Reframing - Why is this happening for me and not to me?
Did you ever get stuck in one of those cycles where nothing is working out? You think things can’t get worse and then they do, and again, over and over?
We’ve all been there, right?
So what do you do to get out of this horrific cycle? How do you respond and not react to it?
One of the most powerful shifts I’ve made in my life was when I learned to ask myself a question whenever I was in this situation.
It’s so simple but it’s hard to bounce out of the old mindset into the new.
Old mindset: OMG Why is this happening to me?
New Mindset: Okay, deep breath, why is this happening for me? <<Powerful Question, Right Here<<
You see when we are in a rut or we believe things aren’t working out for us it's almost always because we are out of alignment with ourselves and what we really want to do in our lives.
This doesn’t mean that we should all be on the beach 24/7 not working and relaxing all day, although yes please, that sounds good to me. It's not all or nothing.
It usually just means some things in your life are off and maybe you need to tune in, take a moment and look at how you spend your time.
Are you doing ANYTHING you want to be doing? Are you taking some time for yourself? Are you having any fun?
We all need to feed and soothe our souls daily in some way shape or form. We need this just to continue on in our lives with some enthusiasm, joy, and peace.
What's life for otherwise? Good question right?
So the next time you feel like nothing is going right in your life, ask yourself those powerful questions and then you have to make the shifts.
To change your experience you have to change your behavior. Sometimes this can be hard.
You might ask yourself, sure but how do I do this?
Well, if you’re at a loss as to how to get started just do some small shifts like these:
These may seem silly or too simple to change anything but what it does is start the shift. It bounces you out of that rut.
Another thing you can do is make a list of 10 things you can do daily that will be a small sift from the normal day-to-day. Do this daily!!
These are just some quick easy steps to help you snap yourself out of that bad pattern you're in.
Apply these weekly self-care power moves to help you thrive in your daily life.
Remember if you want the changes, you have to do the work.
P.S. I’m super excited to share with you that I have a new group program coming soon that will dish out all the tools and shifts you need to start implementing in your life to get unstuck and start living in your purpose, thriving, and enjoying your life again. Stay tuned for the details at the end of the week or possibly next week!
