21 days

it’s been said that it takes 21 days to break or create a habit. I have done a 21 day cleanse, just once, but that did not do much other than the obvious. I have done a 30 day meditation practice, which was powerful, but life swooped in and I got whisked away in the everyday BS and lost sight of this. I have done a 40 day yoga personal practice, cannot say it was the strongest, but it was done. But somehow after all these time sensitive challenges I go backwards…I wonder why? ….possibly half commitment, reward not big enough, just not focused…could be a combination of reasons, but I am not giving up on the 21 day theory.

for the next 21 days I am going to attempt to break my HORRIBLE habit of negative self-talk.

Recently my boyfriend told me how my negative self-talk affected our relationship because he felt helpless when I would say these thoughts out loud. Having a long distance relationship is difficult already, but when the man you love cannot console you with a hug or a kiss on the forehead, words are the only solve. But what I need to do is buck up, shut up and take these thoughts down before they come out of my mouth and wrestle with them in my head first…

So my plan is to journal when I am having these moments, address what surfaced these feelings, really identify the root of the negative self-talk and start to observe patterns. From there I can better assess what I can do to help myself tame these thoughts. The last thing I want to do is let these nasty thoughts infiltrate the relationships in my life that keep my inspired, fulfilled and supported.

Also in these 21 days I will be sticking to the cLEAN eating program. Green juices, vegetables, lean proteins and no sugar. Arghhhhhhhhhh. I am thinking if I want to purify my thoughts I should complement that with the food I am consuming. It is only fair to give my body and spirit the same opportunity to make a profound change.

Here we go! Of course I will keep you updated along the way…..
