Battling Self-Doubt, Negative Thoughts & Impostor Syndrome

This post is full of empowerment, light, self-love and growing stronger by appreciating the good in yourself.

It is not always easy to stay positive.

Self-doubt can take root on your hopes and overpower everything benefical you want to accomplish, but just like the author, Jessica Corbin states “For each negative thought you may have about yourself, find one true positive statement to counter it.”

To learn more about battling self-doubt, this is a must read!

It is true that our biggest critic is often ourselves. We are constantly bombarded with influences telling us, how we should act, speak and where we should be in life by now. Truth is, there is not a set standard for how we should live our lives and where we should be in life by a certain date. We are all living our own purposes, on our own journeys. The trouble with negative thinking is that we hold our lives up against that of others and the media. These influence cause us to view ourselves as less than. Instead of seeking to build ourselves up, all we can see are flaws. There are enough negative sources around us, influencing us such as the media, and people in our lives. Instead of allowing yourself to default to the negative, make a conscious effort to think more positively.

Check your perspective. See…

5 Reasons Women Lose Themselves in Relationships 

In most of my past relationships, I have been the one building and sustaining the love, trust, and intimacy. I would give my time, energy, money, and my heart in my relationships because I value making my-love, feel loved and appreciated.

Women are so strong in the midst of our own weakness….

I reblogged this post because of the truth within it. Anytime I reblog a post, I normally have a long message that I deliver with it, but this post speaks for itself.

TO EVERY WOMAN AND GIRL, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, TALENTED, INTELLIGENT, VALUED, AND LOVED.

Some Bad Plankton

I’ve spent longer watching myself smile in the mirror than I’ve spent laughing with friends.

Has your mother accused you of scratching yourself because of the stretch marks on your breasts?

To the women who wipe it away with alcohol. I understand. I’m here if you need me.

Don’t qualify your statements when you speak. You’ve a right to be heard. Have something worth saying. I want to hear it.

To the women I’ve let down. I’m sorry. Tell me please, so I can get better.

Who fall in love with the cashier at Dunkin’ Donuts because he has a sexy voice and he kept my extra penny.

I’ve never seen a healthy relationship. What would I expect from my own?

Who have tried to turn over one-sided mattresses by themselves.

Who have hair on their bellies longer than the hair on their legs.

Who have used the same pair…

Positive Vibes Only

I love thrift shopping. It is nostalgic and one of my favorite past-times. I even love the smell (is that weird?). Its not just about the bargain for me, its about recycling and cutting down on unnecessary waste. My favorite is Red White Blue thrift because everything is organized by color.

In the section filled with an array of random paintings, posters, and picture frames, I came across a vinyl painting with motivational sayings that uplifted me as soon as I read the first line.

Lyrics for Life 

To every mother and parent that is dealing with a child that is struggling with anger or depression, the late Mr. Rodgers has captured our hearts by showing love and support to every child. I had to share this quote and song from a man who dedicated his life to uplifting all youth and children in hopes of helping a parent through the struggles of raising a child.

There is always a root and a reaction to our anger!
