"You've been criticizing yourself for
years and it hasn't worked.
Try approving of yourself and see what happens."

Louise Hay

    2. You are so welcome, Friend. I know how my heart hurt when we lost our Border Collie and I just wanted to offer a bit of comfort. xo

  2. Don’t criticise yourself. It never helps. And try not to criticise others. That doesn’t work well either!
    However, let’s be honest here; I am one of the untidiest people in the world. That’s not criticism that’s honesty. And I try to live with untidiness. Most of the time it’s OK. The Chef says it’s fine. I don’t know Louise Hay but I’ll take the Chef's advice.

  3. So very true Betsy. I've gone down that road, and found it to be a dead end of sadness. If God made us in his image...and cares for the birds of the air...then I have to believe I am valuable. Thanks for a good word of encouragement this morning. Hugs.

    1. So very true. We can be so hard on ourselves, only seeing our flaws or believing the negative
      things others would have you believe. It's a deep pit to crawl out of if you've been there for years.
      We all need to be kinder to ourselves, I think!

    1. It's just your eyes, David. haha.

      No, it's Rae Dunn pottery. Hand thrown and left asymmetrical on purpose.

  5. Hmm my ocd has a bit of a fit
    That isn't so round where you sit
    Can I approve of my ocd doing that?
    Good quote for any blog mat

  6. Hi Betsy - sadly so true for many of us ... yet we all know we're perfectly good and able to cope. It's when we need to be gracious as we adjust in life ... then accept gracefully ... I reckon you be doing pretty well!! Life can knock us though ... yet we know we're lucky ... keep the positivity forward facing ... take care - cheers Hilary

    1. Positive thoughts are always the way to go! I think we forget that sometimes!

  7. I agree. I believe we are harder on ourselves than we are on anyone else!
    PS - I like that mug!

    1. Yes, that is very true. But occasionally someone toxic can get into your head
      and after years of it you start to believe it!
      Thanks about the mug. I have several, and as a coincidence, they have positive
      words on the fronts. :)

  8. Words of wisdom. I needed to read this and have added the quote to the notes in my phone. Thanks for sharing it, Betsy.
