The War With Yourself
Are you at war with yourself?
“The state of your life is nothing more than a reflection of your state of mind.”
I’m not good enough
I’m too fat
I’m too ugly
I’m not educated enough
I’m not loveable
I’m not smart enough
I’m not pretty enough
And I’m sure countless more toxic thoughts that would cycle in and out. How exhausting!!!
I mean really! Even writing them out feels horrible.
An email today reminded of one of my favorite quotes by Marianne Williamson:“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world.”
So why do we fear this light within us? Why do we sabotage our own happiness and ourselves? I waited my whole life for some magic potion or genie to come out of a bottle and save me. Instead I let the gremlins in my mind take over time and time again.
Where are you playing small? Is your desire:
starting your own business
moving to another home or country
finding the relationship of your dreams
leaving a bad relationship
ending a toxic friendship
finding your life’s purpose
going for that big dream or goal
enjoying a more full life
Are you defining yourself based on your negative self worth? Based on this negative false persona that’s running your life? It’s hard to break free of this, I know. It’s actually innately threatening to make these kinds of changes to what has become your identity. So what do we do? How do we change this negative self-talk, this ruling unworthiness?
So, decide today that you’re going to be happy no matter what! Decide today that you’re going to begin to change your mind. Decide today that you will stop that negative chattering gremlins in your mind. Here are two books that help me on this journey: Conscious Language by Robert Tennyson Stevens & Leveraging the Universe by Mike Dooley
Start creating your bliss today!
