Today’s daily prompt is: Toot Your Horn
Most of us are excellent at being self-deprecating, and are not so good at the opposite. Tell us your favorite thing about yourself.
It’s all about tooting my horn today. Why not?! Hear me out.
We all doubt ourselves. We all blame ourselves for every situation that go wrong. We underestimate ourselves so much till we are wise enough to know that sometimes all you need to survive the battles of life is a little bit of self-love. It’s still not an easy process. Sometimes, to survive the long endless nights all you need is yourself and no one else. After all those many many years of beating myself up for every little thing that went wrong, it’s now time to give myself a break and show some self-appreciation.
Because of my tendency to look at the bright side and be optimistic, I have survived and lived through even the most difficult situations . Even in the challenging times, I like to be hopeful and positive which essentially helps me to focus my energy on the good things. When life hasn’t been easy and everyone keep overwhelming me with what they think I should do, my positivity has been immensely uplifting for me to keep my head high and keep trying. Dwelling on negativity drains your energy and diminishes your hopes. I believe being able to manifest positive thoughts can make a big difference in one’s life.
I don’t mean to sound like I’m a tough cookie. I am not a tough person, I am quite the opposite. A sad movie ending would easily get me teary eyed. Frankly though, Being positive about things help me survive tough situations in life. Otherwise, all the heartbreaks in life, every painful, miserable experience I have ever had would have made me such a different person by now and that person would be filled with so much hatred. But I faced those situations with a little positivity and it helped me pass those exhausting phases in life.
So my favourite thing about myself is my ability to look at the bright side without letting the world get the best of me. Even when things are bit too rough, I am still able to smile and get on with life thanks to myself without losing my compassion.
Lastly, from what I have learned, here’s little piece of advice. Look at how far you’ve come in life. Go back in time and count how many long endless nights you’ve survived. Remind yourself of the most painful encounters with people in the past, the moments you thought would kill you instantly, did they? No. Remind yourself of how awesome you are; everyday. Because here you are; alive and stronger than ever. You’ve made progress in so many ways. And I hope you are able to find more than one thing that you love about yourself because believe me, you will.
