“It is the mark of an educated mind to entertain a thought without accepting it”-Aristotle
How many bad messages are you accepting from the moment you wake up? How many self-criticisms were you raised with? Change the paradigm. When you hear a negative thought in your head, stop and say the opposite out loud. Not only will you be surprised what self-limiting things you think about yourself, but hearing yourself say the opposite is strangely awkward… but awesome. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God, as the scripture says. But, don’t you think that applies outwardly about the gifts of God in you? We tend to believe what others say about us, even though they are rarely true. Most often, it is someone close to you, who is projecting onto you, their own fears or insecurities… and you believed it.
So, don’t accept that you are your father’s son or your mother’s daughter. Or weak, lost or confused. You are loved by your Creator. Made just right. Full of capacity for all things. Able to be accepted. Naked in your weakness, and still wholly loved. “I am capable of change. Better than ever. Kind to myself and others. I am generous and insightful. Driven and successful. Happy with my life. ANYTHING else is not where I want to be in a year, who I want to become, or an accurate measurement of being loved.”
