When positivity isn’t enough
I’m writing this post because I need some relief. I know if I do, then someone else out there does too. The past couple of months for me have been very trying. I won’t go too far in detail but things haven’t been easy. I went into a really dark place, allowing my circumstances to shape my reality. It was very hard to see the good in most anything around that time. I was planning for my wedding and life itself made it so hard for me to fully be happy for that day and the beautiful change I was about to encounter. I felt happy the week of my wedding and then my life went right back to how it was. About a Month ago, I decided that I wanted to feel better. I was tired of feeling unlucky, unhappy and stuck.
So, I started affirming myself with positive words, practicing gratitude and reading and watching the most positive uplifting content I could. Life has been a lot better lately and you’d be amazed how much things change when you start with you and change your mindset. Doors have opened up, opportunities have presented themselves and my thoughts and creativity have been at a level that I haven’t seen in a while. This post is for my sisters who have had similar moments and still feel stuck or lonely sometimes. For those of you that put your best foot forward when entering every day and still seem to trip up. For those of us that made the conscious decision to think positively and be our best selves.
I want to encourage you to keep going. Our most beautiful changes come from our hardest moments. This post would not be written and definitely not as sincere if I was in the best place in my life right now. It would be great to have no worries and feel the best everyday. I can’t underestimate the days where I just want to hide out and cry or the days where my mind is going 1000 miles per hour trying to find a way out. Those are the days that move you forward and lift you up.
We all can appreciate our great days but I think it’s time we start embracing the days that really shape us and mold us. Use those days as motivation. Even though they look bad they are the days that grow us into the beautiful women we are. I needed to write this because with every word I’ve felt a little more free and tad bit more thankful. Because the days that could very well break us, build us. We may be confused and troubled today, but we’re growing. We’ll be able to thoroughly appreciate our breakthrough when we arrive because we embraced every step towards it. I love you ladies and I hope whatever you’re going through you’re not defeated . We’re winners boo, We’ll always come out on top.
