Self-Reflection: An Intimate Date With Myself.
I’ve done a lot of this in the past months.
This being: SELF-REFLECT.
Everything that happens to you is a reflection of what you believe about yourself.
You can’t outperform your level of self-esteem or draw yourself to more than you think you’re worth.
All that we are & all that we do is a reflection of our MINDS & this is why I believe that EVERYTHING can be changed by OUR MINDS.
I like to see self-reflection as an intimate date with MYSELF.
An opportunity for me to sit down & just be.
To think about:
What I’ve gone through.
What I’ve overcome.
What I’m currently going through.
Why and how I must & will find the strength to make it through.
This MINDWORK (that I SO often preach) is humbling.
It’s the only way to better yourself as a person.
It allows you to look deep within your heart & soul & determine & understand why you react to certain situations the way you do.
HOW YOU CAN BETTER YOUR REACTIONS & learn to cope
Ultimately: BECOME THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF.
I am a reflection of my thoughts.
When I think happy, I radiate happy.
When I think positive, I radiate positive.
My life is the reflection of what I allow myself to see.
In recovery, I made it my mission to see:
These are things that I strive to radiate, attract & create every day.
On days when I don’t see as clearly, when I’m having trouble with my thoughts & when that radiance just isn’t coming out, I actively let the MINDWORK kick in.
I face reality & I don’t internalize it.
Blind-spots were part of my life for TOO LONG & quite frankly, they no longer have their place & I no longer see any worth in them.
Mindwork isn’t easy.
It’s an ongoing battle with YOUR OWN MIND.
But it’s what brought me where I am today.
Allowed me to grow.
To get to know MYSELF.
It truly showed me just how strong I am.
It allowed me to reflect on my past & traumatic events life has thrown at me.
Instead of letting them CRUSH & BREAK ME, it let me develop the POWER to leave them behind BUT to ACKNOWLEDGE that they happened & that they did, FOR A REASON.
That reason is THE WOMAN I HAVE BECOME.
