Heyy there, you fabulous thing you! 😉
How’ve you been?
So its been exactly 24 days days since “My Heart Break” transpired and it is fair to say, its really not been easy… 😥 I know it’s gonna take an unknown amount of time for me to heal fully, but so far each day has been another step forward (ish), … Anyways, onwards and onto POSITIVES VIBESSS , as promised !
Back in my first blog I had mentioned how I had a drive to; feel more energetic, obtain positive vibes and throw in a few worthwhile challenges this year…
Lets Be Fabulous
For so long I haven’t felt myself, but I feel that now that I have just turned, ‘Twenty Three’ (an auld bird).. I think it’s about time that I find that fabulousness in meee again by following a few helpful steps towards positive vibes so lets be fabulous together shall we…?
Even if your not feeling super positive today no worries, just by applying a few or even planning to follow a few of these steps could change your mood and mind set for the best. At the end of the day A happy you = A happy life, and happiness makes the world go round 😉 … Yah?!
The Steps to positive vibes:
No 1 Learn to love yourself Gal!
Take pride in who you are, and believe in yourself in all that you are. You have achieved so much ! It is important that you are comfortable in your own skin. Do whatever it takes to make you feel good about yourself… Take that hundredth selfie in your new top and post it, because thats you, and you should be proud of that! YOLO ! We have all experienced a lack of self confidence and some form of self doubt at some point in our lives, but its important that we don’t beat ourselves up too much because that only leads to feeling really dull, (been there, done that, got the t-shirt… several times and it doesn’t suit me!!). Being dull is not productive for anyone, especially not for you! (ITS A NO NO)!!
Remember: Happy You = Happy Life !
I am defiantly going to learn to love myself more because I believe that learning to love yourself in healthy quantities allows others to love you better, and we all deserved to be loved for who we really are!
No 2 Chase your dreams!
Create longterm dreams, work towards goals and choose tasks to work towards. Life is full of challenges, but why not create your own realistic challenges that will push you out your comfort zone, even a just wee bit and that will make your life that little bit more exciting. This will allow you to be proud of accomplishments that you make!! (It all adds to the positive vibes in us, yah?!) Don’t be afraid of failing either because that self doubt only prevents dreams from becoming a reality !!
Like right now I am studying a Masters Degree in a subject that I have very little knowledge in, (I feel a little unsure at the moment, but I know that it will all take time to be fully comfortable with the in’s and out’s of something new, and I also know and truly believe that I am more than capable of achieving, because I am sooo determined ..).. If I were to tell my 16 year old self at High School that I’d be studying a ‘Master Degree’ in Digital Marketing I would honestly just laugh at the prospects of that! But it’s the here and now, and its SOoo happening !! I am getting there and I am loving it! I am so excited about my future!
If you know what you want from life just go get it!! There is no stop in anyone doing anything they dream of doing, providing they have the motivation to proceed. 🙂
Another challenge that I am going for this year is taking part in the Muddy Race to help raise funds for Cancer Research. I not only had a drive to do this in order to raise funds for such a worthy charity, but I also wanted to give myself a taster for a sporting event like this! Its an experience, its a challenge and it will be good fun!
Also just to note, when you achieve these dreams and challenges, be proud of your your accomplishments.
No 3 Be Grateful
Being grateful and respectful for the little thing in life shows an abundance of gratitude and respect and helps you to appreciate the blessings that life gives us. At the beginning of 2018 I started a gratitude jar. I having been writing good things that happen to me; Surprise gifts, accomplished goals, the beauty of nature, “LOL moments” (a lot of these) , memories worth saving and daily blessings. I have tried to find at least one positive to write on paper and pop in the jar everyday.. I know that it can sometimes be hard to find a positive if you have had a bad day, but try to put a positive spin on bad experiences that you encounter.
No 4 Act of kindness on a daily basis
Okay so most of us heard about the Random act of kindness day on 17th of Feb right? Why have just one random day of being kind? Why not try and be kind to someone everyday. ITS FREE! We should have the courage and the desire to be kind to people always. Never feel ashamed to show compassion towards people, a simple kind turn could make someones day 100x better and lift their spirits. At the end of the day we don’t always know the battles that people are facing on their own, so a simple smile could could cheer someone up 🙂 While being kind and lifting others up, we are also lifting our own spirits up and being kind to ourselves as well ! 🙂
No 5 Surround yourself around lovers, not haters.
Surround yourself around those that love you and that remind you that you are just ultra Fabulousssss ! We don’t need to be around people who pull the fabulousness out of us..its toxic! Just don’t let anyone rain on your parade or dull your sparkle. If you’ve got that sparkle, let that sparkle shine, brightly! 🙂 I have spent far too much of my time around people who have underestimated me and my capabilities, who have been jealous of me (for whatever reason), and who think its okay to make me feel small. “Ahh, It’s not a good look hun” ! So remove any negative energy from your life… its for the best.
Life is too short! Every minute of our lives that we give to someone is extremely precious, so block out the haters they are so NOT worth your time or energy in this life!!
Here is a birthday card I got from ma home dawg, Taylor! #RealFriend .. Whenever I am in a state of self doubt she is always there to remind me that I am fabulous. #Thesepeoplearerareblessings
You will know who YOUR people are because they will be the ones reaching out to you and showing you that they REALLY care about you. Don’t push these blessings away..
All of the times that I worried over my haters I ended up just wasting valuable time that I could have been spending with those that actually love and care about me.
It mays also be refreshing to make new friends too..
No 6 Create Adventure
Find peace in your self and live your life to the fullest. Create new enriching experiences. Perhaps try some new foods or visit new places. This year I have some new adventures up my sleeve that I am so excited about and I cannot wait to share them with you along the way.. I want to go to new places and try new foods and be with people that love me, and just live my life really ! YOLO!
First Adventure of the year: Officially the most excited person on the planet! Hev, (my bestest) only went and got me ferry vouchers for my birthday so I can get over to her beautiful little Isle of Lewis . This will be an adventure in its self ! So excited! Stroll on April! 🙂
No 7 Be at peace with yourself: relax
Do things that allow you to relax. Its important that we have some ‘me time‘ from time to time. Relaxing is something I really struggle to do. I feel like I always have to be doing something. It isn’t for the want of trying to relax, I think I just need to teach myself. (ughh) My strategy to relax is mainly listening to music…
This is my February playlist which I am really digging at the moment.. its keeping me going.
No 8 Healthy Body/ Healthy mind
Get your exercise oan ! I go swimming at least twice a week to relax and keep fit. Find a sport that you enjoy and that keeps you moving aboot ! You will be amazed how refreshed your mind and body feels after exercising. Set goals to make it more engaging. Setting goals that you can work towards will help towards the step in loving yourself.
No 9 Be the change you want to see in your self.
At the end of the day only you can make any changes that you want to see in yourself . Just believe in yourself and this will make life a happy place to be in for both yourself and for the people around you. I believe in you, because your fabulous ! 😉
No 10 Stop overthinking and worrying.
I am totally guilty of overthinking, overanalysing and just overall worrying about most things, and its only because I really care. I know there is no point in overthinking but I understand that it can often be difficult to control thoughts, worries and emotions, especially if your an anxious person. This is where step no 7 would be useful to follow. Learn to take a step back and relax. This will open your mind to certain situations and help you see a different perspective. Worrying and overthinking really doesn’t get us anywhere, it just puts us in our unhappy place. 😦 So think positively lovelies! 🙂
Remember things may take time, but every step towards being positive makes you fabulous!
