Without Losing

“First, accept sadness. Realize that without

losing, winning isn’t so great”


Why I’ve Been Avoiding Social Media…

-People post about their travels to this country and that country with amazing photos.

-People share their awesome trendy outfits that everybody loves.

-People share their engagement and wedding photos.

-People share with the world that they are pregnant or post pictures of their over the top baby showers.

-People share pictures of their newborn babies that God has blessed them with.

-People share the great news of them buying their first property.

The list can go on and on.

I am happy for those who have achieved these accomplishments. If I see a post from someone that’s related to a future goal of mine, I sometimes notice that I get a little discouraged. I know everything happens for a reason and on it’s own timing, but it’s still difficult at times to stay encouraged.

I believe that social media makes us lose sight of the many blessings that we already have because we see the people on social media who may be doing better than us and are where we’d wish to be in life at the moment.

Those of us who are struggling with this have to remind ourselves constantly to appreciate the blessings (even the small ones) that we have.

That may consist of saying positive affirmations to start off the morning.

Set reminders throughout the day to say a few positive motivational phrases to yourself.

Meditate for a few minutes throughout the day and think of all the things you’re grateful for.

Read self improvement books.

There’s a lot of goals that I haven’t accomplished yet and I can be impatient when it comes to the timeline of things. There’s also a lot that I’ve already accomplished that I forget about because I’m so driven to achieve my current goals.

I’m a work in process and if you’re going through the same thing, just know that you’re not alone.

Being that I’m a work in progress, I’ve decided what works for me is to limit how much I’m on social media. Even though I’m not on it that much anyway, I have to limit it even more.

I encourage myself with the quotes that I share with you on my blog site which is a big help. I also started listening to my favorite songs almost every morning to get my spirits up which definitely helps too!

Find what works for you and do those things throughout the week! Hopefully this helps! Have a great day! 😊
