Unedited Stream of Consciousness

April 12, 2012

Today is Stream of Consciousness Day. Challenge: start with this phrase, “Today I looked in the mirror and…” – just write, don’t stop, don’t edit. Post!

As following the Health Activist Writers Month Challenge, today I am suppose to write about what’s going on in my head at this exact moment. Without editing, without stopping to re-read and re-word. Without censoring…?

Ok, you asked for it.

Today I looked in the mirror and…

Told myself that today was going to be a great day. “Only good lies before me,” to be exact. I’m trying to follow the ways of Louise Hay, with all of her daily affirmations for leading a healthy, happy life.

It’s working.

I swear!

I’m feeling amazing lately. Ever since I started my gratitude journal, daily affirmations, and telling myself, I love you, things have been going my way and I have been happy for no reason at all. It is quite an odd feeling of being happy- ALL OF THE TIME.

I’m definitely not complaining but it does take some getting used to. When you stop and think about it, most of us probably- way deep down in your consciousness- don’t believe that we deserve to be genuinely happy. As I do this work on myself I have actually noticed that I used to believe that I didn’t deserve to get a great job, to wake up and live life happy, to be at my ideal weight and to be happy and LOVE my body. To love me.

It’s full acceptance of self. Acceptance of being happy. Acceptance of knowing that I DO deserve all of it. Everything I want. I deserve it and I will do anything I need to make sure I keep believing this.

And guess what…?

YOU deserve it, too.

You deserve to be happy. To be loving towards yourself. To be accepting of your body, mind, and who you genuinely are.

You are creative, loving, caring, motivated, healthy, excited, intelligent. You are wonderfully you.

Be happy. Love happily. Talk happily. THINK happily. Be happy.

🙂

I love you. And I love me.

Oh my gosh–your post is such a breath of fresh air. I’m afraid my stream of consciousness was some heavy confessional. You are so right about the not-deserving limiting belief, and you are super-inspiring to be overcoming it so affirmatively.
love
