Mantra of the Month – Get Out of Your Head

Too often we live inside our heads and formulate responses to situations before we give them a try. We question everything or automatically think of the worst that could happen. Sometimes, it is us who block our blessings by our preconceived notions. So for this month, I’m urging myself and others to let’s get out of our heads and experience things for what they are. To do this we have to:

1/ Stop Overthinking: Yes, I know we all desperately want to achieve our goals or set plans but we can also ruin them before anything happens. Stop second guessing yourself and start believing in your actions.

2/ Go With the Flow: The best things in life are unexpected/spontaneous . You don’t have to plan out everything because more than usual things don’t go as planned.

3/ Think Positively: Stop worrying and have faith that things will work out in your favor. What’s for you will be for you. Don’t compare your success to anyone else’s, you’ll get there when it’s your time.



Life is tricky baby, stay in your magic.
