I failed my challenge!!
I got to day 9 and then just forgot. I FORGOT TO COMPLIMENT MYSELF! I think it just makes me realise how I don’t give myself as much love, care and attention that I do everyone else in my life.
Basically, I love making people happy. It bring me joy to know that I’ve helped make someone’s day that little bit better, all the while, forgetting about my self.
I really struggled to say something positive everyday for 9 days… I could not find 10 compliments for myself…
this is the lesson I’ve learnt from this failed challenge…. because you always learn from “failure” or more appropriately…. difficult lessons. I’ve learnt that I need to step up and make sure I love myself. I can’t love others properly until I love myself.
Until next time…
So after over a week of positive posting, I’m realising I’m finding it difficult to keep finding something positive to say. It shouldn’t actually be that hard. I don’t have to write whole inspiring posts to be positive talk, I should simply be making sure I have something positive to say about myself.
This challenge was more for myself than any readers, to see if I could actually do it, and to inspire people to be positive about themselves also.
So today, my positive thought is, I am of value, I am useful and I am worth it. And L’Oréal products are great…….😪 sad attempt at a joke there. But L’Oréal have got it right. I am worth it! We are all worth it 😉
Sometimes I feel like I’ve run out of nice things to say to, or about myself. However, today was not a bad day. Today I accomplished some of what I wanted to. Now, some people may think this isn’t something positive, but the fact that I was awake, with no headache, not running off iced coffee, is a very good thing.
So frequently I feel exhausted at work, and I even consider quitting my job. Today I felt good.
Last night I finally went and saw my doctor and explained what had been going on. We made a plan, and even the smallest step in the right direction, has made me have one of the best days I’ve had in a very long time 👌🏻
Sometimes pushing yourself to go harder can actually wear yourself it. If realised that if I want to be happy in life with good friends and a happy family, I need to remember what I’m doing things for.
I’ve said to my netball girls before, the happier you are, and the more you’re enjoying netball, the better they will play as a team.
I feel like it’s the same with every day life. If I’m constantly forcing myself to work just because I have to, then I’m not going to be enjoying it. How can someone perform their best when they are unhappy?
I need to create happiness myself. I’m the one who controls how I feel. I’m the one who controls how I react to something. I am the one who controls me. No one else. I’m the one who can make this life a happy life to live.
I’m the one who controls me 🙂
So often I feel as though I’m not really worth second glance, or a second thought. I’m exceptionally average at everything I do.
I can do anything well, but I’m never the best. I’m okay looking, but I’m not a stunner, I can cook some things, but others I cannot master.
I’m just average…
but, as we are being positive here… I will say… I am strong. I am independent. I am worth something. I am motivated. I am unique and I am me. I am extraordinary, because I am the only one of me!
I’ve had some shocking relationships in the past. I don’t really regret any of them, because I’m grateful for the lessons I’ve learned.
Today’s positive thought, I’m so incredibly lucky to have my partner by my side. A year and a half in and I’ve never been so happy in a relationship. Even when we argue, even when he doesn’t wash his hair for months…… I love him no matter what.
This feels different to any relationship I’ve been in before. It feels solid. And for that, I’m so thankful.
So today I’m home sick again and I’m terrified of going back to work, just to be told I’ve taken too much time off.
So not really positive talk to begin wit, but you know what? I know I’m good at my job, I know I can make differences that no one else has. I’m strong. I moved interstate completely alone. I’ve taken chances to better myself and I did it all by my self. I left my home behind to work here, and like hell I’m going to give it all up now. I am strong. I will continue and I will prove myself.
If there is something you want in life, only you can claim it. People will test you, they will try to make you doubt yourself, But when you come out the other side, you will be stronger for it. You are worthy of your goals.
