Eleven days and we’re nearing the end of the second week of the be kind to yourself challenge. I start pondering how much progress I’ve made and how much further I’ll go. I mean this in a positive light, I’ve made effective developments psychologically. Looking at where I am at the moment, and comparing to who I was before the challenge started to where I’ll end up is fascinating.
Upon reflection, one mantra stood out the most to me,
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
I know it may seem like a quote to many, but over time it has become my mantra. I have this written everywhere, from my notebooks to the walls of my bedroom (hidden, in small print). Eventually, someone is bound to find it but hopefully, it inspires them. Over time, the mantra has become more meaningful as I use it less as time goes on.
I will take this as a good sign, representing how much I have grown and continue to learn. For today’s task, the goal is to discover or create your own mantra. A mantra that you resonate with can have a more powerful effect on your personal journey of growth. In moments of instability, I will repeatedly use the mantra to ground myself. The most noteworthy of this task is not only the strength of words, they also attribute to the feeling of strength. I know this may seem strange, but give it a try! Remember, choose what makes you feel the most comfortable and the most powerful, you never know when you need it.
