So I've noticed lately you've been feeling down and stressed out to the max. What's going on? Whatever is going on, you will get through it. Hear me out, I need you to do this for me today. I need you to just stand still and breathe. Breathe in and out and tell your self "It's okay." You can be referring to anything. It's okay to feel sad, it's okay to be overwhelmed, and it's okay to feel however you want to feel. You are the main character in your life. The real question is, "do you want to feel the way you are feeling right now?" If the answer is no, keep reading.
It feels like a little rain cloud is following you around..
Maybe one of the reasons why is because you haven't even told the rain cloud to go away.
Maybe you need to look for a little sunshine to follow you around!
So that's what you're gonna do! You're going to search for the sunshine to fill your day, and continue to find sunshine everyday. Even if it's the smallest piece of sunshine, it could make your day the smallest bit brighter!
Let me help you get started on finding a piece of sunshine!
Sunshine comes in all forms. Sunshine can be found in all sorts of places!
Remember when I said, "Hear me out, I need you to do this for me today?" Hear me out...
I want you to go over to your mirror and smile. Curl your hair, do your makeup, and put on your favorite dress. I want you to eat your favorite food today. I want you to watch your favorite show, and you can watch it for as many hours as you want! I want you to go in your car, blast your music and SING YOUR HEART OUT. I want you to take the bubbliest bubble bath ever.
Adjust this list to your liking! Create your own list of things to do! Create a list that you know will put you in a relaxing and happy state of mind.
NOW you don't have to do all those things everyday, that's a lot of work! But, finding time to do something for yourself is essential.
One really nice thing that I've done for a while now is everyday, no matter how bad my day is going, I will write down something positive that came out of the day! It can be as silly as "Today I ate a cookie. I love cookies." Even if you are having the worst day ever, having a moment to look on the bright side and find AT LEAST one positive thing that came from the day can add a tiny bit of sunshine into your day!
I am sorry you've been having a tough time and I hope I helped you, even if it was in the slightest way!
I just need you to do this for me, okay? <3
Love always, Courtney
