I am honest. The past few weeks haven't been the brightest of my life. A lot of changes and conflicts made my life change and put me in a bad mood. It feels like in this digital-social- -media-blogging-world it's all about the happy feelings and the bright side of life. But I couldn't pretend that everything was alright. I am a way too honest person, that's why I had to take a break from my so called "digital life".
And that's the topic of this post. I don't want to hide these bad feelings, instead, I want to tell you, how I handle those negative feelings and uncontrollable situations that appear in every ones life once in a while. Besides the all known things like talking to a friend, be with your family, go out and distract yourself, there are some little things, which I figured out always work for me.
So here we go: The first days, I just let it all happen, I accept the situation and the bad feelings and let them all out. Not in front of my beloved ones of course, but when I am alone in my room. I cry, I feel petty for myself, I think why me, I put on all my sad and angry songs and did I mention that I cry? After that, when my ears are nearly bleeding from all these songs and my eyes can't get more puffy, I search for some inspiration and motivation. For example, I scroll through Pinterest for encouraging quotes, I read my favorite book "On the road" from Jack Kerouac, I google my women idols, all these strong women who seem to handle their lives so well and I try to find out, what they would do in my situation. And I watch movies or shows...
One of my favorites, which always cheers me up, is "Sex and the city". I love all about it, New York, the looks and the women of course! It's so refreshing to watch some "real women" in their 30's, with natural skin and hair and facial expression, a thing that you can hardly find on Instagram. That's why I also needed to get off this platform, at least on this bad time I was going through. And I love to listen to Samanthas jokes, Carries life quotes, Mirandas tough and Charlottes naive way of looking at life.
And here we get to the outfit of this post. After doing all these things mentioned before, I get up and dress up! What always work for me are some gorgeous shoes. I don't know about you, but when I wear high heels I feel like I got control over my life and I feel confident and pretty :) And if the shoes have some sparkling something, I feel extra fine. Like my own version of Carrie Bradshaw.
So basically that's it. These little things always work and make me see the silver linings, let me get back on track be positive and find back to myself again.
And to close this post with Carries words:
"Sometimes we need to stop analyzing the past, stop planning the future, stop figuring out precisely how we feel, stop deciding exactly what we want and just see what happens..." CB
