Hello you! 👋💞 Let’s begin the new month with a ray of hope and positivity in the form of affirmations, notes and perhaps even facts if they hit home, all created to put a smile on your face 😃 (that emoji creeps me out…it reminds me of a nightmare I used to have featuring people going around with weird, fake smiles but we’ll allow it because I gotta let go 🙌😂).
Now, step into the post and remember this moment because you might not leave feeling the same way (it’s like a healthy comparison game as it involves no one else 🤔 – you before vs after 😲😂). In saying you could be impacted by my writing, wishful thinking has clearly joined the chat so we’re good to go! 😌 The main focus here is to uplift so I hope you find solitude in the following collection of mindful rambles. I’ve kept it fairly short so that more can perhaps be conjured up for the start of next month (and there goes me trying to live in the present moment 🌊😂), enjoy! 🌟
Repeat after me: I can handle whatever comes my way this month, onwards and upwards 💫. It’s not even an unrealistic thought, it’s simply the truth! If things don’t work out it’s not a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of what can be done differently so that you stand a better chance next time. It’s all a learning curve but you’ve got what it takes to get where you wanna be!
• Everyday is full of opportunity 🌄. Perception may cloud that at times but it doesn’t mean you stand any less of a chance now or later on when you are of a clearer mindset 💭.
Say it with me: I’m strong and I will get through this! (The fact that you’ve made it this far is a testimony to that 💪…ok that kinda sounded condescending, of course it’s no surprise you’ve made it this far! 😌 Phew, think I saved it there 😂). Think back to the last time you felt you couldn’t do something but found a way to get it done. Don’t let the memory be a sad one through remembering the initial sense of pain, focus on the aftermath where you achieved what felt impossible. It’s not a one time thing, it can be done again 🙌.
• Breathe in negativity = Breathe out calmness 🌜 (moons scream calmness….well screaming isn’t calm but anyway, they EVOKE a sense of relaxation….yeah that’s better. Don’t know where I got that word from though 😂).
And shout: I don’t have to be productive 24/7! – There are so many variations of what is considered to be productivity 😵. You can either be studying/working, watching a your fav series or lighting a candle knowing it will bring about levelheadedness. Getting in that essential self care is important because at the end of the day that feeds your mind to be able to do the rest as well as just being nice to do full stop! 🛀
✓ Happiness is not a choice ALL of the time (there I said it! 🙊). Let that sink in for a minute…….. we’ll call that a minute because I’m impatient 😂. The widespread affirmation that says otherwise can be a daunting prospect to those who really aren’t in the place of having that “choice”. Free will isn’t always that free and it shouldn’t be advertised as being an easy or healthy thing to switch on. It’s much better to occur naturally or anything but from the pressure of others.
I know it’s not intended to have negative connotations and isn’t this deep but in my mind that doesn’t take away from the fact that it has them anyway and it gives me something to talk about 😂. The saying is like a put down in a way because it makes some people (at times myself included) question why it’s not always that easy! A better way to look at it would be to say that in taking healthy, tentative steps towards doing what’s right for you, you’re heading in the right direction towards moments of calm respite that are in fact glimmers of happiness in disguise (my way sounds more technical but if somethings too simple then I do find a way of making it tough to interpret, you’re very welcome 😂).
Right now I’m happy because I had a moment of clarity yesterday evening about something I was doing/looking at all wrong. In seeing this it’s brought on a sort of side goal that doesn’t have or need an end destination, it’s just the way I intend to go about my day with those I love and that came from an out of the blue, random occurrence. I didn’t look for it, in fact I think these things happen when I stop looking 😂 and that’s the beauty of life I suppose. Everything is there waiting to be found however that comes about for you. It doesn’t have to be what you’re told will bring you joy because we’re all different with unique traits, memories and so on ✨.
Happiness itself doesn’t have to be sought after or else it’ll be an unobtainable object through being built up and put on a high pedestal. A good thing to believe is that it’s there already BUT to know that it does tend to get clouded over when expectations tell you what it should be. You know what it is and means for you, you’ll get it and we’re all unique in that way so don’t let that unnecessary viewpoint try to misdirect you whilst you’re on this journey ⚡. God that was a long note 😂.
Sing it: I’m not and will never be alone! 💞 I shouted “sing it” in my head like Coldplays Adventure of a Lifetime 🎶 woohoo 🐒😂✨
• There was a before so there will be an after! (Pandemic I’m looking at you 👀).
Another one for you to say…I dunno, maybe I like the sound of your voice 😂: This month I intend to have no regrets, just a load of lessons learned! 🥇
• Dreams always have the possibility of becoming a reality when work is put into the equation 🙌. Throughout everything going on it can be easy to drift into thinking otherwise but it’s important to not write off what could very well still take place! 🎉 Don’t let anything or anybody hold you back ⚡.
You mean it even if you don’t know it yet: I believe in myself and the steps I take each day. Big or small every one of them is something to be proud of! 🍋
• It’s important to step back and take notice of where you are and what you’re doing every so often. Not in a life stage sort of way but so as to be more present minded and grounded 🌱. After all it’s true what they say about working hard but also playing hard (They = David Guetta, Akon & Ne-Yo and also on another note maybe Johnny from The Shining 🤔sure nobody wants to go down that route but I suppose he was possessed or something like that 😂 sure I didn’t want to watch half the stuff I had to sit through when I was younger but I’m okay right? 😅).
There’s no point in going, going, going because then you’re not stopping to appreciate life or yourself and how far you’ve come. Life is for living and with that must come the acknowledgement of your achievements 👏. Living everyday as though it’ll be your last is another affirmation I don’t like because it isn’t realistic and not only because of the current situation. Trying your best whenever possible is! Now that is achievable. Work with what you’ve got and know that it will all be okay in the end. Just like we never saw the current situation on the horizon, you never know what’s in store for us next in life! (And I mean in a good way 🙌💫 Just incase I didn’t say it clearly to the universe before 😅😂).
Thank you for taking the time to read this!! 😄 Did you like it? If so then you might also be interested in another post of mine: Quotes for Growth & Following your Dreams! 📍✨ which is full of beautiful quotes from Pinterest to carry forward with you! Of course you could probably go find them yourself on there but why do that when I’ve gathered together the good stuff? 😏 It makes sense to me 😂.
I feel lightheaded rn and not in a faint way, in a relaxed way 🍃. Remember, don’t force anything you’ve read, all that matters is that a part of you if not all of your being believes what you’re saying/hearing! More than ever before it would be nice if you could leave a lil affirmation that you stand by in the comments section, I’d love to know it and I’m sure others would too 💥. Let me know what you thought of this post and I’ll see you soon! Take care, stay safe and I hope you have a truly wonderful month after being given your Marching orders! 😝✨💛
