Have you ever sat and thought to yourself, “there is no way I can make it through this?” I am sure that everyone has at one point or another. It’s funny though, because even though that is the only thing running through our heads… we always make it out.
Some things give me anxiety, random things. Rachel can’t make a phone call to make a doctors appointment because she gets too much anxiety from the thought of calling, if you ask her why, she will just tell you “I don’t know”. Sometimes we can’t explain the reasons about the way that we feel; we just know that is exactly how we feel. On top of that, some days are more emotional than others. There are some days that I can’t listen to certain songs because they remind me of Grandma and I just burst into tears. But some days I can visit her grave with a smile on my face. Emotions are healthy and feeling your emotions to their FULL extent is also healthy, but letting your emotions get the best of you is NOT healthy.
Today I have a challenge for you. I want to you to be aware of the emotions you are feeling and actually FEEL them. When you are happy, jump around in circles and give people compliments. When you are sad, just down and cry. When you are anxious, take deep breaths and get to the bottom of why you are feeling anxious. When you are mad, scream into a pillow. You can’t ruin a good today because of a bad yesterday. Today is a new day to prove to the world that you are worth it, because you are.
You should be thankful of the difficult moments you have in your life because you don’t know it, but they are making you stronger. Once you learn to conquer your mind, the world opens up. Only YOU are in charge of your emotions. Not your significant other, not your parents, not your best friend, not your enemy, but YOU. When you let others get to you and start controlling your mood, you are letting them control YOU, not only your mood. Complaining, whining, and sitting around will NOT get you anywhere. You need to get out and start your life right now. Only you are responsible for how your life turns out. Make a setback a comeback and push on.
What can you do today that will change your life tomorrow? Whatever it is, make sure it happens. Remember: if nothing changes, nothing changes. You need to make an effort to have positive energy in your life.
