Good morning everyone. I hope you are well.
By the time this post is live, I will be on a flight to Alicante, Spain with my hubby for our third anniversary getaway. I’ve been needing a break for so long.
I’ve realised something about myself – that when I start to become frustrated with little things, or I get snappy and moody for no reason, it is because I’m becoming bored of every-day life and my same, old routine. So, I need to do something or go somewhere to break that chain of repetition. The remedy: Getting out of London. See how I said London and not the UK; because you can still discover beautiful places on this little island.
Anyway, I wanted to leave you all with a little positivity of course, even though it is self-explanatory: “Don’t believe what they say. You can make it!”
And you will. Take all the negative words that you have heard over the years, and let it be the fuel for your achievements. This may be a weak example, but it could still help.
When I was in secondary school, our English classes were split into higher and lower sets. I was in the lower set, and it was the class where people mostly joked around. The highest grade anyone could get for the lower English exam was a ‘C’. I wanted to take the higher English paper. My teacher told me that I wouldn’t be able to do it, but I didn’t care. And that negative word – telling me that I couldn’t – is what made me want to do it even more. I eventually got my way, took the higher paper and got a ‘B’.
I honestly can’t even remember if I saw that teacher when I got my results, but even if he did or not tell me that “wow, he was amazed that I actually did it and passed”, I had that validation within myself, and that’s all that mattered – knowing that I could do it.
And you can too!
Have a great start to the week.
