Have you ever listened to your internal thoughts? You know the ones, Dear Bloggites, the little voice in your head constantly telling you this and that on everything you do in life.
I love to learn; and when I learn some interesting facts or a new thought process, I take notice. I am that person that hopes for the best and plans for the worst. Having that type of outlook on life, for me, allows me to enjoy the little things in life while being prepared for the unexpected.
That little voice or internal thought is my joy and pain. My joy because I know I can do anything I set my mind to do and usually when I make up my mind to do something, I rarely change it. But on the flip side of that, the inner thoughts are my pain. I am constantly catching myself doing negative speak in my head. You know the kind – “You’re an idiot”, “Stupid”, “Ugly”, etc. I hear them all the time trying to take forefront in my brain and it is a constant battle for me.
If you have ever spent five minutes with me, you will probably be surprised by this admission, but it is true. The negativity bleeds in my brain about myself a lot and I am constantly having to patch up the wound. That is why most people would be shocked to know that I even have one negative thought in my brain because I CHOOSE to embrace this Journey called Life and so whenever I hear the negative monster stomping up the isle in my mind, I slam the door shut and repeat positive thoughts that void the negative.
Doing this trick – changing the negative to the positive – is hard because you must make a conscious effort to really listen to your mind and thoughts all the time. Some days are harder than other days, but I keep the fight going because at the end of the day, I want to look at myself in the mirror and know I did right by everyone I was in contact with as well as doing right by myself.
What do you struggle with and how do you deal with it? Share your thoughts below. I look forward to chatting with you.
