Whenever life pulls you down…
Know that what is coming is better than what is gone…
Be strong…. You will make it through…
Today wasn’t necessarily a good day. I went through a roller coaster of emotions all morning and afternoon. I spent pretty much the entire day in my room, with the curtains closed and barely any light cuz I felt so low. Yet I feel like something good came out of being that way all day. I don’t understand why I felt a little lost, bewildered and alone (I know I could have gone out and done something) but I feel like being by myself taught me something valuable so all is not lost out of today. Sometimes some things happen in our lives and even though often we do not understand it, it benefits us in many ways and we should be thankful. Simply put, it pays to have a little faith.
You are more than just a girl. You are more than just a boy. You are more than just a daughter. You are more than just a son. You are more than just a wife and you are more than just a husband. You are more than just a mother. You are more than just a father. You are more than a friend. You are more than a colleague. You are more than just a human being. You are more than the job you have. You are more than the dreams you dreams. You are more than the goals you make and the goals you achieve. You are more than the memories you make and the memories you keep. You are more than the casual hellos and the heart breaking goodbyes. You are more than a shoulder to cry on. You are more than a trustworthy soul. You are more than a guardian. You are more than a savior. You are more than the strength inside and the courage you hide. You are more than the creative individual. You are more than absolute perfection. You are more than a tool and more than a body and brain. You are so much more than you seem… You are you!
Have a great weekend everyone! Xoxo
As humans, I think we’re programmed to never or hardly be happy with how our lives go. Things seem to be looking up right now but I don’t know if I’m happy or not. I think it’s because I still haven’t got back to my writing but nothing seems to be motivating me. I attended a couple of events and thought about reviewing a restaurant or two but even then, I am not completely motivated. I think I’ve still not found myself… Figured out what I want in life or who I am. Like I’ve said before, these things don’t happen overnight. Just because things are looking up doesn’t mean everything goes back to how they used to be…. It’s all about keeping a positive attitude and outlook on life…..
It started out as a bright and sunny Sunday but here I am staring into the afternoon sky and it looks pretty bleak. Grey clouds are hanging low and there’s a cool breeze in the air. Looks like rain; it’ll be here soon. My mood pretty much started out the same this morning. It seemed like a jolly good day but right now I’m not so sure. I’m a little confused about things.
For the past week or so my husband has been acting different. He’s been coming off work early and spending more time with me. He’s been taking me out for drinks and dinners every other night. He’s definitely been making an effort to be extra nice to me and I am seriously baffled by this behavior. I can obviously see that he’s trying to make things better but for all this attention from the man who hardly gave it over the past few months…. It can get a bit overwhelming and baffle you. I just don’t know how to deal with it. I am smiling a lot more than I used to and I am laughing more as well but I’m not quite sure if I am truly happy deep inside. I mean, things can’t be right just overnight! Life doesn’t work that way and my head and heart and desperately trying to figure out what to do… Here’s what I’ve decided though… I’ll definitely never take this life for granted. This journey is temporary so I am going to make the most of it, if it means through this confused phase and I will be okay.
Time for some positivity! The weekend so far is looking up so here’s a tiny quote for each and everyone of you who is going through a rough time. You are not and will never be alone; there will always be somebody else somewhere in the world going through exactly what you are right now. Know that you are loved, important and blessed to go through this journey called life and be grateful for the good things. God does not give you tests that you cannot make it through so know that you can succeed and you can do it. You are amazing as you are and do not let anyone tell you otherwise. Have a great day everyone!
Life is too short to have any regrets so my mantra is to just be who you are, do what you want to do, go where you want to go and say what you want to say. Why shy away? No matter what you do in life, there will always be people who will be angry, upset or disappointed in you. Know that you cannot please everybody at the same time. Listen to your heart and do as you please. Life is too short to be wasted on negativity and other people’s opinions. Make your own choices and go your own way. Keep yourself happy and be exactly who you are – you 😊
