When nothing goes right, go left!

Lately, I feel like nothing is going perfectly well in my life. I mean, everything is fine, but there is no edge to it. It’s just fine. I have a job that is paying me well, I get to spend time with my family and friends, I eat and rest well, and that’s it! It seems like my day has been set on a loop mode, wherein I wake up-go to work-come home and laze around-eat-sleep. This is not what I want. I want to read more, I want to work-out, and I want to go out more often. I just can’t figure out how I can squeeze all of this into my already existing boring routine. But it’s alright, where there is a will, there is a way!
Also, now when I look at my reflection in the mirror, I don’t feel very happy about what I see. My face has got dull, I have gained a little weight and my hair doesn’t feel all the great. I go shopping and it breaks my heart that my regular clothes size doesn’t fit me that well now. And to top it all, it’s my birthday next week and I am not at all excited about it.
But you know, amidst all this cribbing and self-critical mode, when you are about to give up and choosing the path of sulking, someone knocks sense into you and shows you that it’s not that difficult and everything can be dealt with, yeah, that! I had one of these moments yesterday, and I can say that I am charged up to take care of this situation that has gotten a tiny bit out of hand.
I will pave my own road and it’s going to be a highway to awesomeness!

  1. Totally understand you,
    Last week I just felt so bogged down by uni work and a lack of social exposure, so many things went wrong and I felt as if everything I had done just wasn’t enough. But this week things are defenatly looking brighter, I’m keeping busy but making time for important things, waking up early (er) than usual really helps me ground my day and clear my head, set your alarm really early and watch the sun stream through the windows with a warm cup of coffee in your lap – it’s soothes the soul 🙂

    • Hey, thanks, this definitely gave me a boost and is making me believe now that everything will brighten up! I hope everything remains the same for you too!

  2. Can totally relate with you. Well that’s why I’ve taken a small break to pamper myself. Well, not all will get a privilege like that. But at times we have to be our own sunshine. No matter who is by our side, sometimes only we can make them happen.. So as you rightly said, when nothing goes right, go left!
