Being typically British…we moan…a lot! Conversations will contain something negative and we’ll soon find ourselves absorbed into a negative way of thinking.
“This isn’t going the way I want”,
“I deserve this”.
Life generally isn’t going the way we planned.
But whilst lost in this bitter way of thinking, life is passing us by.
We turn on the TV in the morning, instantly fed negative news stories where reporters find the most minute of things that are wrong with this world.
Yet all the great things go unpublished.
Social media feeding our minds with ideal lives we haven’t got.
But what have we got?
We can wake up each morning, whether that be to rain or sunshine, to live another day.
We may not all be travelling around the world.
We may not all be able to afford a CHANEL wardrobe.
We may not feel we possess the ideal looks everyone admires to have.
But what does everyone reading this have?
We have a life to fulfil.
Fill full of laughing until you can’t breathe.
Fill full of laying around when the sky turns from a sunset to become full of stars.
Fill full of doing rather than overthinking the ‘what ifs’ first.
Change “What can I do today” to “what can I do for someone else today?”.
Not being so quick to pass judgement when you don’t know the full story. It never truly boosts your self-confidence does it?
Sticking to what you love and not changing to conform to the majority, so wear last season’s clothes because they make you feel good about yourself.
Wear the outfit that’s a little bit ‘out-there’, which has been sitting on your private Pinterest board for months.
Try everything out of your comfort zone, because what have you really got to lose? You might decide to put it on the “Not a Fan’ list or find your newest obsession.
Whatever life we have been give, it’s important to make the most of it. Cliche, but it’s true.
