When insecurity or self-doubt surfaces, it can be really hard to move forward.
So, what do you do? How do you turn your thoughts around?
Here are three things that help me avoid throwing myself a pity party ;)
Repeat the mantra, “This too shall pass.” I trust that this feeling won’t last forever.
Get into my body. Move. Breathe. Notice pain and tension, and do what I need to do to move through it. Sometimes this is a sweaty gym workout; sometimes it’s an hour of stillness on my yoga mat. And often, it’s a few songs dancing in my underwear ;)
Gratitude. Even though things feel crappy in this moment, there’s still something to be grateful for. Blessings abound. Can you notice them?
Now go turn that frown upside down ;)
