Reining in Your Thoughts…
My mind is can be a valuable tool but it can also be a hindrance to my overall well-being. Have you ever had a thought that lingers and grows instead of passing through? My thoughts can become intense and grow to epic proportions! Make no mistake…a busy mind is a gift and a curse!
There are times when I can think of something and create greatness; other times I think of something and create a whirl of anxiety and frustration. I am making a conscious effort to flip negative thoughts and use them to further my progress instead of allowing them to create stagnation. I will not claim that this is an easy process but I will acknowledge that it is becoming easier to manage each day.
I’ve discovered part of my issue stems from being an impatient perfectionist. What an awful way to live: harshly judging yourself, setting unrealistic expectations, demanding way more from yourself even when you’ve given your all and just never feeling like you are enough. Well knowing is half the battle right? I am finally putting together the pieces required to live harmoniously.
Before thoughts consume me, I stop, take a deep breath and regroup. Ask myself whether or not my intuition is leading this charge or if I am just going off the deep end? If deep end is the answer (LoL), I actively flip the thoughts so I can focus and resolve the matter. I’ve learned that you truly are what you think and I prefer to attract more positive energy than negative. Have you ever noticed when one thing goes bad…everything else seems to fall apart? It’s because you are actively multiplying negative energy.
Reinventing yourself is not an easy thing but it is well worth the rewards you will reap. Stay away from negative people, images and anything else that does not resonate with your spirit. You can see, hear and feel the garbage in our world but do NOT consume it! It’s also helpful to remember you are NEVER alone; don’t be afraid to reach out to people you can trust or even people not so familiar but who can offer you positive guidance. I’ve found nourishment among people I’ve never actually met in person; Beautiful Spirits shine brightly.
Wishing you Love, Peace & Blessings…
