I’m a firm believer in the idea that what we think determines a lot of our outcomes. I guess Huffington Post blogger, Rachael Yahn, is a firm believer as well because she listed 8 toxic thoughts that should never cross our mind:
- I am lonely.
- I don’t like my body; my body isn’t good enough.
- I’m not happy in my job/career.
- I am hard to love.
- I don’t have enough money.
- Life is unfair; good things don’t happen to me.
- I don’t know what I want to do in my life.
- I never get what I want in love, life, work, etc.
I chose to do a blog review on this post because the thoughts Rachael listed are very common. What’s uncommon is for someone to not think any of these things daily. We all owe it to ourselves to change our thinking. As long as we have control over our thoughts, we have control over our lives.
You may be alone but you are not lonely. Somebody loves you, baby. Whether it be a grandmother or a life partner, someone’s world would end if you left the world today. You love your body. You love your body so much you’re willing to get in the gym and change what you don’t like! If you can pay your rent, bills, and still go to bed fed – you have enough money. You’re rich in wisdom, and in your spirit and that doesn’t come with a price tag.
Since when has life ever been fair? Have you ever thought about all of the things you have that others don’t? It’s okay to not know what to do in your life right now. It’s okay to have options that are all equally important to you. It’s even okay to feel like nothing is important to you. But find something to live for, and find it soon!
#8 used to cross my mind so much! I had to remember that whatever is for me is for me and it will never be anything that will harm me emotionally, mentally, spiritually, or physically.
Let go of what you think you deserve and be patient and see what He thinks you deserve.
I’m going to leave you with 8 thoughts you should hold on to:
- I am loved.
- I wouldn’t be me without my flaws.
- I am exactly where I’m supposed to be at this very moment.
- Someone who is willing to love me unconditionally is going to love me one day.
- I have enough money to read this post.
- Life has always been unfair but I’m blessed because some people don’t have theirs anymore.
- I will find my purpose in life soon.
- What I want for myself is nothing compared to what God wants for me.
