Lately, I have been really struggling to change my thoughts. To change my old beliefs about worthiness and shame. To change the judgments and comparisons that race through my head and leave me trapped behind imaginary yet very real bars.
I become quickly frustrated when I trace down a thought, stop it in its tracks, and re-route it, only to have it come back not thirty seconds later, louder and more prominent than before.
Let me just say, it has been and continues to be a process. And a challenging one at that.
Good news is, according to this video, the battle I am fighting is very real, and just as tough as it seems. Better news- the more often I change these thoughts, the simpler the task becomes. Some much needed encouragement in this uphill climb.
And if I put on my long-term glasses, I can truly see that all this hard work pays off. That I am investing in my own freedom. That day-by-day, month-by-month, year-by-year, I have the power to shape my brain and to fill it with the peace I have always longed for.
Ah, peace. Now that is something worth fighting for.
