DONE WITH CRUMBS....

One of the great things about the new year is taking stock of last year's behaviors. Looking back on last years feelings I have come to realize that I settled for so little from people. My expectations were high but what I accepted was so little...crumbs.

If I am honest with my feelings and my actions about accepting crumbs then I have to confess to being afraid to ask for more. AFRAID TO ASK FOR MORE! Because when you ask for more you run the risk of hearing there isn't more to give or worse...I don't want to give you more. Oh that is painful. And so I accepted crumbs because crumbs seem better than nothing....right? WRONG WRONG WRONG AS THE DAY IS LONG LONG LONG!

Aha! I know better. I will do better. I will be better. Back to the basics...back to square one:
  1. I AM WORTHY OF TIME BEING SPENT WITH!
  2. I AM AN AMAZING WOMAN!
  3. I AM SMART. WITTY. AND CHARMING!
  4. I AM NOT ACCEPTING CRUMBS. FROM ANYONE. AT ANY TIME. ANYMORE!

You go girl. No crumbs from a job and for me it is so important not to give crumbs. To do unto others as I would like done unto me.

LadyLee said...

No more crumbs!

Really though.

And again, I love those affirmations. Needed those when I was, uh, 15. Where were you then, BABZ?

I love your declaration!

If you're not assertive for yourself, then who the hell else can you be assertive for? Don't ask for more, declare it!

I love this post!
