Omg it’s Christmas Eve Eve already! How? It seems like only the other day we started Blogmas and now we’re nearly at the end. You know what, even though I did find it annoying having to come up with a new idea to blog about each day and having to actually get off my lazy ass to write something, I think I am actually going to miss you. I know it’ll only be a few days before I start blogging again (most probably in the new year) but just think that’s NEXT YEAR!!!
Anyway for today’s blog post I wanted to give you a little tip which will help to make your life seem that little bit better. This is a great idea for when your feeling down or hopeless as every time I read mine it completely boosts my mood (which can seem like an impossibility at times). It’s also incredibly simple as all it requires is a pen and paper (or ya know the notepad of your phone).
I call it my “moments to remember” page but you can come up with a much more personal or creative name if you see fit. Basically all you do is bulletpoint little moments that made you smile. This could be anything from seeing an act of kindness to experiencing a favourite activity. As some of you may still be a bit confused I have listed some of mine below, I don’t have many but that’s fine as the list will grow as you get through life which is what makes it so magical:
- How excited the male Stuard was when you got off the plane in Hollywood (2015) and he said “that’s where he (Tom Hiddleston) sat” – October 26th 2015
- My A Level psychology teacher asking to see my dinosaur socks on Breast Cancer Awareness Day (we had to dress pink), I talked about wearing them the day before, so I had to take my boot off in the middle of a lesson – October 21st 2016
- Putting my stocking on Christmas Eve eve 2016 and checking inside (for some reason?!?) and finding a “simple pleasures” lip balm in there – December 23rd 2016
For those of you able to read dates you will discover that, that last one was made just today about 30 mins ago which is what inspired this post. These moments may not mean anything to you and you may be wondering what makes them so special. But that doesn’t matter. In your list you are going to be the only person reading them. This is fantastic as it shows that you alone have control over your mood and your life which may just give you enough confidence to accomplish what you need to that day.
I hope this little tip in some way helps you. And if it does LET ME KNOW. You know how much I love hearing your views (no matter how mad you may think they are).
