Self-Reflection: An Intimate Date With Myself.

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:

CLEAR.

POSITIVE.

HAPPY.

LIFE.

LOVE.

HOPE.

FUTURE.

NEW.

CONFIDENCE.

APPRECIATION.

WORTH.

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.
