Life, it can be a funny thing sometimes am I right?
Whether you are reading this and having a great day, not so great day, or a downright awful day I want you to do one thing right now. Go ahead and pat yourself on the back or high five yourself for making it through this week okay? Done? Let’s continue….
The purpose of today’s quote is for us to understand that consistency and persistence when bad times come is key. Whether it’s simply a stressful/low mood week for the many, or a long term mental health condition for individuals is worsening – it’s vital to look after yourself and get extra support you need. Whether that’s speaking to your GP, friend/family member, local trusted member of your community, find someone you can speak to or message if you feel uncomfortable on the phone.
We weren’t put in this world to be miserable and unhappy ( although yes sometimes it can feel like it ) but then at a singular point ( or several ) it can feel like too much, everything overwhelms you and you feet start to feel not so stable along with your mind. It’s at these times you may feel you want to give up, that the world and it’s wife wouldn’t be bothered if you were in it or not, would you even be missing out on much if you feel the way you do, why do you need to be here?!
Let me tell you YOU ARE MEANT TO BE HERE. You are here for a reason otherwise your life would have been naturally taken away so it is not your time, there is joy in store for you in the future. You, like the wave in the picture may be tired of constantly battling with life and your head, then it’s been wearing you down but not getting anywhere positive quick. Remember the story ‘ The Hare and The Tortoise ‘ slow and steady wins the race. Don’t try to rush yourself, it’s okay to make mistakes we’re only human.
But believe in yourself enough to know that you keeping going could lead to a greater time than you would have ever thought of if you don’t give up on yourself and keep trodding along even if you need to adjust things for a while to give you peace of mind, do what you need to do to be at peace within yourself and with the outer world.
Love to everyone,
