negative thoughts that go unnoticed create real, lasting unhappiness.
I learned that there is always a thought to be identified. I woke up feeling crappy for ‘no reason’- but there is a reason- it’s because I was having negative thoughts from the second I woke up. I loved how I was able to feel grateful and more happy when she said to live as though I already have everything I need. This morning I was stressed about money, and needing to buy furniture, and not having enough, which was enough to bring my whole mood down! But then I thought, wow, I do have everything I need, and I’m so grateful for that. I don’t need to live in survival mode anymore, in a lacking mindset, I’m not struggling, I am okay. Living in poverty before creates a very real anxiety and shame around not having enough money/food/things. But I have enough, I am enough.
