100 Reasons to Evict the Negative Nancy’s

This is my 100th blog post ever! I am so excited and feel like it should be a recognized milestone for Balancing on Honey. My blogging has slowed down recently with end of semester projects taking over, however, I have been excited to write this one, and have had it on my mind for the last few days.

It took me awhile to brainstorm what I wanted my 100th post to be about, but when it came to me, I knew it would be good for me and hopefully others.

Sandi Krakowski is another one of my main women influencers, and rightly so, since she is a Forbes Top 50 Power Influencers in the World and a Top 20 Women Social Media Influencer!Β At the beginning of the week she posted about self talk, and really focusing on keeping the negative lies out of your life. As I read her advice on Facebook I nodded my head, and pursed my lips knowing that I let lies into my head daily, probably hourly if not more often. Needless to say, I struggle with seeing myself the way God sees me, and I struggle with remembering what He promises His children.

If I stop and think about my life, I realize that I am very blessed with daily reminders of how much God cares for me. One huge indicator is my husband. I know God wants good things for me, because He gave me an incredible godly man for a husband. It blows my mind… I hoped for it, but when I look at my flaws, I never would have imagined that I would marry a man so supportive of me. I never thought I would find someone who would be interested in my life and someone so intent on keeping our marriage focused on Christ.

Yesterday, I attended the Conference for Women, put on by the Non-profit Management Center here in Wichita Falls. I went to a break out session called Dream Big. The title caught my attention because I am such a dreamer, but I wanted to learn how to put my dreams into action. The Speaker was Dawn Thompson, owner of Spa Bella, and founder of the Non-Profit, Adopt a Box and Spa Kids. She encouraged the group to fire the negative committee that lives in your head and hire a positive one.

My 100th post, is 100 reminders to replace the negative lies that often rot our minds and stifle our true potential. These are some of my favorite lines I have to tell myself when I start experiencing negative self talk.
