"Believe you can and you're halfway there."
Why is it so hard to believe in yourself?
I understand that it’s a lifelong habit of negative self-talk I’m working with, but for a while now, I have been saying,
“Okay, I’m ready to love myself! You can stop having those thoughts! Let’s think this way instead!”
but time and time again, I find myself going back to this old idea that I’m not good enough.
That statement is entirely false, but if I think it, it shows up in my life: I don’t sing as well, I don’t dance as well, I second guess myself, I close up, I limit my actions out of fear, I say less, and I feel like less of a person.
The more I realize the power of my thoughts, the more I realize the importance of using my thoughts to work for me rather than against me. Each day, I can take another step towards loving myself, even if “old habits” show up. I just need to love myself even more in those moments. A friend of mine posted on facebook, “Be the person you needed when you were younger.” In those moments, I have to be that person. I want share another quote/affirmation from a book I’m reading by Ernest Holmes:
"The Law of Good is continuously operative in my life. I am always equal to any task set before me. I am confident of my ability to meet every situation. I can solve every problem, overcome every difficulty. Realizing that Spirit knows no obstruction, I have implicit confidence in Its ability to operate through me always, and under every situation."
So basically... I got this and the Universe has my back!!! I can do anything if I can trust in myself. It’s easy to fall back into old habits, but I say no more!!!
When my new, positive thoughts become habit and replace the old, negative thoughts, my life changes drastically. I want to give in completely to thoughts of loving myself, believing in myself, and knowing I am worthy, because I AM WORTHY!!!
YOU ARE WORTHY!!!!!!!
WE ARE WORTHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Till next time, Y'all.
