As a follow-up to last week, I am already feeling much better. While I am still overwhelmed, I've tried to change the way that I am handling everything as well as my outlook on it all. There is really so much for me to be thankful for at the moment and it can be easy to look past that at times. I don't want to forget! We tend to cover up our blessings with our struggles and focus more on the stress factors than we do on the great things happening around us. So much of how we feel connects to our way of thinking. It's like that quote, "Change your thoughts, Change your life." I firmly believe that. It may not always be the easiest thing to do and trust me, as I am sure you have seen with these posts, I definitely have my moments of weakness. However, it really is so essential and makes all the difference.
It's completely normal to get into a funk or to feel bad about certain aspects of life, however it's so important to also be able to snap out of it too. The longer you carry that all around with you, the heavier your heart becomes and the harder it gets to mentally get out of that dark space. Whenever I am going through the motions I remind myself that, "This Too Shall Pass." I sometimes tend to hold on to things that I know I need to let go of. I need to stop trying to change what I cannot control and make adjustments for the things that I can. I've been taking the time to truly reflect and get a better handle/perspective on everything in my life at the moment. It has definitely helped.
So today, I am letting it all go! :)
Instead of making this Life Chats as long as I typically do, I am just going to leave it on that note. Sometimes less is more. I know that this is such a fun and hectic weekend with Halloween tomorrow. Speaking of, still no idea what I am going to be. I literally go through this every single year. Hopefully I can pull something together by tomorrow. I hope that you all have a blast this weekend and as always, thanks so much for checking out this post! <3
