There are so many lovely awards out there. And the odd quirky one too. But today I am awarding myself the Slack Blogger Award.
Let’s face it, I deserve this one. I have neglected my online writing lately [although done heaps on the novel]. I am so slack that I am not even going to design the award badge. Nope, I am just going to imagine it.
And instead of giving myself a hard time about it, I will embrace it. Accept my laziness. Because I think we can only change what we don’t fight. Fighting a quality we don’t like only tends to hold it more firmly in place.
So, here’s what I accept about myself today:
1. I have a chocolate addiction. I manage to abstain for long periods but people always seem to offer me some and I can’t say, “no.”
2. I say whatever is on my mind without thinking, but rarely, “no”.
3. Sometimes I unplug the phone and pretend I’m not home.
4. The used teabags occasionally end up in the bin, instead of the compost, especially when it’s nighttime and the compost bin needs emptying and I’m too lazy/scared to go tramping into the garden at night.
There’s more, but I’ll leave it there, because I’m too slack to write them down. And I accept that.
What one flaw will you embrace about yourself today, without judgment, without guilt? Oh, and please feel free to accept the Slack Blogger award if you feel you deserve it.
