Unemployment, life trauma, moving to different cities, and traveling far too much has impacted my think patterns.
It all started about a few months ago when I realized I couldn’t catch a normal breath. I went to the doc thinking I had Asthma but found out I have the highest possible oxygen content for a Coloradan. Not Asthma…anxiety.
My negative thought patterns were directly impacting my ability to intake oxygen, unacceptable. But once I understood what was going on, I was able to stop it.
If my thoughts are affecting my breathing, what else are they poisoning?
I started to rewind my life and think about all those years on the ice and my dreams of making it to the Olympics. And I realized I never fought to win gold, I just wanted to make it to the games and carry a flag. I have always thought that would be enough, to participate. I never even considered all that hard work should set me up for gold.
As an adult I do the same things. I need a job. But I have a choice here. I could settle and take the first job that picks me, or one that I work for and dream about and will stick with.
I’m determined to reprogram my brain. I must learn to think and react differently to life. And I have a feeling some of you need to do the same thing.
So I’m starting a blog series called “I’m determined to….”
I will be posting different pics for you to download, print, or share with friends. I figure we can start small and conquer our thoughts before they take over!
Today, I’m determined to FIGHT! I’m going to fight negativity, apathy, doubt, worry, criticism…!
Are you determined?
