Affirmations & Reflections: Getting Out Of A Rut

Hi YOU,

I trust you are well and having a great start to the new year (2021).

Personally, my year has started very rocky because my mind hasn’t been in the right place. I have struggled with getting things done, executing ideas, being extra emotional, delaying plans, doubting myself and self-sabotaging (Shit Show). I am trying not to be too hard on myself, but that’s hard, too (you know). I kind of blame society for making us believe that we constantly need to be productive to be worthy of being alive even when you’ve set your own timelines.

In today’s post, I wanted to remind you to soar in the best way you know how even if soaring for you means waking up and making your bed or doing what is listed on your daily to-do list. Last night; I spent the evening reevaluating the content I consume to control my anxiety, create a safe mental space and prevent the feeling that I am not doing enough. My anxiety has been creeping up on me a lot lately, and this has prevented me from fully soaring and executing the plans I have for the year (note to self —> RELAX life is not a race).

This morning I read a post written by Nikki Banas, it affirmed me and made me want to get up and rid myself of the self-doubt that has been hovering over me ever since this year started. I strongly felt its intended purpose, so I thought I would share the post with you because I know I am not alone and navigating this life thing right now is not easy. I have learnt the importance of affirming content when you are someone who struggles with their mental health.

    I always feel like I constantly need to be doing something to feel like I’m being productive & making the most of time but I try to remind myself that
    1) Busyness & productivity aren’t the same thing- you can be doing a lot of things that aren’t really helping you get to where you want to be and
    2)My best is always good enough-and if my best today was only just getting out of bed, brushing my teeth & having a shower then I’ve done pretty well.

    This was a great read, so thank you for this!

    Great read, Cwai! So relatable and I think a lot of people have such moments where they feel a little deflated.. like you’re not doing enough or that things are not moving forward fast enough for u. I also go through this sometimes and it’s so important to affirm ourselves and surround ourselves with positive people who’ll also remind us of who we are and what we’re destined for.. Everything is aligning, that’s what I know for sure❤️
