Have you ever felt that way? That you were not worthy of goodness, love, generosity, a good job, or happiness because of negative self-talk?
The kind of words such as:
*you are unworthy
*you are not good enough
*you are not pretty enough
The above are lies. These are the lies we tell ourselves and that others may tell us as well and they keep us from moving forward.
They keep us from loving ourselves and living our purpose. They keep us from being creative, looking for a better job, and living our dreams. It is so much easier to believe the negative crap at times but the fact is that they are still lies.
I encourage you to write down the lies you tell yourself; the things that keep you from moving forward. Then, write down on another bit of paper the truths (you are worthy, you are creative, you are smart, etc).
Tear that sheet of lies into small bits and destroy them. And let them go. Today.
And hold on to the sheet of truths.
In a class I taught this weekend, I burned the lies for the participants. Start up the barbeque pit and release the negativity while enjoying the day. As you enjoy the good food and the day you can ponder your blessings and the truths of your worth.
By the way, the man from above is Simon (Peter) and his event can be found in Luke 5:1-11.
