Here’s a thought i heard today you might like: “I’m learning to trust the good in my life”.
You know when you go to check on your kids when they are sleeping and they look so amazing and beautiful that it becomes too much for you to handle, you get scared that something will happen to them?
Your feeling of love turns into fear and loosing this fortune.
I call this being uncomfortable with feeling good. Really.
We are intolerant to feeling good.
We can’t take too much of it, at some point we get very uncomfortable with feeling THAT good.
To avoid that discomfort we have thoughts like ‘it’s irresponsible to not worry, i don’t want to brag, this is white people problems; adding complaining at the end to make us seem more normal’.
Those are the ways we bring ourselves back where it’s more comfortable: some good and some problems.
I’m definitely a believer that we can grow our capacity to have and feel good in our life.
Practice feeling good without guilt, excuses, fear or shame. (and i do that with that sentence : “i’m learning ot trust the good in my life” and i lean in and feel the love without being afraid. just adding a second here and there)
It’s not a mystery, it’s intentional brain management.
My job is just like the job of a fridge technician. He comes in and adjusts the way the fridge works SO that the food doesn’t rot. We need the food to stay cold so that we can be healthy and have a great life.
I come in and adjust the way your brain works SO that your THOUGHTS (food) don’t get rotten and make you sick. IF we let the fridge do it’s thing without setting the thermostat and maintaining it, keeping the door closed our food will get rotten and we will get sick.
The exact same thing happens with our brain. If we keep the door open and LET every opinion into brain well we will feel sick- sad, unsure, ashamed.
If we don’t set the temperature- which is what thoughts are acceptable to achieve the life we want – if we don’t set that then again we will get sick.
Food fuels our body. Thoughts fuel our mind, which creates our life. Keep your food cold and manage your thoughts. – your friendly neighbourhood life coach:)
