This is a friendly reminder for you on this #mentalhealthmonday: There’s legit nothing in nature that blooms all year long. So, you shouldn’t expect yourself to either.
Sometimes I feel like I’m in a groove and I’m conquering all my goals, slaying whatever I put my mind to… and then there are times I put unreachable expectations on myself. I make a list of to-do’s for the day miles long that I’ll never be able to finish, only to end up being disappointed I wasn’t able to get it all done. It puts me in a sour mood. But, instead of thinking about all the things that went wrong, try thinking about all the things that went right.
This morning, I washed my hair. I shaved my legs and didn’t cut myself, which is rare… and I’m 29. I started cleaning and organizing my office which hasn’t happened in months. Oh, and my almost 2-year old is still alive.
I had a lot more to do today. A lot I didn’t finish. I could’ve been working on all those things instead of writing this post. But I feel like this is important. Nobody is perfect. Nobody keeps their crap together ALL the time. When you feel like you’re slipping into a rut, recognize it… then, start finding the things that are going well in life. When you focus on the good, the good gets better.
