I’ve decided to carry on with the rambling method and just pray that someone will tell me to stop when they have had enough. Maybe I’m assuming that everyone is as forthright as me but as it’s all done behind the safety of a keyboard maybe I’m just not creating enough of a stir to get a response at all!
Apart from my ever supportive mum of course….love you mum! I honestly can’t think of anything where my lovely mum hasn’t supported me 100%. Don’t get me wrong she doesn’t always agree with what I do but she does support me. If you are lucky enough to still have your mum in your life then make sure you appreciate her. I know they can be really annoying sometimes (sorry mum…..remember the “love you” comment above xx) but seriously please appreciate them while you’ve got them.
Just a little caveat to the above paragraph……if she is a weirdo mother who has never lifted a finger to help you in your life and only ever looked out for herself. In that case you might want to put her in the “don’t need you in my life” bin and happily move on with your life knowing it’s better without her in it.
Anyway, I digress. If you’re new to this blog then you will need to get used to that, this blog is quickly turning from a structured accountancy style document into something much like my every day conversations….it lurches from one subject to another until we get back to the subject we started on. Unless we are talking accountancy at which point I then become uber professional, obvs!
So, back to the thing I forgot. The Chimp Paradox. One of the things that Arbonne encourage you to do is to read self help books which, I admit, is not something that I am really into. I’d rather sit down with a good novel if I’m honest. But I went to a networking event and listened to a lady speaking who recommended a book called The Chimp Paradox and it has changed my life! I’m not going to insult the great Professor Steve Peters by trying to explain the whole concept in my little blog but it talks about your subconscious mind and your conscious mind and the chimp on your shoulder. Learning to control my chimp and knowing when it is the chimp reacting and when it is the human side reacting has helped my relationship with Mr Roberts massively. Not that the he knows about the chimp. Can you imagine??? Every time we have a disagreement out would come the “it’s the chimp” line….you know ladies like the “are you getting your period?” question.
Following on from this massive shift along came the amazing Jo Howarth. I met the amazing Jo at one of my networking events and, although having already known her for a couple of months, reading The Chimp Paradox made me realise that I needed to do something about my subconscious mind in order to move forward. Now, just like the previous paragraph about The Chimp Paradox, I am not going to try to explain exactly what Jo does but lets just say that she teaches how to choose happiness every single day!
More on my hypnotherapy another time and what it is that I think needs to change and if, like I said at the beginning of this post, I completely forget to come back to it comment and remind me please………….memory like a sieve
Hope you enjoy the ramble!
