5 Things I Want You To Remember

A bit of a different post today. I've had a weird couple of weeks and have kind of been feeling like a quarter life crisis has slowly taken over my life and happiness.
 With career, money and confidence issues being at the front of these worries and woes I have decided to give myself a kick up the bottom and take some of my own advice that I seem to dish out to others so easily!
So.... here are 5 things I want you ALL to remember aswell!
 Love you guys xoxo

Positivity Attracts Positivity 
Over the last few years I feel like I've turned into a right negative Nelly (booooo), something I had never ever dreamed of whilst growing up.
 I had forgotten how much this is true and seriously WORKS! If you see someone and that person is really smiley and very friendly it immediately radiates and makes you feel the same.
I truly believe being positive will only ever work in your favour - there is no point living with a negative way of thinking - it's like a magnet , negativity will bounce things away whereas positivity pulls positivity towards it :) 
Wake up, SMILE and see what comes your way!

It's Okay To Be YOU!
When you were younger did you ever agree with someone just to be liked? Pretended you didn't like something even though you LOVED it? Thought about every word coming out of your mouth before you said it 'just in case' people looked at you differently?
Did you ever feel like it wasn't okay to be you?
 Well.... Stop. 
We're never all going to have the same opinions on things, see things the same way or have the same interests  - that's what's makes us different and that is life. 
Like listening to classical music? Do it! Want to get 100 tattoos? Go for it! Don't agree with eating meat? That's fine! Want to quit your job and become a professional watcher of Disney movies? .... Just me then?
What I'm saying is, embrace who you are, your differences and live the life that makes you happy because those who matter don't mind and those that mind don't matter!

Worrying Won't Change The Outcome
This is something I have to remind myself alot. I am a huge worrier and although my aniexty isn't as bad as it used to be I still have my moments and have times where living home is the terrifying thought! I read this little quote a while ago online somewhere it is really resonated with me. 
Even if I spend all morning worrying about travelling upto London or meeting someone new at work - it's not going to change anything. Working myself up about an interview won't make it any better or any worse and panicking about things that could go wrong won't make the likelihood of them happening any more or any less
Try to relax and take life as it comes.

A Good Book Is The Best Place To Escape
I wish I spent more time reading. As a child I always tried to read as many books as I could (I lived before the internet was cool and the best thing I had was a CD Rom Encyclopedia and Solitaire) and getting the new Jacquline Wilson book was like a new shiny iPhone! 
Getting into comfortable clothes cosying up on the sofa and delving in to a story of adventure, heartbreak or even a mysterious murder..... this is one of the best ways to leave your troubles behind and just, for a while, forget everything and be somewhere else! 
Buy a new book and see. Even if you just read for 10 minutes in the morning or evening - give yourself that escaping time.

It's Never Worth Crying Over Someone Who Wouldn't Cry Over You
I learnt this a long time ago and although sometimes it's not the easiest rule to follow, it's one we must all remember.
 Alot of the time our emotions rule us and that well-known overwhelming feeling can be hard to avoid or dismiss but this really is true - it is NEVER ever worth wasting your tears over someone who wouldn't do the same for you. End of. 
Save your passion for the ones who feel for you back.

  12. A lovely post, thank you for sharing. I think as we get older it's a natural thing to get a bit more negative since we have so many responsibilities but keeping them under control can be tough.

  14. This was heart-warming to read and found me at a time when I most needed it. Thank you for this, I'm gonna try and remember these things when I'm having a bad day or in need of cheering up. I think we too often don't realise that we're even being negative and how much it's affecting ourselves and others. Again, such a great post, enjoyed reading it a lot!
    Have a great day!
