Motivation Monday!


THANK GOD IT'S MONDAY! As much as I love Friday I have grown to love Monday too. I'm not sure what it is, but there's something refreshing to me about feeling like I start a new week with a new mindset. I try and outdo the person I was last week, always striving for better and there's nothing wrong with that. Sometimes I feel like these Motivation Mondays are somewhat of a reflection on my life. I wake up and see what it is that has been bothering me, what I need to work on. So today, I feel like I want to talk about the most controlling thing ever, OUR MIND. 

I am so guilty of letting my mind over think for me. Different situations and scenarios that play in my head make me anxious, nervous, mad, or sad, you name it! The majority of the time, NONE of this ever happens! Our mind is a powerful thing but it also can be destructive to us. It is then that we have to learn how to control our mind and use it for good. See the good in everything and think things into existence, GOOD THINGS. The more we think of the negative and things that we fear, they get closer and closer to coming true. 


A lot of the things that I think about are unnecessary and cloud my mind of the good truth. I get blindsided and miss the goodness in my life; My healthy life, my house, my car, the fact that I have a stable job, loving family and friends. I lose focus of the irreplaceable things in my life because my mind wants to wander off into the bad zone. I fail to see that these are the things that keep my life rich and full of love.

 If I continue to believe a certain thing, it will then become a habit that I don't need. I read somewhere that the more you think bad things, you grow a garden of habits in your mind. Train yourself to only create GREAT things in your mind. It is seriously so exhausting when my mind kicks into overdrive and won't stop, but I make it stop; for my own good! And when I learn to control what I think, it becomes so refreshing and amazing! Let go of the negative beliefs that you have and allow the good to come to you. Believe that all good is coming to you, and IT WILL. But you must make it a habit to believe the goodness. Grant yourself the courage to believe positively and you will see the power you hold within yourself to create the life you want. 

HAPPY MONDAY!
