While sipping on a fresh fruit juice at Melvin’s Juice Bar in New York’s eclectic Meat Packing District, I had the pleasure to chat with a girl in her mid 30’s who was having a pretty shitty day.
She had just broken up with her boyfriend and was complaining about her job, her friends, and how disappointing her life was at the moment.
It got me thinking about how many people I know who are battling more bad days than good days and don’t know how to break the pattern of depression. Their sadness can be so dark, that it can consume their every thought and give off nothing but negative energy.
What is a person to do when life has thrown them not just one curve ball but a handful of hits one after another? Is there hope?
HELL YES – ABSOLUTELY!! If you are in a similar boat or feeling down in the dumps then I hope this post will give you some clarity. The first step you must make before scrolling down is acknowledging that you need to change.
That means no more talking about the past and how you wish things would have worked out different or been easier.
Easy is boring and nobody learns anything from living a boring life. Did you ever think for once that perhaps all the crap you had to deal with was for a reason?
Let’s focus for a moment on decision making and choices. I believe that the more stressful you are in your daily life and unhappy you are in your own skin – the more common it is for you to make poor choices.
So, what you need to do is say goodbye to your sorrows…
and say hello to MINDFULNESS!
When you have peace, you have clarity, and when you have clarity you are able to think more clearly.
I am challenging you to be more present with your thoughts, to take time to digest, reflect, chill out and find your inner happiness. What do you want? What will make you feel successful?
I suggest you start making small adjustments in your everyday life. These little changes will increase your chances of living a fuller life and feeling better about yourself.
Maybe you need to start going to bed earlier…
Be around more supportive friends…
Eat healthier foods…
Or make a list of your dreams, desires and goals.
The more frequent you manifest and visualize what you want – the more powerful you will feel about achieving them.
Every little thought counts!
Start taking control now – I know you can do it!
