Positive Thinking!!

       I usually wouldn't write a post about positive thinking, and your probably wondering why I'm posting about something that is not going to help you workout more, or eat healthier when that's all my blog is about.... But what I'm about to share changed my life and yes, helped me out with my fitness career and my life altogether and that's why I want to share it with YOU......

        Eating healthy and living healthy makes you look and feel better right? But what most of us don't realize is we have to feed our minds with positive and healthy thoughts to keep us going the right path in life as well. One thing I never wanted people to say or think about me is that I'm "lazy". I hate that word and lazy people can drive me up the wall. I have always been on the go, up and moving, on to the next thing in life... But what I didn't realize was just how LAZY my mind was. I kinda thought I was doing OK in life for a while. I mean I get up, I take care of my husband and kids as best as I can. I run every morning, go to work, and workout after work. But what I'm not telling about in my day that's hard for me to share is after the day is over and the kids are to bed, I go to bed thinking of everything that has hurt me. I remember all the people that have done evil to me. I remember all the mean things that have been said about me on social media, and most of all.... I remember EVERY SINGLE hurtful thing my husband had once did to me years ago. Or maybe he hurt me the day before by not letting me know I'm beautiful. He was a jerk a time or two in our marriage and when we were dating. OK.... more than just a time or two. And this one girl I don't really know.... OMG she said some nasty things about me one time ALL OVER SOCIAL MEDIA... NEGATIVE NEGATIVE NEGATIVE running through my mind. And yes it drained me, I was stressed, I would complain to my spouse about it. I would take the hurt out on people I loved. Or I would hold it in, pretend I was fine, and find myself in a horrible mood where no wanted to be around me.

    After admitting to myself that I need to change my mindset and literally REPROGRAM my mind, it was absolutely life changing. Its like magic. As cheesy as that sounds it really is. Its so hard and simple at the same time I don't know why I didn't think of this the first 20 years of my life. Its like I literally moved into a whole new brain. My brain had naturally been trained for years to go to bed at night thinking of all the horrible things that has happened to me. And I let it have the power to do so on its own. I decided one day I have power over my brain.. I am stronger than my thoughts and I will go to bed thinking positive thoughts only, I will wake up thinking positive thoughts only, and I will LIVE thinking positive thoughts only. It sounded easy at first but its not so easy when something negative comes your way. Thinking positive isn't going to make you rich, prevent someone from bumping into your car, clean your house, nor will it take away your medical bills. But positive thinking will make you wanna work harder to make more money, look at the situation in a better way, feel blessed to HAVE a house to clean, and be happy for the doctor that possibly saved your life. After I worked so hard to train my brain.... its like I reprogrammed it to automatically go to positive thoughts. Not to mention I notice people love to be around me more and its  made a dramatic impact on my relationship with my hunky hunk husband. I really can't believe my mind was so lazy... I LET THAT INTERNET BULLY GET TO ME... like why???It is life changing...it truly is.

      Not only will people view you in a better way but you will view yourself in a better way. I use to think my boobs were too small, I hate having type one diabetes, being 4''10 is awful, my nose is too big for my face, not to crazy about my teeth, I get acne, my feet are a kids 3, my mom can run farther then me, people know I fart.... etc .... Now I think more of my boobs are small but thats ok, I get the privilege to help others who struggle with my disease, I'm short but it makes life fun, my nose holds up my glasses rather well, my teeth could be worse, I have makeup to cover my acne, my shoes are cheaper, my mom is my biggest motivation in life, ALL WOMEN FART, and I am beautiful no matter what...

      I use to do things like sit and stair at the elliptical I run on every morning and think "I'm tired today" "maybe I will just do half the time today" " I don't really wanna run right now" and literally half to drag myself on the stupid things some days. After I changed my whole mindset I found myself thinking "Thank God they invented these things"or "I'm gonna run longer today". When my crazy three year old son breaks something now, I find myself laughing, or taking a picture to post on the Internet about how silly and crazy he is instead of getting angry about how much it cost and why its broke. ITS BROKE nothing you can do about it now but make the best of it right? I have come to realize life is as simple as "think it in your mind and you can have it"... You want to become a marathon runner? Your first step is to THINK it in your mind and ASK yourself how you can make it happen, and most of all you have to BELIEVE in yourself. If you don't believe in yourself it simply won't happen. It is THAT easy. You want something.... GO GET IT.

  1. posted on your insta. guess i should have posted here. great thinking! Positive things comes to those who take the effort to think positive! I try to live by the phrase "Let it go...just go with the flow." you cant always control the situations around you, no matter how hard you try, but you can control how you react to those situations. keep on truckin!

  4. I'm glad that you have found a great way to use the amazing human brain. I faced some huge challenges myself in 2014, but I was able to put everything into perspective by focusing on where I needed to be, mentally.
    My husband and I have a few personal development books and they were extremely helpful.

    I am using my blog to encourage strong minds, but it is in it's infancy...I need to commit more time to it. If you'd like to take a peek: ndarbz@blogspot.co.uk

    All the best

  6. I agree! I feel like I am my own worst enemy most times. I have a lot of empathy and understanding for others and their situations, but can get so down on myself especially about fitness and eating well. I work very hard at it every day but I just can't seem to let up on myself and my thinking is negative. I really really need to work on this and I do know that. It is super difficult for me to do but I know it just takes little changes to work towards a whole different mindset, it's just a matter of actually doing it. I also totally relate to reacting to things you can no longer change, this is something I have to tell myself each time something happens. Complaining about it won't fix it, so it's just wasting your breath. Thanks for the reminder, I needed to read this today.
