Working on my health , working on my stress management , I have become aware of some things.
A friend of mine gave me a compliment how I am so put together , I smiled and said thank you , when on the inside I was screaming " I dont know what you see, but I feel like Im falling apart!!"
Talking to my health coach I told him about that conversation , it made me feel good that someone really thought I was so put together, my thoughts were wow I should have been an actress , they think Im all together when Im falling apart here.
my coach said " why do you think you are falling apart" *pause in the convo* I answer,, "Well because I say I am, and I think I am!! So it has to be true right??"
NO!!!! Its not neccessarily true just because I say it and think it , does not mean its true,,
Thoughts when under stress can really play you for a loop, if I think things of myself long enough I can convince myself that they are true, even though in reality they may not be true,,,
So wow,, how powerful is that mind of ours??? So a challenge for me this month is,, in my mind about me and circumstances, decipher what is true , what is not true,,
So okay I am not falling apart, I am able to write and share my thoughts out here in the open with millions , I am identifying when I get stressed, how do I handle my stress, I have not ran to food every time , I am identifying what I need right now,,
I am realizing just because things worked for me in the past , dont really work now,
So does that sound like a person who is falling apart?? No!! I am finally after years and years of wondering what was wrong with me, able to identify things to help me with my process to be better, physically, emotionally, and mentally.
Who am I right now??
I am a person who will enjoy every day , be happy , and when stress comes remember it will pass its not here to stay, piece by piece I am being put together , and I am not falling apart in a million pieces,
So my friends, be true to your real inner self today , no more believing a lie, Oh another thought , If I believed negative things about me to be true how much more will I obtain to start focusing on positive thoughts about me?? Ill leave you with that for now!!
