Most beautiful flower

Imagine the most beautiful flower in the world 🌹.

Imagine it blooming 😍.

Imagine that this flower is one of a kind, there’s no one quite like it in the world 💫.

Do you see it in your mind? Is it beautiful? 🤗
:::
Now imagine that thanks to this flower you can do anything you want. Because you’re the only one in the world that has it. It’s like an investment 📈. You have in your hands the most beautiful flower in the world 🌹!
:::
And now imagine this beautiful, unique, precious flower losing its petals, losing its charm 🥀. That would be such a shame, right? The flower is not blooming and you’re losing on your investment 📉!
:::
You NEED TO take care of this flower. You NEED TO water it 💦 to make it grow, you need to make sure it gets the sunlight 🌞. You need to do it all to see it bloom, to benefit from the flower later on as your investment.
It’s quite obvious right? Even a kid knows that you need to water a flower 🌹.
:::
Everybody knows that you need to take care of something precious 🤩. So why won’t you? 🤷‍♀️ Because you know…the flower is you 😉.

Smiley Future – Step 46

Today’s the last step of our intense (and uneasy!) work on sabotaging thoughts 💪
:::
➡️Today’s task nr 1: Now appreciate yourself for all the hard work and congratulate yourself on your success 😎. Yes, success because just noticing the sabotaging thoughts is already a big part of the success! 😉
:::
I realize that working on sabotaging thoughts lasts longer than a week or a month. Those last couple steps were only a stimulus and en encouragement to work! 💪 So remember: everytime you notice a sabotaging thought appreciate yourself with a smile and a good word! 🙏 Same thing when you choose a helpful reaction instead of being tempted! 🤗
:::
If a sabotaging thought you ‘caught’ wasn’t pleasant, you got tense or upset, after recalling a helpful/supporting thought take couple deep breaths and relax your body 🧘🏼‍♀️
:::
➡️ And now task nr 2: Create a system of awarding yourself (daily, weekly, monthly) for your hard work on sabotaging thoughts 🏆. You deserve it! 🤗
:::
Write down some nice, supporting words to yourself appreciating your work 📝
