I never really understood what it meant to have a ‘healthy mind’. It wasn’t until I read Jen Sincero’s book called ‘How to be a bad ass’ that I realised how many negative thoughts I had floating around in my head. Think of your mind as a mini you. I always imagined my mini me to be like the Lizzie McGuire cartoon (who looked like me of course) and boy is she a bi**h. Not only did she make me second guess every decision I’ve have made, but she is also a procrastinator.
Some of you might be thinking ‘what is this girl talking about’ but take some time out today to really think about your thoughts. How many thoughts are positive? Are you constantly worrying or thinking about the future. Do you want to do something but the little voice inside your head makes you think otherwise? That is your mini me and she/he is working against you.
It’s taken me a while to shake her off and don’t get me wrong, I still have some unhelpful thoughts but I have managed to change my mindset for the better. We only have one life and we need to make the most of it. Always remember that anything is possible! 30 years ago the internet didn’t even exist, yet here I am sitting in a cool cafe blogging about personal development and well being.
By having a good, positive mindset you will be able to overcome anything that life throws at you. So next time your mini me decides to show up give them a little flick and carry on with the rest of your day. Be as positive as possible and focus on what makes you happy.
