Every day you wake up – you make the decision, you decide what your day is going to be.
In every situation – you decide how you are going to react, you decide what emotion you will portray.
In some cases people are told they are ill whether it be mentally, physically, whatever and those around them coddle and enable the victim mentality. Embedding those reactions in your mind.
We are programmed by our surroundings and things that are repeatedly said to us as a child or even in our adult life. Personally, as I was growing up and in to my teenage years people (including my family) would call me a bitch. Now I’m not going to say that I was a perfect angel, but when people are saying that about you and putting that label on you .. You being to believe it and you begin to subconsciously embody that persona more.
Your mind is truly an amazing thing.
I firmly believe that our very own mind has one of the largest influences on our quality of life. “Change your mind, change your life” – I truly believe this.
If you are reading this and you are anything like I used to be, you are rolling your eyes right now saying something along the lines of “what freaking kool-aid did she drink!?”
*People are attracted to my positive energy and kind nature
*I live a happy and healthy life
Changing your thoughts can be an exhausting process in the beginning. You find yourself doubting the affirmations you are repeating to yourself, or muttering “this is stupid” from time to time, but then eventually you’ll find yourself recognizing negativity toward yourself and even others, and you’ll start to memorize some positive affirmations, you’ll find yourself trailing off into positive thoughts and life goals, then you’ll start to smile a little more, anger and frustration slowly decline (anger is an ongoing battle, but nowhere close to how I used to be).
Positive affirmations have become a huge part of my life and I cannot even explain how powerful they are.
I am not saying that you will magically be happier overnight, but positivity and positive affirmations work!
My challenge for you is to at least give it a try – at least for a week!
