A Better You

21 Aug

When not so-awesome days hit us, we actually feel down and zombie-like. It’s like some bottomless pit has existed within us and it sucks all the energy and liveliness from our being. Imagine some Kronos-like creature like the one in the Percy Jackson series which pulls you into some kind of an abyss of depression like state. Okay, maybe the description is over-kill but i have actually found ways to get my butt out and be myself again.

Think of Happy thoughts.

Whatever we think about, we bring about– that i read from the book The Secret, so technically when we think of those happy thoughts they kind of lift us from our depression and moves our thoughts to happy memories or to things that stir positive emotions and create serotonin or happy hormones. Think of your family, friends or that cute boy you have a crush on, the favorite book you recently read or the silliest joke that you could remember or your friend has whipped for you. For me happy factors would include those examples plus Jeremy Renner (hopelessly in-love -so dont mind k?)

Forgive and Forget.

Let go of any unpleasant emotion that is lurking within you. Forgive those who have wronged you and forget whatever they did to you, disperse resentment,grudge & hatred those will only make you feel worse and miserable, remember, you carry those feelings and it wont make you feel any better, when we forgive we actually free ourselves from that confinement and we bring about to ourselves a brighter and better future.

Be yourself.

Be who and what you are and don’t pretend otherwise,  express yourself in a way that let’s the whole world know that you are content with your unique individuality and personality. Wear clothes that actually fit your body and make you feel good, do things that would make you feel true to yourself, dance in the rain, splash around the pool, recognize the inner kid in you and indulge yourself to your happy pleasure, nothing to be ashamed of with that.

Recognize your Goals and hope for the Best.

Keep your goals intact and never let anyone or anything hinder and influence your positivity and your determination. Sure obstacles might be hurled upon you, there could be detours you would have to take but all of these are what makes the arrival on your destination even more worthwhile. Prefer optimism,  this certainty that everything will be okay and that you’ll eventually become the person you were meant to be. Some days, it will feel like you’re so far away from accomplishing your goals and that’s okay. Goals are meant to feel far away. That’s why we work towards them!

Do & Dwell on Good Things.

Try doing things that would make you feel good about yourself.Spend less time hate-reading things on the Internet and more time reading things that will enrich your brain.Surround yourself with people who make you want to be a better person. More kind, more considerate, more productive. Pay attention. Be self-aware. Try your best to understand those around you. Through understanding others, you’ll gain a better understanding about yourself. Most importantly Avoid engaging in behavior you know will make you feel ashamed. Easy as pie, right?

Things mentioned above might not work for everyone but somehow i hope that it kind of gives you an idea as to what really matter’s. It is that no matter what happens around us, what’s important is how we react and perceive things, after all we carry ourselves and it is us who decide how we face life.
