Everything you tell yourself is true.
You are what you say and think you are.
~be careful little mouth what you say~
You have to believe in yourself. If you’ve ever been in sports, your coach probably said those words, or told you that you have to believe it to achieve it, or something similar. Many times in life when we face obstacles, we talk ourselves through it, we help ourselves do something by believing we can! But if the talk in our minds is negative, its not going to help us at all. Its going to pull us down, because if you believe you are worthless, you’ll become worthless. If you believe you are overcoming, then you are an over-comer. As children, we are told many things, some good, some bad. Stop believing the bad things. Stop believing the cruel words of others. Only believe the good, and work toward being better. Try hard to be a better person today, than you were yesterday. Change only happens when you change what you are saying to yourself!
~be careful little ears what you hear~
But think about this, what if every song lyric you sang or listened to automatically transferred into your life as a true fact. Would you keep listening to the same music? The songs you sing in your head; are they going to lift you up? Or bring you down? Do you listen to sad songs? Or songs about violence and rage? Those words are who you become. Do the lyrics of your favorite song talk about how pathetic you are? How screwed up you are? Its only going to reinforce these thoughts and keep you stuck in the downward spiral.
It kills me when people who suffer from depression listen to death metal. Don’t you want to feel better? Listen to happy music, children’s songs, church hymns, anything that’s upbeat. Don’t reinforce your depression by listening to someone drone on about how miserable they are, or how terrible their life is. Every genre has this music; Country, Rap, Metal, and Rock. There are even Classical pieces that resonate doom and despair-don’t listen to them! Pick something that makes you feel good inside. Find some music that makes you feel happy. And no, don’t try to tell me you only feel happy when you listen to depressing or angry music, I don’t buy it, please don’t insult my intelligence. Find some relaxing music; Native American flutes, Buddhist singing bowls, or ocean waves, or something from nature; anything that clears your mind and helps you think in a positive manner.
~be careful little eyes what you see~
Did you know that when you watch a movie, your subconscious brain believes its really happening to you? There are people who have been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after watching violence happenings on television. Some people are more sensitive than others and watching horror movies, or violence, can cause serious repercussions, especially in children. So think about how much stress you are inflicting on your subconscious just by what you watch on the screen! (I’m going to start watching exercise videos!)
~be careful little hands what you do~
Having nothing to do is an invitation to boredom, and that can cause you to feel worthless. Find a hobby. Find something for you to do in your spare time. You’d be better off finding a part time job to make a few extra bucks than just sitting around moping. It good to have things to do, find some!
Finding peace is possible, if you want to find it. You have to believe you can, and you need to feel that you are worthy. Only you can make your life better, and the best way to start is by realizing that everything you tell yourself is true. The words you say, the music you listen to, the things you give your attention to, are the things that make up your life. If you want your life to change, you have to change it! You have to pick a different choice than you have in the past.
“Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right.”
“If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.”
“There is no man living who isn’t capable of doing more than he thinks he can do.”
Henry Ford is credited for the quotes above, and he’s right.
YOU CAN DO THIS!!!
