Honestly, I’m a bit incessant when it comes to my mistakes. I tend to analyze, ponder, lament and grind them up in a blender (pressing repeat, of course). Amidst that, I hear internal voices that help to propel this negative behavior. My own personal, self-inflicted hell. Well, I used to think that way.
Through intentional work, I continue to change my perspective. Nowadays, I don’t dwell on my mistakes (too long). I’ve learned to let go of those things quicker. In fact, I tell myself, “What’s the point? You can’t change it now. Just drop it.” This practice works, and I cycle through it as much as necessary.
I’ve learned to think differently, so much so, that I wrote myself a note in my phone to help keep the crazy voices away. I stand in front of the mirror and declare these things to myself. I try to perform this everyday, but especially on the days that I feel out of it.
You should try to write a list encouraging yourself, too!
Until Next Time,
Love & Peace.
