Control Your Thoughts
A bad bitch is in control of her outlook. A bad bitch is in control of her mind, her thoughts, her awareness. She is in control of her mind
Bold statements, right? Well they are true. Life is hard and in life, there are trials. There are situations that are scary or intimidating. There are strong challenges that come into our lives and shake up our plans. There are times when we feel uncomfortable or feel powerless, or even feel less than or small. We can become so paralyzed with fear in these situations that we are unable to do anything but dwell on how incompetent we feel, or how uncomfortable we are, or how unhappy we are with the way things are going.
Remember that as bad bitches, we are in control of our outlook, our perspective, how we see the world. Our thoughts do not control us. We do not have to be paralyzed by fear. Our points of view can be changed. Our boundaries can be broadened. We can overcome adversity. Remember your worth. Remember the power you have. Remember it all starts in the mind and the way you choose to look at life.
Some stray far away from anything that seems remotely unpleasant and anything that has potential to take them out of their comfort zones. These are situations where a bad bitch will thrive; running toward the uncomfortable situations instead of running away from them. These are opportunities for growth, opportunities to learn, opportunities to test your limits, and opportunities for improvement.
I was recently with a group of new friends where I felt completely out of sorts. I felt like the quiet, introverted outcast watching on the side while they were singing and dancing boldly and seemingly having great fun. I felt like it was out of my character to act so daringly and then my thoughts started to take over. For a split second I thought – why are they even hanging out with me. I am clearly not like them. Why am I even with them. We don’t have anything in common.
I was spiraling, lost in thought, drowning in negative emotions, looking for a way out. Then I changed my thought process.
“No! Listen, I told myself, I can do whatever the hell I want to do. I am perfectly fine in this situation. I am only uncomfortable because I am stuck in my head and not actually being present to enjoy what’s happening in front of me. Let go. You’re doing great, you are great, and your thoughts are just thoughts. They are not always truth.”
Your thoughts are not always truth. Don’t always believe what your mind is saying. You have the power to change your perspective, your outlook, your negative chain of emotions. The saying “fake it till you make it” can be applied to a lot of situations. If you want to be confident, pretend you are confident. In situations that call for bold, strong self-assurance, act like you have it. Eventually will actually believe you are confident, therefore you will be confident. Got it?
Happiness is a choice. Vibrate higher and seek what you want. Look for the positive. Reach for the positive. You will eventually be the positive.
