Thwarting Bad Thoughts

Negative thoughts are a daily struggle, and they tend to creep up on me throughout the day — most times before I even recognize they’re there. My goal? To take control of these thoughts before they have a chance to wreak havoc on my mood, and the rest of my day. Sometimes I’m successful. Other times, not so much.

This is just a reminder (to you and myself) that negative thoughts are normal, but you shouldn’t allow them to rule you. Acknowledge your thoughts, especially the bad, icky ones, and allow yourself to feel and then let them go.

This is definitely easier said than done, trust me. But I’ve been trying to put this into practice as much as possible. In the words of my therapist, “your brain can be a bully sometimes.” So it’s time you tell it to stfu, lol.

Essentially, be mindful of your thoughts today.

Peace and love.
