Do I appear insane while I build lamps? Another yeah.
I don't really love that kind of job, and I'm not super confident with such things. I'm very against negative self-talk though. When things aren't going well, I am careful not to say things like, "I can't do it! It's too hard! I suck at this!"
Instead, if you were watching me, you'd hear things like this over and over:
"You're doing a great job! That's okay...you can just do that part again and it will be fine. Good girl! Aaaaaaannnnd....GOOD! That's SO GOOD!!!" Nice things to say, but perhaps a little creepy when I'm home alone.
I love my lamp.
