“I wish my gut wasn’t so big!” Why can’t my hair cooperate?” “I hate my skin.” “I’m always breaking out!” “I’m just not good enough!” “I’ll never be able to do it…..”
If you are like any other human being in the world, you have probably said one if not all or more of those expressions. These expressions I like to call thoughts. They have the power to haunt and plague us if we give them enough power. Thoughts can be quite the enemy, or sucker of life, if we allow them to be. Once we have this thought and we start to believe it, well you now have officially submitted yourself to its death. Well maybe death is a hard word but think about it for a minute. Your day is going normal when all of the sudden you see your wonderful co-worker Karen and she has it all together. She is looking ‘on fleek’ with her shoes and designner tote to match. Clearly this woman has it together, and what was your morning like… Uh terrible. It all started with clothes that didn’t get washed, children that wouldn’t get out of bed, perhaps a toddler going through a stage, and to top it off there is no more milk. Life is a mess and its only 7AM in the morning. You drop the kids off at school… oh some peace…but wait you forgot to finish putting your make-up on and only one eye has eyeliner and no mascara. Oh my! You finally get to work then someone spins around right into you, there went your coffee and your blouse. Needless to say you wish you could restart your morning, but you just dismiss that wish like you do every morning because well its life, until she appears. Oh yes! The mother with everything together. All of the sudden your cubicle is filled with smoke and you want her to pay for being ‘so put together.’ Like a tidal wave thoughts come rolling in like the next big hit song that doesn’t stop playing. The tune may be catchy but boy is it deadly. After a while, you feel depressed and that nothing or no one can help you out of this mess, besides the Super Nanny. So what do you do? Do you allow those thoughts and situations to stir up those emotions to determine who you are?
Well let me show you where our fine mother went wrong. There is nothing wrong with her morning or children, even though she may think otherwise. We have all been there! Each of us have had our fair share of crazy unlucky mornings filled with mess. So if it wasn’t the horror filled morning, what was it? Glad you asked, right when she saw Karen what did she do? She started to compare. Then from there she believed those thoughts from comparison and decided to allow her day or life to be ruined by one moment of judgment. Well my friends, comparison kills! It will leave you dead and dormant to who you really are. It is time to stop judging our day to day crap with someone else’s glory moment, or as others have put it – highlight reel. You cannot judge your crapy day with their good one. Plus you have no reason to compare in the first place, your life is so distinctly different than everyone else’s. You are unique. There is no one else like you on the planet, unless you are a twin than I guess we’ll let you complain… Nope! You are different! You think, talk, and engage with people different. There is no one like you! You are the only one who can do you! So its time to stop comparing and start living! Be who you are, because its who you are that will shake and change this world. Stop complaining, stop comparing, and start being you!
More to come on the power of thoughts!
