Life moves so fast, and we’re so distracted, that sometimes we just need to slow down, feel, think and just be.
Have you ever looked deep within your mind to notice the thoughts that occupy it most of the time? If you could be mindful of what you say to yourself, what would you see?
I often ask – why we are so hard on ourselves?
Why do we lose gratitude for everything in our life?
Why do we, at times, take on the role of a victim instead of looking at each experience as a learning opportunity to grow?
Why do we struggle in trying to find our place in this world, or within our family or friends? How do we find true inner happiness, coming to the realization that it all starts with us?
Studies show that we have between 50,000 and 60,000 thoughts going on in our mind on any given day.
Many of these thoughts are conditioned from years of habit and started during our childhood.
They then move along with us throughout our entire life, creating struggle, sadness, depression, and internal havoc. We often tell ourselves the exact same unhappy or hurtful things – day after day after day.
When negativity is a familiar thought, it’s what your mind will continue to do because it enjoys what it knows. Therefore, when we make the familiar unfamiliar, magic can happen.
