hope you are well and if not, I am praying for you. I just thought I’d write about whats going on with me, which isn’t much but thought I’d share.
I feel like I’ve been singing the same song on this blog about how life isn’t going the way I want it to go for several months now, and I know it is tired but I think I ought to share what I want when I want right. After all, it is what I am going through and I can’t come on here and be pretentious.
But, I was just feeling down and thinking about how I wish things were a bit brighter in my life and I suddenly remembered this quote, “bloom where you are planted.” I don’t remember what book I read it from, but it has been a long time since I heard the quote so it was quite random when it popped into my head.
I think my heart was just trying to remind me that, I may not be where I want to be, and things may not be going the I want it to be going, but I have the ability and CHOICE to flourish where I am now at this stage in my life. I can STILL feel joy in the midst of my disappointments. So I am challenging myself and anyone who is reading this that maybe feeling down or feeling as if all is wrong in their life, to complete these goals noted below with me this month. Seven days have already passed so, it’s not going to be long.
- I will smile more
- I will create something
- I will listen to music that uplifts the spirit
- I buy my favorite meal or something I’ve been wanting
- I will give a 100% at everything I do
- I will be patient with myself and others
- I will not dwell in my disappointments and failures
- I will give myself ONLY an hour to feel sad or down
- I will celebrate my success not matter how minor they seem
- I will CHOOSE JOY
ten things may seem like a lot but I am aiming high!! Let me know if you are going to attempt these goals with me. My email address is in the contact section on the menu bar. I will love to hear from you.
much love, SAA
