Late last year I wrote “I no longer feel lost” in my art journal. I lied. I was not fine. In fact I was more lost than ever. I was enthusiastically creating for handmade markets on the surface but what lay beneath was a bit of a mess. I felt conflicted. I was overwhelmed. I faced dreams and fears all at once and tried my hardest to deny what my subconscious was uncovering. This year I asked for help and I meant it. It’s probably one of the hardest things I’ve had to do for myself. I know I’m not the only one who feels that way. It's as if asking for help is a confession that we aren’t capable of coping & dealing with our problems and issues. I’ve been working hard to combat negative self-talk and replace it with positive thoughts but it is hard work and not 100% foolproof. We all have good days and bad days, good minutes and bad minutes. I'd like to ask you, how do you confront your inner Ms Mean and tell her where to go? I’m still working that out. I’m trying to work out the best method for myself and so far that is: Cut the negative self-talk and Replace it with something good and true. Whatever my Ms Mean is telling me or trying to make me feel, I turn it around with the opposite. I tell her what the truth is. And in case you, lovely reader need reminding: You are worth the truth and you are enough.
What negative things have you told yourself? What would happen if you confronted them and replace them with truth?
