Happy August everyone! Hope y’all are doing well, I am back once and for all lol (it’s been a long time coming)
Its the start of a new month and I hope for nothing but positive vibes, success, and new opportunities for everyone this month!
Lately, I have been going through a time of change and not really knowing what is the right path for me in life. I don’t know about y’all, but I am a pretty positive and optimistic person most days, but like everyone, I sometimes struggle on always keeping that positive mindset. No matter how positive a person you are or how positive you try to be, bad days are inevitable. Every once in a while they happen, regardless if we plan to have one or not.
I’m here to tell you its okay. Whatever you’re going through, its okay because it will get better, maybe not at this exact moment, but eventually it will.
I feel like society has put this imaginary timeline in our minds of things that we NEED to achieve or this step by step list that we NEED to follow in order to have the absolute perfect life. However, your life is not a race and there is no exact timeline when things need to happen. Everything will happen and fall into place whenever it is intended to.
Whether you’re a recent college graduate and you’re worried about not having the perfect job lined up right after college, not being engaged or even being in a relationship when people the same age around you are getting engaged/ having families, you’re still living at your parents house when all your friends have already moved out of theirs, if you’re still in college when all your friends have already graduated, or if your going through a tough breakup or loss of a friendship. There are so many situations that happen out of our control or not as we plan, but the important thing is to enjoy your life and not be in a rush to make things happen. Not everybody’s story is the same and that’s what makes you unique.
When I’m having a bad day, I usually have a few songs that I listen to, so I thought I would share them with y’all. Some of them are cliché but the words really do speak volumes. I usually put the playlist on shuffle and let the songs play on and once I’ve listened to the playlist entirely, I make sure my mood is changed and I am back to being my positive self again. I’m sure that I will add more songs to this playlist as time goes on but so far this is what I have, enjoy!
Another thing that I have found comfort in is buying plants such as succulents and cactus’s. All you have to do is show them love, water them often, and provide them sunlight. Its so amazing being able to watch them grow and flourish and it is kind of a beautiful metaphor of yourself and how you are growing and flourishing with these plants.
Remember: its not a bad life, just a bad day.
Keep your head up and continue to keep living your life at your own pace, at the end of the day what matters is that you are happy and being the best person that you can be 🙂
