I am the type of person who usually gets too caught up in a negative type of mindset. *I plead guilty*

โฃโฃThese are some of the phrases that I would usually say:โฃโฃ

โ˜ Why is this happening to ME??

โ˜ What a shitty day!!

โ˜ This sucks!!!โฃ

โ˜ Can this get any worse??!โฃ

What I didn't realize until recently is that while I spent ๐’š๐’†๐’‚๐’“๐’” & ๐’š๐’†๐’‚๐’“๐’” focusing on this type of mindset I was creating a shitty life.

โฃโฃSo what I've learned is, in order to live a happy life & in order to work on my mental health I have to switch off my negative mindset & focus on the good things that happen to me throughout a day.

โฃโฃOf course we are all going to have shitty days but what's important is how we deal with shitty days.โฃโฃ

We can either choose to pity us & have that shitty day that we ๐’„๐’๐’๐’—๐’Š๐’๐’„๐’† ourselves we are having.โฃโฃ

ORโฃโฃ

We can accept in that moment, that this very moment isn't how we have pictured it but at the end of the day it was still a good day ๐’“๐’†๐’Ž๐’Š๐’๐’…๐’Š๐’๐’ˆ ๐’๐’–๐’“๐’”๐’†๐’๐’—๐’†๐’” ๐’๐’‡ ๐’•๐’‰๐’† ๐’ˆ๐’๐’๐’… ๐’•๐’‰๐’Š๐’๐’ˆ๐’” that have happend to us throughout that day.โ™ฅโฃโฃ

I have been working on this for a while & what I usually do is I ask myself whether this will still bother me five years from now. If it won't, then I learned to let go of it.

โฃโฃA new method I recently learned is to take a moment at the end of the day to ๐’˜๐’“๐’Š๐’•๐’† ๐’…๐’๐’˜๐’ all the good things that have happened to me that day.โฃโฃ So that when I have a shitty day or when I feel like my mental health is shifting into the wrong direction I can just take out my notebook & remind myself of the good.โฃโฃโฃ
