I feeeeeeeel gooooooooood….la-la-la-la-la-la-la….
Whoop!!! I feel like jumping over the moon; why? Well, I’m excited about the New Year; most importantly because 2 days before the end of 2016, I got the career move I have been dreaming of for almost 3 years. 2017 started with a career field that I love, it feels good when you wake up to a job you love as opposed to when you just work because you need to earn an income. I’ll give you the story in another blog post.
Let me go straight to the article for today…
A new year usually unfolds with uncertainties as to what the year will bring in terms of the economy, finances, career, relationships, health etc. The uncertainty brings fear and insecurity to many people; this state of mind often affects their general outlook on life throughout the year. But hey, before you give yourself a heart attack; chill…breathe…relax…. learn to allow that inner child in you to dream of all things beautiful and positive that can happen this year. Remember that your perception about the things happening in your life automatically controls your output and actions. If you perceive that 2017 is going to be a difficult year, you’ll find yourself struggling to see anything positive happening around you – so why not look beyond the things happening and choose positivity – choose to feel good inside. Picture how beautiful things could become and just scream in excitement, yeah… just let it out. I mean, get excited, energise your spirit; stay motivated at all times and master the art of feeling good.
So what is the art of feeling good and how do you master it?
The art of feeling good is the conscious effort of keeping yourself in a happy mood (motivated, excited, optimistic) irrespective of the challenges posed by unforeseen circumstances.
Mastering the art of feeling good is to constantly practice being in a good mood everyday; at work even when your boss scolds you, at home when your spouse says something you don’t like, in school when other students talk negatively about you, etc. I’ve mastered this art so well that half of my friends didn’t know some of the bad things that happened to me in 2016 – all they could see was the cheerful girl who was always motivated, super active and always ready to take on the next task. I’m an example that the way you respond to adverse situations determine how well you come out of it – you either allow them make or break you. I think I prefer the former because those situations made me a stronger and more positive person. So in 2017, let’s make it a habit to stay motivated and feeeeeeeeeeeel gooooooooood.
Cheers to a super-duper-exciting 2017
