There’s a big difference between wanting to believe something and actually believing it. There are a lot of things I’d really love to believe about myself, about others and about the world but deep down I’m not quite there yet. I have work to do to nurture those beliefs until they are my default ones. And that’s okay. There’s also work to do to release old beliefs and I’m okay with that too. I’m also okay with where I’m at in this moment.
I am okay. And from that place, magic happens.
What I can do is choose to believe on purpose. I can choose to focus on the beliefs that are best for me. I can act as if I already believe them. I can talk, plan and work as if I already have reached those goals. I can accommodate my life to make space for my desired beliefs.
Here are some things I’m choosing to believe on purpose.
– I’m okay. You’re okay.
– I’m enough. In all things and in all ways…I’m already enough.
– Everyone is trying their best with what they have.
– I am worthy of boundaries.
– There’s enough for everyone and we are all deserving of our bit.
– I’m allowed to have abundance in my life and that doesn’t take anything away from anyone else.
– I’m allowed to try, learn, grow, make mistakes and evolve. In fact, it’s necessary.
– There’s magic everywhere and in everyone.
– I’m a creator.
I mean, no biggie. Just a few wee beliefs to own as my own. Nothing too major there. Sigh.
But…that’s who I want to be and what I want to believe. It’s the way I want to spend whatever time I’m gifted here. It’s the way I get to thrive and it’s the way others get to thrive with and around me.
We all get to choose how we want to be and what we want to believe. We really do. I’m not saying it’s easy but the option is out there. We need to nurture and focus on the good-good ones we want.
The plant your water grows…right?
I’m watering the shit out of those beliefs above. And I’m going to do my best to act as if I already believe them. Some are further along than others. I’ll get there.
Can I make a wee suggestion? Give your self the permission to explore this. You have the right to choose. You really do. Many of your beliefs were gifted to you from outside sources. And some of them might be a bit shit. You don’t have to accept them as truths.
What do you want to believe? Which beliefs are you going to water and nurture? What do you want to be, do and have in this life? Make your wish list. Pick one and ‘act as if…’.
We’ve got this.
