I'm a binger.
I'm an emotional overeater.
I like to eat a lot.
Food is my vice.
Food is my only pleasure.
I'm a hothead.
I'm high maintenance.
My life is completely over planned and complicated.
I'm a stress ball.
I can't manage my stress.
I have no control.
I'll never own a home.
I'll never be able to save money.
I'll always struggle with money.
I'm a complainer.
I focus on what I do wrong.
It's amazing the labels I've given myself over the years. And you know, saying them over and over again makes them real. It makes them become my reality.
I'm ready for a whole new set of labels.
I eat to nourish my body and feel great.
I renew in very healthy ways like yoga, breathing, and playing the flute.
I eat seated, slowly and mindfully.
I take pleasure in life and in being present.
I have space in my life.
I keep things simple.
I breathe and take walks when I feel stress.
I have an abundant life full of love and joy.
I live within my needs and beneath my means.
I enjoy saving money.
I earn enough to save, live comfortably and enjoy life.
I look for the good.
I see progress.
I focus on what's going right.
I give myself credit.
I'm positive and full of gratitude.
These are my new labels. And I'm going to repeat them over and over again, and really be mindful of my speech, because I know that my words, beliefs and thoughts have great power. I know that change is possible, because I'm seeing it happen already.
Do you have any labels you might want to revise?
