Day #21! Wow….January is flying by!
For years, I had so many mind blocks. Some of them were just a by-product of the way I grew up and the things that were told to me over and over and over again…..like, “you’ll never amount to much” + “you’re doing life all wrong” + “you need to change this, that and the other thing first” plus a whole long list more. As I’ve mentioned before, you hear something enough times – especially coming from someone you are supposed to trust – and you eventually just accept it, believe it and worse – live it.
But some of those blocks I put in place all on my own. Maybe somehow they took a twisty path back to growing up but honestly, who knows. All I can say for certain is they were there. Big ‘ol walls that were in place to protect myself. Or so I believed.
And how did they protect me? Well, they for sure kept me from living my best damn life!
I didn’t think I deserved a damn thing.
And that’s exactly how I lived my life. Because I believed it.
My dad always used to tell me – “What you think about, you bring about.”
I’m a BIG believer in the laws of the universe. The laws of attraction. And after doing (and still doing!) so much work within myself, I KNOW how you think every moment of every single day guides your life. It brings you the good stuff….but it also brings you the ugly stuff. I’ve seen the power behind shifting your thoughts. I’m living it!
Want to know how strongly I feel about this? If I had to pick just ONE platform to speak about for the rest of my life, it would be this. MINDSET.
We’ve all made mistakes. Bad choices. That’s just being human. The good Lord knows I’ve made my share and He also knows I’m probably gonna keep making them. And that’s okay! But where the problem lies is when we beat ourselves up over them and let them lead us down that ugly path of “I did this so I don’t deserve that.”
Because it’s just not true.

Trick question? You figure it out!
