Hello, Think Right-er 😁
The idea of waiting until the perfect time, starting over and over again because it wasn’t right the first time or doing nothing because your something may not be good enough keeps us at a standstill. Perfectionism is another form of procrastination.
I help my clients deal with their inner critic that pushes putting your goals off because they won’t work out right now or at all.
Our inner critic uses language that counteracts progress whether through perfectionism or notions of powerlessness.
Frustrate that voice by moving forward, initiating one step of an idea/goal today.
Declare this affirmation: I am confident in my ability to achieve my goals and my time is now.
Loving your life should be on your to-do list. What do you need to do to embrace that your life is a beautiful gift that you have the privilege of unwrapping each day? Here a few suggestions that will help you in this process:
The first thing to do is to be grateful. Take a deep breath and absorb everything that comes with this ability. How does it feel to inhale and exhale existence?
Secondly, look in the mirror and thank God for every experience you have had that has created the beautiful reflection staring back at you.
Lastly, choose joy. Joy is a choice. Decide to laugh, maybe even skip! Stop the sad saunter and look up! That is where you are headed, and loving your life will uplift you to your next level of appreciation for yourself. Every challenge will pull out your inner strength, each disappointment will drive you to expose your bouncebackability, and if there are betrayals, you will know how to be a better friend. Every problem is an opportunity to validate your victory mindset.
You are a unique expression chosen to encounter God’s goodness every day of your life.

No doubt that you have heard this instruction before at some point in your life. Maybe it was a directive given because you needed to evaluate your response before moving in haste, or you needed to level up in your courage. When the doctor listens to your heart, this is usually the preceding instruction. Deep breathing is a physical way to open your lungs and release the stress that could take root in your heart. Inhale and release! Shallow breathing is usually our baseline breathing. We have to remember to use the total capacity of our lungs by taking deep breaths.
Deep breaths awaken you to life, internally and externally. Take in the air around you and remember the importance of fresh air. Mindfulness is taking a moment to recognize you are alive! Be intentional with this practice and welcome peace into your heart while being aware of the pace you are maintaining in your daily life. Have you taken a deep breath lately? Take this challenge to fill up your lungs and release your breath into the atmosphere in a conscionable way.
Take a Deep Breath!
Mindfulness is the practice of keeping your mind at peace and focused. It is the ability to discipline your thoughts and prevent them from running wild. Have you ever let your mind wander and realized that time eluded you and your purpose at the moment was forgotten? Did you worry yourself sick over recurring and constant thoughts about what if?
The what-ifs of life can take us into a downward spiral and quickly lead us into disparaging thoughts if we are not mindful.
Today, I want to encourage you to keep your mind full of God. This means that your thoughts will be filled with peace and joy. Your mind will be at rest, and your heart will be happy! When stressful thoughts try and press your mind and turn your focus to chaotic rhythms of doubt, redirect your attention to a loving God who already has that worry answered and under control.
Keep your mind full of Him!
