You Are Not Your Thoughts

Happy new year everyone!

I took the last two weeks of December completely off.

I spent two weeks binging tv, eating fun snacks, not exercising, and engaging in pure GUILTLESS bliss and relaxation!

πŸ™Œ Guilt-LESS: Free from feelings of guilt

This was unimaginable a few years ago when I first started working with my amazing life coach Michelle Gauthier. I was plagued with guilt. If I breathed your air by accident, I felt guilty.

Michelle guided me to become aware of my thoughts that created feelings of guilt. She taught me that I am NOT my thoughts. And that those thoughts are OPTIONAL.

Then she had me write down anytime I felt guilty and what those thoughts were.

This morning, as I flipped through pages and pages of my old notes, my mouth was agape…

My thoughts ranged from guilty for:

β›” not producing my mom grandkids

β›” getting diabetes

β›” scheduling an hour work meeting vs 30 minutes

β›” standing up for myself in a facebook post

β›” not being there for my dad enough when he was sick

I can’t believe I ever lived like this!

As my awareness of my thoughts grew, Michelle taught me to watch my thoughts pass, like a cloud in the sky. I am NOT my thoughts. I can choose NOT to believe my thoughts.

And the more I watched them pass, the less guilty I felt. Until one day, poof! The guilt just stopped.

πŸͺ„It felt like magic πŸͺ„.

Now, I still have a human brain. I’m not saying I’ve never felt the emotion of guilt ever again! But it’s not a daily struggle like it used to be. But now I have the tools to manage it, the way I manage all other emotions.

Do you struggle with guilt? Shame? Anxiety? Other emotions you’d like help managing? I can help! Set up a free consultation – Lauren@lifecoachingwithlauren.com. Lets chat! #LifecoachingwithLauren
