She took a deep breath, thanked herself for all she did to survive, let go of the anger that was holding her back and imagined herself opening the door to happiness. Busy day. – Queenisms™
Thank yourself. What a simple thing to do and yet we rarely do it. If you are reading this now, we know you are a survivor, a seeker, a reader and someone who longs to surround themselves with more positive people and messages. That anger we attach to people, places, things, actions, intentions and memories can truly be a stumbling block on our quest for happiness. Our anger does not repair the hurt. Our anger does not punish the injuring party. Our anger harms us and we need actively seek ways to let it pass through us and out the open door. We need to make room for happiness.
Thanking yourself can seem hokey at first. We find that looking at ourselves in the mirror and saying the words “thank you,” out loud works for us. When we first started doing this it felt a bit foolish but we practiced. Eventually the ritual of thanking ourselves became a natural thing to do. If you can’t or don’t want to thank yourself out loud, why not try writing yourself a note or several notes. Put a post it note on your bathroom mirror. Jot a lovely note to yourself and keep it near your computer. Start a journal and say kind things to yourself. Set an alarm on your phone and when it rings, stop for five minutes and silently thank yourself.
So take a deep breath right now and thank yourself. You’re sweeping your own mental closets of anger, and opening up space for happiness, and we think that makes you simply awesome.
