The Soundtrack of our Heads.

“You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don't know it, all of that doesn't even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away.”

~ C. JoyBell C.

"You're not good's too hard...or, you'll never get ahead."

Oh, my most beautiful friends, how do we allow such awful thoughts to enter in?

And these, are just a very few of those 'soundtracks' in our heads -

They bobble about, and tug us away from that which matters more, instead...

Begging to be heard, incessantly tugging at the fabric of self-doubt's 'skirt'..

Like jagged shards, they rip straight through...causing irreparable pain and hurt.

We are our own worst critics, our minds continuously weaving stories of blame and self-denigration...

Oh, my dears...but could you just imagine if we might be given the gift of those moments once again?

Those many minutes wheeling away in worry....?

Those days spent lost in despair...?

And, those many weeks overwhelmed by the worsts that might happen?

What might you do with all of those moments once again?

My dears, if I may please share this one little secret with you...

That the only moments that matter, are the ones right here...and right now... with you.

And, all of those feelings of grief and of anger and doubt?

My dears, they are simply just signs of your awakening heart...

Namaste, my most beautiful friends... and try to be mindful of that soundtrack in your heads.
