1. Care less about what others think.
I’ve spent a ton of time trying to figure out what people think of me. Does it really matter? Stop assuming people think the worst of you, stop making life decisions based on what others think. Be you and follow your heart.
Also, stop comparing yourself to everyone else. You see people’s highlight reels on Instagram and Facebook. That ain’t real stuff. You know that, right? They don’t post the pictures of their credit card bills, their tear-stained faces after a bad day, or their tragedies. Please remember that. Comparison is the thief of joy.
You get up everyday. You’re trying. That in and of itself is amazing. Clap for yourself for every little achievement you do. I’ve been doing that lately and have felt like I have accomplished the world (even if I just went to the post office and did my laundry. Haha).
3. Take care of yourself.
In the words of Tom Haverford and Donna Meagle, TREAT YO SELF. Allow some time for
you to take care of yourself. Take a longer shower. Paint your nails. Do
a body scrub. Spend some time meditating about your life and goals. Write down your worries and thoughts. Decompress.
Yes, you deserve it!
4. Feel your feelings.
feelings, and then I’m able to have a much better day.
5. Get in the mindset.
6. Take a deep breath.
I want you to be happy—truly and authentically. It starts with you and your mind.
