Banish those mental blocks

Friday, October 05, 2018

This was a great article that I read this morning and much needed during my October challenge.


Breaking mental barriers is tough. Especially when you have struggled with it for so long.

I was looking at old pictures yesterday because 21 years ago on Oct. 4, I had the courage to ask my now hubby out on a date. We were paired up for my sisters wedding (of course I asked her to place me with him because he was so HOT!!!!) which had me smiling from ear to ear.

I was only 18 in this picture and as I looked at myself last night I saw a confident healthy girl. But back then, I was far from being healthy. I didn't eat right, or didn't eat at all. I didn't exercise. I wasn't taking care of my body.

Fast forward to today..... I try to take care of myself. I do struggle with eating right all the time but I workout everyday. So it does get frustrating to stay focused. You start thinking to yourself.... "well maybe this is the way I was meant to be". But it is not and turning around your mental blocks is the first step.

I know I can get down to feeling better about myself. I have been there before. My mind however wasn't fully trained so it brought me back to where I am today. So it is time to get my mind in order. I need to banish these mental blocks.

I am going to take this blog entry and really dig deep into the 9 barriers they listed because a lot of them applied to me. I'm hoping this will help me banish those mental blocks once and for all.

How about you? Do you have mental barriers? How do you overcome them?
