Marie Kondo Your Mind

This is my gentle reminder to you.
Get to know the stories you tell yourself.

Revamp your “thought wardrobe”.

Your mind is like a closet full of clothes that you have collected over the years.

 

Upgrade any story you have collected that you no longer want to hold on to.

Let’s examine the stories you have in your “thought closet”.

Take a look. Don’t judge yourself.
Just become aware.
Notice.

Consider that the stories you’ve collected about yourself might not be true.

 

You think they are true.
They may not be.

Next, choose.
Keep that story?
Or discard that thought?

Pull out a thought and decide whether you want to continue to “wear” that thought. 

 

That story that you are not a good friend.
Or the thought that you will never find a life partner.

The test – Is that thought helpful?

 

Examples of thoughts that are not helpful:

“I’m not good at (fill in the blank – math, talking to people, going places by myself, exercising).”
“I need to wait until I find my soul mate before I can (fill in the blank).”
“My spouse/my employee/my sibling/my child is (this, that or the other thing).”
“My (name a body part) is too (fat or skinny).”

Make room for new thoughts.

 

Let go of the old.
Start dreaming up some new “thought outfits”.

Examples of new thoughts to try on:

“I am enough”.
“I can learn anything I put my mind to”.
“My body is sexy just as it is”.
“I am ready. The time is now”.
“I am worthy and lovable just as I am. And so are you (and you and you)”.

Try on the thoughts you want to think.

 

Strut down the runway wearing that new thought.
Be seen for who you believe you are.

Because you WILL be seen for who you believe you are.

 

Believe something good.
Wear the thoughts that serve you well.
