I can get so caught in things sometimes that I forget to see the bigger picture. This is something I have been actively working on and I can honestly say I've grown tremendously in this area of my life. For me, this transition has included things as small as not freaking out when I leave my overnight/makeup bag at home (this happened last weekend lol) to much bigger things like realizing that God places people in my life for a reason, and he takes people out of my life for a reason as well. And there's only so much I can control. I have become a less-stressed person because of this transition. I sleep better. I feel more at peace with my life in general. But I am still working on this and it has not been easy
If you feel like this is something you need to work on, join the party. Here's a few things I can tell you:
1.) Practice. Yes practice. practice talking yourself through situations like you would tell a friend (it's easy to be practical when it's not YOUR situation... amiright?) Tell yourself- well you have two options. Either go buy a toothbrush and borrow your roommates foundation for a few days, or drive back home and get your makeup bag. Simple. And don't let it be more than that. This is not a real issue.
2.) Find a good book to read for more complex topics. I've been reading a devotional called "Becoming the woman I want to be" and it's been eye opening as to what I really want out of life. Do your research and find a book, audiotape, something to help guide you.
3.) Find someONE to help guide you, too. Everyone needs accountability sometimes. And it can be as simple as texting a friend- hey I'm working on this and I need your help making sure I stay on track.
4.) Keep working at it even when you don't want to (like everything else in life, right?) Motivation is fleeting. Dedicate yourself.
Comment something you want to be held accountable for or DM me. Text a friend. Write it down. You got this ❤️ #lionheartedstrong
