Motivational Monday: What's in your thought closet?


 I am trying something different, I want to start sharing more of me.  I am not just about fashion I also have a strong faith in God, and on Monday's I want to share something motivational.  As much as I LOVE fashion, shopping and shoes, I need to turn my focus back on to what is more valuable to me.  Faith is not something I can see like shoes, so it is very easy for me to get distracted and focus on material things.

A couple of years ago I was very blessed to be part of a bible study at church on a book by Jennifer Rothschild: Me Myself & Lies.  It was such an amazing experience to learn how powerful my thoughts are and how I could change all the negative talk in my thought closet to positive powerful words God wants us to speak to ourselves.  I tend to be very harsh on myself and say everything from you are so ugly, you will never be good enough. 

In the book Jennifer refers to your thoughts as a thought closet, which I can totally relate to since I love fashion so much.  It made so much sense to me, if you gather all your thoughts and write them down like a thesaurus, what would your thesaurus say about you?   I want to start building up my thoughts with truth and not lies. 

What is in your thought closet?  Do you speak truth or lies to yourself?  I hope you will come back with me next Monday to see what I have learned, it is a 6 chapter book so only 5 weeks left to share and learn how to build up our thoughts together!  

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Psalm 19:14

  1. This is a wonderful, refreshing idea! My 'thought closet' is much like yours, I am not good enough, pretty enough, smart enough, thin enough...

  7. I like that you share spiritual thing. I love the subject. I am aware of the lies and i catch them. I also think that if you had mean people around you for a long time they will bleed in your thoughts. Lucky me i got away from those people. I am following you and thank you so much for the visit.
    Have a blessed week!

  8. I tend to think negatively about myself too, I am my harshest critic. But it's something I work on everyday, I guess the first step is recognition right? Love this, looking forward to the upcoming posts!
