Pause. Ponder. Pivot.
Do you ever get stuck in a viscous cycle of negative thought (and secretly want to stay there bc admittedly it feels good to have a pity party for yourself and it often seems easier than changing your thought pattern)? I do. 🙋♀️ But try this - just take a moment to pause and feel what thoughts are swirling in your head. Are they negative, neutral, positive?
Just be aware of them. Don’t judge them or yourself.
How does it make you feel if that thought is negative? Does it make you feel justified? Does it make you feel worthy? Does it make you feel understood?
Try this - change the negative (or neutral) thought around. It’s hard I know, to let go of the reigns of frustration, anger, doubt. But just take a moment to PIVOT.
Say you’re constantly thinking “Damn I’m broke.We can’t afford to go on that trip. I know it would be a blast, but we just don’t have the funds.” Instead try this: “That trip sounds amazing. I know if I went I’d have the time of my life. I know it’s pricey, but what can I do to make it happen? I know I have the power to make it a possibility”
Seriously try it, as corny as it sounds, it works! Try it with how you might be reacting to this post right now. Are you thinking, “what the hell is Kara talking about, what magic pill did she swallow?” I get it! But maybe try “Wow, she has been diving into self growth and I admire what she’s learning. Even if it’s not for me, I love to see her thrive.” Yay thanks! 😜
But really, how do you feel from one reaction to the next? What reaction ELEVATES your frequency into being the truest version of yourself?
This is something I practice allll day long. It takes constant awareness of recognizing what thoughts are circling in my head. I practice with my : “They are freaking driving me crazy and I can’t deal with it, I have NO time for myself!” Pause.
Pivot. “My have so much energy & are nutswhat’s stopping me from joining them? Let’s go jump on the bed! Ok that was fun. Now I need to express my need to have some time to myself and focus my attention elsewhere.” Pivoting perspective & taking active control of your thoughts WILL elevate your frequency💓
