Hi beauties! Hope you had a fab weekend. I wanted to chat about something that is a constant uphill battle for me, but I’m slowly figuring out how to master it so I think I’m ready to share with you all what I’ve learned so far. Everyday there’s something that we worry or stress about. Something that keeps us up at night, but girl you have to learn to let it go. I’m the kind of person who thinks entirely too much and often times I let my thoughts get the best of me. Are you the same way? If so, keep reading for my top five key steps to living a carefree life and stop stressing for the better.
Cut yourself some slack – I don’t think we do this as much as we should, but I know that when we don’t cut ourselves slack we end up being the worst version of ourselves. You know your worth, now it’s time to add the tax. Every ended friendship or relationship is not your fault. It is not your job to tell someone how much you’re worth. If they don’t see it, then it’s time to move on. That goes for friendships, relationships, bosses…anyone. Cut yourself some slack and keep it moving.
Do more of what makes you happy – Whether that be yoga, hanging out with friends or reading a good book, do it. You were not put on this Earth to please everyone you meet. You were not put on this Earth to stop your life just because it doesn’t fit a certain standard. Go out and live your life to the fullest, doing things that make you smile. We only get one life, so make it count girl!
Don’t be complacent – You know the feeling when you’re stuck doing the same routine over and over again? Yeah..not healthy! Don’t allow yourself to be okay with how your life is. If you don’t like the way things are going then change it. When we keep things the same, we tend to not grow. Nurture your dreams, water your thoughts. Keep moving towards the better version of yourself and you’ll never feel complacent. Also, when you’re doing this then it becomes even more easy to live the life you want, and not care about the results.
Don’t apologize for how you feel – I realized that I was the type of person who apologized for everything, even when I wasn’t in the wrong. Apologizing when it’s not needed makes us overthink even the littlest of situations. If something makes you upset or sad, then you deserve to feel that way. You deserve to express yourself freely without an apology follow-up. Don’t be sorry for that.
Stop trying so hard – Don’t try to fit in. Don’t try to be that girl on Instagram that seems like she has it all together. Instead focus on being YOU. You’ll attract more to yourself when you start living for you and not for those around you. You’ll attract more genuine people in your life when your heart is pure, and you know exactly who you are. Stop trying, and start doing!
