Know yourself

I was just sitting here thinking about how much being able to see myself clearly has changed my life.
Well, seeing myself clearly and loving myself anyway. One of my worst habits was I use to always feed the negative. One day my therapist told me “It takes ten positives to level one negative” Wow.
I had to make a conscious decision to become aware of my thinking and reroute it. This was so hard in the beginning because I had to remember to do it. My negative self-talk had become so ingrained it was habitual. However, the more I did it the better I got at it. This experience made me decide to look at myself more! I became aware of many short-comings. Habitual behaviors that took joy and happiness away from my life experience. Still today I will begin the old cycle. But it lasts shorter and shorter! I realized that the way I treated myself was why I could not accomplish things I really cared about. It also made me attract negative people. The more I changed, the more opportunities came into my life. Wonderful, loving, people came into my inner circle. The people and the world around me looked different.
Unfortunately for many of us this is a life long process.
It is up to us to show others how to treat us!
Honor yourself! Be kind to yourself! Be gentle with yourself and keep feeding the ‘good wolf’.
It is amazing what we can do when we commit to this change!
