I’ve been working on something really amazing, and I’m excited to share it with y’all… I’ve been working on myself! More specifically, I’m working on my mindset. It’s so easy in the social media world to get caught up in other people’s lives and wish that you are where they are, wearing what they wear, and having what they have. I have been so focused on where I WANT to be versus where I AM. It finally registered in my brain when I was talking to a fellow blogger about how much stress I am under this month, and she was like “Oh wow, I mean I would have never have figured that because of your social media.” It really made me stop and think…. I totally am blessed. I have everything I could ever need. And any time I really truly want something, I normally get it… it isn’t necessarily the most expensive version, but it works and it’s mine. I’ve been really irritated that my laptop decided to die on me, leaving me working from my tablet on which some programs I need to use aren’t compatible. Okay… first world problems, I know. Now that I’ve been focusing more on my gratitude, I’ve put that irritation out of my mind. I focus on the things that I have been blessed with and keep in mind how thankful I am to have them. It’s a really powerful thing–training your mind to see the good in things versus the bad. It is something that I work hard on every single day, but every single day that I do, I am happier than I’ve ever been.
