Do you ever get so overwhelmed with everything going on in life and wish you could shut everything down for a day, hour, or even for just a minute? If it’s not one thing, it’s another; we never get a break.
I always strive to be as positive as I possibly can, because I do believe that there’s a bright side to everything, even if sometimes that bright side seems just a little bit less dark. I also want to keep my blog as honest and open as I can because I know so many times we think we’re the only ones struggling when really we all are sometimes. There’s no doubt that my life is a little extra crazy than I would like it to be right now. Having struggles does not mean you’re being negative, but pretending like you don’t is going to hurt you too. I needed to write this out to remind myself and hopefully to remind you of what is really important. You are important, what you want to do is important, your goals are important, no matter what they are. Your mental, emotional and physical health is important, and whatever it takes to maintain that is important. Whatever is going on in your life right now that is disturbing your peace needs to be addressed. For me, I tend to let problems that aren’t my own consume me and break me down. They say misery loves company and there’s no doubt about that. Today I needed to remind myself that I get to decide what challenges I face, and in most situations I can choose not to.
Think about what you’re worrying about right now and how many of those worries are actually things in your control? If it’s out of your control, then what good is it doing for you to be worrying about it? I know, much easier said than done, but there’s always a starting point. Whatever is going to happen, is going to happen. We could be using this energy to be doing something for ourselves, rather than wasting it on something or someone that isn’t worth it.
Its mind blowing how easily we can change what we do with our lives, we could change it in a second if we really wanted to. We talk about how much we want something or how badly we want to change something but we never take the next step in doing it. We get one life and one try to do it right, and sometimes I forget that and lose sight for a moment but it’s SO important to remember. As cliche as the saying is, we are in control of our lives, we decide what is a priority and I highly recommend making yourself number one on the list. Whatever it is that is trying to take that spot or making you feel like something else is more important, is the problem. No one is going to wake up everyday and make sure that you are your first priority, so you need to wake up everyday and do that. I suggest that next time life is overwhelming you and you feel like you need a day, an hour or even just a minute, take it.
A small side note: I can not stress enough how important I believe mental health is. I hope every single person that reads this knows that. Because once you jeopardize that or let someone else jeopardize that, it is such an obstacle to get back. It’s not something you can see and often times not something we even are aware of until it’s gotten so bad. Also if someone you know tells you something about their mental health, don’t assume they’re making excuses or lying. It is so so important.
