Forgive Yourself for Bad Days

It’s so easy to get wrapped up in having a “bad day” that I wanted to address it. Here are some easy things to try & positive affirmations by yours truly to catch yourself and change your own mood. You’re allowed to have bad moods, but they’re not allowed to take over your entire day. For some entry clarity…

You will thank yourself later. Stop letting yourself feel flushed, rushed, and/or frustrated. Slowing down your pace will give your brain time to be more flexible to whatever is going on. And breathe, deep breaths.

Know it now: all behavior starts with your thoughts & feelings. Get down to the nitty-gritty and be honest with yourself. It can be difficult but figuring that out & letting yourself feel it will help relieve tension sooner. We may also have expectations of ourselves that may not be realistic to our current needs.

Now you know what’s up but you also need to be kind to your emotional and mental state. Remind yourself that no progress in this moment does not mean no progress ever. Do a little something that makes you thoroughly relax or genuinely happy. It starts with you and your energy. You’re in charge of how you feel and your output to the world.

Use these all interchangeably and in addition to what already works for you. Any & all feedback is welcome. Please do share if you have a positive experience from this guidance. ✌🏽

‘hey, listen to your emotions…’

Bitterness shows you where you need to heal, where you’re still holding judgements on others and yourself.

Resentment shows you where you’re living in the past and not allowing the present to be as it is.

Discomfort shows you that you need to pay attention right now to what is happening, because you’re being given the opportunity to change, to do something different than you typically do it.

Anger shows you what you’re passionate about, where your boundaries are, and what you believe needs to change about the world.

Disappointment shows you that you tried for something, that you did not give in to apathy, that you still care.

Guilt shows you that you’re still living life in other people’s expectations of what you should do.

Shame shows you that you’re internalizing other people’s beliefs about who you should be (or who you are) and that you need to reconnect with yourself.

Anxiety shows you that you need to wake up, right now, and that you need to be present, that you’re stuck in the past and living in fear of the future.

Sadness shows you the depth of your feeling, the depth of your care for others and this world.
