A Silver Lining.


I am happy. Happier than I have ever been! But lately, i’ve been having trouble. I find myself going to a dark place from time to time. It lurks up when I least expect it, and suddenly I find myself sitting alone, sad and not knowing why. I'm broken.
I didn’t use to be like this. I was truly happy. I was never seen without a smile, and I looked for the positive in every situation.
Sometimes life is hard, it knocks us down and it leaves bruises. Sometimes we just need a reminder to love ourselves. To remember back to our childhood’s with the world laid out in front of us knowing we could take it all on and come out perfect on the other side unscathed, unbruised and undeniably happy.

Well, I have a plan. An idea to help us all remember to love ourselves and find the strength to forgive ourselves for our mistakes.

Tune in tomorrow, and don't forget to bring your smile.

I've been known to slip into the dark side now and then too... so I am quite interested in what's to come tomorrow...

So sorry you've felt broken :(
Just know you are so very loved...

It happens. We all hit a rough patch but its how we deal, move on and grow from those rough patches that make us stronger.

I'm sorry you felt so down. I think it totally normal though. And it just forces us to look at all the great stuff we have in our life. Hope you're having a better Tuesday!

Yay, I'm so glad you visited my blog so that I could find yours! I love the positivity you exude despite the "dark place" you sometimes find yourself in (I'm going through the exact same thing right now, so it's nice to read suggestions of how to pull myself out of it!). Cheers to you girlie!
