I'm hoping that this blog is a way to find new inspiring ways to reach out. If I can make this blog a positive place then I that is what I'm going to do. My everyday chant, mantra, or calming effect is "I find new and better ways to love myself everyday"..."I find new and better ways to love myself everyday"...
When everyday is a chance to be happy then happy is what I want to be. It is a challenge for sure! In general I find myself saying things that are negative and belittling. I'm trying to work on that. Mentally being aware of my thoughts and actions is one step in changing them.
If I find myself getting upset with myself or i'm already upset and initially I don't know why, it is then that the next step comes into play. I HAVE to be aware of why i'm upset. If I don't then I'm in a downward spiral and it can take hours to days to get myself back on top.
Building my self confidence is a choice. Everyday I have a choice to make and I want to be able to be happy and confident. This is completely opposite of what I've been doing my whole life. With the right tools that I now have, it is just a matter of implementing them that makes them effective. Everyday I can and will choose to find new ways to love myself. Self confidence here I come!
