Walk it out.
Stop the conversations that do not help! I have to add an exclamation point at the end because I am screaming it from the inside. For the longest time I have been in a slump. A bad place. A negative era in my life. Why? I know why. I speak and think negative all day long. I am literally cultivating my unhappiness! Guess what else? I have been procrastinating. I can't seem to get anything done in a timely manner and then eventually, it just doesn't get done. I know that if I don't do it, it won't get done. What's happening? Have I peaked in life? Have I gone as far as I can? It feels so difficult. As if I am swimming in peanut butter. As I was walking back from getting something to eat, I thought about where I am in my life. I was not satisfied with my thoughts, how I felt and how I have wasted so much time not getting anything done. I had to start think and speaking to myself in a positive way. Affirming who I believe I should be and who I want to be and how I want my life to be. I did not have anything written down. This came from inside of me. I have said it before and I need to repeat it and believe it: There is hope deep down inside of us. Like a small ember of fire. Fan it. Blow air on it. Breathe life into it. Fire spreads with oxygen. Take the one small step and speak to yourself what you know is true about you. Deep down inside where you have not given up. Where there is still hope in you. You know that place where you still look around the corner figuratively and expect something good to happen. That small action will bring much needed relief. After you do that, make it a habit. Start today. Putting one foot in front of the other is how we walk. One step at a time is how we change. But I'm asking you to just try. You'll feel better. I promise.
