Hello Beautiful People!
Sorry for not posting yesterday. The past few weeks have been a lot to handle emotionally lately with adjustments after the move and currently being unemployed, the stress has just been a lot to handle. But nonetheless, I have been persevering and remaining hopeful in the midst of everything! I have trying out some new tips that may be helpful in the face of a difficult situation at the moment and they have actually been helping quite a lot. A lot of life changes were just made and I needed to get out of my life funk, so I came up with some quick tips to help pull you out of any funk or situation you may be going through!
Accept Your Lemons
You know the saying “when life gives you lemons?” Well, that’s basically what I’m saying. Life gives you lemons throughout your time whether they be good or bad and sometimes you just need to accept the lemons you have been given. Let me know if I sound crazy or not. You can’t go back and change anything you have been dealt, you just have to take whatever positive energy you have to push forward towards the future. I mean something good has to be on the horizon from those lemons right?
Learn from failing
Failure is inevitable in life. No matter how hard you may try to avoid failure, you always will fail at something and that is totally OKAY! I remember being so afraid to fail in basically anything I did and it would hold me back from reaching anything great. Especially in today’s day and age, it’s hard to see anyone fail because now everyone posts about their lives being so great on their social platforms (guilty). Everyone, even those perfect influencers who seem to have everything in life together, have failures. It’s how you use those past mistakes to learn so maybe the next time you won’t fail!
Trust your process
Now this is something I have constantly had to keep telling myself, and sometimes it may sound like a broken record, but you have to trust the process. Everyone’s process in life is different. Most of my friends now have jobs at good companies and I just started working at a local boutique to make minimum wage. A lot of people I know are getting engaged or married, and I’m living with my boyfriend happily, but I’m not in any rush to get married. My point is, everyone’s life path is different and even if you are not where you would like to be, it’s where you are supposed to be at that moment! Just try your best to enjoy the journey and accept the path you are on.
You will become a stronger person overall
When things don’t go as planned, you learn to become a stronger person, mentally and emotionally! You learn to try and not allow these minor inconveniences to bother you as much anymore. The biggest takeaway is you may learn that you can’t be perfect, which again is okay! Everyone’s life goes in so many different directions, so you have to be able to adapt and change as you see fit.
No such thing as missing your boat
I read this quote and I felt it was necessary to put it into this post. There is no such thing as missing your boat. You may miss the boat everyone else is on, but you can never miss your own. Like I have been saying through this whole post, life can be funky and go in multiple different directions. Everyone has a different boat they are on and just because you miss theirs, doesn’t mean you missed the boat you are meant to be on! Wait on it and remain hopeful that your boat is coming soon.
I hope you all have a great rest of your week and if you are going through a funk, like myself, feel free to share some of your tips for beating this life funk! For those of you looking for a life update, things have been a little off here for myself and Nick, but we are remaining positive that the right opportunity for work in the city is out there for us, it’s just a matter of time until we get good news! I can’t wait to talk to you all again soon.
