and don’t look back.” Hearing those words can be encouraging but difficult to live out!
-Are you trying to be a better YOU but you can’t stop dwelling on all of the bad things you’ve done recently?
-Are you trying to forgive someone but you keep allowing yourself to think of all the reasons you can’t?
-Is your weight loss or financial goals in a rut because you won’t LET GO of all the times you failed?
When I allow my mind go off in a dark place of thought the result is always the same: I FEEL EVEN WORSE! We can usually tell when we are headed down the road of negativity or depression. The gOoD nEwS is we have a choice on whether or not we are going to detour those thoughts!
As my mind slips in that direction I immediately say to myself “I am NOT going there!” I have to repeat this numerous times throughout the day as my mind tries to fall back into bad habits, but most of the time it works.
Life is a constant pep-talk. We have to push ourselves to think right, make good choices and act appropriately. Those areas in life don’t always come easy. If your mind begins wondering in the wrong direction, do yourself a favor and remind those negative thoughts that YOU are NOT going there!
