Learning to Manage my Mind

I’m in my seventh month of SCS and I’m realizing more and more the reason I joined in the first place was to learn how to manage my mind. It was a total mess! I lived with buffering and wrong thinking for so long! I’m slowly conquering the buffers but my mind is still a work in progress. I’m not where I want to be, which is totally free from the wrong thinking that has held me back, but, thank God I’m not where I used to be. I’m realizing we’re never totally free from negative thoughts (that whole 50/50 thing) but I’m so aware of those thoughts, which was a total drag at first, but I’m learning very s-l-o-w-l-y to acknowledge my thoughts as just that, THOUGHTS, not facts, and I can change them to things I want to believe. I’m really loving this month’s topic.
I want to quit my day job and write full time. I don’t know how to accomplish that just yet, but on one of your podcasts you said, “The answer to how is Yes.” That was just what I needed to hear in that moment. I write it everyday at the top of my daily thought download. I just need to keep reminding myself to not beat myself up or think I should be farther along than I am. I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be:)
Just wanted to thank you all…XO
