{When life hands you lemons | Getting out of a rut}

Today's post is a little different. It is a little more personal and more of a pep talk to myself and for anyone else who feels this way (I know we've all been there before). I actually wrote this post about a month ago when I was feeling a little down and writing this made me feel a lot better. I thought I could share it with you guys finally today in case you needed a little pep talk also! 

Do you ever wonder why your life may not be going at the same pace as others around you? It's crazy to think about, but we are always for some reason comparing ourselves to people around us. To people we follow on Instagram, celebrities, friends, etc. it's not fair to yourself to compare your life to theirs. Everyone walks a different path and no path is a better one. I believe that everything happens for a reason, sometimes people or things come into your life at a specific time with some kind of purpose. 

I am all about changes and taking chances in life. I'll be honest I don't know what it is that I want to do with my life or where I "should be" at this point of my life. However, I do know that the things I put myself down over are overshadowed by the things I have accomplished and achieved in my life by age of 25. I found my soulmate early on and married him! So many people are still searching for that person to complete them and I am so lucky to already have that in my life. I have had amazing work experiences I can put under my belt and I have learned so many life skills a lot of people might never get a chance to learn.  

Sometimes all we do as humans is think about all the negatives in our lives. Sometimes it's hard to think about positives when your mind is only focused on the things you don't have. Your mind is such a powerful tool and as long as you can convince yourself and your brain that you are grateful for the things you have you will be a lot happier. Maybe you don't have your dream job yet, but keep applying and searching for it. Ask yourself, why should a place hire you. You will realize all the amazing things you have to say about yourself and realize how much you are capable of. Maybe someone hasn't told you that in a little while, but make sure that you personally tell yourself that. Don't let that inner sparkle get dull. We are all so different and we all have different goals in life. Maybe one person you admire has all these amazing things that you don't, but then you have to think about it. What are your goals and what are theirs? My goal right now isn't to have a luxury car and designer shoes, my goal right now is to be the best wife I can be, to figure out what our next move will be in terms of where we want to live and what's the next step for us in our marriage. 

Dont ever think that life gave you lemons. If you think that well then find a freakin' way to make the best, most sweetest lemonade ever! Do whatever it takes to get to where YOU will be happy. No one else matters, this is all about you. Happiness starts from within. So when you feel like you are in a rut, dig deep within and see what you can change in your life to make you happier and never compare yourself to someone else. You never know who is envious of your life while you're envying someone else. And always remember the only person you should be better than, is the person you were yesterday.
