I consider myself a pretty positive person.

That said, this week’s been tough emotionally. I noticed a lot of what was coming out of my mouth was complaining/blaming, and for a while, I planted myself firmly in victim-mode. Things felt hard and overwhelming even though I knew ‘this too shall pass’. I needed to continually flip my thoughts and work mightily on my mindset. Yesterday, I had to make amends to someone for my behaviour. On another day, I gave myself a ‘mental health time-out’ and worked from bed under my duvet. However – practicing what I preach – I did remember to go easy on myself recognizing that I am human and don’t have to be perfect all the time.

And I know I’m not alone – almost everyone I spoke to was also dealing with their own set of challenges.

This week was just another opportunity for growth – and for that we can be grateful knowing that everything happens for us, not to us.

They say the Universe only gives us what we can handle. Apparently it thinks we’re all a bunch of badasses.
