Saturday’s Question: What’s Your Inside Voice?

Not your polite indoor voice, but your internal dialogue. The voice that speaks a million words a day, unheard by anyone but you.

Is it harsh?

Critical?

Judgmental?

Does it make excuses?

Make believe?

Make enemies with yourself?

Is its tone shameful?

Fearful?

Mean?

Does it like to play the victim?

Play a role?

Play out worst case scenarios instantly?

Would you allow it to speak to your mom like that?

Your daughter?

Your colleague?

But…

Are there times it’s gentle?

Kind?

Loving?

How’s it feel when it’s full of grace?

Encouragement?

Hope?

What’s it like when it speaks in strength?

Resilience?

Grit?

Isn’t it nice when it tells the truth?

Deals in reality?

And doesn’t let fear call the shots?

How amazing when it believes?

Has your back?

And goes for it?

It’s tricky though, huh?

(Who the hell do you think you are writing to people about their own interior journey, what’s it matter anyway, shut up and delete this…)
