I have always heard that we can do anything we set our minds to. Here is the challenge though, setting our minds to changing the ways that our minds have been set. Ha kinda trippy to thing about and a challenge for many including myself. Once our minds have been set to judge ourselves harshly which comes with years of accidental practice, changing the way that we think becomes a frusterating cycle.
Learning to see our patterns of thinking can come fairly easily but filtering those thoughts and not being hard on ourselves becomes the real challenge. It then seems to become a viscious cycle of being hard on ourselves for being hard on ourselves ironically. Unconditional love and acceptance of self becomes vital at this point. We will fail at times and thats ok, a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Try to enjoy the ride as we move toward a new way thinking which will change the realities in which we live.
