Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Affirmations – January 18, 2022

Eugi is the host: http://Your Weekly Prompt – Affirmations – January 18, 2022

I know I am late this week but affirmations is such a big deal. In a few of my posts I wrote about talking to kids to acknowledge you hear what they are saying. Affirmations can be said or thought and are a way of changing your thought process to positive. That is not to say everything is hunky-dory. This is like teaching kids to use “I statements” instead of blame.

This is all my opinion!

“You always argue with me!” can be rephrased to “I feel like we argue about things a lot” to make the statement less assertive and into a phrase the other person can respond to.

affirmation (ăf″ər-mā′shən)
noun

  1. The act of affirming or the state of being affirmed; assertion.
  2. Something declared to be true; a positive statement or judgment.
  3. The assertion that the testimony one gives is true and equivalent to that which would be given while under oath.

“All you do is ask for things when we are shopping!” yells the mom.
Instead: “We are shopping today for things on our list, nothing else. Next time maybe we can put that on our list”. That way it can be discussed instead of argued over.

“This is the stupidest idea to go today!”
“I’m not sure why we are going today, can you help me understand why?”

“You always complain about everything we do!”
“What do you like most about this?”

Costumery
: https://imprompt.wordpress.com/2021/10/31/october-31/

Put on a costume before you start to write. Decide to be someone or something you are not. (Don’t fight me on this.) You can be a princess. A prince. A poodle. A puddle. Mark Zuckerberg, a hamburger, Parisian, a soccer hooligan, your mom. Once you get everything set–shoulders squared, hem straight, feet tied on–think about something from your costume’s point of view. If you and your costume can’t agree, write using at least five of these words:foot,yard,back,fortune,game,apple,cemetery, own,underwear,drinking,improvise,sang

Halloween Party for Polynesian Warrior

I put one foot in front of another
just like a game played with my brother
no time for drinking, food or beer
just goofing off, friends standing near
out on a boat not on the ground
a quiet place without a sound
and then we chose to go right back
the front yard filled, nerves going slack
all of a sudden I hear a clang
like cemetery gates going “Bang!”
I jump and run in underwear
I improvise, a bike stashed near.
I pedal hard and pedal fast
Going home, safe at last!
