14 Mar Tales From The Chair: Positive Attitude Changes All
I decided to write about insecurities and a positive mind. People always tell me how positive and happy I always am. There was a time in my life I always cared about what people thought about me, but not anymore. I will never please everyone and i had to come to that realization. I have learned more then ever over the last few months that I can’t change people’s thoughts or actions about me, good or bad, I can’t change what bill I’m getting in the mail or what debts I have to pay, and instead of worrying about the “what ifs” I have taught my mind to let all that negative crap go! It doesn’t mean they disappear, but I just tackle them as they come instead of worrying about it. I know who I am and Its amazing once you teach your mind to “keep negative thoughts and worries” out, and to turn them over to a higher power, what a positive mindset you can keep. And trust me it took work to teach my mind to think that way!!! Its like a surgeon who has to study to be the best doctor, well I too had to study (my choice was inspirational books and the Bible) and “train my brain” to not try and control what I can’t, and its made me an extremely positive person. I know I am deserving of the greatest Joy (DB), I know I am worth all God’s goodness he has in store for me! Confident? Yes I am, but thats part of loving who you are and accepting your not perfect.
We all have insecurities, but I believe that you don’t have to let your insecurities stop you from being all you can be. Insecurities are just little voices in your head. Don’t let these thoughts stop you. Instead of fighting against your insecurities, you can transform them. My attitude now is: “So what? I have insecurities, but I don’t let them run my life. I’m okay just as I am.” I don’t fight my insecurities because I know, deep down, they’re not real. They are an illusion, and here to teach me a lesson. Besides as long as you are being the best person you can be, loving your hardest and genuinely caring about YOURSELF…Joy will find you!
