Turned My Days Into Better Days

christian confidential | christian thompsonIt’s been a while since I’ve shared something really personal on my blog, so bare with me on this post. For the last little while, I’ve been struggling with the direction my life has been going in. I’ve had some pretty rough days that only a few of my close friends have witnessed. It’s like every time I take 1 step forward, I’m pushed 5 steps backwards. I’m a gemini so I know that I feel things a lot deeper than most people, I always say that my high’s are the highest and my low’s are the lowest – no lie! I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching, trying to figure out where these negative feelings stem from and how to correct them. I’m convinced that the universe is trying to send me a message that for some reason isn’t clear to me or that I subconsciously don’t want to hear. Either way, my patience is definitely being tested… which is also something I’m trying to work on.

The reason why I’ve decided to share a little bit about what I’ve been going through is solely because I feel like someone else might be going through something similar! I know how difficult it can be to go through things and if I can help someone feel less alone by sharing my personal journey, I’m more than happy to. I feel like every one is put on this earth with a purpose at hand. I’ve always felt that my purpose in some way was to experience things and share it with the world. There’s actually even a quote that I heard when I was a kid that stuck with me “Knowing everything won’t do you any good, unless you use it to put beauty into this world”.  Although I’m currently in the middle of figuring out my own situation, I do have a few things that I’d suggest to anyone feeling down to try out.

1. As difficult as it may be you have to try and stay positive. Positivity attracts positivity, so even if it’s small things in your life that are going well, use those to lift yourself out of your funk. 2. Take as much time to yourself as you need. It’s important to acknowledge what you’re feeling and to figure out why it is that you feel that way. 3. Remember, this too shall pass! It’s so important to remember that nothing last forever and in time, everything gets better! It’s probably not the first time you’ve felt this way and probably won’t be the last. It’s merely growing pains and this life lesson will make the next chapter of your life feel that much better!

Seasonal Blues

seasonal blues| lifestyle postHey guys, I hope that you’re doing well. Is it just me or is this cold weather getting to anyone else? I tend to usually find the brighter side of every situation but these last few weeks have been rough and I couldn’t figure out why. In general, life has been great; personal, professional, love life (non existent) lol but all in all I can’t complain.  So what’s been bothering me? Sigh… the weather, the cold! Born and raised in Canada and I still can’t embrace the cold temperatures, the abundance of snow (it’s coming) and the lack of sunlight that we have to endure. I can very easily want to stay in bed all day, lose motivation & start making bad decisions… eating wise that is! seasonal blues| lifestyle postThat being said, I’m not one to stay down for long so I’ve slowly but surely started to get back on track. I’ve gone back to making my ‘5 things I’m thankful for’ list in the morning, making sure that I go to the gym (group classes help when you’re lacking motivation) , eating clean, and  adding some colour into my wardrobe. Actually, what do you guys think about my mustard yellow sweatshirt? I’m obsessed with it and it’s not black, white or grey! Anyways, I just thought I’d share, incase any of you are going ‘through it’ and weren’t sure why. I’ll be back this week with some travel content, so come back soon and have the best day!
