Lost for words at times
Confronting & acknowledging my life
If l can change something, then l will take action! And change it! But if l can’t change it, then l have two choices. 1, either accept it and let go of the negativity, or 2, make myself miserable by obsessing over it. I choose to accept it and let it go.
So if l want thing's to change, l need to start by changing myself.
Your outer world is a reflection of your inner world. We all know people whose lives are chaotic and stressful. And isn’t that largely because they feel chaotic inside? Yes, it is! We like to think that changing our circumstances will change us. But we have it backwards, we need to change ourselves first before our circumstances will change.
If l didn't get something l wanted, does it mean something better is coming?
That’s hard to believe sometimes, I know. But it’s true. Usually, when you look back at your life, you will be able to see why it was actually a good thing that something didn’t work out. Just have faith that everything happens exactly the way it’s supposed to. Better thing's will come.
Allowing myself to exprience joy! Believe it or not, I know way too many people who don’t allow themselves to have fun. And they don’t even know how to be happy. Some people are actually addicted to their problems and the chaos in them so much that they wouldn’t even know who they are without them. So l try to allow myself to be happy! Even if it’s just for a small moment, it’s important for me to focus on joy, not my hardships.
People, including myself aren't victims. You are only a victim of your own thoughts, words and actions. No one 'does' something to you. You are the creator of your own experience. I need to take personal responsibility and realize that l can get out of my hard times. I just need to start with changing my thoughts and actions.
I try to take things day by day.
Be grateful for my health.
Try to sleep well🙄
Set myself goals - as that can lead me to a continious path of self developement.
Learn acceptance and self acceptance - no matter what l can't change the past. Nor can l change things that are beyond my control.
No matter what life throws at me, l will always get back up, dust myself off and wait for the next installment that life has to offer me and embrace it with a smile on my face and love in my heart.
Until next time, take care of you x
