Y’all. . . life ever just shove your face in the dirt? If you said no then you’re one lucky banana. When this happens what do you do? Do you keep on trucking? Do you wallow in self pity? Tell me! I want to know. Talk to me y’all.
I will tell you what I do. I give myself a few minutes to wallow in self pity, and then I use whatever just happened as a learning experience. I pick up the pieces and move on!! It is not always easy. Everyone knows that.
One thing I do that helps me a ton FAKE IT TIL YOU MAKE IT. Do you know how useful this is? Act like you have your life together. Just pretend! Soon enough you will actually have your life kinda put together. Now I know some of you are sitting back shaking your head like “girl this nonsense is not going to work.” Trust me, it does!
A while ago I saw a lot of my friends having their -ish together, and I always got the question about how my life is going and what I am planning to do school wise, and my answer was always the same. I never knew how to get the outcome I wanted. I knew what I wanted to do, I just didn’t know how to grasp the dream. I researched and found out the steps in order to succeed, and finally reach my goal. Now whenever people ask me what my plan is I give them this elaborate plan, that I still have no idea what it means, and then they stop asking me the question. Eventually I told the plan so much, that I started to have faith in myself. I need the fake confidence of it all to give me the shove in the right direction.
Faking it til you make it works especially well for confidence. If you pretend you think you are the most gorgeous person on the planet, then honey soon enough you will start to believe it. (you are though) Be kind to yourself. In order to achieve the things you want, you have got to put positive thoughts into your life. No one like a Negative Nelly.
Be kind to yourself and to one another.
