Watch what you say PLEASE! We need to talk about your language. You need to clean it up. You’re just mean. I don’t like hearing how you speak, it’s downright negative. Your language is ATROCIOUS! Really. You should be GROUNDED for that mouth of yours!
You’re not talking to your kids. You’re not talking to your spouse, or a friend. Who are you talking to? YOUR SELF!
Why do you talk to yourself that way? Why do we talk to ourselves that way? Man, are we tough on ourselves or what! ” OMG, I look HORRIBLE.” “I am so gross.” “I cannot look in the mirror. ” AT WHAT? Your body? I do get it. I do the same thing. Do you know that I cannot look in the mirror without then looking sideways to see what I look like. All day, every time I go to the bathroom. Like every day is different! Our language is so mean. We are not just bodies, we are souls. We have feelings. We have a heart. So imagine how your friend would feel if you spoke to him or her the way you would speak to yourself. They would be CRUSHED. Now I want you to think outside the box here for a minute and get a little deep with me. Do you think it’s possible that YOU are being beaten down and offended on some level by your own SELF? I mean think about it, really. You would feel so bad if someone shared negative thoughts about you to you. You would totally take it personally. So why then, wouldn’t your subconscious take it personally when you speak that way to you? It hears everything you say, we’ve talked about this in another blog. Your body is more than moving parts, even though that is enough to be grateful for! Your body is life. Your body is love. You were created a perfect you. We mess up, go off path and change our bodies, and yes we can be upset by it and want more for ourselves. All true. Life is so so so busy that we lose ourselves to time. Sometimes the only check in we have is that two second look in the mirror when we pee! And in that two second look in the mirror we make conclusions about our LOOKS. MY bang, my hair, my bags under my eyes, my skin . . . You only have two seconds to look in the mirror because you are BUSY. You have KIDS. You care for EVERYONE else. If two seconds is all you have to connect you to yourself while you wash your hands after you pee, then I beg you . . .
CHANGE YOUR LANGUAGE!!!!!! Take two seconds to look in the mirror and say, “THANK YOU”. To yourself. You are taking care of everyone. Thank yourself. You are trying your best. Thank yourself. You are working like crazy. Thank yourself. Look at yourself with gratitude in that two seconds. You are so busy you deserve to COMPLAIN, you do. But at least thank yourself for doing it all. Your language deserves to not judge you but to thank you because you are freaking amazing damnit! Give yourself a monster break. Give yourself a monster boost. You pay everyone for everything so PAY YOURSELF A COMPLEMENT. And most importantly, every time you look in the mirror, just say thank you. It will be a thank you to your body and a thank you to your soul. Just changing your language from UGH to thank you, will change your actions. Do you think we can try this exercise for one week? Who is with me? I’m starting tomorrow.
Washing hands. Looking in the mirror. Fighting the negative. THANK YOU KATHI!
See you in great shape,
