I haven’t written a post for a while because life has been moving at the speed of light, but I felt I had to write today because I am feeling in such a positive place and I was thinking it might rub of on you (if you need/want it to!).
Where to start, I guess life has been throwing me some challenges recently which knocked me for six. This is a positive post so I’m not going to go into that right now but I will say that sometimes you have to wallow for a bit. You have to be allowed to come to terms with things in your own time before you have that conversation with yourself. You know the conversation that goes a little bit like, there are people much worse off than you, you need to pick yourself up and do what is in your power to improve. Of course some things you can’t change and the trick is to accept that but you must look at what you can change and instead of complaining, take charge and implement change. That is exactly what I have done, I realised I had to change my outlook and get my fight back. I have to say that it seems to be working, could it be the law of attraction? The belief that “like attracts like” and that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, you can bring about positive or negative results. If you had said that to me a year ago, my sceptical self would have quickly disregarded it but my attitude has definitely been altered recently and my eyes have been opened to new possibilities.
I very much try to distance myself from negativity, now more than ever and I believe that this has been a hugely significant factor. That doesn’t mean a friends that is having a hard time and is in need, I mean negativity aimed at me or towards others. I am learning to step back and perhaps gain a more balanced view. Negativity creates this big black cloud around you, blocking out any good.
When you look at the world today it’s so easy to become disheartened but I’m realising that there are still people out there that are inherently good. There really are people who will take a chance on you and give you that much needed break. I have recently been lucky enough to have had a few of those wonderful people in my life, encouraging me, giving me opportunities that I hadn’t believed were possible. I hope I am beginning to prove myself to those people, the people who approached me and believed in me. Without them I am sure my outlook would be very different so I am beyond grateful to them. They took a risk by getting me on board and have helped me to get to a place where I feel fulfilled which is something I have often longed for. I feel like I have been floating around my entire life searching for something and now I’ve found it. So my message to all of you is don’t lose hope, believe in the good and say yes. As Richard Branson said ‘if someone offers you an amazing opportunity and you’re not sure you can do it, say yes, then learn how to do it later’. We all need to believe in ourselves a bit more and cherish those people who believe in us too.
