3 Things to Remember When You’re Feeling Defeated
We all have this picture in our minds of ourselves – this idea of who we think we are. Well I am here to tell you, it’s time to change that. Honestly, I (we) can be many things, and remembering this will help stretch our identities so it isn’t so easy to feel defeated. That way it doesn’t matter if someone thinks I didn’t do a good job – because I don’t always do a good job. I make mistakes. A lot of them and I am less than perfect. And that’s perfectly OK. It’s ok for you as well.
2. You become your thoughts.
I am a big believer in the words “change your thoughts to change your life.” Seems simple, right? Well clearly we all know that isn’t the case, but if we slowly start changing our focus – good things will start happening. If we’re always thinking about the no good terrible things going on in our lives those things will keep happening. Let’s try to only give our attention to the good. What do we really have to lose?
3. Feeling defeated or discouraged means it’s time for a change. Make it!
I decided to sit down and make a list of all the things I wasn’t happy with in life. A few of those items on my list included work, habits, the kind of Mother I was being. My life is 100% my responsibility and the same goes for you. We can’t control every situation, but we can control our perspectives of them.
A vision board is exactly what my life is missing. If you’re not sure what I am talking about, this post from Elizabeth Rider is the best! Seeing your goals visually will make a huge difference and the kick in the pants that’s needed.
