Have you ever wondered about the power of our thoughts? The ability to shape our lives and influence those around us? I recently had a moment of reflection when I realized the immense impact our unfiltered thoughts can have on our lives. They say that thoughts become words, words become actions, and actions become habits. Our thoughts shape our reality and determine the path we take in life. In this article, I invite you to explore some life lessons I have learned from the ramblings of my unfiltered thoughts.

1. Embrace Vulnerability and Authenticity

Our unfiltered thoughts often reveal our truest selves. These thoughts are raw and unguarded, free from any societal expectations. When we allow ourselves to openly acknowledge and accept these thoughts, we embrace vulnerability and authenticity. We learn to become comfortable with our imperfections and embrace our true identities. By doing so, we invite others into our lives authentically, forming deeper connections based on trust and understanding. Embracing vulnerability and authenticity allows us to live a more fulfilling and genuine life.

2. Let Go of Fear and Limiting Beliefs

Our unfiltered thoughts often carry fears and limiting beliefs. These thoughts can hold us back from achieving our full potential. By recognizing and confronting these fears and limiting beliefs, we can begin to let go of them. We can replace them with empowering thoughts that propel us forward. Letting go of fear and limiting beliefs opens up new opportunities and allows us to step outside of our comfort zones. It is through this process that we grow, learn, and discover our true capabilities.

3. Practice Mindfulness and Self-Reflection

Our unfiltered thoughts serve as the perfect canvas for practicing mindfulness and self-reflection. They allow us to observe our patterns, identify recurring thoughts, and understand the root causes behind them. This process of self-reflection enables us to gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and our emotions. By being mindful of our thoughts, we can consciously redirect them towards more positive and productive channels. Practicing mindfulness and self-reflection empowers us to make intentional choices that align with our values and goals.

4. Cultivate Empathy and Compassion

Through our unfiltered thoughts, we gain insight into the range of human emotions and experiences. We realize that we are not alone in our struggles and that others go through similar challenges. This newfound awareness cultivates empathy and compassion within us. It allows us to approach others with kindness and understanding, fostering a sense of connection and support. By practicing empathy and compassion, we create a more harmonious and inclusive environment for ourselves and those around us.

5. Harness the Power of Positive Thoughts

Our unfiltered thoughts can sometimes be filled with negativity and self-doubt. However, we also have the power to reframe these thoughts into positive affirmations. By consciously choosing to focus on the positive aspects of our lives, we can shift our perspective and attract more positivity into our reality. The power of positive thoughts lies in their ability to shape our experiences and create a more optimistic outlook on life. By continuously nurturing positive thoughts, we can manifest our dreams and aspirations.

Our unfiltered thoughts are a gateway to self-discovery and personal growth. They provide valuable life lessons that can transform the way we live and interact with the world. By embracing vulnerability, letting go of fear, practicing mindfulness, cultivating empathy, and harnessing positive thoughts, we unlock our true potential and enhance our overall well-being. So, let us embrace the wisdom found within the ramblings of our unfiltered thoughts and embark on a journey of self-realization and enlightenment.

Winner of 3 Beverly HIlls Book Awards, Sherri Shepherd, of "THE VIEW" calls "40 Days Till 40RTY" AWESOME & AMAZING!


Conceived as 40 Facebook lessons to be posted daily 40 days before her 40th birthday, TeeJ, a bold domestic violence survivor, told all of her deepest secrets and turned her heartbreaks and comedic misadventures into 388 pages of transparent, raw, purging and practical life lessons for people of ALL ages. From ages 18-99, you will undeniably relate to TeeJ as she takes you on a ride full of twists and turns that will have you crying one minute, thrown for a left turn, and then spontaneously cracking up laughing because she has caught you off-guard with one of her unabashed admissions. TeeJ is the hilarious and brutally honest best friend we all want to have.

Veteran TV editor TaJuan "TeeJ" Mercer is a self-proclaimed "hater of writing/lover of people," whose day job consists of shaping stories of popular television shows for network giants such as NBC, ABC, MTV, VH1, TLC, Style, The History Channel and WEtv.

With a revealingly fresh, honestly raw and amusingly incisive perspective, TeeJ bares her soul with grace, humility and humor, as she converses openly with God, family, friends and even complete strangers about the trials, the challenges and the disappointments she has faced, including almost losing her life at the hands of her ex-husband-several times. Each day along the way, TeeJ offers another life lesson illustrating the three concepts for a happy, giddy, and guilt-free life:

* OOPS AIN'T IN GOD'S VOCABULARY releases you from the mistakes of your PAST
* I DON'T FIX CRAZY reconciles the circumstances of your PRESENT
* JUST KEEP WAKING UP reestablishes hope for your FUTURE

Sherri elaborates, "To read of TaJuan’s journey from insecurity to triumph, seeing her willingness to go where few dare, and to be as transparent as she can, will give other women a sense of freedom - that they too are loved by God despite their circumstances and mistakes. Through TaJuan’s journey, I am continually shown that all my faults, insecurities and fears are things God can use... I’m having a hard time articulating just how amazing this book is!

I really LOVE the book. I read this book exactly 40 days before I was turning 40. It had me crying, laughing and nodding my head vigorously. It’s a must read for anyone who wants to release your guilt and doubts and realize God’s ultimate plan for your life. It inspired me to rediscover my own voice.

DEPELSHA THOMAS MCGRUDER SVP, Business Operations - Centric/BET Networks


TeeJ has penned such a truthful, heartwarming, and funny book! It’s like your favorite chick-flick movie, tragic in romance, witty, makes you laugh, makes you cry... And leaves you hopeful! She’s on the upside of anger, hurt and pain, and instead letting you know that moving forward in God’s positive light is always possible... To quote her: You gotta “Just Keep Wakin’ Up!”

LaRONDA MORRIS 5-Time Primetime Emmy Nominated Editor

You are a unique mix of brilliant and adorable! But man oh man, have you lived - you have suffered, shined, paid, and now you are on a winning streak! You deserve all the good your friend upstairs has in store for you! This psychologist gives your book 5+++++++++ stars!

WENDY RICE, Licensed Psychologist

"40 Days Till 40RTY" is an ORIGINAL book that is well-written, beautifully designed and full of heart! TaJuan's unique style of storytelling grabs you right away and the life lessons and stories she shares make you laugh, cry, think, pray and remember what is important in life! I give it 5 STARS, 2 thumbs up and a standing ovation!!

DACKEYIA STERLING, Bestselling Author
