If we looked inside one another's heads and viewed the thoughts they felt about themselves, what kind of movie would we be watching? How would we feel about who they are based upon the reel of thoughts they felt on a daily basis? Hopefully, we would see a beautiful flick that showed love, joy and happiness!
How often do we treat ourselves as though we are the main "Star" of the movie? For me, I always felt as though I was being selfish if I focused on what my desires, dreams and needs were. When you're flying in an airplane, the safety speech goes something like this: "If there is an emergency and the cabin loses oxygen, please place your own mask on first before assisting anyone else." I always felt it was more important to help other's with their masks prior to my own, not understanding that if I was to pass out, I would be of assistance to no one!
Part of this thinking came from years of programming that I was taught as a young girl. I'm not playing the blame game in regards to this programming, but what I recognize is that I learned this along my path as a young girl, and I can also reprogram myself to think in a better light. A light that aligns with balance and love; a light that better represents how I feel about myself in the present, rather than continuing to listen to the old programming that no longer serves a purpose in my life. As I have learned before, saying these things is much easier than practicing them, however, if we consciously make the decision in our lives to live a certain way, it then becomes part of our purpose in life, and we want to actively live in the new way that we set out for ourselves.
If your anything like me, wanting to do something is very different than having to do something. The ideas, things or people we WANT in our lives, we find a way to keep in our lives. However, when we HAVE to do something, it's like we all of a sudden we forget, can't find time, or just don't actively think about the ideas that are placed into our minds. If we want an idea to remain with us, we find a way to prioritize it, and allow it to take root within our mind, and when it takes root, subconsciously, we create new pathways for change!
I had fun creating this video of a time in my life where I felt powerful, happy and aware of who I am. I hope you enjoy and gain value from these words, and this video!
Light and Love,
