Choose You

I want to talk about our relationship with our brain.

Do you really know your brain? Are you aware of how you can be the compassion controller of the neuro plasticity of your soothing system.

The neuro plasticity means that new experiences and environments can drastically alter our brain.

Being in a negative environment, without joy or encouragement produces negative neurological pathways and responses to our life, the way we look at ourselves and others.

That environment is actually very bad for us!

By keeping yourself in unhealthy relationships with food, people and routines you are self sabotaging your mental health.

By removing ourselves from that environment or even that negative energy and narrative we are creating immediately creating new positive neurological patterns for us to survive, thrive and ultimately become a more authentic person.

We have a choice!

We can choose to carry on replicating our own misery or we can start validating ourselves by accepting we are unhappy, we cannot accept that this is it.. I deserve more.

By taking that first step towards going to the GP or speaking to a therapist or sharing your thoughts with a friend for support, you can start soothing yourself.

By all means this is hard, and at times impossible to imagine but the point is you don't have to do it alone.

The trauma or origins of our encongrence can change us, but they don't define our future.

We can reclaim ourselves.

"Hope is the thing with feathers that

Perches on the soul.

And sings the tune without the words,

And never stops at all.

Emily Dickinson (1861)
