In a recent post on my FEED, I discussed the need for an emotional outlet, one of them being my Pinterest board of soothing words. I too have good and bad days. I think emotional maturity lies in tuning into every fiber of feelings you may have. I woke up today realizing a few major necessities in my life. If you are going through a life lesson, a challenging point in your life life or perhaps a stressful transition, I find working through them with uplifting intentions help me lay out the problem at hand and send it on its way.
Food for thought...
What's in the past, let it pass.
Don't sacrifice your peace worrying about things you cannot change. In this life we have two paths in overcoming any obstacle. Changing the outcome, or changing the way you view it. In all situations, you have a choice. I say in every path, there is a happy alternative.
Positive thinking always leads to a positive outcome. Focus on healing yourself through everything you love. Creativity is a magical thing, utilizing your passion is a tool to demolish any stressors.
Never lose your worth. Of course, you can accept apologies, rectify situations and try your best to be the best person in any situation, but NEVER let someone dim your light or take your worth.
Do not fall for a magicians trick twice. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
Never let someone believe they can waltz in and out whenever they please, or whenever it suits them. You are not an option, second to last resort, or will be there when something falls apart. Of course, you will want to support them and their hard time, but don't confuse their outreach, it may be another moment to take advantage of your good heart - be careful.
Happiness is not a race, there is no winner. In life, always be happy for others while flourishing your own garden. The focus should always be on your path while allowing your nourishment to pour out of you.
Personal peace is when you no longer fill your mind with negative thoughts, release yourself from over-thinking anything that doesn't concern you.
Healing is a process. Coming to a place of personal peace, happiness, positivity and contentment is one of the best and longest journeys of your life. Enjoy every step forward and even the steps backwards, they lead to the inevitable destination. I promise, it will be a blissful one.
Everything happens for a reason. You may not know the reason right now, but it always reveals itself in time. When you arrive to where you are supposed to be, you will understand. In the mean time, emerge yourself in three pillars of happiness: forgiveness, self love and ridding yourself of any and all negative thoughts.
Forgiveness is not for the other person, it is for yourself. Letting go does wonders on mending any disheartened heart. Self-love is the next tool to piece yourself back together on your bad days. I always forgive, but one of my undesirable qualities I hope to transform is my tendency to hold a grudge. My mind is a captive sometimes and a part of my self-love regime is about letting go of negativity (part three goes hand in hand). Focusing on yourself, personal happiness and finding things that make you happy is the way to go about your next steps forward.
I hope this helps anyone overcoming a personal obstacle. Every day is a new day to overcome adversity, stresses, challenges, but each day can bring you relentless happiness. This weekend was filled with just that. To find out how I spent my weekend, click on me.
