I got up from the couch and walked over to the dining room table. After grabbing a pen and a piece of paper I sat down at the head of the table and closed my eyes. I wanted to write anything to get out of my own head for a few minutes. I mustered out a few lines.
ONCE UPON A TIME A GIRL HAD SO MANY DREAMS THAT THEY SPILLED OUT OF HER MIND INTO THE WORLD AROUND HER.
BE BRAVE ENOUGH TO WALK AWAY FROM ANYTHING THAT MAKES YOU TRULY UNHAPPY IN YOUR LIFE.
AM I MAKING A DIFFERENCE? VS. WHAT DIFFERENCE HAVE I ALREADY MADE? #MINDSET
STRUGGLE LEADS TO STRENGTH.
One-liners. My exhaustion was getting the best of me. What did this all mean?
Sometimes I find myself outside of my own mind. I can’t really grasp what I’m doing or remember exactly why I’m doing it. I know these thoughts and feelings will pass. I am well aware that I need sleep to refresh and start a new day with a better outlook. At the same time, I like to take the time to go through these somewhat negative feelings when they hit me. Embracing both the positive and the negative in my life has helped me to understand the world around me as well as my own self throughout the past few years.
We might not always be able to pinpoint where certain feelings are coming from, but it is important to at least recognize them in those moments. Keep in mind that recognizing and embracing emotions is different that dwelling on emotions. Commit to allowing yourself to feel whatever you are feeling, but then redirect your thoughts to a more positive place. This is definitely easier said than done.
With patience, practice, and the allowance of self-love, you can begin to find yourself embracing rather than dwelling more often than not. Reminding yourself that it is okay to be human every now and again. Allow yourself to fall apart a bit just to show yourself how strong you are as you put yourself back together. Avoid beating yourself up from feeling something. Always allow yourself to feel. It is a great reminder that you are alive.
