Stop It Before It Starts

I caught myself today worrying about how others perceived me…at the dentist!  Really? What a waste of time; time that I could have spent:

  • Making a difference
  • Viewing others with compassion and interest
  • Concentrating on my work
  • Remembering my value…which is not dependent on someone else’s appraisal or evaluation

Although I wish I hadn’t slipped into the temporary “insanity” driven by an overactive ego, I am thrilled that I caught myself in the act! That’s progress! In the past, I would have been unaware of my inner dialog and ended the day wondering why I was:

A. Unfulfilled

B. Anxious

C. Angry, or

D. Depressed

With just a little awareness, I can stop the slide into those states before it is too late, while there is time to bail.
