When the weather is cold and dreary, I tend to be more introspective(pretty sure I have said this before). The weather makes me want to shut down and sleep for days, I think that’s part of winter and its charm though. We store our energy, and save it up for summer where we can let it all out. Lately I have been trying to get my life in order for school in two weeks, the internship, and the possibility of a new job opportunity that will be unfolding in the next few months. I am full of nerves, my mind is usually running 1,000 miles a minute, and I definitely feel unsure about a lot of things.
When I start to think about the past, or past situations, I usually tend to reflect on those by judging how I handled a situation, or if I would change it looking back. Some of the best times of my life have come from maintaining a positive attitude and putting in 100%. I’m usually the one who thinks everything bad is going to happen so for me, this can sometimes be a struggle. My mama always said never to dwell on the bad things, because they’ll always over shadow the good things. And it’s completely true.
I’m sure you can all think of someone you know in your life who is the constant Debbie Downer. Always making their lives a pity party, someone who claims nothing good will ever happen to them. These people are draining. And I really can’t stand it. What most people don’t realize is that your life is going to be what you make it to be. If you want something, you have to work hard for it, and nothing will be handed to you. It’s hard to put in effort, but it must be done.
Don’t get me wrong, negative things can happen from time to time, but it’s about embracing all of it, and making sense of it. No one lives a perfect life, so it’s important to remember how much you can get out of your own life by just being positive and sending out positive energy. I guess where I’m going with this is that I am pretty nervous about the next few months. I’ve thought to myself that I won’t be able to handle it, and that things may be hectic for a while. Then I realized, not too long ago I was working three jobs and I was seriously exhausted, and it all paid off. My strength has been tested multiple times, and the best thing of all? I made it.
So when I start to think negatively or anxiously about the new and upcoming things in my life, and I try to remember that I know I can get through anything. I remember a time where I was tested as an individual, and I survived it. As human beings we underestimate what we can handle, until we put it all on the line, and then once we’re out of it, we feel empowered. So I hope on this Monday you can add a little positive spin to your day. Hope you have a good one!
