Ugh this is so cheesy 😂but the guy I like it’s just so hard to get his attention .. we smoked together and chatted a bit at the party .. I mean it’s nothing but why do I expect him to talk to me in school ? I should really stop thinking about him - that won’t work . I think I’ll take it in little steps and we’ll see ... (#sad#love#depression )
It’s an art which needs practising and refining daily. If this is something you are struggling with, it may be helpful to ask yourself: what is my need to over explain about? That way we get more to the root of the struggle versus being caught up in the moment. This is not talking about not being communicative at all or using the above to shut ourselves or others down. But more on that for another post. Happy Saturday
We can spend so much energy and thinking time on how we want to be or want things to be in the future or waiting for some future event to change the course of our lives forever. Sometimes we miss what is right here right now with us and in front of us.
The question is what and who are we right now in this moment? What choices do I have? What changes could I make in the here and now, even seemingly small insignificant ones?
This can free us up in life and we can start to flow.
We all get off track from time to time and easily distracted from what is truly important. We may feel we are not on the path we want to be.
Questions can help us remove blocks which stop us being on track What are my priorities?
What blocks me from living in the present?
What am I sacrificing? And for what?
Do my goals align with what I value?
What core beliefs do I hold about what is important?
What we value is what we will put our energy into. And what we put our energy into is where we will end up.

What most people don't know about me is that I am very hard on myself. I've been through a lot. But so does everybody else. It's not about how much you've been through, it's about how you deal with it and how you let it shape you. Some people are tougher, some are not. Some are both. It really depends on the circumstances. We are not electronic devices. We are humans, with real emotions and feelings that sometimes we refuse to control. In the last few years I realised that I have been trying so hard to be perfect, and if I wasn't, I kept blaming myself and trying harder, thinking that it's what I'm suppose to do. I've always been "the fixer". I know where it comes from though. It comes from some regrets that I've been holding within myself for a very long time. And kept adding to it. I always try to do the right thing, which is a good way of living. However, sometimes you might do the wrong thing and fail so bad that it all goes downhill. Did you know that it's okay sometimes? If the intention is good, you don't have to be so hard on yourself when you make a mistake. For the longest time I didn't know how "not to care" so when I know I did something wrong, It ate me alive. Because I care too much. And this is both - blessing & a curse. • • • (Keep reading: www.elinahawk.com) 📸 by: @khaled.reese #blogger#blog#life#newpost#elinahawk#elinahawk2018#photographer#photography#lifestyleblogger#lifestyleblog#gettingreal#realtalk#psychology#lifecoach#lifestruggles#depression#letstalk#dm#regrets#lifelessons#lifejourney#hard#lettinggo#letgo#selfawareness#wellbeing
