Inspiring Words

Here I am sharing some thoughts from my experiences in my clinical and forensic practice, as well as through my role as a mother of three children, a wife, a daughter, a sister, and a friend.

Do You have an A.W.E.S.O.M.E. file?

Do you have an AWESOME file? You should! It’s good for your mental health and achieving your personal and professional goals.

 

We all deal with our own negative thoughts.  In fact, did you know that about 80% of our thoughts are negative, and that 95% of those are the same as the day before??? No wonder it feels like battling negative thoughts is a constant struggle!

 

On top of that, we have a tendency to take things personally!

 

On top of that, we have a tendency to compare ourselves to others.

 

On top of that, we feel frustrated when we are not achieving our goals fast enough.

 

On top of that, we feel crushed when we are rejected.

 

An AWESOME file helps you stay on track, lifts your mood when you’re feeling down, provides inspiration when you’re dealing with rejection –  instantaneously!  This file is not only helpful in achieving your goals, but is also simply helpful for mental health.

 

And I am ALL ABOUT supporting you with your mental health.

 

So here’s how it goes.

 

YOU create this A-W-E-S-O-M-E file.

 

A – Achievement.

W – Wisdom.

E – Empathy.

S – Strength.

O – Optimism.

M – Motivation.

E – Excellence.

 

Every time you achieve something big or small, write it down.

Every time you are proud of knowledge gained or lesson learned, write it down.

Every time you have connected with another human being and felt that amazing energy, write it down.

Every time you dealt with something difficult and realized that you had strength you never knew was inside you, write it down.

Every time you have a powerful, positive thought about your future and goals, write it down.

Every time you felt motivated and proud, write it down.

Every time you went above and beyond and demonstrated excellence in your behavior and word, write it down.

 

And when you write it down, remember the event in as full detail as possible, using all of your senses.  What happened? When and where did this happen? What did you do or say? What did anyone say to you? How did you FEEL? Don’t forget to write how you FELT. That is the most important part.

 

Any time you are having a difficult day, dealing with limiting thoughts or rejection, or simply need a boost in mood, review your A.W.E.S.O.M.E. file. You can write it on your computer, but it is even more powerful when you use your hand and write in a notebook with your own handwriting. You will feel a boost in mood, and feel more energetic, motivated, inspired, and optimistic by reading your entries.

 

Added bonus – your brain cannot distinguish the difference between imagining an event and living an event. So when you go back and read your entries and imagine the experience that you wrote about, your brain cannot tell that it is a memory! You will receive a boost in mood similar to actually experiencing the event. The more detailed the description and the more feeling attached to it à the greater the benefit.
