So, I originally thought I was going to write about my new manicure. But then I thought, what’s another manicure post? So, I decided to write about something a little closer to my heart.
Sometimes life can suck in a major way. And when I say major I mean MAJOR. But it’s in these times that we must remember to stay strong and extra positive.
And I’m speaking from experience guys. Trust me on this one. Because I don’t want to bring you down with all of my drama, I’ll spare you the details. But in a nutshell things suck for me right now and I do mean suck. Like hard. And no matter how much I try to make things better, they only seem to get worse.
So what’s a girl to do? Should I shut down and hide from everyone? Lash out and yell? Cry in a corner? No way! I won’t do that. Well, I did cry a few tears. But after I was all dried up I decided to stop trying to fix my problems and instead be still, have faith and remain positive about them.
Yep I decided to find the blessing and the lesson in my issues. And you know what, I DID! But it wasn’t as easily done as it is said. I mean, I’m still working through these issues. (WOULD SOMEONE HELP ME, PLEASE!) But I decided to change the way I was thinking about them.
Rather than worrying and crying, which never gets you anywhere, I decided to stay positive, shut out all negative thoughts and all negative sights and sounds.
So, for example: If someone says something negative to me, I cut them off with a positive statement or shut them out completely. And if I stumble upon a negative movie or TV show, I quickly turn it off. And of course I ceased all negative speech from my mouth. Yep! Removing the negative energy from my life, even those that have nothing to do with my recent situation, have helped me to maintain a positive mindset towards my current problem.
And though things still kind of suck, at least now they suck with a meaning. Now I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and soon I’ll be able to see the much bigger masterpiece that this little stroke of paint fits into.
And you know what, I’m actually quite excited about it!
So tell me how do you handle tough situations? What do you do when your life sucks? Let me know in the comments below!
