Yesterday I cried. I felt like a failure.

Yesterday I cried, this is my pile of snotty tissue to prove it!

Pardon me for keeping it real this is what real life is like.

I felt like a failure, I didn’t feel like I made the right choices and I just wanted to give up.

I sat in my office with my head in my hands feeling completely defeated, I couldn’t see a way out. I thought to myself how the hell am I going to get through this!

I could feel a surge of emotion run through my body. The tears flowed and the snot followed, accompanied by whaling noises you make when you are completely in the moment. I released it all.

I encourage my clients to express and sit with whatever emotion comes up for them in our sessions. It is perfectly normal to have a down day, but I don’t often allow myself that.

Sometimes you have to #acknowledge it, give it space to #breathe, but you don’t want to live there.

How did I turn it around?

1-    I stopped doing the things that kept making me feel bad

2-   Instead of thinking about what I hadn’t done, I focused on what I did.

3-    I practised some #gratitude

4-    I did some #affirmations 

5-    I made myself an amazing turmeric latte! 

I am running a free web class next Wednesday to explore emotional #wellbeing if you have days like I just described, please along.
