Life is a roller coaster ride and you have good days, bad days and days you would rather not speak about. As a divorce lawyer you see so much of acrimony and unhappiness that it’s easy to get sucked into the vortex of joylessness. So for the past few years I have been trying to find simple ways to cheer myself through the ‘days that you wished you never got out of bed’.
Currently these are my instant pick me ups-
Gratitude: However terrible you feel in the morning start the day by expressing gratitude. It could start of by being grateful just for being alive and being given another day to enjoy your life. Sounds simple? It’s actually the hardest thing to do, but once you start, you find it gets easier. I started off by writing down at least 5 things I had to be grateful for. But just Kick start your day by experiencing gratitude, it’s the most powerful energy booster.
Hugs for Me: Give yourself a biiig hug because as I tell myself, “I am my own favorite”. This is such a big booster on days when you feel the world is against you and we have all had those days. I had mine when I had to restart my life with just around 10 dollars in my bank account as my husband and in-laws decided to kick me out of the house with nothing but my fighting spirit and dreams intact.
Be the best version of yourself: I decided long time ago to honor my creators-God, my parents and all the people who helped me along my journey-by putting my best foot forward. This could range from wearing good clothes to a perfume, even if it’s for yourself and no one is looking. In fact, I go a step further and say, especially if no one is looking.
Wear the world’s best makeup-A SMILE: It really costs nothing and they say that it takes more muscles to frown than smile-the figures vary-but who cares about the figures when the proof of the pudding is in eating it. Don’t believe me-do a simple exercise and look at yourself in the mirror while smiling and while frowning and tell me what looks better.
So you can imagine by following these simple strategies that you would be getting out wearing your best clothes, best smile and being the best version of yourself so you automatically become the Empress or Emperor of the world.
Don’t delay and Carpe Diem-Seize the Day
Till next time-Hugs and Live Life EmpressSize
