Man today was rough. Not a BAD day, but a "nothing going right, everything taking longer than expected, gotta laugh or you'll cry" kind of day. It was exhausting. I wanted at one point to just go home (or better yet run away to Palm Springs, haha) and just crawl back into bed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There were a few tense moments between my husband and I today, just both of us letting the stresses of the day (and frankly, the stresses of the past few days) eat away at us. But we turned it around and decided to just laugh. Once we shifted our mindset... our day shifted. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sure, things were still running late, going wrong, and not generally GREAT. But our outlook was better, so our day was better. We both were able to talk and handle it all with Grace. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Mindset really IS everything. As my friend, @rachelbrenke always says... We GET to do this. Change your outlook, change your day/week/month/year/LIFE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What are some things YOU do to shift your attitude?

Half in shadows, half in light. That's always been me. The extroverted introvert, the chameleon of every group I am in. I adapt, change to what works best for the situation and make things happen. Always the doer, the thinker, the organizer. But also the quiet one, the one who sits back from the crowd and watches, the one who quietly walks around and makes sure everyone is taken care of. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's not a mask, it's genuinely ME. On the outside, I show strength, joy and having it all together. On the inside, I have ups and downs of anxiety, self-doubt and exhaustion. But my nature is to smile. To focus on the good, the happy, to find the joy no matter what. It's not an attempt to fake a highlight reel or discount feelings/struggles. It's just how I have always approached the hard things in life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .
Pain and Difficulties exist. They will always exist. Put your head down and work through it. And when you feel like you are going to crack... help others. Because helping heals. At least it does for me. I'm the first to jump to help people and the last to ask for help. But trust me, when I truly need it, I will ask. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .
I dislike sharing this much. It's not my norm and it feels odd. I'd rather be joking. So why I am sharing all this? Because this week alone I have had multiple people tell me how I couldn't relate to their hardships because my life is so happy and easy. Yes, I show the good. But not because I want to pretend there is nothing ever wrong. I show the good because I focus on the good. I don't always tell the full story because sometimes it's not my story to tell, but I am a part of it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .
I live half in shadows and half in light. And it is my place of comfort and truth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .
