Speaking life into Existence
Speaking life into existence is something that as women we need to do everyday. The words that is used to create our life is powerful and being more mindful of what you say is important. I have a bad habit of being positive and doubting at the same time. I uphold more negative thoughts and words in my everyday life that it is hard being positive when it comes to myself. It gets so bad for me that when I think negative thoughts my head feels so full of negativity that I feel it can explode. I already was accustom to negativity controlling my thoughts. I never thought it would grab hold of my emotions. Experiencing negative thinking daily I would feel tired, no motivation to begin or finish anything, didn’t want to achieve my dreams, would cry constantly at night before I would sleep, indecisiveness or would just be angry for no reason. I didn’t realize speaking or thinking negative was affecting my life so much until my husband brought it to my realization that every time he talks to me about moving our family to bigger and better things I would follow up with a yeah right or a we cant do that. He finally got so fed up with it that he began to stop sharing with me his thoughts and feelings on everything. I began to feel sad and mad at myself and wanted change. I don’t want to be labeled as the negative one in the group that has no hope, faith, or positivity in anything. So I decided this week to focus on speaking life into existence. I am asking myself how do I do that? Well the only way for me to be consistent with starting is being simple. Starting today I am going to begin saying positive affirmations to myself. I am already thinking “this is corny. It will never work.” I am going ignore the thoughts I am having now and push forward. Below are some affirmations that will start you on the path to speaking life existence. I will write each affirmation on a index card or post it note and tape to my wall. I’ll even go as far as posting a positive affirmation on my Facebook status everyday. I know this will fight my negative mindset and evolve me into speaking life into existence (see speaking positive). Try it with me. It can only make things better for you. Share your experience!

Hey MindfulSistahs! We had some great input on topics to talk about. The first topic I want to be mindful with is mothers in competition. Do you hang with a group of mothers and their is always that one mom who feels that everyone parenting style is wrong but hers is always right? Well girlllll……i got some info for you to help with your feelings and actions and also how to help the mom understand and accept other mothers parenting styles.
Probably at this point you are annoyed and don’t really want or feel like hanging with the mom that downplays everyone parenting. These tips can help with handling the competitive mom.
Tip #1 Be humble: Be humble about your own accomplishments when parenting. Just because other mom tried and didn’t succeed and you tried and it worked doesn’t mean you gotta put it on broadcast. Not saying you can’t gloat about your accomplishments at all. Just be mindful on how you do it and the frequency.
Tip #2 Don’t gossip: I know, I know its hard not to be like “girrlll did you hear how she was going on and on about how she found a good daycare for her child. I bet she getting vouchers.” Lol Come on ya’ll we all as women gossip at times. But how we stop is by becoming aware of it and totally stop gossiping as a whole. Make a commitment to never bad mouth another mother and also remove yourself from the group or individual when it happens. Gossiping will only make the situation worse and it contributes to becoming a competitive mother.
Tip #3 look for good in all parenting styles: If one of the other mothers talk about thier parenting style and the successes she is having at it, step up and be the one that gives her acknowledgement and affirmations. “That’s a good.” “You doing a good job with your kids girl.” “You always have great ways to handle parenting.” Doing this I bet you all the other mothers will see what you are doing and will follow suit. Plus it’s a win win situation because you are giving compliments and soon will be receiving them from the other mothers. Speaking of complementing that moves us to tip number 4
Tip #4 compliment each other: I know it can be difficult to compliment the talky mom who is always tooting her horn. But trust me complimenting her will show her that you are listening and learning. She will eventually start picking up those behaviors and began complimenting other mothers all because you complimented her style.
If you didn’t know competitive mom behaviors only get stronger if you allow them to. So start with these 4 tips in helping yourself deal and change the behavior with competitive moms.
