Giving Yourself a Hard Time for Repeating Old Patterns

Sometimes we find ourselves looping around the same old stuff and then we start to beat ourselves up because we think we haven’t changed at all. That’s never true. You might touch some of the same stuff, but the aspects will be different, or your feelings will be different and your resources and view point will be different.

It’s all part of life’s rich tapestry and the best way to get through those times is to notice what’s happening and treat it as information, something that’s useful to you and then to focus on something that makes you feel good, that lifts your spirit. When you do that, energetically you’re in a much better position to deal with the stuff that’s come up and sometimes, when you don’t go into the old beating yourself up stuff, you might even notice that it’s not as important as you thought it was:)

When you do the tapalong below you can your own favourite things, I’ve just put some mine there as an inspiration:) Happy tapping!


Even though I loop round the old stuff, I’m OK

Even though I loop round the old stuff and I can’t believe I’m here again, I deeply and completely accept myself

Even though I’m here again, I forgive myself, I’m doing the best I can.


I forgive myself,



I wonder if I could

Maybe I could,

because it is true I’m doing my best

Even if I’d like my best to be better

Maybe this really is the best I can do right now and maybe that really is OK…Maybe:)


Even though I’m here again, I choose to recognise how far I’ve come to get here

Even though I’m back to beating myself up, maybe I could see the message this is giving me, use the information and celebrate that I noticed what I’m doing!

Even though this feels old stuff I choose to acknowledge it and focus on the things that make me happy


I love the sun

The world is beautiful

The flowers are so uplifting

Listen to those birds

That butterfly is amazing

Maybe I could enjoy a coffee or a tea

Maybe I could snuggle into a blanket,

Maybe I could go for a walk,

the possibilities are endless

and they all feel better than beating myself up,

so they’re much more use to me,

so maybe I could gift myself some time to be me

and enjoy what’s in my world

and who I am.

Tomorrow’s another day

and I intend to enjoy it, and this one too!!


P.S., watch out for my new website and courses, coming very soon, and farewell to beacon training after all these years. I’m getting very excited!
