It’s been a while, not a particularly long while mainly because dragging things on unnecessarily can be more painful than the actual reality, and since then I’ve changed. I seem to say this all the time, I’ve changed, but it’s true we are always changing, it’s human nature to evolve and in my case, I’m proud to say I’ve evolved for the better.
This past week has been painful when things unexpectedly arise that can potentially be harmful or even life-threatening and you’re being kept in the dark about the circumstances, it can be very difficult to wrap your head around it. And my case was no exception. I’ve had to adjust and make some changes that have so far brought me into a better state of mind and have improved my quality of life in the little time that has passed.
I’ve spoken to multiple people about my personal issues and it’s helped, it’s comforting to know people will be there to listen even if the circumstance has as of yet remained unchanged. My mental and emotional health has improved but I’m still battling the same issue I spoke about a week or so ago. The power of thinking, the power of having a positive mindset is just so… powerful, I can’t seem to find any other way to describe it. The implications of it, the way your behaviour can change, the way that you ultimately evolve can be and is life-changing.
In terms of my own behaviours over the past week, I’ve found comfort in the little things in life, talking to friends, meeting with friends, doing certain activities together in the summertime where the sun shines so brightly and its warmth is incredibly comforting. I’ve found myself slowly letting go, and I still am letting go of the negativity I’m adamant to start a new phase in life, but for now, I’m adamant to bask in the positive feelings and the burst of energy I get when I spend quality time with friends and even to the point where I’m basking in literal sunlight on late evenings.
The gratitude I’ve experienced and felt so deeply in my heart has just filled me with immense happiness, and though I’m no stranger to this feeling I’ve more often than not stopped practising gratitude which I regret. I’m hoping this new phase will continue to bring me closer to the things that make me happy because honestly, that’s all I want to feel right now.
