On a Positive Note

On a Positive Note

I'm sitting in bed right now feeling pretty great about life at the moment. Which is basically a complete 180 from how I was feeling just a few hours ago. I came home from work feeling ill, completely brain dead, and anxiously worrying about how I would complete the tasks that lie ahead of me this week. I have a tendency to pile expectations on myself that no reasonable person would. 

However, a conscious change in perspective has really positively impacted my mood. If you really stop for a minute and think about it, life can be pretty amazing. I've had a number of amazing things happen in my life recently including travelling and this new job that I was stressed about. But again flipping the perspective, how lucky am I to even have a job? And not any old random job, but one that is in the field I studied for almost 5 years in university and that presents me with challenging growth opportunities. I know for a fact that not everyone is lucky enough to say that.

Something else that I could easily allow to bring me down such as my perpetual singleness is also a blessing in disguise! I'm sure the lack of men in my life has a direct correlation to the lack of wrinkles on my face. 

Haha just kidding!... (not really)

My point is, when you're feeling low, take a look around you and maybe switch your perspective. I'm sure you'll find that things aren't all that bad. Losing a job might just be an opportunity to find something even better. And sometimes, hard times are opportunities for personal growth.

On a side note, I cannot end this post without mentioning how amazed I am with Fenty Beauty "STUNNA" liquid lipstick. It really is a universal red and this is coming from someone who used to hate wearing red lipstick because I thought it made me look like a crazy clown. Well look at me now!
