Hello my lovelies, long time no see. I know I know! I was missing for a hot second. But as you all know…. time to recharge is crucial sometimes. Especially after all the festivities…. after Xmas… and now the New Year. And as the 2018 is slowly but surely wrapping its claws around us…. every blog pops up with resolutions… expectations and yada yad yada. I thought to myself: ” Shall I do a blog-post about that? Is that now something, that is a Must for a blog?” After trying to make up my mind… I realized, each and every time I have made a resolution through the years… I never followed through. It is basically a recipe for disaster. And who loves disasters? I know I don’t! So while I was sitting on my desk, contemplating the choices I have made in 2017… the Ups and Downs… I decided that my main goal for 2018 would be: letting go of the negativity.
Why suffering under negativity?
Don’t get me wrong… I know that life sometimes can be unexpectedly cruel and can serve us a dish which is impossible to digest or even swallow… The negativity I am referring to is the one, which we can actually control. The problem, that I personally have or that I suffer mostly under is me being too kind… to everybody. Even when people are not good to me… or for me. Do you know that sensation of being completely drained just by the presence of a negative person?
I am sure every one of us has a friend or in worst case scenario friends like that! I have always tried to excuse them… their behavior and also their look on life…. until one sunny day I saw myself getting dragged into that pit. And believe me you… I was on that path of “self-destruction”… because I allowed it. Because I had so many friends… always assuming the worst of a situation… or the worst about a person… I felt like being in a trap myself. Suffocating and struggling with my own decisions and life choices.
The logical consequence
I reached a point… where I had to choose… being happy and successful or letting everything going down the drain.
I made my decision… Letting go of the negativity is the best feeling in the world. It demands a lot of strength though… I am not going to lie. It is not like waking up on a sunny day and you have no care in the world. One has to work on that… on feeling sane… and positive. On doing the things one likes and believes in the success of it all.
Aaaaaand somehow I have the feeling I am writing a resolution post… despite me not wanting to.
I guess my message for you guys is: you cannot expect good things to happen to you, if you surround yourself with bad stuff! Just let it go…
Have a splendid 2018
