Figuring Out My Place In Time & Space: My Daily Mantra

Ever have just a REALLY bad day. A day where you mess up just a few times to many. Yeah that was me a few weeks ago. I had a "Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Really Bad Day." I wanted to get in my car and cry all the way home from work.
But as soon as I sat down in my car I said NO. You are not allowed to let this get to you. So I turned on some One Direction {judge away}, rolled my windows down and sang my heart out the entire way home. And guess what?! I felt entirely better by the time I got home {EVEN in an hour's worth of LA traffic!}.

The next day I was determined to continue my positive mood. As I walked into work that morning, I began to talk to myself about all the great things I had in my life. IT WORKED, I was genuinely happy the entire day at work and even had one of the best evenings of my life that very night.

Since then I've developed a daily mantra that I have since put on my bedroom door, so I see it was I walk out the door each morning.

My Daily Mantra

You are a good person.

Love yourself. You cannot love anyone else until you love yourself first.

Don’t be afraid to take a leap of faith. You never know what good will come of it.

Trust your gut Megan. Only you know what is best for you and what's not.

I Megan am in love with myself and would never do me wrong. Because of the decisions I have made, this is where my life is at this very moment. If you don't like it change it.

NEVER settle.

Love, laugh, travel, and live.

You only get one life.

Be the love.

I think most people, myself included, get so caught up in feeling sad/depressed, they forget to stop and look at all the good in their lives. And once they do, they realize a lot of times there's more good than bad.

*hugs* Just remember there's nothing wrong with having a good cry too! Sometimes it just helps to get all those emotions out! Then you can brush them off and be on your way!

Ah yes, I can definitely relate. Love the mantra, seems like a good idea to get in the habit of saying something like that, probably helps stop your brain from repeating the bad instead. Lots of love <3 hope everything's better.

This is delightful, Megan. Not that you had a horrible day, of course, but the outlook that came from it. I love your mantra, and that quote is so wonderful. Good for you for finding the bright side.
