There were wacky thoughts rolling around in her head making her think she wasn’t enough. So she gave herself a good talking to and
vowed to banish them one false thought at a time. – Queenisms™
On the Queen journey to claiming happiness, we often talk about banishing negative self talk. And, it would be terrific if that was a “once and done” kind of action. But, for us, it isn’t. We still have to catch ourselves whenever wacky thinking starts to invade our thoughts and we have to call it out and banish it all over again – on false thought at a time.
Thoughts like “what if I’m not good enough,” “I’m not young enough, rich enough, tall enough or whatever enough,” are poison. Queen Cindy recently took a zip line ride in Montreal, over the Old Port, screaming like a lunatic. She’s vowed never to do it again, but she’s glad she did it once. She’s also glad she didn’t give in to the feeling that she might be too old and she’s pleased as punch that she was able to help a 25 year old, ahead of her in line, muster the courage to strap in and push off on her own high wire adventure.
You don’t have to fling yourself off an 85 foot tower like Queen Cindy. You just have to tell yourself that you’re enough. Can you do that for us, please? Banishing negative self talk is not a once and done kind of action. It may have to be repeated often.
