Why Daily Rayminders?

A low point. That is where this started. I realized I was stuck. Mentally. Physically. Emotionally. Spiritually. You name it. I reached a point of having such a negative view of myself that I knew I needed a shift in mindset. I kept thinking, “I would never say these things mentally to someone else. How do I say them to myself?” I was focusing on lies that were storming through my head, instead of truths that brought relief. Starting Daily Rayminders came from a point of realizing that I needed to get back to a healthy lifestyle- including mental health, emotional health, physical health, and spiritual health.

So, in order to start the process of change, I knew I needed to challenge myself. But where would I start? Well, I am thankful that 1) a loving best friend kicked my butt (metaphorically) and 2) I decided enough was enough. NO. MORE. EXCUSES.

But… It seems impossible to switch a mindset that had been developed over years. You know, the little lies that add up day by day, creating a massive lie that you believe. How do you change that? How do you relearn something so ingrained in you?

Then came the idea. I’m a visual learner. I love to focus on words or pictures that I see and hey! I just so happened to buy a bunch of sticky-notes for no reason. PERFECT. Each day, I would write something down that was either positive, constructive, truthful, encouraging, or challenging.

It started off as #challengeto25 (as I made this decision on my 24th birthday) but then realized how much this could encourage other people after MORE friends talked with me.

I kept it private for so long because the words, “What if I fail?” was running throughout my head.

Well. Here I am…. 102 days later. STILL AT IT.

And therein lies the birth of #dailyrayminders

…because habits are formed one small step at a time with consistency.

We all need reminders. We all need little bits of truth to focus on daily.

And with that, that is how I am changing negative habits- by one sticky-note a day.
