Ever since learning that we are what follows “I am” I have found such strength from it. I have been able to catch those negative statements I was telling myself. I have been able to not only catch them, but change them into a positive. I do my positive “I am’s” several times a day and it seems to be helping. I actually believe what I am telling myself. I feel restored, blessed, and content in my life right now. There is no greater gift that I could give to myself. I am working on changing the story I tell about myself.
My new story is: I am getting healthier everyday, I am kind and caring, I am content and loved, I am blessed, I am disciplined, I am fit and energized, I am beautiful and smart. I am the best person I know. 🙂 I am a great mother and wife.
I have learned that happiness is not the end all, but more of a journey. Something we have to be mindful of on a daily basis. If we allow our minds to run a muck without giving it direction or structure it will inevitable run that negative recording and bring us down. I am on the road to recovery. A road I will need to remain on forever.
