This week I’ve learnt not to sweat the small stuff.
I had a lot of goals I wanted to accomplish this year, however not all of them were completed. It feels like time has passed by so quickly. Disappointing feelings started to sink into my mind as I realized I hadn’t made certain goals a reality.
So what could I do to turn these negative feelings around? The worst thing to do is so allow the negative feelings to take over our minds. I accepted the fact that I hadn’t accomplished the bigger goals I had hoped to.
* Dinner last night was a simple broccoli slaw stir-fry; made with broccoli slaw, tempeh, nutritional yeast, sunflower seed butter coconut oil, cumin, zucchini and leftover millet. *
Allow yourself to feel upset and frustrated, and then work on turning those feelings around. Let go and release the negative energy. Don’t become too involved in them. Begin looking at other areas in life, and realize how much progress you’ve made in other ways.
For me, I’ve come a long way from where I was in the past and I’m proud of that. Accepting where we are in life right now and celebrating the place we are in, at this moment. The small things aren’t worth the stress, anxiety, and disappointment we can make ourselves feel. It’s a small thing and doesn’t need to take over our lives and thoughts. Don’t let negativity rule your mind.
Also make sure these are goals you do want to accomplish. Sometimes our goals change and that is not a bad thing. If you are dreading completing something, its probably not right for you. Goals should get you excited and energized! It still takes hard work to complete them, but that’s the beauty of a goal. It can be anything your heart desires. Not something you think you “should do“.
Maybe the time isn’t right for those other goals we have planned, but its never too late for those things to happen. Its important for us to accept where we are in life right now. Celebrate where we are while we are moving toward where we would like to go.
Assess our goals and allow us to accept the things we didn’t get to accomplish. It’s important to pick ourselves back up and take the next steps so we can accomplish goals that are important to us.
Its okay to not complete every goal you had intentions of completing. Just make sure to keep your head held high and realize that despite the fact not everything happened the way you thought it would, you are a fabulous and beautiful person just the way you are.
What are some of your goals?
Do you have any tricks to get yourself out of a negative funk?

Hope your having a fabulous day with your fabulous self!
