- Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and celebrating it for everything that it is.
Your day-to-day is filled with hidden gems, "little" blessings that when you're mindful about, will give you joy in a BIG way.
Don't feel guilty about taking trips to new places, joining workshops, or pampering and relaxing yourself. They are impactful to your mental and physical wellbeing and contribute positively to your growth.
This is a call only you can hear, don't overthink it and trust your gut feeling.
We can easily fall into a worrisome, stressful state which is hard to get out of. Practice positivity in the way you think and reap the benefits of peace of mind.
You might not realize it, but you have a lot of relationships, ones you have with friends, family, in school, at church or work. It's easy to overlook the most important one to maintain, the relationship you have with yourself. Talk to yourself, give yourself encouragement. Most importantly, believe in what you’re capable of.
- Be patient with yourself as you evolve. Small, healthy choices make a big difference in the long run.
Try this exercise, list down what you do in a day and make small adjustments aimed at better, healthier alternatives you can easily do, say, choosing water over iced tea at lunch or spending more time with your family.
Simply let your actions speak louder than words and gossip should naturally die without reason.
Tell yourself, challenge accepted and focus on what you can control to make the best out of a situation. Worrying only worsens the situation.
Mistakes and slip ups are temporary moments in your life you need to break away from. If you keep them in the back of your mind, you’ll always be held back from achieving what you wanted.
Go outside, take snaps of what inspires you, revisit a place you haven’t been to in a while, rediscover your city. Grab a friend and go on an adventure.
Remember, each person’s situation is different which is why you should be comparing your current self with the past self to see how far you’ve come. You’ve done a great job; so don't forget to give yourself a pat on the back.
Your feelings are valid. No matter what, even if you consider it small, insignificant and something that would pass, open it up to someone you trust and love to affirm your worth. You matter and your feelings do too.
You're putting a fight with expectations, standing tall against stereotypes and pushing yourself to your limits, daily, give yourself breaks and be gentle to your soul.
Respecting your worth is also saying no to bad influences, saying no to people, to bad habits and to negative thinking.
It's a life changing experience to change the way your mind sees a situation, a bit of positivity goes a long way and confidence is a powerful feeling that opens a world of possibility. Give it a try.
