Hey everyone! How are you today? 🙂
Bit of a short one today but thought it worthwhile to share 😊
Today was ehhh. Like, there’s no other way to describe it. Running on 2 hours of sleep. Counselling appointment this morning, which I cried my eyes out during half of it. General feelings of being unmotivated, worthless, anxious. Everything is loud for me today. I spent the majority of it in bed.
I could sit here listing the bad stuff (which I basically just did), which is important. You gotta write that list. You gotta acknowledge what’s bugging you.
But you know what else is important? Writing more than 1 list, so you don’t dwell on the hard stuff. I wrote 3 day.
1 – for all the things that are keeping me down today.
2 – all of the benefits that I get from my suffering.
3 – factors in my life that I can control.
The last 2 were eye openers for me. I was amazed to see how much I’ve grown as a person through these hard times. My compassion & awareness of others and myself has increased significantly over the past year. My courage, perseverance & resilience have hardened me into the accepting strong person that I am.
What I want you all to think about today, however: is what YOU can control.
YOU can control your thoughts. I know it may feel like you can’t, but you can. You get to choose what thoughts you invest in. You can choose what views you have on yourself and other people, but you can’t choose what others think of you. You can choose how you perceive a situation and react to it. You are in control of your actions. You can control who you interact with and the type of people you surround yourself with. You can control how you use and manage your time. And most of all, You can control your outlook on life.
There’s something to ponder for a while, lovely people ☺️
I hope you all have a great day/night. Any questions, again feel free to email me or comment below, or visit my Instagram page – @breannas.blog!
Much love ❤️
