Every Thought in Your Head is Not Your Own.

So today I posted a couple of videos on Instagram and Facebook about something that has been in my heart for a couple of days… and in doing so it got me thinking that maybe I’ll try my hand at posting a short video every Wednesday entitled, “Wellness Wednesdays”.

Anyway, my first video today is about our thoughts and how a lot of them are really not of our own making… not initially anyway… especially the negative thoughts we tend to replay over and over again in our heads that can become detrimental to our wellbeing if we allow them to take root.

If we are not careful we start to believe in all the negative things that we’ve heard about ourselves throughout our lives and those negative thoughts can very quickly become the your story we believe we are.

Hopefully in this day and age we all know that telling a child they are bad or evil when they act out or telling them they are stupid or useless when they make a mistake are terrible things to say to them. Β Doing this causes a child to grow up with confusing images of themselves and low or no self esteem.

But we still do these things as adults to other adults. Β We judge each other sometimes verbally and at times can be very cruel in our criticism for simply having an opposing point of view on a subject… and sometimes for even something as petty as a movie we might like, fashion sense or choice of hairstyle.

Well… Here’s the two part video. So… what are your thoughts? πŸ˜‰

Hello, Hmm... What to say? I always hate filling in these "About Me" sections of the profile. I never quite know what to say. Or I'll start writing only to find I've gone over the character allotment and half the things I've typed are not there. Ok, I just looked... I don't see a character limit so here goes... My name is Carol, although sometimes I refer to my middle name (Andrea) which is the name that my family calls me and people whom I grew up with from a wee tyke. Anyway, I just quit my retail job. Did I mention it was in retail? Right... I was there for seven years until I finally decided I had, had enough... that my sanity, and my emotional and physical well being were far more important to me than a biweekly paycheck. Don't get me wrong... I am thankful to have had the opportunity to have had a job. It was exactly what I needed and where I needed to be at that point in my life. but right, this is exactly what I need and where I want to be at this point in my life. Being "jobless" can be a scary thing at times. But not having to punch a clock everyday allows me the opportunity to do what I love... Cultivating what makes me happy... Creating quiet beautiful spaces in my home... Learning about different ways of being and and reconnecting with Self. I am in the latter half of my fifth decade and finding it to be one of amazingly beautiful growth. I embrace my true voice and my own sense of style while finding different ways of cultivating my personal well being and sharing what I learned works best for me. I hope you stop by from time to time to say hello and join me on my journey. Be Well!
