My Own Cheering Section

215. My Own Cheering Section

I was driving by myself to a home in New Jersey late at night. I had never been there before and knew it would be hard to read directions in the dark car. So I put the directions on a tape recorder which I knew I could operate in the dark. In addition I put words of encouragement to myself on the tape.

As I drove along, I pushed the “Play” button whenever I needed a new part of the directions. Sometimes I backed it up and listened to it again. I had the tape recorder on the passenger seat and could operate the controls simply by touch.

It was reassuring to have another voice in the car, to know that the directions were right there, and above all to hear myself saying on the tape, “Hey, Ann, you’re really doing well.” “Good job, Ann, you’re almost there.” and at the end: “Yahoo! Ann! You made it.”

So now I think if I have a day where things haven’t gone particularly well, or it seems like I’m knocking myself out and no one is noticing, I could do a similar thing. I can be my own cheering section: Way to go Ann.
