…when I set myself a challenge. Big or small. I announce it and up pops the gremlin, the part of my brain that for some reason wants to sabotage everything I try to achieve by feeding the rest of my mind with negative nonsense. It tries to put me off, telling my I can’t achieve the goals I’ve set, and I may as well not even bother trying.
If I could find a way to shut that gremlin up, I’d have a lot more time and energy. A therapist once told me that the best way of dealing with this little bugger is to shine a light in its face and say I see you, gremlin. I see you for what you are.
So this is me, shining a light in my gremlin’s face and telling it to STFU.
