This year has been quite a roller coaster with severe ups and downs. I’ve dealt with severely toxic jobs, a puppy that almost died and medical drama that has been less than fun. On the positive side, I got engaged to the love of my life, eventually got an amazing job, and have learned to really get out of a funk that plagued me earlier this year.
Being thrown so many curve balls this year has been less than easy on my mood, I’ll be honest I’ve been in a massive funk for most of it! But these daily mantras have really helped me turn around my overall mood and frankly end of my year. Changing your perspective and the dialogue you have with yourself changes your entire world.
Everyday when I wake up I think of 10 things I’m grateful for (and I cuddle my pugs just a little extra for that extra burst of happiness) and I focus on them while getting ready, this sets the tone of my day on a very positive note. When you start the day grateful for what you do have you are more open for more good things to come into your life.
After I start my day on the positive note of everything wonderful in my life, I think about what I want in my life. I decide what it is and take the action to go for it. You may never understand what the action may be but take the leap. It’s not enough to decide you want something, you need to take he’ll bent for glory action. Now I said mantras and they are key in this because boy is this step scary.
Everyday I tell myself that I deserve good things in my life. I tell myself I deserve true happiness. I tell myself I deserve good things in life and that good things are supposed to happen to me. I tell myself I am enough, I am good enough and my life is meant to be amazing. At first it can be hard to believe, at first it can feel stupid, but the more you say it, the more you do it and if you keep at it the more you will believe it. It’s amazing that when we tell ourselves something enough times it becomes our reality. Now keep in mind this works for both positive and negative statements.
What you have on repeat in your mind is what you believe the most deeply, the more positive the affirmations the more deeply seeded the positivity. The more you tell yourself you deserve good things the more you believe it and the more likely you are to go after those wonderful opportunities. Keep telling yourself you are worth it and you will believe it!
Getting out of even the toughest funk is totally possible with a little shift in perspective. What are your favorite morning habits to get your day started off on the right foot?
