In Our Mind
On average day it’s said that a brain processes 70,000 thoughts. For some that ranges from thoughts about food, money, errands, and everything in between. Though our thoughts can be about a variety of things, we have to consider what we think ourselves.
Last week I found that it’s easy to have negative thoughts about myself when things are looking bad. With this being my second week without a job and one week away from moving a lot of thoughts have run through my head. These thoughts have made me feel as though I will never make it and that without a job I’m nothing, which at some points I believed.
I’m use to working and being independent so being in a place where that’s no longer the case can make a person feel useless. Thoughts of insecurity, self-esteem, pressure, and stress all start out infrequently then as one focuses on them they become more frequent and more believable. Before we know it we start to doubt ourselves and feel that we will never get past the situation we are in.
Everyday we face a battle that’s going on in our mind concerning what thoughts we except. While its not easy to be positive all the time we have to be aware that our thoughts and feelings determine our day. We have to choose to think positive about ourselves and speak that into ourselves.
