Have you ever said to a friend “Hey, do you remember so-and-so? I wonder whatever happened to them?!” and then saw them a few days later? Kind of as though you thought them into existence?
Or what about when you spend a lot of time wishing for something not to happen… and then it happens exactly the way you imagined it would.
These type of things happen to me… extremely frequently. It’s actually rather annoying, and after making note of this a few months ago, I figured I’d try and make it work to my advantage.
Seeing that I always assume the absolute worse in most situations, trying to apply this logic to work in my favor has been beyond hard. But the funny thing is, it sometimes helps me catch my negative thinking before it turns into a whirlwind within my mind, attacking all positive things going for me or my hope for specific situations in the future. Maybe this is my way of “observing the thinker” Eckhart Tolle speaks about within “The Power of Now”.
So you know how Yetti works, I need to have a plan, but not my usual structured-force-myself-out-of-my-comfort-zone plan. I’m going to go with what works for me and honestly… honestly hope for the best. Below you’ll see my “Affirmations Board”. It’s sort of like a Vision Board, but instead of pictures, the board is comprised of post-its of positive thoughts (both mine and friends), reminders of why I’m so phenomenal, and my goals and aspirations. I don’t plan on reciting every post-it in the morning but it’ll serve as a reminder of the things I really want for myself, kind of like the gorgeous post-it I placed on all of my mirrors in 2012. That one little post-it definitely played a role in me learning to love what I see in the mirror.
