Hey Soul Friend,
What you put out, you receive back into your life.
Take a look and see how you are treating people.
Are you talking to them in a way that promotes good things to come your way?
Or are you being a bit of an a-hole?
Be aware of your thoughts. If you have a smile on your face but a snarky commentary going on in your mind - guess what signal will be sent out to the Universe?
Not the fake smile, that’s for sure.
If you do suffer from the “fake smile” syndrome, know that there is time to change the thoughts in your mind.
Just because you think something, you can chose to pick a different thought.
All you need to do is:
1) Be aware of the rude comment
2) Tell yourself you’re not going to repeat that habit
3) Pick a nicer, friendlier comment.
(Sidebar - is friendlier even a word!? hahah)
With time and practice, this will become second nature to you.
Until then, asking yourself the below three questions will help you decide if you need to pick a new thought:
Is it kind?
Is it true?
Is it necessary?
If you can answer yes to all 3 questions, then you’re good.
If not, keep practicing the 3 steps above to train your brain to be nice.
After all, the world needs a little more kindness.
I’m curious, have you practiced these three questions before? Has it made a difference in your life? In your stress levels?
If so, I’d love to hear your story so please comment below!
