Speak Nicely To Yourself, Sheesh!
One of the biggest disgraces of being human is we have this wonderful complex mind that has a tendency to tell us things about ourselves that aren't true. We often speak of our imperfections, our shame for all of our seemingly wrong doings, our lack of credibility and confidence, or our self limiting behavior that keeps us stuck in the same sad place that we have seen time and time again. But there comes a time that you realize that this conversation just isn't working. In fact, the truth is, its these conversations that are holding you back.
I have often asked people to listen to that oh so powerful voice that seems to know EVERYTHING, and really listen to its words. Then ask yourself, if these words were spoken to a child, would they be okay? Most often the loud and powerful response would say "hell no!" So why do we think we can talk to ourselves that way?
For one, we rarely stop to realize that these toxic thoughts are really the evil contributor to our seemingly awful situation. We can take a seat in the back row, with our head down, scribbling on our note pad, and continue down this worthless path. OR, we can put our hand up, waving away these useless thoughts and say NO MORE! I am really a perfect being, and I love me exactly as I am!"
So today, and everyday, make note of what you are saying to yourself. Then start to add anything positive, loving, nourishing that will feed your soul. Not only will you be happier in your day to day living, but you will soon realize that your health improves, your relationships blossom and magical events really start to occur. But the most important thing about speaking positive to yourself, is that you will find the true meaning of unconditional love. Loving yourself, really is the best gift you can give the world. Hands down!
