Be Mindful of Your Thoughts

Have you ever woken up and said, “Ugh! This is going to be a crappy day!”? I know people who wake up with that mentality, and I’m sure you do too. Those people probably still have a negative attitude throughout the day, and to everyone, it’s very noticeable.  

Your mindset directly influences your demeanor, your actions, and how you interact with other people. If you have a negative/pessimistic attitude, it shows. 

It also works the other way. A positive/optimistic attitude affects you and those around you in the same way. If you think that today is going to be a good day, more than likely, it will be. You’ll be more excited about what you have scheduled. You’ll be more optimistic about the day’s possibilities. Since you’ll be in a better mood, you’ll have more positive interactions with other people. 

There will be times that you’ll be frustrated or even angry, and that’s okay. It happens to everyone, even me. It’s unavoidable and unrealistic to think that you’ll always be positive. The key is that when you feel frustration or anger, you don’t dwell on it, and try to move on, however long it takes. Just trying to be positive is better than stewing in negativity. 

So you can either set your day up in a negative or positive light depending on your mentality. Choose your thoughts wisely.

Things Don’t Get Better Automatically

If you’re in a rut, I want you to know that it can get better. Your situation might get better on its own, but it’s unlikely unless some kind of intervention happens. 

It won’t get better until you (or someone else) does something to make it better. If you’re feeling lonely, you either have to reach out to someone or someone has to reach out to you. If you’re feeling burnt-out, you’ll either have to take some time for yourself or someone has to directly tell you that you need to take time for yourself. And if you’re confronted with a problem, you either need to take care of it, or someone is going to have to help you in order for it to get any better.

In most situations, you need to be proactive. It’s your life and you are always in the center of your circumstances. You are the key in making things better or worse. Make it better.
