Everything starts with a thought…
Striving towards new desires such as new dreams, goals, lifestyles, the beautiful journey of self discovery, or maybe a shifting career paths, etc. is so exciting!!! We get pumped up, hopeful, (as we should) adrenaline starts to flow which leads to creative ideas and inspirations…Then somewhere down the line the excitement fizzles…Why is that? What causes us to get worked up about something we truly desire–only to have it sit on the back burner marinating?
One of the culprits it’s our mindset. Our core, limiting beliefs. Toxic, doubts, fears or worries. Fear of failure, fear of success (yes, that’s a thing) or maybe procrastination sets in…All these things can keep us lacking what we ultimately desire in life.
The big shift that moves causes us to want more, to want something different, better or simply more in alignment with WHO we truly are may come through experiences that forces us to grow and develop. It may come through an unfulfilling or unpleasant experience in which we discover what we truly desire, shifting us in a whole new direction in life. This is a good thing. We are meant to evolve–to better ourselves so that we can help others and live our true purpose.
I believe we shouldn’t and don’t have to live a box. We can reinvent ourselves at any time. Just because you’ve been known as a (fill in the blank) all your life, that doesn’t mean you have to stay in that role or mindset! Let’s chat!
Truth be told, “Life is a precious gift!” Life is something to be cherished and your mindset, the vibe that you give off, focus, intentions, and belief play a MAJOR role in it. You have a purpose, you are unique to your personality, your skills, talents, and abilities. There is only one of you and you are wonderfully and carefully made. -Psalm 139:14 There’s only one of you and you are valuable. What you do and say affects others. You are need and bettering yourself is a reward within itself! This is YOUR time! This is YOUR moment! I would like to ask you as one child of God to the next…
- Are you happy?
- Are you fulfilled?
- What purpose your soul calling you towards?
- What are your deepest desires, hopes and dreams?
- What have you always wanted to experience?
- What do you want to overcome, conquer, accomplish?
- Where do you want to Visit or travel to?
- What are some of your limiting beliefs?
- Are you feeding your spirit?
- How is your thought life?
- Is your mind constantly wondering?
- Are your thoughts more positive or negative?
These are somethings to ponder on. Our mind is constantly on the go. It’s up to us to assess our thought life and gain control. If you’re a believer in the word, boldly submit your negative thoughts to the word of God. To add to that, you may want to get a scripture or affirmation that pertains to your current situation and keep it with you (mentally or written down) throughout your day. It’s also a good thing to have or create a morning ritual or routine. Setting your intentions, being grateful (stating it out loud or writing it down vs. thinking it helps a lot! Keeping a gratitude, journal, or journaling in general is therapeutic. Morning inspiration in any form (music, motivational podcast, video, Ted Talks) are all beneficial and getting out in Nature is good for grounding our minds and energy. Lastly, as I mentioned before Taking that “me time” is “oh” such a good one.
Best wishes to you in your journey of personal development, growth, transformation and career change. I hope you’ve found this info useful. I’m leaving you with links to affirmations and a few scriptures concerning mindset. Peace (of mind), love and light to you! God Bless.

Scriptures concerning mindset and our Thought life…
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
2 Timothy 1:7
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he
No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
