Just laugh it off!

I’m pretty sure most of us have been through stressful times, whether minimal or extreme. And I’m pretty sure we have all been through a time where things are going really great for us and we’re really happy and some ‘one’ or some ‘people’ crap all over it and try and ruin it for us. When certain situations get us down we can change that mood in an instant! Since reading The Secret I have learned that you can have the choice to feel a certain way. YOU can choose the way you want to live your life and how you react to things. If you’re focusing on stressful situations and making yourself feel sad, then your going to constantly bring that negativity onto yourself. And if you want to feel happy it works the same way and you can change to that mood in an instant! I’m more than certain we would rather feel the latter. It is very true though. There is a lot of stress and hard times in this world but we can’t let it get to the point that we feel that there is no way out. We don’t have to feel sad about something if we don’t want to. Any situation, no matter how bad it may seem can be turned into a good one but it’s all up to YOU to turn it around.

I like to say that I’m more of a positive, open minded person these days but in the past when I’ve gone through terrible situations I have felt like it’s the end of the world, that there will be no solution and that the issue will never go away so I would keep focusing on it, bringing more misery into my life, taking things out on my loved ones and neglecting my needs. I know now that all of those feelings were unnecessary. Don’t get me wrong, of course we’re all allowed to feel sad and feel like crap at times, no day is ever perfect and we can’t expect it to be butย  we shouldn’t have to make ourselves feel that way all the time. If you want to feel happy, you can change that immediately! Put on some good music – I recommend anything you can dance to because it gets your energy up, it’s good exercise and I can guarantee it will make you feel good straight away ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s one of the things I love to do when I don’t want to focus on something that will stress me out. Go on a walk, a run, read a book or even go to your favourite place and just relax and write in a journal. Do whatever you know will put that smile on your face. There is ALWAYS something that will make you feel better. You’ve just got to find it and use it and you will turn that frown upside down!

A great thing that I’ve taken out from The Secret is to write a list ofย  ‘Secret Shifters’ down – these are things that make you feel better, things that make you laugh and feel happy. I have things included such as the beach because it’s one of my favourite places to be and somewhere I feel really calm, I have jokes between friends and I written down, my sister, my dad, things I like etc. These are all things that make me feel good. Different things you have on your list will shift your mood at different times so if you find that one of them doesn’t work, then move on to another. For example, thinking about the beach might not change my mood on one particular day but if I look at a joke between me and my friends, that is the primary thing that will make me feel better on that day. So it all depends but there is always something in that list that will lift your mood right up! So I recommend you all write a Secret Shifters list and keep it with you everywhere you go or somewhere you know you’ll always look at it.

But the most important point of all to stressful situations and to anyone who tries to bring you down is to just LAUGH IT OFF. There is nothing better than laughing about something that makes you sad. If you can’t do anything else, just laugh ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s the best medicine after all, it makes us feel GOOD and everything seems so much easier and less of a problem. Whatever is going on in your life just disappears because you’re not focusing on the bad points. When it comes to people who are trying to get in your way, piss you off and bring you down for no good reason, just think to yourself, they are only trying to put you down for something they are lacking in their own lives and to feel better about themselves. So there is no point in feeling sad about it. In the end, they’re the ones who look like fools. WHO CARES! Laugh everything offย  and the world will become a better place I can guarantee it ๐Ÿ™‚

    You are sooo gorgeous! That was such a motivating post, and it is so true. Sadly, we just tend to get so caught up in things that we forget that we can choose to feel happy and shake things off if we want you. Definitely the kind of post I needed to read tonight! I’ve been feeling pretty down in the dumps because of exams and a throat infection and all of this stress! I’ve been trying really hard though to remind myself that passing a unit isn’t the be all and end all of my life! If I fail, well I fail. I can redo the bloody subject next year. I feel like being miserable and spending all of my time worrying and studying is lesss rewarding than still ebing happy and seeing people and taking care of myself, even if it does mean that I have to repeat the unit at a later stage! I lvoe you!

    • Aww thank you so much that means such much to me beautiful girl. And you’re right, we do get caught up in things rhat stress us out and forget to relax but that’s why we always have to remind ourselves we need to make room laughter and joy. I’m glad it helped you out tonight and was what you needed ๐Ÿ™‚ that makes me happy and has put BIIIGGG smiles on my face ๐Ÿ˜€ I feel awful you are going through. tough time with studies and your health at the moment, that’s no good on anyone and I think you shouldn’t be too hard on yourself because as you said, you can always repeat the subject next year if it comes to that. You can be happy knowing you tried your hardest. But I’m sure you will be fine and everything will work out the way it’s meant to ๐Ÿ™‚ don’t forget to smile baby and the universe will take care of the rest ๐Ÿ˜‰ I LOVE YOU xoxox
