What’s up bosses and boss chics! I hope ya’ll haven’t been laying me out too bad for my lack of posts, I do apologize! Since I’ve moved I have been trying to get everything situated just how I want it. And until that was done there was no room for me to focus on the blog at all. You know how you get something and you’re not satisfied until it’s exactly the way you want it? That’s how I was about my apartment. I needed everything in order before I could even begin to think about anything else. There are still a few kinks that need to be straightened out, but other than that I think it’s safe to say I’m settled in!
On another note it’s #PositiveMonday again and while I don’t have a specific thing to focus on, I have so much to be thankful for. Lately I had been secretly weeding out my garden, making lists of habits I want to break, you know general things that could improve my well being. I’ve been focusing on making my life as stress free as possible. I’ve been trying to stay on top of bills more and pay them as they come rather than waiting close to the due date. I’ve also cut back majorly on unnecessary spending and shopping. I want to be able to save as much as I can for the future.
In addition to handling my finances better, I’ve also started doing things (as well as stopped) for me and no one else. I was sitting at home deep in thought the other day and it hit me how happy I have been lately. Not just the surface happy, but I’m happy with who I am, what I have, where I am, and the people in my life. Now of course nothing is all peaches and cream for me, trust me I get my daily dose of bs just like the next, but I have really been trying not to let negativity burrow down in my soul. So far it’s been working.
I really think the key to success in life is balance. Without it there’s no way you can manage to live a happy life. You have to balance work, family, friends, love, in addition to making time for yourself. This is the first time I’ve really been happy with everyone around me. I haven’t had to question anyone’s intentions or character. I’ve tightened my circle to the point where I’m not talking to anyone I don’t fool with like that. You should never be desperate enough to talk to or befriend people you have to question.
Lastly I think the main reason that I have been so happy lately is because I have been living for me. You know people will always have their opinion and they will give it whether requested or not. Well I think I have FINALLY matured enough in life where I can take peoples’ opinions, consider them, and still make a decision based on what I want… not based on what other people think is best. I’m not saying all the choices I make are right, but if there are consequences they are there because at one point I did something I wanted. I’d hate to suffer consequences for living the way someone else suggested.
Life is already complicated enough, we need to figure out how to beat life’s stresses and find inner peace. It’s all about who you surround yourself with, how you handle issues, and how you prepare for issues in the future. What are you doing to make your life easier in the long run?? Hit us up with comments and have a #PositiveMonday!!
