We all have our own perception of truth, so I am not here to tell you what THE truth is. However, I will speak of my own personal truths and perhaps you may relate to them.
Yesterday I skipped my Monday blog, although I previously told myself I would blog Monday through Friday. Sunday was an action packed day with friends and playing a small role in a movie. As a result, things I normally would do on Sunday shifted to Monday. Instead of beating myself up ( like I normally would do) for falling behind, I am realizing it’s simply a part of life and to relax and let go. Life should be enjoyed and we can’t always cross off every item on our ” to- do” list.
Previously I had written about an insomnia issue and realized perhaps it was due to my self talk of saying I have trouble staying asleep. This morning I was awakened at 3: 30 am by Facebook messenger sending me an alert. It was a chain message! My first thought was “why is she up this early?” Then, I quickly shifted my thoughts to ” it’s an honor she included me, she thought of me when she knows so many other people, she may not know when Android phones are in silent mode, Messenger still sounds off.” Isn’t it a blessing when people include us? It makes us feel special.
Now, on the flip side if being awakened by a loving message, I fell back into the pattern of telling myself that now I will struggle with sleep. Since I told myself that, it happened! Our brains are a computer and we all have faulty programming. It is not an easy task to reprogram a computer, but it can be done.
Not all “truths” serve us well. My “truth” that I cannot sleep was instilled in part by others saying they can’t sleep and then my own part in agreeing with this. We are a collective consciousness. I always sleep well on vacations and when I do not think of sleep lack. My insomnia is a lie!
What other lies do we tell ourselves? I’ve told myself terrible things that hinder my personal development. Let’s tell ourselves truths that help!
