No matter how hopeless and hard it might seem, you CAN feel better again

When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.

– Helen Keller

Ok, so life has been hard on you? Someone hurt you? You lost someone you love? You lost everything that mattered to you? No matter what happened to you or how bad it feels, you can do something about how you feel, and that will make all the difference in what you attract from here on.

Of course it is easier to just feel sorry for yourself, complain and remain in your negative doubt – but that attitude will just keep you stuck in your misery! Improvements come when you let go of your old ways of thinking and you embrace a more hopeful way of thinking, regarding all topics.

What happened has already happened, your negative attitude about it will only prolong your pain. You can feel better, no matter how hopeless and hard it might seem. All it takes is a willingness to feel better and a choice to stop beating yourself up with that negative attitude of yours. The only one you truly hurt with your resentment is yourself, the only life you ruin with your complaining is your own.

A change in your attitude, in the thoughts you choose, about everything, will bring on a change in your emotional state. When you have achieved an improved emotional state – what you attract to yourself will improve as well. 🌹

Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.

It is ok to break down, it is ok to fall apart and it is ok to be an angry old toad sometimes πŸ™πŸ˜‚

Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.”
– Chinese Proverb

Yes, it feels really hard sometimes. There are times when everything feels wrong and everyone annoys you. But, it is not of any value to complain, point out flaws or feel sorry for yourself. Be the one who chooses to light a candle instead of cursing the darkness. At least stop voicing your complaints and start thinking about how you would like to feel next time you are in a similar situation. To prepave the situation with a better-feeling emotional response will make it more likely that you can handle the situation better next time.

But be kind to yourself. πŸ™ It is ok to break down, it is ok to fall apart and it is ok to be an angry old toad sometimes. πŸ˜‚ Allow yourself to laugh at yourself, to find humor in your negativity and let it pass through your body and mind as easily as the wind blows through the leaves. πŸ™

You are never limited by your past experiences

Enjoy who you are becoming, don’t be afraid of change – embrace it! You do not have an obligation to be the same person you were yesterday, a month ago or 10 years ago – you can continue to change, improve and become more and more of who you truly desire to be.

You do not have to be a grumpy toad just because life has been hard – you are never limited by your past experiences, see them as beneficial ground to grow from. You can become more confident, more happy and more free because of all the hard times.

So, ask yourself the important question: “Who am I wanting to become?” and start improving your thinking to match the desired vision of who you want to become.

When you feel awful and lost in despair

On days when you feel awful, when you see nothing but darkness and gloom no matter where you look – don’t look in the mirror so much. Just give yourself a break, give your mind a rest for a day, a week or as long as you need. Focus on other things that are easier to appreciate. Distract yourself as best you can and keep telling yourself that these awful feelings are temporary, you will feel better again. There is nothing you have to do – don’t try to change your negative thinking, just relax, distract and make peace with how you feel.

You are always beautiful, life is always wonderful but sometimes your own insecurity and lackful thinking will cloud your vision. What you see in yourself, in others and in everything that happens is always an accurate reflection of the thoughts you think. Relax, you will feel better again. Let yourself feel awful for a while, it is no big deal.

Everything we do, say and think builds up who we are – who are you choosing to be?

You can be the happy person you desire to be, even in the midst of a negative situation when you are surrounded by negative people. How they feel and what is happening need not affect how you feel, unless you choose to make it a part of your story.

Everything we do, say and think builds up who we are and the story we take part of. Do you want to be happy or sad? A complainer or an appreciator? A judge or a forgiver? A negative person who sees flaws in everything, or a positive person who chooses to see the good in everyone and everything?

Don’t just mindlessly follow the paths in life that others choose, don’t just look around and react to everything you see – be selective! Let your guiding star be how you want to feel and choose actions, thoughts and words that supports the happy, confident, free, positive, loving, caring and forgiving person that you truly want to be.
