If you and I are similar, then you know what I mean when I say my biggest enemy isn’t anyone else— it’s the shit talking noise that goes on in my mind.
These past 5 years I’ve really worked hard through meditation, books, and talking to others to help tame those circulating doubtful and douchey thoughts, but I know that if I’m not consciously working to strengthen my mindset, it’ll get the best of me.
My friend, we’ve got to protect the space between our ears.
And that protection starts with awareness…becoming aware of what we’re watching, what we’re listening to, who we’re spending time with, what we’re consuming on a daily basis because THOSE are some of the biggest factors influence the thoughts that we focus the most.
I’m challenging you to take some time today to just be aware of how those factors make you feel. It’ll help to either write it down or talk to a friend so it’s just not a conversation between you vs. you.
Does the music/podcast you listen to make you feel good or bad? Does the TV show you watch make you feel good or bad? Do the friends you hang out with make you feel good or bad? ⠀⠀
Changing our mindset habits and taking control of what goes on between our ears starts with awareness. Start today.
Be at peace. Do not look forward in fear to the changes of life; rather look to them with full hope that as they arise, GOD whose very own you are, will lead you savely through all things; and when you cannot stand it, God will carry you in His arms.
Do not fear what will happen tomorrow; the same understanding Father who cares for you today will take care of you then and every day.
He will either shield you from suffering or will give you unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace, and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.
St. Francis de Sales
Sometimes God calls you to step out of your comfort zone and this might be scary! But be sure that he provides and leads you! That’s what I personally experienced!
Why is it that our mind is preoccupied with thoughts of doom & gloom when we so desperately just want to be happy? Where do these dark thoughts come from, what do they mean, & am I bad for thinking them?
How can we release the clutches of dark, heavy thinking? Is it possible?
Together we will shed some light on the thinking mind, how it works, and the cycles of unhelpful, repetitive thinking we all engage in.
We will have a conversation about practical ways to become more aware of the thinking mind, how to create some distance from it, instead of being stuck in it. We will reflect on how this practice, over time, can cultivate a more peaceful mind, where hopeful, loving thoughts can be allowed in.
Come and enjoy a meaningful evening together on Sunday, 1st July as we discuss DARK, ANXIOUS THINKING
AED200 for drop-in or join Mindful Living membership for discounts
1st July from 7pm - 9pm
The workshop will be held at a hosted venue in TECOM

#Anxiousthoughts . #Worry . #Stress . #Darkness .
These were my #internalbattles for years. I’d play things out in my head until I was nearly sick. I obsessed over the safety of my children. I tried to protect them from anything that could potentially cause them
worry, fear or stress. And I was a hot mess in the process. A crazy hot mess.
Y’all, this was a terrible way to live. I ended up isolating myself from family functions cuz I just didn’t care enough to bother. I’d let Keith take the kids to the park or lake alone, because I knew they’d have more fun without me. I didn’t even want to be around my hubby. I was too ornery and crabby to give a crap, honestly.
Who was that girl? How had she taken over my life? How was she even functioning when her tummy and pounding head gave her fits all day long? I sure don’t miss her now that she’s gone! And she’s not welcome back. Ever.
Thank you Jesus for tools to take my life back~ for tools to help me find the girl hidden in the agony. Thank you for a friend who cared enough to help me change my outlook and the way I was (or actually wasn’t) living. Where would I be without the tools to make things right again? Where would I be without the balance?
I’m so grateful to have found a way out. Grab my hand. There’s a path out of that place.
