Today's blog is about self talk and retraining your mind.
A healthy mind can create a healthy balanced life.
Our mind is like a sponge. It absorbs so much consciously and subconsciously and is constantly working to decipher the truth for us. We are in a world where we are consistently engaged, our truth is always being tested, our mind is active and it's becoming more difficult to switch off from the exterior noise.. where we can get inside our own heads.
For me personally, I consciously avoid a lot of outside noise, and work hard on a daily basis to only fill my time and mind with things that benefit my health.
'Your mind will always believe everything you tell it. Feed your mind with faith, truth and love.'
Self talk is one major thing I have had to work on over the years, stemming from not feeling enough, giving my power away, being an empath and allowing other peoples thoughts to have an impact on my way of thinking. It's been a long journey realising I am a pretty good egg, and that if someone is going to recognise my worth, I need to see myself as a good investment, know my own worth and become invaluable.
So I've made some changes to the way I speak to myself, which in turn has changed the way I feel about myself and the way I see myself. Therefore bringing in amazing people into my life who see my value, enhance my life and overall health by creating good experiences.
I speak to myself like I am my own best friend. Each morning, I look at myself in the mirror and instead of looking at the flaws that make me me, I don't allow my thoughts of not enoughness to creep in. I say 3 things to myself that are true... 'you are an honest person, so be honest to yourself. You are a kind person, so be kind to yourself. You are a giving person, so be giving to yourself.' Then I start my day with a mindset of enoughness, and not a lot can get in the way of a woman on a mission who has a self worth and self respect!
Speaking to yourself like you are your own best friend, giving yourself a pep talk, and speaking with kindness is a good morning ritual whilst brushing your teeth. If your mind can believe anything, speak honestly to yourself and be the person others see you as.
Listen to more inspiring things that align with self love, watch and read better (food for the mind) and stop being so jolly hard on yourself! You will never have this exact moment in time again, so don't waste it thinking you are not enough.
You are more than enough.
