I've been writing a post about how to shift your mood but today I'm not feeling it. Instead, I'm going to share what's on my mind. Hopefully, it makes sense and resonates with a few of you.
People say it's your heart that gets you into trouble but I disagree. Your heart knows what you want. It's your head that messes things up, overthinking, over-analyzing and giving other peoples opinions and agendas too much importance.
The only decisions I've ever regretted are the ones where I rationalized the fuck out of what I was going to do.
Sure I've been called crazy a few times for following my heart. But you know what? I haven't given a shit because it's felt right to me. No matter what the outcome at least those choices were 100% mine. Better to be thought of as crazy and have taken risks than to have regrets or what if's on your death bed.
It's ok to take a step back. To pause. To recenter and realign. You're allowed to change your mind. Things don't have to happen in a certain order or to someone else's timeline. Take the pressure off yourself and just focus on feeling good. Instead of exhausting yourself with hitting goal after goal.
Be kind to yourself. Be kind to your body. Don't say horrible things to or about yourself.
We are incredibly lucky to be able to wake up each morning, walk outside and feel safe. So many people do not have that privilege. Be grateful.
It's good to have beliefs that are constantly evolving and not set in stone. Imagine how boring life would be if you were so fixed in your ways that you never considered expanding your way of thinking? Be brave enough to admit that what once was true for you, no longer fits.
Things may have changed and people may no longer be in your life but that doesn't make your experiences mean any less. Real love doesn't disappear. It changes, adapts and transforms. Love is the one constant force in this world of unknowns. So choose from your heart.
