Self-talk. Helpful or not so much?

Well I don’t know about you but it’s been a ‘bit of a time.’
Lots’ going on all round.
In husband and Polly land, that would be IN ADDITION TO Polly’s self-induced Law Schooling.
However, today I am feeling optimistic. Feel free to call me PollyAnna. There is a plethora of contrary evidence to weigh us down but not enough to do us in. We can do it! We are Mighty. And the ‘We’ is for anyone who wants some genuine encouragement. At this point, Polly is relying on her wits to get her through and hoping to encourage her fellow class-mates (and general readership) to do likewise.
DAY AT A TIME PEOPLE.
And when in doubt, Polly does this:
That’s likely why I feel calm for the first time in a while (well, since Tuesday when I last went swimming). I am enjoying the zone of post-swim calm. See. Healthy/Fun things are neat. I don’t often believe my own hype. So I will publish this to remind myself: swim, Polly, and encourage others to find their calm-promoting endeavor. To my faithful SheScoops readership: as I front-crawled my way through the water – I decided to write. We need to encourage ourselves.
Polly, take this as a self-serving post (when don’t I?). Even if you are talking to yourself – that is the frickin’ point. I know you don’t really want to; I know your brain comes a little wired to knock yourself down but stop it. Stop it. Stop it. We can do it. Yes we can.
