Did you know this about me...⠀

I am impatient as fuck. ⠀

When I decide that I want to do, be or have a thing, and it doesn't just 'happen' for me in the time I decide that it must happen, I have a tendency (some of the time) to get anxious and beat myself up with negative self-talk, shitty belief systems and stories of:⠀

Not being good enough ⠀
Not being deserving enough ⠀
Not being worthy enough⠀

That my expectations are too high.⠀
That what I want is simply unrealistic.⠀
That what I want just isn't for me.⠀
That only other people get to be/do/have that 'thing'.⠀

And that surely I've done something, said something, judged something/someone (which is most times bullshit) to cause that 'thing' to not yet be present in my life.⠀

Because that's what I do.⠀
That's what I always do.⠀

I fuck shit up and make it so that I cannot do/be/have what I want. That's what I've always done.⠀

But, then:⠀

I hear myself saying "What. The. Actual. Fuck!!"⠀


At that point:⠀

I know I have become aware of my thoughts. ⠀
I know I have become aware of what I'm saying to myself. ⠀
I know I have become aware of the bullshit I'm putting out into the Universe.⠀


I know I have become aware of the impact that all of that shit is/gonna have on me creating and manifesting what I desire moving forward.⠀

So, I pause for a moment and I in check with myself. And I begin replacing the self-hate, self-deprecation and the bullshit with self-love.⠀

Reminding myself that all. of. that. stuff. is just bullshit, that it's all lies, that it's all egoic shit, that it's stupid shit that's been lumped on my (said to me) by someone at sometime and like that someone, that none of it matters.⠀


I remind myself that the reason I am impatient is because of two things and that only one of those things matters...⠀

You probably know Mary Anne Evans more famously as the writer George Eliot, author of Middlemarch and Daniel Deronda. Eliot used a male pen name so that her work would be “taken more seriously” and also not associated with her work as an editor and critic. Eliot is also known for her controversial love life: she lived with many men to whom she wasn’t married, and later in life married a man twenty years younger than her. She might also adopted her pseudonym to disentangle her life from her work. ✍🏻
Middlemarch is considered one of the greatest novels in the English language (though alas I must say I haven’t read it!). And she has some wise words for me / is tonight: “Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.” #the100dayproject #100daysofwomen#georgeeliot #middlemarch .

WORD. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How many times have you witnessed someone saying: “they shouldn’t be so upset about that!”...”they need to just get over it.” ... “they need to stop doing that, it’s ridiculous.” .
These statements come from a lack of knowledge that at the end of the day, you cannot control others. You cannot control how they feel, how they act, what decisions they make... what you can control is how you let it affect you 😉

Let’s stay happy and positive everyday! 😊✨

Do you find yourself resisting compliments because you have a hard time believing them to be true? What is the toughest compliment for you to receive? 🤷🏻‍♀️ It’s still hard for me to accept compliments about my body. Having three children has changed how I look (especially my abdomen). I’m not going to lie: I want a tummy tuck!I may not love that part of me but I have learned to move away from loathing it. I am thankful that I had two healthy pregnancies. My body was strong enough to house twins and then bring another baby into this world 12 years later. Focusing on what my body does instead of just how it looks allows me to feel gratitude for it’s beautiful purpose!🤰🏻🤱🏻

The actual performance of turning desire into money involves the use of auto-suggestion. It is auto-suggestion that reaches and influences the subconscious mind.
