It appears that at some point in the last six months I stopped being angry with myself for failing to match up to my own expectations. Was it a gradual process? If there was a switch that flicked I cannot recall the moment when it happened. All I know is that tonight as I tried to motivate myself to do the numerous tasks that should be done to make life run smoothly and listed the things that had not been done I heard a voice in my head say "You have been busy and you are tired, don't expect to do everything, be kind to yourself". Where did this advice come from? Have I unconsciously absorbed it from something I have read or finally listened to MrM or has the advice that I give other people bounced back to me? Is it a permanent change or just a temporary outbreak of common sense? I don't know the answers to these questions but it feels like a good thing, this letting go. It is never too late to start being kind to yourself.
