Keep Making Mindful Choices

How you program your mind when you’re at a low point is so impactful. Resorting back to toxic patterns when you’re low is only strengthening those neural pathways and programming your mind to make those unhealthy choices or think those unhealthy thoughts every time you’re not feeling well. Alternatively, trying your hardest to cope in a healthier way every time you’re feeling bad will strengthen those positive neural pathways, and as time goes on, it will become easier to make healthy choices and say no to toxic patterns. This, of course, isn’t to say that you should feel guilty if you relapse; it is not by any means easy to reprogram your brain and sometimes we relapse and that’s okay, so long as we’re trying our best to treat ourselves better.

Move in the direction of your goal with all the force and verve you can muster—and then let go, releasing your plan to the Power that’s bigger than yourself and allowing your dream to unfold as it’s own masterpiece. Dream big—very big. Work hard—very hard. And after you’ve done all you can, fully surrender to the Power.
