their back on you, but turn around to face you. They could try to tear you down when they believe that they are on top of things, but uplift you when they need a…

Self Talk…For Real (Yes, I talk to myself! Part 2) by Lemons and Lavender

Self Talk…For Real (Yes, I talk to myself! Part 2) by Lemons and Lavender

Self talk…For Real You can either produce positive or negative self talk…periodttttt. That negative self talk will tear you down, make you feel less than human. Why would you want to sit around and talk sh*t to yourself? Honestly, when I am talking to myself in a negative tone, it feels like bullying. I wouldn’t let anyone else talk to me like that so why do I tolerate it from myself? It is a challenge…

Yes, I talk to myself! (Part 1) by Lemons and Lavender

Yes, I talk to myself! (Part 1) by Lemons and Lavender

Yes, I talk to myself! It is true! I do, even more so since the pandemic. One thing that I have learned in all this chatter is that the way that I talk to myself is actually the way I see myself. When I really paid attention to what I was saying to myself, I saw what I was doing to my confidence. We can either build our confidence or completely break ourselves down with…

Looking Out The Window by Emmanuel Brown

Looking Out The Window by Emmanuel Brown

I found myself looking out the window and realized that it’s been a while since I have written anything about myself and that is probably because I know that I have fallen short in a few areas, but I have become accustomed to being perfectly imperfect. This is one of the reasons why I speak on faults that I see in myself to get my point across and then try to keep it moving so…
