Day 4

A day late on this one.. but I did watch my internal dialogue both yesterday and today. I posted a picture of my new dog, Bo, who we got 2 1/2 weeks ago, because he is a pretty important factor in my inner dialogue at the moment. He is a great dog and I'm glad we got him. He is also a source of extra stress right now because he is more of a handful than the breeder explained. So, I'm noticing what happens when I'm stressed - more negative thoughts basically, more depressive thoughts, more self-critical thoughts. But this time I caught it - I knew what was going on and I'm making some moves to decrease the stress. I'll watch my thoughts to see how successful I am. My mind is somewhat like the water reflecting what's around it.

Bo is a sweetheart! I rescued a dog from the animal shelter almost a year ago and it was a good 4 to 6 months before she had properly settled in. Be gentle with yourself!
