  • T R U T H • yesterday was kind of a horrible day. It just took one major life moment to kind of flip everything upside down. • (I’m going to be very real here) But there might have been a mini melt down (a few times) that may involved a lot of crying and feeling bad for myself. Im usually good at keeping it together but this time was not one of those times. • But then someone came in and gave me some tough love. Instead of consoling me told me to suck it up and get myself together. Then asked me why I was really upset? Was it because of what happened or something materialistic being lost? And the answer was I was upset over the materialistic loss more so than what happened to me. • So that had me think, I should be counting my blessings that 1) I’m okay and 2) realize things can be replaced but I cannot. I had to stop thinking my world was crumbling down and feeling sorry for myself. I needed to just appreciate the good that came out of a bad unfortunate situation. • We all have hard days where you don’t really get much sleep because you can’t turn your brain off (I definitely had one of those nights) but you kind of need to kick yourself in the butt and keep pushing yourself forward and not let an unfortunate life moment weigh you down (even if it triggers a past bad experience) • So if you’re having a hard day, remember to try and keep your chin up and always try to smile. You got this. #chinup #yougotthis
