That wasn't the real problem though. After watching my son in tears with the employees at the store, I had a thought.
This isn't who I am. I don't want to be this kind of mom.
I decided it was time to change.
Since this wasn't me. It was time to prove that to myself.
The kicker: I've done self-improvement guides before.
I've done the journaling, the video-watching, none of it worked. It all took too much time and was complicated or philosophical.
I finally found one that was different.
I finally found one that worked.
It was a self-improvement journal that was so simple, so practical, that I actually took action on it.
The surprising part:
It was from BELLA ELLA BOUTIQUE.
I now didn't blame myself for never being able to improve my situation.
It was always because the process was too long, too complicated, and not practical enough.
For years, I have been telling myself that I needed to go to someone that was famous in the self-improvement industry, but most of that stuff is meant to never change you so you keep buying their stuff.
When I figured out my thoughts were not true, I was finally able to break out of their chains and get the results I deserved.
The real problem is I was listening blindly to others. They were the ones keeping you and me from really improving because we haven't listened to ourselves.
Once I realized the power of improving was in me, I just needed to ask the right questions, that's when I started to change REALLY fast!
No more 100-day challenges, it was 7-days I started to really learn about being me.
Being the best me. The best mom for my kids. The best wife for my husband. It was my time to remove the shell that was placed on me and show out.
I didn't realize when I started that not only does this journal help you change, but it also helps you discover your true self, asks the right questions, and gives you some pride of you are and who you are becoming.
So of course, I had to show that pride off with buying the Growth Mindset Graphic Tee.
