They say that you have something like 48 thoughts per minute. This means we have approximately seventy thousand thoughts per day.Amazingly 95 % are the same thoughts over and over and 80 % of those are negative. It’s the reason why you’re still thinking about Wendy’s giving you one sweet and sour sauce for my fifteen nuggets an hour later. If I’m in my head this much I want my thoughts to be self-serving rather than mood killers. One thing you should know about me is that I talk to myself … A lot!Mantras have been my saving grace. It’s been a life-changing experience.
Then I got to thinking as much as it has helped me maybe it can be of service to you.I have many depending on the day and the mood but these are three that no woman should live her life without. I am not saying you should say mine to exact detail. I want you to create something that works for you. A mantra can be a quote from your favorite poem or your favorite scripture.Repeat it throughout the day when necessary or when your thoughts just seem to get away from.
The Baddie Mantra – Because I have to remind myself every now and again that stretch pants for the third day or not. I am a bad one both physically and mentally. My body is not for aesthetics only.
I am more than aesthetics I and beautiful and treasured. There is not one other person on the earth quite like me.
The Chin Up Mantra– Used in my most trying times of need. Being a mommy of 2 can be tough especially with a girl entering adolescence.(You want her) Sometimes I just want to be a complete spazz and freak the hell out. So in this moment, I take a breath and slowly repeat.
I have the strength that was given to me by God himself. He is in me and I am strong beyond my own abilities.
Purposeful living Mantra – Sometimes the days go by with me putting in little effort. I make decisions based on immediate needs with little thought to the long-term. I’m merely existing as an observant of the life that is happening to me. I snap myself out of it with this mantra to bring me back to the present moment; to become an active participant again.
I am still learning, I’m still growing. I am present in this very moment.
When you say your mantra you should feel something. It should ignite emotions in you and bring you back to the present moment.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things. -Philippians 4:8
