People seem to have this misconception of me that I am some kind of hippie who’s unbelievably happy now, is always positive, and who has completely done a 360 while changing her life for the better. While some of this is true, I am still a work in progress.
You see, working on yourself has no time frame. I believe every day for the rest of my life I will always be learning something new about myself, and learning to love myself more and more and more every day. The journey never stops and you will never know everything you need to know.
That’s what life is all about – it’s all a journey.
It’s unrealistic to think that I am completely cured of old destructive habits, and it would be a lie to say that negativity still doesn’t get to me. I still have bad days, and go through my struggles.
It is hard to change the negative thought process that you have had for so long. It isn’t easy to always practice gratitude, not complain, and to always have good intentions.
It’s not an easy or quick process, but I’m here to tell you that it does work, and you can change your life. I want to promote the changes I’ve made to others, but I don’t want anyone to think I’m perfect. There will always be setbacks and mistakes, but I will learn from them.
Having a healthy, happy, positive life is completely your choice. It all has to do with your mindset. Set the intention to be positive, choose happiness, avoid negativity, look in the mirror and embrace who you are, with all your flaws.
But with that being said, this is easier said than done. Every day you must make that conscious choice to do these things, and with everyday life happening you may hit a lot of roadblocks.
So yes, I am a work in progress, I’m not perfect, and I’m certainly not where I want to be with confidence and positivity, but I know it is a lifelong process and I’m getting better everyday.
