A New and Improved Inner Voice. Franks Sunday Service

Last night my spouse & I were reading various sections from the book Alternative Cures by Bill Gottlieb. There was a section for procrastination. I did not know that was a medical condition but I guess procrastination can lead to stress & stress can lead to many physical issues, so there you go. Anyway there was a little highlighted section about changing the way a person's inner voice sounds to halt procrastination.

The idea was that if you have an inner voice that is loud, angry & critical, to instead change that voice to a soft, sweet & even sexy voice that is more suggestive of following though on whatever the next step may be, rather than be berated by an pissy voice that can stop one from progress.

This suggestion got me thinking. I decided to put it to use today. This week I have been a bit lazy about praying because of a lot of home improvement projects. So this morning I allowed a sweet, happy voice to merely suggest I consider praying because I like to. It totally worked.

I'm going to work with this whole kinder, gentler inner voice & see what happens. It's better than beating my self up mentally for sure & may help me balance a bit better. We'll see!

P.S. To H. I love you!
