Thoughts are only a small part of this experience. But lets face it, they’re the most in our face and so sometimes they feel most personal and precedent. Mine even speak in my voice.
“I am bad.”
“I am weak.”
And they’re our thoughts, our most vulnerable truths only known to us, and so we trust that their vision is somehow adequate.
“You’re not good enough”.
“You don’t deserve this.”
But we can’t even trust ourselves to bypass a cookie when we start a new diet.
Let me tell you this: We are not just simply *what* we think about who we are. You’re not fat just because you ate a cookie.
Why is it easier to indulge in self defeat than it is to bask in our success or glory?
You can feel bad without being bad. You can feel angry without being angry, feel sad without being sad. And the truth of it all is really this- it doesn’t have to get ugly, if you don’t want it to get ugly.
You have the power to change your version of your truth, to put your mind to work.
Be molded by the experiences we inherit and prevail from, not merely defined by them.
The truth is life is all about becoming.
Even if you don’t understand what it is *exactly* that you’re becoming.
It’s going up against your most inner thoughts alone and fighting that good fight.
And the funny thing is that most of us will never even arrive to our becoming in full tact because most of us will listen to those inner thoughts. A lot of us will quit.
But not me. I put those thoughts to bed. I’m one of those people embracing my becoming.
“You can do this”.
“You are strong.”
Im quieting the thoughts that talk down to me, not becoming the thoughts that I think.
“You are good”.
“You are valued”.
You are not all of the thoughts you think about yourself.
You can do this.
You are more than this moment. More than the next. You only become what you make the choice to manifest. Think kind thoughts to yourself, after all, you’re the only one who can hear them.
