And then I heard my father’s voice…
I forgot to write my usual blog post last week. I really did. I didn’t even remember that I had forgotten until my husband, who does the technical posting for me, asked me about it.
Besides that, I didn’t post any professional article on Facebook or Medium as I usually do, and I let the Amazon ads for my books lapse! I was busy having fun instead, but that is another story.
I did not plan this break, it just happened, which would be fine except for some leftover old rules I’ve been following for so long I had forgotten they were rules. Once I realized my lapse, I heard my father’s voice criticizing me. He died 30 years ago, so, of course, the voice was my own.
I was criticized harshly for making innocent mistakes when I was a teenager, so I learned to remember all my commitments—a useful skill most of the time. But that leftover harsh voice was probably unnecessary in the first place, and I hate hearing it now.
I used the 3 basic Logosynthesis sentences to reclaim the energy frozen in that old experience and relaxed. The voice retreated and I started thinking about my priorities.
After so many months of pandemic limited activity, fun is now included in the priority list.
And if you need to reorganize your rules and priorities, use Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®) to release your unnecessary rules as well.
