The Art of Being OKAY
There are times in our lives when we think that everything is drastically falling apart and that gives us anxiety and depression, but knowing that everything is going to be okay will change everything.
I am sure you’ve heard: “Well.. life doesn’t work like that! Sometimes many problems just come into my life and it affects my self-esteem! I can’t control that!” We might not be able to change the situation we are in but we can change how we digest and take in those situations. How we perceive our problem is within our control and it is up to us on how we react to it. Focusing on negativity will directly affect your soul and mindset. Instead of thinking “who would want to eat this food that I just made? They’re not going to like it!” Maybe tell yourselves “I know that this food has a unique taste that will expand their flavour vocabulary.” Notice how changing our perspective will slowly change your mood and soul!? And guess what? In many cases, others don’t think it as bad as you think it.
Being okay is realising that the same words that once hurt you no longer move you in such a way. Notice that when you wake up in the morning, without the word “if”s, “but”s and “however”s, there’s an inner calmness all over you and you wake up full of life and love. Being okay is such a priceless gift for us to have. This kind of psychological masterpiece takes two things: making up with the past and not obsessing over the future. Just being in the moment. It helps to be thankful with all the things in your life: the goods and the bads.
Perhaps being okay is having faith in eventual happiness. Let our future-self whisper in our ears that something amazing is going to happen. Telling us how we can accomplish our problem and see the beautiful ending in front of us. We shouldn’t waste our energy with little stuffs that might seem big in the moment. Take a step back and breathe!
Besides, remember that life is worth living. So live another day and know that everything is going to be alright.
