Your quality of life depends on your mindset...

Monday, April 23, 2018

For the past year and a half I have been on GO. During this time there never seemed to be a moment where I didn't have a million things on my to-do list. Of course, with a million things to-do I NEVER was able to check anything off my list because I was constantly burnt out and tired. I felt alone and constantly blamed others for why I was not where I wanted to be.

However, I came to understand that it was okay if I only had ten things on my to-do list and only completed four out of the ten. I had to realize who I was and what I was capable of because I was doing way too much and getting nowhere! I also had to realize that I can not just stop because someone will not assist me in doing something. Once I implemented these simple steps my mindset changed and so did my life.

Are y'all completing your goals or are you doing too much like I was? No matter what category you fall under keep reading because you never know what helpful gem you'll uncover.

Slow down. Breathe. BREATHE.

It is not the end of the world even if it feels like it. You are going to make mistakes and you have to realize that it is okay. Understand that making mistakes is part of life. It may feel like the world is falling apart around you but it is not. You're just being dramatic and you'll realize this later on.

Unless, of course you are in a war zone in which case I would advise you to run to the nearest shelter, go underground, or hi-jack a helicopter/jet. In all seriousness though I pray that all my readers are safe.

Continuing on...
Things that seem like they are life altering decisions or that currently have you stressed out to the max will seem trivial in a few days, months, or years. Also, this may seem crazy or impossible but it is important to take time for yourself and enjoy the little things in life. Whether you go on vacation for a week, binge watch Hulu or simply sip on your favorite red wine while reading a book make sure you have time set aside just for YOU.  Your mental health is more important than meeting your employers quota, completing that paper or anything else you can come up with. If you do not take care of yourself it will begin to show in your work. Always take time to RECHARGE and care for yourself!

  Friends.. How many of us have them?

Friends influence our thoughts and ideas about the world, people, and life. It does not even have to be friends it could be family members, coworkers and teachers just to name a few. This is a proven fact whether you agree or disagree. With that being said watch how the people around you move, what they talk about and what their goals are in life. Ditch the negative Nancy's, people who live in the past and the one's who always seem to have a problem with everything. Surround yourself with people who inspire you to improve, that are not shady and who genuinely want to see you succeed. Also, always have at least one person in your corner who you can talk to about anything!

So, we talked about having people around you that motivates, inspires and pushes you to the next level but what are you bringing to the table?  Inspire and motivates your friends and anyone that's around you. You should possess similar qualities you desire in a friend or companion. At times it may seem like there's nothing special about you but I promise there is always someone watching you and being inspired.

You are the only one who can make your dream into a reality..

STOP! Stop being mad at your friends or family because they are not doing everything for you! Stop going on social media and posting meme's slick dissing! Just stop it! I used to do this so bad but I had to check myself and get on it [I never posted a meme about anyone though...]. First and foremost this is your dream not theirs! Stop sitting around waiting for people to wait on you hand and foot because you have an IDEA.

You are the only one who can make your dream into a reality. The ONLY one. If one person does not help you are you going to throw your dream/go
al away? If you do that is the most dumbest..! DO NOT throw your dream away because of an individual just find another way. There is more than one way to skin a squirrel and you need to find it because the show must go on.
