Life Scripts: One Positive Word Ripples A Million Little Harvest
Every one of us has an inward discussion, an inner conversation going on with ourselves through the day. As a matter of fact, we talk to ourselves than we do to anybody else. We usually talk to ourselves subconsciously, without even thinking about it. But at the back of your mind, you have this reoccurring thought. For most people these thoughts are negative: I’m not good enough. I’m broken. My failures are more than my successes. I can’t do anything right. This kind of negative self-talk keeps people from speaking positive words to themselves, nor rising higher.
I ran into a friend as the lockdown in my country got eased down. She looked pale, sad, and less enthusiastic. When I asked her what the problem was, her response threw me off guard: He says I’m not a good mother. I don’t work hard enough. I am weak. I am… I had to stop her from saying more negative words.
Sounds familiar right? That must have happened to you? The question now is; do you affirm every negative word spoken to you? What are you saying to yourself? What do you meditate on? What thoughts keep you up at night?
You see, the lockdown has kept her husband at home more than he desires. Prior to the lockdown, he travels a lot, leaving her with the children. She is a happy woman. Her children are her pride. She adores and speaks highly of her husband regardless of the fact that he’s never home. But with the pandemic and stay home instructions from the government, the husband is forced to stay at home.
He decided to take out his frustrations on her. And she took all his negative baggage into herself. We have to reprogram our minds. Please quit taking in people’s negative energies into yourself. Learn to speak positively to yourself. Don’t lie in bed every morning nor walk around thinking about everything that’s wrong with you, when in reality there’s nothing wrong with you.
Most people that are filled with negative vibes, speak negatively to others, don’t know any better. You have to get closer to yourself, build your confidence, and shake off those negative messages and experiences, and put on a new recording. Your internal dialogue should always be positive and hopeful at all times. Pay attention to how you talk to yourself. If you talk to yourself in the right way, you’ll not only enjoy your life, you’ll also rise higher to a new level of confidence.
For a long time, I practically lived around a couple who did nothing better with their lives than rain negative words on each other. I often let the horses run free in my imagination, making them go on great adventures with one another as I wonder; why on earth did they get married? As I got older the picture of this couple became clearer to me. Though I grew out of the way they looked, the message stuck: Life had faded away from them. The seeds they both planted in each other was growing simultaneously. With its harvest a million times over.
As I grow older, I have met people who have gone through setbacks in life, disappointments, failures, bankruptcy, and divorce. They go around defeated, broken, and dwell so much on what’s wrong. Words are like seeds. They can take root and grow in a person’s mind for years. Uprooting them can take a lifetime. You need to get your thoughts about yourself moving in the right direction if you truly want to become a better version of yourself.
You’re full potential. Overflowing with awesomeness and creativity. Get closer to yourself and be proud of who you are, your struggles, your achievements. Stop allowing people who don’t know any better to determine how the scope of how your life will turn out. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. Keep the right thoughts playing in your mind at all times.
Parents, husbands, wives, friends, I encourage you all to instill the right thoughts in your mind at all times. Give the best of you at all times. Don’t run each other down with negative words. Words are not only seeds but very powerful. They can make or break anyone. If you’ve nothing motivating, loving, or kind to say to anyone, then please, be still.
Blessings and Love ❤
