Inspired by the post 8 Signs You’re Outgrowing Your Current Life, I’m targeting this post at those of you who feel you just don’t fit in your skin anymore.
I read this article in Oh Comely magazine not long back about how we grow out of ou skin every 7 years, and with each is a new phase of life. The second 7 years renews girls in particular, which is why they often crave attention, affection and love. We become little girls again.
I’m coming to the end of my second 7 years, and I can feel myself outgrowing my skin. I’m becoming proud of myself on a daily basis, and tackling the world with a happy word to say about every soul I meet.
I’ve completely disregarded negativity; and anxiety does not scare me anymore. I am confident that I will make it out on the other side, and happy to publicise my journey. One story can inspire another, one person can help another.
The second ‘sign’ Becca Martin expands on is You’re never really living in the moment; you’re always reflecting on the past, or planning for the future. TOTALLY ME.
I have my life planned to a tee, and whoever I spend it with will have to slot into the plan (in God’s timing) or it will just not work out. I’m not sure where the drive came from. Other than when I conquered my anxiety like a boss, even if it did take me 4 years to properly have full control over it. Other demons still attempt to mess with me, but I feel I’m at the stage of my life where I deal with them and other opposition maturely, and effectively.
Rather than stressing or worrying, I pray about it. And I definitely open my heart up to others more now.
So, some tips…
1. Ignore those willing to spout their mouth off about your life. If you really have to say something, tell them to focus on their own life.
2. Speak words of affirmation over yourself. Happy thoughts breed a happy life.
3. You’re important to the world.
4. You deserve the best.
5. Never let anyone or anything steal your joy.
6. The one rule of life: Treat others how you would want to be treated yourself.
Things in life, particularly the good things, love very quickly, and we easily lose control.
You have to trust in the moment and be brave enough to give control to a force other than yourself.
Be brave in the fight. It’s not easy, no on will try to say it is, but by holding on and continuing to push through, you will begin to get somewhere.
You carve your life out by the actions you carry out, the words you speak and write, and the people you ‘do life’ with.
