Hello there Word Press Friends,
It’s been almost 2 weeks since I’ve posted on my blog, and for that I apologise.
This year has had an unexpected start.
I won’t go into the details but, it hasn’t gone as positive as I planned. But no matter, a few twists and turns here and there will not effect my attitude towards the rest of the month, let alone the rest of the year.
I didn’t want to write a post without putting my heart into my words. Also, I didn’t want to read any posts as I don’t fully take them in when I’m distracted or feeling down.
The smallest thing can lift my mood, like these beautiful flowers my friend Jo bought for me over 2 weeks ago. And for that I’m thankful, and remember all the good that’s around me.
A few situations have been thrown my way that could upset, anger and discourage me, but I’ve chosen not to let it get to me.
Some thoughts or ‘problems’, to others may not seem like a big deal, but if I look back at my Outlook on life compared to this time last year, I would of reacted extremely differently.
This shows growth. It doesn’t happen over night, but to take a breath and have a reality check at the situation can do yourself wonders!
‘For every minute you are angry, you lose 60 seconds of happiness’
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Take a step back and put it all into perspective
What is worthy of a complaint, or letting it affect your mood?
Will it affect the rest of your day? Tomorrow, the end of the week? No? Then let it go
You have every right to feel the way you feel, but is it really necessary?
Don’t get it twisted. Your girl can be irrational, and won’t see sense until it’s too late, but, for the most part, I try to swipe away the dark clouds.
Sometimes it can be easier to look at the bad instead if the good, and there are times in life when something will happen, and you can’t change it. It will have an impact on you, but for how long and how much time will you let it steal from you?
It may be a set back, maybe there’s another opportunity, or perhaps it just wasn’t meant to be?
I’m not saying that it’s realistic to put a positive spin on everything in life, but if you try for the little things, it can make a big difference in the long run.
How has your year been so far? Sending love and light to you all.
