Remember when I posted about the Things You Can’t Control and the added stresses of life? Today I wanted to brighten it up and talk about some of the things you actually can control. I found that raising my self awareness and being more kind to myself has brought out an optimistic and resilient woman.
Your attitude – You’re in charge of what type of vibe/energy you put out into the world. Only you have control of your attitude. It’s up to you whether you’ll bring positivity or negativity to the table. I used to let little things affect my mood which would cause me to have a nasty attitude. Let’s be real having an attitude all the time just isn’t cute anymore.
Who you have in your life – You don’t need anyone in your life that doesn’t bring you joy. Don’t be afraid to protect your well-being. That doesn’t mean going through your contact list and texting a few people the middle finger emoji. Just be mindful of who you’re spending a majority of your time with. You are allowed to say no.
How you treat your body – Being kind to your body is essential. What you put into it matters. Fill your body with lots of love, nutrients, and exercise. I should exercise more but I’d like to think that running after my soon to be toddler is all the exercise I need for now. Not only is this good for the mind but also just good health in general.
How you think – Being in control of this is definitely better than you think. The best part about being in control of how you think is the ability to stop and reevaluate. What I mean by that is you can choose (for the most part) to dwell on a situation or find ways to get passed it. I will literally ask myself if the situation is worth getting upset over. A while ago I dropped an egg by accident and it splat all over the kitchen floor. Before I could react in an angry why I stopped and thought to myself, “girl it’s literally just an egg…there are worst things happening.” I make myself proud in those situations. Ha!
How you treat others – Be the change you want to see in this world. You can make all the difference in just 1 person’s day just by throwing a smile their way or just waving hi. I like to think that I am raising my son in a world were kindness still exists.
Are you in control of these things? What are some other things you can control? Has doing so made a change in your life? Make sure to let me know in the comments below.
