Firstly, woah 20th blog post!!!!!
I thought I'd make a quick post today, after a little conversation with one of my close friends I realised I'd actually pushed myself out of my comfort zone over the weekend. And I'd not really sat and acknowledged it properly to myself, that I'd done it.
Whereas, if I'd had a bad experience, it would probably be hanging over me and I'd be constantly be reminded of it.
It made me realise, that I'm often quite guilty of focusing on the bad moments and end up forgetting or letting the times where I've actually made progress be swept under and forgotten about.
This is partially a reminder for myself, as well as tip for any of you out there.
Often, I think we tend to focus on the negative aspects of things, I can honestly say that's something I'm really guilty of.
I feel as though not many of us actually genuinely praise ourselves for achievements we do, no matter how big or small they may be, or how personal they are. As Demi Lovato says in her "Staying Strong" book,
"Love yourself and treat yourself as you would treat your very best friend. You deserve the same love you give to others."
Often a little goes a long way and I know I'm going to try and recognise my achievements that little bit more and see where it takes me.
Thank you for reading this short blog post, I just felt inspired earlier to write this and I probably could have babbled on for a bit longer but felt I didn't want to go overboard with details!
I shall be writing again soon!
