You are capable of shifting your story, and therefore, the direction of your life.
If you could listen to a recording of your inner thoughts, what would you hear? Would it sound something like this?
I look fat.
My skin is awful.
I can’t figure it (whatever it is) out.
I sound stupid when I speak up for myself.
Maybe your recording would not exactly sound like that. Maybe yours is different. Whatever your recording sounds like, ask yourself “how has this impacted my story so far?”
It’s time to check yourself.
Consider this. Give yourself a day. Note any thoughts that pop up about yourself. Then, when you have time for quiet and reflection, examine how you talked to yourself.
What did you tell yourself? How did that make you feel in that moment? For the rest of the day?
Do you know that what you say, you will become?
Do you know that what you think, you will become?
For the next week, I challenge you and myself. Each time negative words or thoughts surface about yourself, shift them. Change the direction of those words. Make them words of love and abundance.
Make your recording become…
I am happy, healthy, and well.
My skin is radiant.
I can overcome any challenges that come my way and learn the lesson in them.
I am empowered when I speak up for myself. When I speak up for myself,
people listen and respect me.
For the next week, and every day thereafter, look at yourself in the mirror each time you pass one. Say something nice to yourself (aloud if possible!).
We are meant to live in joy. Choose words that will continue to nourish your mind, body, and spirit.
“If it is true that your thoughts shape your life, would you want what you were just thinking right now to become true for you?” (Louise Hay, You Can Heal Your Life)
