“I think and think and think, I've thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it.” — Jonathan Safran Foer
One of the biggest reasons we worry about things is because we believe that if we don’t, it makes us a bad person or that we’re not doing everything we can to live up to our full potential.
What’s ironic about this vicious cycle of suffering we put ourselves through by worrying is that it directly prevents us from being the highest versions of ourselves.
Take a few moments to imagine yourself at your best, where you feel alive, full of love, joy, and abundance.
Is that version of yourself constantly worrying about what will or will not happen?
What is that ideal version of yourself doing in the present moment to feel at peace?
What is that ideal version of yourself where you feel completely fulfilled and full of joy thinking in the present moment?
What did you learn about yourself by answering these questions?
What will you change from this moment on to embody the truest version of yourself that’s free from negative thinking and worrying?
What will you do when you catch yourself in a negative thinking loop to break out of it and come back to peace?
The way to create permanent change is to remember the answers you came up with to these questions and to use them in real-time during your day as the negative thinking patterns come up.
Make this a central focus for yourself for just one week, and pay close attention to how you feel when you are able to break the pattern. You’ll be surprised at how different your life can look and feel once you prioritize your peace.
I believe in you.
With All My Love,
