Today I am feeling positive and hopeful for the future, which makes today the perfect day to write a blog post! Something to look back on in negative moments.
Having just moved to a new city, not everything has gone the way I wanted it to go, however I am learning to appreciate the way things are. We are making the most out of our situation, because we know that we are making progress (even if slower than hoped) and we are on our way. Sometimes I forget to live in the moment and enjoy the here and now. When we look back at memories, sometimes we appreciate them more than we actually did at the time, because in our everyday moments, we take for granted the fact that things will not always be this way. So today I have decided to embrace everything about this day.
To feel hopeful for the future, instead of just worrying is such a freeing feeling and one not always easy for any of us to obtain. When we focus on our own lives, rather than aspiring to live other peoples, when we turn off the constant comparisons (which are in no way good for our mental health or happiness), we can start to fully appreciate our own. No one else will ever have your life, so take the time to enjoy it and all of it's wonders.
Enjoy sitting on your sofa in your pajamas watching films (if that's what you like to do, because I sure do!), enjoy the people you have around you, enjoy the quiet times alone, enjoy whatever it is that you enjoy to do, just make the most of each moment because each moment is so precious and not guaranteed. I have been learning many new lessons recently and I know that I will continue to do so, because I am a work in progress. It is encouraging for me to know that I will never stop learning and growing, even if it means learning the same thing over and over again until I finally get it. There is no deadline for perfection, it is unattainable. Don't worry if it takes you longer than somebody else to achieve a goal, just focus on how you will achieve your goals, not how somebody else achieved theirs.
