Sometimes we feel shitty. Sometimes we feel like the world is coming to an end, that we've had so many knock backs that things can't get any better. We get into a spiral of negativity that we just don't know what we can do to make ourselves feel better. This feeling is toxic, this feeling doesn't allow you to do what you want to do, or achieve what your capable of.
I can say this whole heartedly, because like any normal person I've felt this way. No matter how positive I am 90% of the time. There is that 10% when I just want to give up. Do you feel this way, sometimes?
However, you can't allow yourself to give up because every cloud has a silver lining. Cheesy I know, but it's true. When things get bad, remember you have the control to make things better! You are not powerless, you have control. So take the steering wheel to your life and drive to your destiny.
How do you take control?
1. Fill your mind with positivity:
I'm an advocate for positive quotes, which is why my instagram is full of them. I'm not just a graphic design and calligraphy fiend (although I can appreciate a good design). But reading positive words or having something written down, to emphasise how your feeling is so powerful and healing. I am such an advocate that I bought the book of mindfulness, which is a book of positive quotes.
2. Remove toxic things and people from your life.
You'd be surprised how eating clean can improve your mood. This is a venture I haven't personally gone to yet. But according to my girl Martina, it's done wonders to her physical and physiological being. I can tell to, she seems uber positive.
I'm a bit of an expert in this, I'm sad to say. Removing people who are toxic and don't have your best interest at heart can be hard,but I promise you that your soul will be healed. Those people were never for you, so why should they ride with you? Cancel them out, and be free.
3. Go for what you want:
I hovered over this subject when I spoke about being unhappy, taking a risk and feeling lost. When you go for what you want, your mind is clear. I can't tell you how much happier I am now that I've done that. Now depending on what you want, it's not going to come easy for some of you. The road to success is a complex and often confusing journey. However, the journey itself is fulfilling and rewarding.
Always remember, that good things are gonna happen, only if you take control. How do you take control?
