SUPER SLEEPY whilst recording, but I had some thoughts tumbling round my head about attitude, considering others the way we want to be considered, how attitude affects others, and how our attitude towards ourselves can impact our relationship to others and our attitude towards them…or theirs towards us.
New year, new episode of TBD With LDT! I didn’t make any “new year’s resolutions,” but I have made conscious choices about what I want going forward. I want to love myself. To say yes to myself. Audre Lorde sagaciously said: “we have been raised to fear the yes in ourselves.” This is true of millions and millions of us: we have gotten “NO” from so many sources that we have internalized that No, to the point where we may have forgotten how to say YES to ourselves. For myself, I am choosing to say yes by taking better care of my physical vessel, by loving myself first (so that I can continue to love others), and by saying yes to personal growth and change…. like starting the year single. Thanks for listening to TBD With LDT, and I hope your new year brings you much YES!
