Investing In A Happy Mindset Is YOUR Choice

Mood is a frightfully flighty madam with an interchangeable, transient state that can flip, dip and switch as she pleases. Yet your mood is also a very easy little minx to coax and play around with and it doesn't take much to entice her onboard so she sings alongside your instructions. In other words, she's somewhat...easy. Such a scamp! 

Choosing what vibe you want little miss mood to play ball with puts the control back in your hands and stops you ruminating and exaggerating a helpless mindset in terms of your mood ruling y-o-u. So simply preaching out that adopting a happy and healthy mindset will revolutionise your happiness levels is all very well and easy but actually d-o-i-n-g it? 
Always the tricky bugger. 

Your mindset is your thoughts, attitudes, reactions and actions that you have towards both yourself and the world around you. For the most, you know what a healthy mindset looks like and feels like. It's living in a state of balance that is not controlled by your emotions in a harmful or detrimental manner and where your focus is set upon your dreams and desires that drive your life towards a positive future. 

A healthy mindset is the conscious awareness that the choices you make on the daily are the fuelling instruments that are needed to support a healthy self. Now by all means, a healthy mindset doesn't mean that you live like a telly tubby full of sunshine baby giggles, belches and hillside ambles - a healthy mindset is all about the balance between the good, the bad and the downright ugly but c-h-o-o-s-i-ng in the moment which thought path is going to benefit you right now and benefit your future self. 

It is the choice to see the positive opportunities that always hide amongst the bad-ass shit creeping around. 

At the end of the day you and only you can add the building blocks to your life as a 'whole'. You have to choose what it is that's important to you and govern your mindset to follow suit. You can purchase the negative nancy building blocks waving their flags at the front of the store or you can dig a little deeper and grab yourself the blocks of potential, risk, chance and end up with something that might just resemble a life you deserve. 
You've just got to stop looking, retreating and sticking your head in the ground like an ostrich simply because your dear 'friends' fear and negativity coming knocking at your door. 

*Newsflash*, they ain't your friends dah'lin. Those two little creepers are devils in disguise that may look safe, cushty and ready to wrap you in a snuggly blanket of familiarity but they'll soon rip away that disguise and leave you trapped in a negative life you're entirely unhappy with. Sounds delightful, right?

You may not realise or you may just be living in ignorant bliss but Y-O-U are the owner of your life and only you are worthy of holding the reins to steer it the way you want to live it. It's time you inch your head out from the ground and realise that you my darling girl deserve a lot more than what you believe and have settled for; you deserve a life of happiness so pick up those reins and throw yourselves forwards. 

It may be disgustingly cliche and you may well want to bitch slap me in the face for saying it how it is but the truth in it quite frankly can't be bitch slapped....you only have o-n-e life so bloody well get out there and l-i-v-e it Miss fisty pumps! 

Try dusting down your bravery boots and knock out those fun-sucking blues with a good attitude for life; for today, for tomorrow, for next week and the weeks to come.

We can choose to sit back in despair and wind ourselves up with berating insults that question why we - out of the millions on this Earth - happened to pull the short straw and gallantly skip right into one open door of crap with an unfathomable stench that continues to follow us round making life one big nasty ball of negative, miserable unpredictability. But you know what? Feeling sorry for yourself and sobbing the hell out of yours friends' shoulder isn't going to change anything apart from the clean and dry status of said shoulder. The only person who holds the rein of change is y-o-u!

Bad, questionable and tragic things happen to good people. It's a difficult truth to accept but it's a natural part of life that we can't control. Life is not something that we can manipulate and control so that only the good stuff can happen so the only aspect we can flex our power of choice to is how we react and manage what comes our way in the wave of life. The mindset you adopt - be it positive or negative - along with the decisions you make, curate your outlook on life and carve out the type of life you lead. 

Life is not meant to be perfect so quit trying to lead a perfect life full of ideals. When you choose to cut yourself some slack and embrace the good times with the bad as mechanisms for growth and knowledge and realise that life actually begins in the imperfections then you free yourself to start carving out a sparklier, more accepting you with a future full of hope and passion. Life comes with a shit load of baggage and some have to hobble over a heck of a lot more piles than others but you can't forge a future by tying yourself to the past. What happens, happens and things occur at different times for a reason even if you can't appreciate them in the moment. 

Giving yourself the permission to keeping looking forwards as opposed to dragging along the past and continually getting bogged down by negativity enables you to flow through life with an air of optimism and an untainted mindset open to the opportunities for happiness. 

Quit the pity-party and hop off the woe-is-me roller coaster as you're better than that. Irrevocably so. Your seat in life is waiting over there in the sailboat of choice....raise your head and go set sail.

You're the curator of you life and only you hold the power in changing your fortunes, your attitude and your future happiness. 

Whack on your sassy pants and go make the world your future; it's all out there waiting for you, it just needs you to see it believe it and feel it. When life throws you some shit, be sure to turn it into fertiliser.

Love, Sarah
