Tonight, however, I decided to do something a little different. Rather than remain in a place of sadness...I got proactive and was determined to end today on a positive note. So I said a prayer, I perused my match.com prospects...NOTHING to see there unfortunately (a post for another day), I did some online shopping and then most importantly I told myself five things that I thought made me pretty great. Up until now, I've had no idea how unkind I've been to myself with the things that I say to me and the impact that has had on my positivity/negativity balance. But I'm realising that a healthy, positive mindset has to start with me.
The phrase "talk to yourself like someone you love" has never been truer. So today my five things were as follows:
- I have beautiful eyes...I love the shape!
- I am compassionate and I care...a lot.
- I can sing (and not just in the shower).
- I have a HUGE bum...that looks great in jeans ;-)
- I am open to change.
Today could have ended like any other bad day, but I made a conscious choice to let positivity win. Life doesn't always go our way...but you have to keep pushing through to happy ever after...or something like that.
