How do you choose to be grateful?
I am trying to keep my stress level down to a minimum. On days like today that’s a lot easier said than done. Work was crazy busy and home has been less than quiet and comfortable. I am struggling to stay positive when I am feeling so secluded in a small town with only one friend. Bright side, at least I know someone! 😃 So to take my mind off of things that I can’t control, I am focusing on something beautiful, even if it’s fleeting. These flowers grow outside the building I work in. They cheerily greet me as I arrive and then whisper a soft goodbye when I go. Today may not be a super awesome day but I am grateful for small things like this when the rest of the world doesn’t make sense. 😍 I refuse to let my circumstances determine my mood or lend credence to my self worth.
For those of you who are struggling with finding the positive in everyday, I understand. I used to be just like you. I struggled with depression and constantly being tired and unmotivated. I wish I had someone to point out all the wonderful things in the world to focus on when I was drowning. To help pull me out of the mud. Because sometimes it just takes someone else to validate your feelings and then point out the small things to be able to look around and see all the wonder in the world to be grateful for.
I still struggle with motivation but I am getting better. Everyday there is something to be joyful and thankful for. So today, I am choosing beauty and peace and joy. 😍 #dreamitlikeaboss
