I hope you are well.
PROCEED WITH CAUTION:-WORDY POST AHEAD!
I have not done a personal post in a minute and I just want to dive right in.
In my utmost sincererity this is not a fashion related post.Well, the pictures are there, but this is because I want to send out a message.A powerful message,I believe .That “you create your reality”.Both from the inside and the outside.
Let me break it down.You can dress up and have your face beat for the gods but if you are not “okay” on the inside,it will definitely ” come out”.I am alive to the fact that you cannot not sprinkle sugar on a concrete mixture and call it a cupcake.
Well here is the thing,I studied a pattern in my life.I realized that there is a certain time of the year I cry about the very same things, year in year out. I realised that there are certain times I don’t post,I don’t do anything productive in all the areas of my life and I simply stick to routines.Why is this happening?
Now wait a minute! In one of my torpid mornings last week it hit me,I have been making excuses all along.Iv been a weakling.I have not been “ruthless in pursuing my dreams”.I did not even want to think of it.I pulled out my diary and simply wrote in bold- “BELLA CUT OUT THE B*LLSH*T! CUT IT,JUST CUT IT!
I was blank for a moment.I’m not sure what I was feeling at this point,but whatever it was I was willing to face it.(story for another day).
Well,I finally got to write it all out.
These are some of the things I highlighted:-
1.No one owes you anything.You are on your own.
2.Anyone can change their life if they change the stories they tell themselves/others about themselves.
3.Your pain and past is meaningless to the world, let it go.
4.Its a cruel world out here,you have to toughen up! This is not a park for the meek*weak.
5.Attitude and gratitude is EVERYTHING.
6.Work smart…and hard where need be.
7.Everyone has a story.However, many have done really well for themselves.Do not go through your days against the backdrop of “my story” it gets you nowhere.
8.Be very slow to judge.You just never know the other side of the story.
9.You can only pretend for so long.The earlier you know yourself and be that THE BETTER.
10.MATURITY IS ABOUT DROPPING THE EXCUSES,PUTTING ON SOME BIG GIRL BOOTS AND GOING FOR IT.
I sincerely feel bad for anyone who has been around me during “those” times.If only I could apologize.Truth be told,it must be draining to be around anyone who is like this…However,we don’t cry over spilt milk yes? Since we don’t I decided to reconstruct! To rebuild. Before I get a perfect highlighter for my face,I’m going to make sure that the light is high on the inside,who knows, I might just not need the highlighter!(did u see what I did there?;))
Look through your patterns. What is it that you can call yourself out on? Note that! Is it procrastination? Overeating😂😂? Oversleeping? Etc write it down.
How are you going to let this go? Write it down!
Have you tracked any improvement? If yes keep on.If NO-replan and try again.
We are human.We are prone to mistakes.We are also able to rebrand and become who we ideally have to be.
So if you met me last month, I’m afraid you dont know me well,allow me to re-introduce myself.
I am Bella the coffee berry (I.N.O)-Version(2)😂😂😂.
