I did not want to stop blogging but I just did not have it in me. I felt quite blank. I am taking positive baby steps to try & pick myself up. I sometimes wonder what makes some people different , we are all different. Some people can just get on with things & cope with life. With DD I am trying to move forward even though situation is not the most normal. Lots of ruminating comes into it, & lots of questions like could I have dealt with the ups & downs better. But there are always going to be ifs, buts & whys. I know we are a good family & that was not enough. But now we/I have to dust ourselves off & make the best of the situation the way it is. I have to stop beating myself up . I am not a perfectionist but sometimes its hard getting your headround things.
In a bid to start being more positive ( like a little therapy for myself!). I have been reading about affirmations. I made myself some positive affirmation cards. The idea is that you say them aloud to yourself say ie each morning. You have to say it with passion & conviction!(like you beleive what you are saying, you can say it to yourself in the mirror if you like). I picked some things like
- I allow myself to feel happiness & joy for no reason at all. Simply because I deserve it
- Every day I eat healthier & healthier
- I always take time to exercise
- I ask for help. I tell life what I want & then allow it to happen
- I love to focus on the good things in my life & I love that doing this brings me more blessings
Do you doing anything like this?,or do you have any good ideas /tips?. I thought I would give it a go . Think I am being a bit cosmic this Monday! Would love to here your ideas & a warm thank you for your comments
