Positive Perspective – Make Your Life Easier

Hello all. I hope you are having a beautiful week. Today I am going to discuss how having a positive perspective on life can have a huge impact on how we feel on a daily basis.

Positivity, It’s Nothing New

On social media nowadays, we see so many posts about positivity and happiness that I sometimes wonder if we are forgetting the point. Sharing your positive vibes is wonderful, of course, however, don’t just say what you think your followers wish to hear. Make sure you really mean it, then it will be a more powerful message.

Having a positive outlook on your life is, I believe, the best way to live. Life can be really challenging, we all face hurdles and can often wonder how we are going to tackle them. If you start off by altering your perspective, switching your mindset into a more positive one, things will seem easier.

Having the Perspective of A Glass Half Full

I am sure we are all familiar with the term “glass half full or glass half empty”. To me, this says a lot about a person and the way they value their own ability.

When life knocks you back, you chose how to overcome the challenge. The likelihood is, if you see the glass as half empty, you will want to quit sooner and give up. In turn, if you start seeing the glass half full, you will be persistent, believe in yourself and keep going.

Life and the way you live it is really all about perspective. If you want to do something, you will do it. I really don’t think life is meant to be easy, we are built to be challenged and prove our own strength by how we handle things. If you make it your mission to overcome the difficulties, chances are, your perspective will naturally change.

Start Small

Start with setting small goals for yourself. Maybe it is to have three positive thoughts each day. Once you are in this habit, positivity will begin to be a more natural state of mind.

Life may not be easier by just being a positive person. However, life is short, so why waste it worrying or being negative, when you could be in love with each moment and really start living.

Lastly, I want you to remember that I believe in you. If that is the only thing you take away from this post, I will be over the moon.

Keep sharing the love, thank you for reading.

Love,

Being the Best Version of You

Be the Best
Be the Best

You are incredible. We are all capable of absolutely amazing things, if we just put our minds to it. I am going to highlight the things we can do to be the best versions of ourselves.

Start Positive Self-Talk

There is no doubt that I have mentioned the importance of positive self-talk in previous posts, simply because I swear by it. I am not one to put myself down and I continuously believe in myself. I recently realised that I see the best side of every situation and I truly believe that is the key to living a happy life.

Loving yourself and speaking words of confidence will make you feel capable. Just like putting yourself down will do the complete opposite, you will bring down your self-esteem and feel low.

Now is the Time

I know so many people who live continuously saying “I’ll start tomorrow”. However, it is usually these same people who are not finding the successes the deserve. I am not saying I have never put something off before, of course I have. However, I know that the best thing for me to do is to begin right away.

Whatever it may be, a phone call you need to make, a gym session you want to attend – just stop making excuses. At the end of the day, you are responsible for yourself and you chose when you do things. Therefore, if you want to make any sort of change, start being productive and acting immediately. The time is NOW.

Always Look Your Best

If you know me, you will know that each morning when I wake up I get ready for the day ahead. No matter what I am doing, I will always get dressed and ready. I am always so much more productive when I do. Pyjama days are not for me, I like to get on with my day.

My friends find it funny how I will put make up on even if I have no plans. But I always say “you never know who you are going to see”. If I feel like I look my best, my own confidence levels are higher and I actually get stuff done.

This may not be the same for you, I am simply expressing what works best for me. This is so important, to understand what you can do for yourself to be the best version of you. Find what works, stick to it and never forget to believe in yourself.

I hope you enjoyed the read.

Understanding your Ego

Ego
Ego

Our egos can alter the way we live our lives if we are not careful. I believe the best way around this is to fully understand yourself and your beliefs. After a conversation I had the other day, I was inspired to write about this today, as I feel we should know what an ego is.

What is an Ego?

Your ego is your self-esteem and how important you think you are. It is a basic function of the psyche, and can affect how you react to certain situations. Psychologically, it mediates between the conscious and unconscious and ultimately creates our personal identity.

If you know anything about psychology, you may have come across the Freudian terms – id, ego, and superego. These are three individual aspects of yourself and understanding them may help you balance them.

Id is basically our desires and needs. The ego is our defence mechanisms and our intellectual abilities. Finally, the superego is the part of yourself you wish to be, the perfect and idealised version of you.

Just be YOU

Another term which may sound familiar is an alter-ego. This is your second self, a kind of alternative personality. When you have an alter-ego that you listen to, you may be holding yourself back from your true capabilities.

A great example of when your ego automatically comes into play is during a workout. Our bodies are so much stronger than we think, it is our egos which hold us back. Once you feel the burn, your head tells you to slow down or stop. However, if you become aware of this, feel the burn and breathe through it, you are listening to your body rather than your ego.

I first learnt about this whilst doing yoga. Often, you are told to leave your second self outside and listen to your heart and body instead of your mind.

Stay True to Yourself

Don’t separate a second self, just be you. If you allow that little voice in the back of your head to take over, it’s likely you are not being you.

Try your hardest to start listening to your body more. Make a conscious effort for the rest of the week, before making any decisions. A good way to start is with food. Only eat when your body is hungry, rather than your mind. We eat a lot more than we should, because we aren’t listening to our bodies.

I hope you enjoyed the read. Have a great week and let me know your opinions!

Following Your Dreams & Living Them

Living your Dreams
Living your Dreams

Hello all. I hope you are having a beautiful week. Today I am going to discuss the dreams we have and how important it is for us to follow them through.

Dream BIG

Many of us have big aspirations, dreams and desires. However, how many of you actually stick to them and wait to see the results? One of the most satisfying things in life is living your dreams, seeing them come to life and enjoying every moment.

Don’t think small, there are no limits. The sky is not the limit, it is beyond. You set your own limits. If you believe you can do something with all your might, you will achieve it. This is the magic of the human mind. Determination is key, but if you are consistent, changes will happen and dreams will become reality.

Follow your Dreams & Desires

Using the power of your imagination is the first best way to gain self belief. Once you are able to do this, the creation of your wishes will become a lot easier. I have previously mentioned how much of an impact confidence has on the way we live our lives. Those with more confidence generally tend to think highly of themselves, in a non egotistical way.

You really can make your dreams come true. If there is something you have always really wanted to do, but perhaps are too afraid to try, ask yourself why. You are capable, if you believe you are.

Live for the Passion in Your Heart

Many of us have passions. I feel deep down we all know where our passions lie and in order to live them, we have to first accept them. Following a dream you have always wanted to do is likely to ignite a passionate spark in you. That feeling of fire in your belly is a great motivator, so next time you have a wish to achieve something great, believe in yourself and do it.

Everyone else will begin to believe in you, if you believe in yourself first.

Thank you for reading.
