It wasn't until recently, 2014 to be exact, I started working on changing my mind. It is an ongoing journey. Today I am 80% better than when I started. Along the way, I have realized, when I changed my internal dialogue, my life changed, is changing.
Saying it out loud is 100 x's worse. If you are trying to lose weight and all you say is; I'm so fat. Guess what? you'll stay fat. If you are trying to overcome some physical malady and continue to tell yourself and the world how bad it is, guess what? you'll likely not overcome it. If you are financially strapped and keep saying "I'm so broke." you'll stay broke.
I've done all this to myself and more. Everyday is a challenge to keep perspective on my life and bless, not curse myself. For me, lately, it's been; "I'm so tired". This morning I wondered to myself; "Why am I so tired?" BING, the light came on. Because I continue to SAY; I'm so tired. UGH.
It happens so innocuously and creeps up without so much as an awareness.
Today, I am so grateful and thankful to be:
teachable. . .
Fantasizing the freedom to become what I believe I can become. Be what God says I am; Blessed, loved, chosen, adopted, redeemed and forgiven. AMEN
