I see things changing in my life. Things that were my everyday life will not be again.
I don’t deal well with change. Change scares me, it’s unsettling. I can adapt and I do adapt but sometimes it’s hard. I found this article on ways to deal with big life changes. This is the last paragraph of the article:
Big life changes may rock us for a little while, but they don’t have to be as bad as we initially perceive them. If handled in a positive manner transitional periods can pave the way for some serious self-growth, reflection and awareness.
This is what I will focus on. Life changes can be beneficial. Sometimes our lives must be changed I know mine definitely has to change.
I also found this article on how to prepare for major life changes.
I’ll try not to forget this:
People have a tendency to isolate themselves during tough times, but I always find it helps when you keep in touch with friends, family and meet other people who are going through the same situation.
It’s really important to be connected, both online and in real life. My friends with BPD are my online friends, I don’t think I know anyone in real life. I have been going against my own will and pushing myself to go out even when I don’t want to. I’ve been successful so far.
I also feel stuck, so let’s see what the internet has to tell me.
I really, really liked this article on 7 ways to get unstuck in life. This point the author makes is very important:
5. Ask yourself, “Am I ignoring an inner calling?” Oftentimes we receive guidance about our next steps but choose not to listen to our inner messages. This guidance often comes in the form of a quiet still inner voice. This voice can be easily drowned out by the noise of our everyday life, our peers, or even our own inner demons. Is there something you’ve been called to do, but haven’t done?
I’ve definitely been ignoring my inner calling I have to do something about it. At least do something online before doing anything in real life. I will tell you about it after I do it.
It was definitely good to read these articles. I think we sometimes overthink and don’t see that the way to go is to move, make decisions and change habits.
Which leads us to the question: how do you find motivation for change? This article is about 16 ways to get motivated when you’re in a slump has good suggestions. I definitely need to exercise. Two minutes a day in the first week doesn’t sound so bad. I will keep you informed about this challenge. Maybe one or two of you would like to join me. Comment down below, make a post on your blog and challenge other people to do it. Sedentary life is very harmful. I really don’t lead a healthy life and I’m afraid of the repercussions.
I’m going to start tomorrow in the afternoon a few crunches, running in the same place, stretch a little. that’s it, it’s done. I’ll probably play some music while I do it to put me in the mood and motivate me.
Why do I always find it so hard to keep a healthy habit? I sometimes feel like a quitter. Instead of wallowing in self-pity, the best thing to do is to see how long I can keep up a habit.
I can say that I have been active on WordPress, not as much as I wanted to ( which is posting twice a day. I guess that is a goal to set. post twice a day for a week and then two weeks, etc.
