Perfection and beauty is in the 👁 of the beholder...change how you speak to yourself from the inside first and then walk past a mirror and take it all in! I guarantee your vision changes☝🏽 whenever you are feeling insecure (cause it happens to us all) just look in that mirror and yell 🗣 imma bad ass mamajamma 🤷🏻♀️😂😂 and walk off😫🤣🤣🤣 🧜🏼♀️ #itworksforme#loveyourself#ketotransformation#ketoselfie#internalconversations
Walking past a bar today I had an internal conversation that went along the lines of, "I need boxes for packing. I should stop in and ask if this bar has any. Ohhh, they're probably too busy and will expect me to buy something..." Then I thought, "I'm supposed to be practicing getting people to give me things and here is a great opportunity to do just that. I intend that they will give me some boxes without having to buy anything." And they did. I also had a great conversation with the bartender learning more about their business and his if/then for purging clothes. If it hasn't been worn in a year and a half then it gets donated. I like it. And even more so, I like that hee wanted to help me, a stranger. All I had to do was ask.
Long story cut short I finally got myself out for a run...been struggling mentally with getting out and getting on with it. (I will pick this up another time). But the story I DO want to share is that it reminded me that, in amongst my muttering about a bunch of other stuff to the running coach last week, I included I was fed up with it being so hard.
He asked me, something along the lines, do you think it is still hard because you are going faster?
What he meant was, it wasn't getting any easier because I wasn't letting myself off the hook. I keep pushing myself. So a run a year ago, could feel as hard as this year, because during each run I am pushing myself.
Well yeah.. maybe... duh!
So yes, now it's got me thinking about how else that shows up in my life.
Where I might be occasionally muttering about how hard something is. But it's only hard because I am not leaving myself in cruise control with what is easy. I am continuously learning new things, trying new things, pushing myself to change my mindset, heal my wounds, improve my communication, my skills, my self awareness (you get the idea right?) Now yes of course there is a balance to be achieved between being happy and striving for better. Understanding the why we are doing it so we can come at it from a good place as much as possible.
Still, it's funny how sometimes the blindingly obvious isn't obvious to us. Hope you found it useful.
In the meantime I shall work on me reducing even further, my muttering about how unfair it is that certain things are soooo much easier for others... after all I can't always change that..I can only change me... If only it that easy eh... but I am human and still work in progress after all. 😉
What about you?
What’s the soundtrack in your mind?
Today’s workout was a first - it didn’t have sound - on purpose. The only cue was “next” and the only sound was the tapping of feet on the step.
Our goal was to listen to our internal sound track because you aren’t always going to have Shaun T in your ear encouraging you.
So when you rely on your own thoughts, motivation and drive to get your through something - what does it sound like?
How many times have we had this internal conversation before???? Our brains are not friendly to new ideas. Its default setting is 'that which has been tested and proven equals good and that which has not been tested and proven equals bad.' Our brains don't like new ideas because new ideas are risky. Our brains have no context to understand how the ideas would work in real life. That's why we UPSHIFT! Shift from reptilian brain thinking up to neo-cortex thinking by asking questions that build the necessary context around new and innovative ideas.
Yoga matımı yere serene kadar iç seslerim: “Bugün boş ver, yarın yaparsın, bir günden bir şey olmaz. X’in mesajına yanıt ver. Bulaşık makinesini boşalt. Seminere şunu da ekle. Al kitabını kahveni terasta keyif yap. Y’yi ara. Çiçekleri sula. Seans var, danışanın raporlarını gözden geçir. Hava güzel dışarı çık. Facebook. Instagram. Markete git. Şunu yap. Bunu hallet. Yoga yapma da ne yaparsan yap!” Kolay değil tabii, içe dönüp kendimle yüzleşmek😜 #yoga#dailypractice#yogamat#hathayoga#internalconversations#içsesler #sabotajcı#gratitude#namaste
