One of the things that is so central in my work with moms is helping women realize how powerful their thoughts and emotions really are. That it is our thoughts that create and mould our realties. This can kind of freak people out. People that are new to this concept often begin becoming overly sensitive to every thought they thing, assuming that each thought will have this immediate negative outcome in their lives (the thoughts you should be concerned about are the ones you think over and over again) and/or they get frustrated because they don’t know HOW to guide, shape and choose thoughts that feel good.
I get that! I thought it was hard at first too. Until I just got really focused and good at practicing the thoughts I would rather think. Our brain is a muscle right, and with any muscle for it to grow in strength and really serve us it needs exercise. So exercising your brain with these new and empowered thoughts that you want to think more often will take practice – let’s call it our Mommy Mind Gym!
In this challenge and for the next 30 days, I am going to be picking out one negative thought a day that we tend to think and that holds us back.
Each day I will then present “one version” of an alternative, positive affirmation. If this resolution resonates with you, then I challenge you to take on this new positive affirmation for the day. If you would like to alter the wording of the affirmation to suit you, then do that and post it on the Facebook page for all to read, but remember, use only positive language (no won’ts, can’ts, shouldn’ts).
Your job in committing to this is to write down this new affirmation and hang it in numerous places in your home or office. You are to say this affirmation and mean it (feel it as if it were true) 3 times a day. Do this for at least a week and notice the difference in your life.
