When nobody else
celebrates you, learn
to celebrate yourself.
When nobody else
compliments you, then
It’s not up to other people
to keep you encouraged.
It’s up to you.
come from the inside.
There are those times when we all feel the need for some encouragement.
And at those dark times in our life, we need to have a back up plan to help us with whatever it is that we are going through.
Other people will fail us.
They are just not always going to be there for us.
And if we think they will – we are experiencing disillusion.
Of coarse there are those people who are good intentioned, who have our backs most of the time.
But there are times when we really, really feel like we need someone, and they are busy somewhere else.
They are busy with their own life, following their own dreams.
Doing their own thing, with someone else, somewhere else.
So at those dark times, if we have a “plan B” to engage us, we will be in a lot better place.
What can we possibly do to implement an alternative plan to help us and encourage us in these times of need?
The best thing to do is to plan ahead.
By now, we should be aware that these dark times will come.
They are a part of our reality, just like the bright sunny days are.
Because that is real life.
And in this real life
we all have contrast so that we can define our choices
and have new experiences and events in our life.
Things we ordinarily wouldn’t evoke without the differentiation of life throwing it in our face.
But there it is – and we have to decide what we are going to do with it.
We could curl up and hide in our warm bed all day.
Or we could have a few things lined up to help us feel good enough to get up, and then take the next step.
We could try:
- Listening to some music.
- Taking a nice warm shower or bath.
- Getting something to eat.
- Reading a good book.
- Having a cup of coffee.
- Calling a friend.
- Going for a walk.
- Taking prescribed medications.
- Taking herbal enhancements.
- Using essential oils.
And sometimes you just have to dig really deep into yourself.
Finding your reason for living.
Remembering those who love you and those that you love.
Knowing that there are ups and downs in life and knowing
what you need to do to pick yourself back up.
Being your own champion.
Learning to celebrate yourself.
Learning to compliment yourself.
And feeling full of encouragement
from the inside out.
