Mind >Matter

posted in: Inspiration 0

Haven’t you ever wondered why people go back to their old ways? They worked so hard to change their ways, lose weight, to quit smoking, drinking, cussing or whatever bad habit they have picked up. They do so well for a while and then go back to it. Do you know why? They never became the new person in their mind, never believed they were good enough or worth great things. They never forgave theirselves from past wrongs so its sort of a form of self-punishment, or self-sabotaging.

What makes us default back? We forget to change our mindset, in our heads we’re still the shamed fat kid, the smoker or drinker, the damaged goods. The person not worth changing for.  The person who thinks they’re going to die anyways of something, so who cares. To create habits in our lives it has to start in our minds good and bad habits. Every action comes from a thought, we envision it and then it becomes an action. When it becomes an action without thought, that’s when it becomes a habit. We have to reset our thinking to reset our actions. 

Most weight problems or problems with addictions can almost always be traced back to someone’s lack of self-love and self-worth. Why do people not think that they are worth taking care of?

If you don’t take care of your body…
where are you gonna live? 

Most of the time we all think that taking care of others is more important than taking care of ourselves. I was one of those people for years and years, I thought if I took care of everyone else that they would want to take care of me… Much to my dismay that simply was not true…

The best way to care for the sick, broken, poor or unhealthy…
is to not be one of them!

How can we possibly take care of anyone if we are worn completely out, broken down or too poor to be able to help ourselves? To serve others at our best we must become our best.

How about how we treat ourselves? Would you dare treat anyone the way you treat yourself or talk to anyone that way??  Most would say a big fat NO to that. Most of us would probably be sporting a big shiner or a fat lip if we talked to others the way we talk to ourselves. STOP IT!!!

If you don’t have anything nice to say…

~said everyone’s mother ever… or maybe just mine 😉

Start talking nice inside and out, become your best caretaker, become your best friend, mom yourself even. You are the only one who truly  knows what you need. Stop, feel and listen to what YOU need, if you need alone time, find it; If you need friendships and connections find them. If you need a beach, find it! Whatever it takes. No one can bring us happiness, it has to come from within. It is not fair to put that burden on anyone else. It would be nothing but a let down on all accounts.

If you’re sacrificing your own happiness trying to make everyone else happy, it will be a hugely wasted effort! The truth is your happiness matters, to everyone around you, just as their happiness matters to you. If you’re not happy, they never will be. And if someone you love isn’t happy you will never be. You can’t force happiness on them, they have to choose it, and you being happy inside is a step in the right direction to their happiness as well. I’m sure you have heard the saying…

If momma ain’t happy, nobody’s happy.

RIGHT!?! Your happiness matters to the world. Make sure it matters to you. It doesn’t make you selfish or narcissistic. It makes you strong, secure, a better person, a better friend, a better parent, better worker. Better all around. Don’t Worry, Be Happy. and I hope it gets the song stuck in your head 😉

Change Your Mindset, Change Your World~ BetterMeTribe

So, It all starts in our minds, we can lose all the weight or make life changes but if we don’t fix our broken minds that got us to the place of a broken body or the broken life, then nothing will stay. Fix the source for permanent changes. It also is massively important to surround yourself with people who help you become who you are trying to be, and not holding you back. Find your people and build your tribe. We would love you to become a part of ours! <3

Hello beautiful souls. I'm Angielee, creator of BetterMeTribe. I'm a heart-first adventuring healer of souls. My calling is to heal the soul of the world by healing and filling one heart's cup at a time. I will teach you how to heal, fill, and overflow your own love's cup into the world, starting with the love cup inside of you. Healing and filling every area of your life so that you can overflow love into, onto, and all over others. A better world begins inside of each of us. And that is where BetterMeTribe Begins. I have had the privilege of unlocking and unblocking hearts, healing, and filling souls with the overflow method on stages big and small, in over 13 different countries on three different continents and 58 worldwide humanitarian aid mission trips. I have written eight books, three children's books that are launching soon, and this inspirational blog with over 900 heart healing posts with 50k Tribe members. I have been coaching teens and adults, one-on-one, families, groups, hosting, and speaking at events for over 20 years. But my life wasn't always like this. Through terrible traumas and a childhood that would make Stephen King have nightmares, I had to go through massive amounts of healing, forgiveness, and transformation myself. Overcoming those wounds has helped me to be able to be the best resource possible for helping others heal and use my own experiences and the experiences of many others to help as many as possible. There isn't much that someone can share with me that I have not been through, or helped someone else through. Being a natural problem solver and a deep empath, I find and pull out your strengths to become your best self. I teach you how to flow and grow through things so that you can become the beautiful being of overflow that you too were meant to be. Rising from the ashes and turning your life of pain into a life of beauty. I show people how to be love in all situations, to themselves, to others, and ultimately to the world, how to love the unlovely, even, and especially when that unlovely is us. I teach fun tools and tricks to help fill life's cup so that you are able to help others in a much bigger way than you ever thought imaginable. We can't help the sick, broken, or poor by being one of them. It is time to stop trying to serve from an empty cup running on empty fumes and overflow your own magical goodness into the world in a way that only you can. The world needs you. You need you. I need you. You are worthy of so much more than you even know, and I am here to help bring out that best self in you: transforming your life, healing one hole in your heart's cup at a time. Whatever your goal or obstacle is, I will help you flow like water through it, over it, or around it to help your soul become the majestic ocean, it is meant to be. Open your heart and allow me to pour into you, to teach you methods to keep your cup full so that you can start pouring better things into others. This is what Overflowing is all about. Allow me to overflow my love into you. Start with the search bar, search for the thing you need the most, and read those posts. Take the actions inside of them and apply them to your life. If you would like someone on one time with me, to talk deep heart to heart stuff, shoot me an email at angie@bettermetribe.com, and let's have a talk. I'm here for you. Your heart matters to me and I am here to heal it.
