Day 15: 31 Days of Life in the StepMom Trenches (Vlogtober)
Today, I’m sharing with you an idea that comes from a class that I teach: “catch your negative thoughts.” I love this expression and what it signifies. It acknowledges that we all have negative thoughts and encourages us to catch them when they enter our head.
I believe it is important to understand and accept that negative thoughts happen. It’s what we do with our thoughts, both positive and negative, that really define our day.
In today’s vlog below, I share with you the phrase and how it benefits us stepmoms. It works much better than just telling yourself “don’t take things personally.”
Takeaway: Remember this phrase: “Catch your negative thoughts,” and think of it when negative thoughts enter your mind. It is normal to have negative thoughts. It’s what we do with these thoughts that can define our mood, our actions, our state of mind. Catching our negative thoughts doesn’t mean we don’t have those thoughts but rather says we are going to catch them before they catch us off guard and cause us to say or do something we might regret.
