So I had this ahah moment during my yoga practice the other morning and I wanted to share. I’m not one who likes to be negative so I hope this doesn’t come across as complaining. I just want to be authenticate. Due to the career I am in I think it is easy for my life to come across as “picture perfect” and I don’t like that. I am a regular woman with daily struggles and hardships. I have overcome a lot of really hard trials, during those times I was super angry and hateful. Since then, I have changed and decided I want to be happy and loving, I think that is a post all in it’s self. The point is I have been having a hard week and just wanted to share how I have been pushing through. It’s a simple thing but I think often times overlooked.
A lot of things I have been investing a ton of time into have not been manifesting into anything, not only that but like declining sooo fast. It seems that all my hard work is just not good enough and it is causing me to be filled with doubt. I think this is something a lot of people can relate to. Whether it’s work, relationships, being a mom, wife, friend whatever. I think we have all at one time felt this way. Like I said I was in the middle of my Yoga meditation and I just said out loud “Jenessa, I trust you.” It sounds so cheesy and weird but seriously when I said those words this huge burden just felt lifted. I was overcome with hope and confidence in myself. I continued to say, “I know you won’t let me fail, you are a hard worker, persistent and can endure through anything. I trust that you get me through this hardship, make the right decisions and find success. You have done it before and I know you will do it again.”
I don’t think we give ourselves the pep talks we need. I get it, it’s uncomfortable to talk to yourself but sometimes hearing from somebody else doesn’t work. We need to hear it from ourselves in order to believe it. So I challenge you to try it, look in the mirror and tell yourself what you need to hear.
My situation has not changed, I am still not getting the results I have hoped for but my attitude has changed. I am not feeling sorry for myself, I am not complaining to Jordan about it. I am making other plans to fix to it. The best part is, because I have more confidence in myself I am not so consumed with my problems and asking for advice from others. I can actually listen to the struggles other people are going through and try to help them. I felt like I was so distracted by my own struggle that I couldn’t connect with others, I was too self absorbed.
What are some things you do to get out of a funk?
