Heads Or Tails #107

The theme/prompt for THIS week, September 22, is:

HEADS - "Book"

Use any form of the word "Book" in any kind of post.


-----------------------

A friend asked me to call her this morning. She said she had gotten herself into a bit of a mess. I called. I listened. I offered opinions and advice. (I was asked first.) I don't have a BOOK to tell me what I should say. I just speak from my heart and occasionally throw in some brain for good measure.

What I need to do more often is have some intelligent self-talks. I had one with myself this morning after I got off the phone. Self, I said, why are you afraid to walk your dog? I said um.. cuz? Self said not good enough.

Self was right this one time. I walked the dog around the block.

I survived.

Wouldn't it be great if there was some kind of basic instruction manual at least. Good for you, getting out and walking Hannah, I'm sure she loved it.

Glad you are talking to yourself. Glad your self knew the answer. Nice that the puppy got to tour the neighborhood. :)

Talking to ourselves is so important. We're our best taskmaster.

Glad you got out. I had a similar conversation with myself today. It is so lovely and I felt guilty for not going out but I have still this lingering fear of bears although we haven't seen any around the property for a while. So I plucked up courage and wandered around picking mushrooms, but I still am always scanning the area and get alarmed at any rustle I hear.

I talk to myself all the time and most of the times I'm right. ;o)

From the heart advice is the best advice.
