The power of choice sets the tone of our life.
The power of choice opens up our minds to new possibility to reframe really crappy life circumstances to learning experiences.
Reframing enables us to practice gratitude and find joy in the present moment and OWN our own life.
Knowing that this reframing and reprogramming our mind to be better all lies on us can be really scary and almost paralyzing.
Wether we sink or swim it’s all on us. Taking complete ownership means we accept our actions and reactions and CHOOSE to actively be better.
While I can sit here and tell you all the magical ways and non magical ways reframing tools have worked for me I can’t tell you what reframing technique will work best for you.
Because we are all so different and we all view the world differently because of our past and present experiences. Which is amazing because we are all rare gems 💎 but it also doesn’t make it the easiest because there’s no step- by- step guide on being the best you.
What I can tell you though is that our mindset is everything. When you have an emotion, let yourself feel it, be aware of why you’re feeling the emotion, don’t put yourself down for feeling human emotions (that’s weird-huh? How we feel bad for feeling bad 😔.) It’s a double edge sword 🗡
1) I personally can attest that the double feel bad method does not work! 🙅🏽♀️ So the answer is to show up without ridicule and the process. The answer may be that there's nothing you're supposed to do right now other than- not double judging yourself.
2) If you’ve mastered the not double judging- lean into observation without judgement. (If you’ve made it this step! You are killin it!! 🙌🏼)
3) Once you’ve mastered observation without judgement really lean into reframing your current thoughts.
4)Once you’ve reframed your current thoughts start acting with implementation. As much as saying things is cool (like I’m gonna workout 🏋🏻♀️ 5 days a week and build all the muscle 💪🏼 it only works if you put in the work.) So get to it and tag me because I love seeing you all thrive. (@nataliekfitness)
5) If you’re still feeling all the feels this may be a time for you to really dig deep. In the depth of your soul and the aloneness sine we rarely take this time for ourselves. (This is a step 🙋🏽♀️ I am currently taking say hi if you’re with me.)
The thing is- there is so much input, so much insight and such amazing information. There is also a lot of 💩 information out there that can lead us to believe we should be doing things that we really don’t enjoy or frankly give a flying f about.
This can lead us to constantly feel in-clear because we haven’t defined what WE want, what WE need and how we’re going to take action on it in our lives.
Uncovering all this is like diving head first in a dumpster full of everyone else’s trash and walking around town after expecting to be clean.
Take it from me, you should go take the shower and get clean and clear on yourself without everyone else’s stench clinging to you. 🗑 To wrap this bad boy up. I hope you take the time to relax, enjoy and discover what makes you, you.
You don’t have to know exactly what that looks like today because there’s 500 million and 35 steps but if you take one step today on getting to know you, you will be that much closer every day. And who knows maybe one day you’ll start jogging and be covering more ground.
Just be kind- know your worth- and take that time to reflect on how much you’ve grown and steer clear of bathing in the trash.
