I haven't really sat down and just had a chat since I moved from my previous blog to this blog, because if I'm completely honest with you, I'm not sure how I want to present myself on this blog yet. But today I realised that that doesn't matter as much as just sitting down, writing and hopefully helping someone. DontBurstMyBubbleXx has always been about spreading positivity to try and add a little extra sunshine into the world . I tried to keep this new blog nice and ordered with plenty of structure because that's how I've been trying to arrange my life at the minute. But that's just not how my mind is, and that's not how my writing is. And because of trying to make my world fit into a nice little labelled box with a nice bow on it that screams perfect .. I've lost all of my silver linings and that , that is something I'm not okay with.
When I started writing originally, I just wanted to share my silver linings with other people in an attempt to help them. Now I need to find them again . With the stress of exams, friends, not friends, life and everything in-between I didn't even notice the positivity in my life slipping away ! When I realised the other week that I was unhappy and that this was a massive contributor. I found that finding the good things in the bad was a lot harder when you're out of practise !
So I started a little notebook where I'm writing in one good thing that happens every single day . No matter how crappy it is there's always something. I'd forgotten that . But now, I'm determined to get back to reminding myself and everyone else that yes it might be really, really REALLY crap and I'm sorry about that, honestly I am and I hope it gets better soon but I guarantee no matter what happened today, something good also happened today ! If you start a notebook like mine and write in one thing each day. Yes, It will be difficult at first. But within literally like three days, that's it ! It begins to get way easier than you think and then you can start applying the ability to look for the good in all situations to more and more aspects of your life.
I'm sorry If this has been a little ( a lot ) of me just rambling on today but I really wanted to just get this out there because I've had a bit of a metaphorical kick up the butt . I didn't know how much I needed it because I completely forgot how nice it was to see good everywhere, but I needed it and I hope it helps you out too :)
Share one good thing about today in the comments. Even if it's been a really bad day . Actually especially if it's been a really bad day... then you need it most !
I hope you're a having a lovely day wherever you're finding that loveliness ,
Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :)
Lots of Love,
P.S. Check back on Monday for a new post on happiness and getting back into a positive mindset ! :)
