What I Am Learning

grow through dirt

Hello loves, ❤

I am starting to learn what makes my soul happy.

I am starting to learn what being mentally healthy & physically healthy means.

I am starting to appreciate the things around me ❤

Please see below some of the changes I am making to my life ❤

  • I am reading more.
  • I am sleeping the right amount, my 8-9 hours a night.
  • I am drinking more water.
  • I am creating a skincare routine and an exercise routine for myself.
  • I am making a conscious decision to care about what happens to me after a lifetime of putting everyone else first and leaving myself for last.
  • I am slowly growing into the ultimate version of myself.
  • I am making an effort to be more open and honest about my feelings. I am letting the real me run loose instead of playing pretend to the public.
  • I am learning how to cope with my anger.
  • I am taking baby steps away from my sadness.
  • I am replacing negative thoughts with positive ones whenever possible.
  • I am releasing the pain from my past to make room for happiness in my future.
  • I am offering my loved ones my full attention.
  • I am not redirecting every conversation toward myself.
  • I am listening.
  • I am looking others directly in the eyes.
  • I am relearning how to communicate in an effective way.
  • I am making the right decision instead of the most comfortable decision.
  • I am following my dreams without hesitation.
  • I am allowing my passion to guide me toward my next destination.
  • I am trusting in my own abilities.
  • I am hoping for the best.
  • I am eating healthier snacks.
  • I am taking longer walks.
  • I am catching up on doctor’s appointments.
  • I am keeping my prescriptions filled.
  • I am taking care of my physical health even though I am still tempted to spend weekends lounging on the couch with canceled plans.
  • I am thinking more creatively. I am venturing outside the box.
  • I am drifting from my comfort zone.
  • I am seeing how far I can push myself, how much I can accomplish.
  • I am asking how are you and actually listening to the answers.
  • I am giving more compliments.
  • I am offering more smiles.
  • I am aiming to make the days of others easier, not more arduous.
  • I am making fewer complaints.
  • I am criticizing my reflection less.
  • I am learning to change the pieces of myself that are adjustable and appreciate the pieces I am unable to nudge.

I am trying my absolute hardest — but I am not successful in doing each of these things every single day. There are days when I slip up. Days when I cheat. Days when I feel like moving forward was only an illusion and I am staying stuck in the same place.

But none of that matters. Those bad days don’t matter. All that matters is that I continue to try, that I keep making attempts to better myself, that I never give up hope again.

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤
