It’s day two and I see some ladies have joined in the challenge along with me! I’m tickled pink! Self love is so important. Day two prompts you to
“get rid of a limiting belief that you have about your ability”
I have social anxiety disorder so my brain has the ability to tell me all the time no matter I’m doing that “I’m not good enough, I’m not going to make it and I never complete anything.” No matter what it was. Whenever I would try to go back to school self doubting thoughts would creep in and choke the life out of all my dreams. I cheer for my friends completely their goals. Inside is secretly grasp at my own. I lived my life “safe” for 32 years. Never taking a risk, never taking a chance but always longing for more. Each time I’d get the courage.. I’d knock myself with belittle thoughts. I was never very good at math so my mind twisted that too “You will never get into RN school, you’re horrible at math..why even try and feel that disappointment, you have a job, you’re an LVN Be Content” so I was content. Content with life and content with limiting myself never reaching my goals. Until one day I just thought “there has to be more to life than working to pay bills.” I felt stuck in one place.. I was! I was stuck in the self imposed prison of my mind. The beauty of the mind is… it can be changed!
I decided about a year ago to change my way of thinking and to be in charge of my own happiness. Instead of pumping negative thoughts and energy into my brain I focus on simple mantras and small task. I tell myself “you have more power than you think, you have the power to be great” when negative thoughts flood my brain I mentally lost 10 things I’m grateful for. When negative thoughts crowd my mind I paint pictures of my future goals and myself accomplishing those goals. It’s 2018! IT’S MAY 2018… I am throwing self doubt in the trash for good this year! It’s gone banished! It has no place here!
What are limiting belief are you getting rid of today?
