Announcement   I have created 34 Quirky Pocket Therapy™ sets. Each set has 10 different messages that I wrote to remind me that I have choices in life. And one of those choices is that I can choose to be my Very Best Self. Each message is a reminder that I need.

From those sets I have created bookmarks, note cards, singles, a yearly calendar and a calendar that can start with any month of the year, in addition to the sets that I sell in two styles.

I hope that you will find messages here that you want to remind yourself about too. And, if so, maybe some comfort that your issues are NOT yours alone.

Enjoy your visit to my shop!

About

I'm just trying to be my Best Self!!

I was at a regular monthly board meeting ... and I allowed myself to get WAY engaged by what people were saying and how people were acting. I felt compelled to respond, justify, explain, sigh. I was TOTALLY frustrated. The meeting moved soooo slowly. It drove me NUTS!!

But what it really did — was make me sick. I had to go straight home and go to bed and stay there the rest of the day. My health is not good and I had allowed myself to make me sick! This could not go on. Would I have to give up being a board member, but it was my only identity in this small town I now lived in. If I continued as a board member, then how could I change my reactions so being there didn’t make me sick??

I was talking to a friend and said, “What I need are, like, flash cards” that would remind me of the things I need to remember in each & every moment. Those things that I tend to forget until it is too late. I was joking, I thought, about flash cards. But then, I thought, I have a bunch of “business card blanks” from making myself fun cards to hand to people when I wanted them to know my address, etc. And I just loved the cute clip art that I had used on those cards. Hummm, I think I could play with that — and that might even be fun.

I made them solely for me. I never expected to even show them to anyone else. I took a lot of time to refine the words to reflect my exact need.

I used them at the next board meeting. I spread them out on the table and shuffled them around, depending on which issues were being triggered. And they helped me. They reassured me that I do have at least some control over my behavior. It IS possible to be on my best behavior, even if I can’t change my underlying issues. I can leave a board meeting and be tired, but NOT be sick.

And I have found the reminders on these cards are useful throughout my life. On a trip, at the airport, driving around town. These reminders make me feel like I can be the better person that I so want to be.

    My 1st set of my cards were created in an attempt to change my behavior and attitude. All of my cards are messages to ME and are the result of a life-time of introspection, therapy and a deep interest in things spiritual. I make everything myself.
