I’m Not Listening

The voice in my head has been taking up a lot of air play of late, and she’s not very encouraging. I have to make a choice:

1) Do I stop listening, or

2) Do I give her new words to say?

There is no way that we can shut out our little voice, so my only choice is to give her new words to say back to me. A new focus. A new plan. A new picture.

Any ideas on how I can re-focus? How do you practically pull yourself away from negative thinking or replaying your mishaps?

    Get into the thought pattern of “what did i learn from my past mistakes or negative experience”, as opposed to, “yeah remember how i messed up? uh huh.. yeah..I messed up hard”
    Always be a learner..
    It isn’t easy to pull away though because as humans, we naturally sabotage ourselves… it’s going to have to be a paradigm shift… a complete turn around (hahaha i’m not making it easy neh).
    Take it one thought at a time..when it comes, break it down, analyse it, and tell yourself (out loud) the truth, if the thought is a lie.. if the thought is the truth, tell yourself out loud how u are going to change that truth into the truth you want it to be..
    (my two cents) ❤

    Funny how as I get older I have to learn to be a learner – which I always thought I was but actually wasn’t. Self-sabotage has been my specialty for ages, so as you say, I have to be a conscious learner – one thought at a time. Thanks Angela. 🙂
