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 ❤

  1. Great post! I love the wording of “change the pieces that are adjustable” because I’ve found that a hard concept to describe to others (I just got Invisaligns and people always say “why”). It seems being aware of all the things you’re working on and listing them out will help you continue to make progress. Take care
