Inspirational lyrics to help when a relationship breaks up

If you are going through break up right now, I want you to stay strong, but the days you feel like crap, know that it is ok not to be ok. Express whatever emotions comes your way, but before you go to bed each night, think of something positive, or listen to or read the lyrics of inspirational songs.

Years, ago when my relationship broke down, one of the things which helped me  to pick myself up, was singing and meditating to the lyrics of songs, even at times with tears in my eyes when the hurt seemed too much. I Hope these will help you too and that one day you too will be able to sing this song by Destiny’s Child.

Now that you’re out of my life, I’m so much better
You thought that I’d be weak without you, but I’m stronger
You thought that I’d be broke without you, but I’m richer
You thought that I’d be sad without you, I laugh harder
Thought I wouldn’t grow without you, now I’m wiser
Thought that I’d be helpless without you, but I’m smarter
You thought that I’d be stressed without you, but I’m chillin’
You thought I wouldn’t sell without you, sold nine million
 
Thought I couldn’t breathe without you, I’m inhaling
You thought I couldn’t see without you, perfect vision
You thought I couldn’t last without you, but I’m lastin’
You thought that I would die without you, but I’m livin’
Thought that I would fail without you, but I’m on top
Thought it would be over by now, but it won’t stop
Thought that I would self destruct, but I’m still here
Even in my years to come, I’m still gon’ be here
After of all of the darkness and sadness
Soon comes happiness
If I surround my self with positive things
I’ll gain prosperity

Learn to encourage yourself

When we are faced with disappointments or setbacks, it is easy to feel down and discouraged this is ok as it is all part of our life’s experiences.  We need to develop a positive attitude and mindset  which tells us that bad situations won’t last forever.

Try not to rely on others to encourage you, instead, develop simple ways to encourage yourself like having an encouragement box.

Encouragement box – read the contents when you feel a bit down to lift your spirits and get back some good vibes.

When someone gives you a compliment write  it down and put it in your box

When someone sends you a thank you card put it in your box

When someone sends you an encouraging message or text write it down and put in your box

Write down all you have accomplished in life and put it in your box

Remeber the purpose of your encouragement box is to fill it with things to encourage either yourself or someone else when they are feeling down.

I hope you are encouraged to start this new day with a positive attitude and if you need help do message me.

 

 

 

 

 

Always be hopeful and never give up

If, like me you are in a temporary state of feeling hopeless, why not just take a few moments to just breathe and  answer these questionss which I found very useful to help me focus.
I read it from this blog https://goo.gl/j3HPTk

When you’re feeling hopeless, ask yourself:

1. “How important is this to my life overall? Does it really make everything else worthless?”

2. “What can I control?”

3. “What makes me feel worse? Should I do something other than play the same game on my phone because it’s taking me down a dark road?”

4. “Who am I blaming for this situation? Does it help or am I avoiding a truth?”

5. “What stories am I telling myself?” Say them out loud or write them on paper. Hunt for the hyperbole in your thoughts and cross it out. It’s likely not that bad.

6. “Have I looked for opportunity? How could I do that?” (Here’s one way to spot opportunity.)

7. “What could I do that would make me feel steadier?” (A few ideas: jogging, baking, getting a haircut.)

 

When you’re feeling hopeless, try some of these things

  • Make a list of interesting things you haven’t tried yet. Maybe you want to try one now.
  • Have a good cry. It will release toxins and elevate mood, among other things.
  • Indulge in your go-to comfort activity (reading, a favorite movie, jigsaw puzzles) and focus on the now.
  • Don’t try to fix what’s making you hopeless right away.
  • Find some inspiration in the world. Artwork. The horizon. Store windows. (This primer on inspiration might help.)
  • Try not to fully isolate yourself. Being in the company of others can remind you that all is not lost.
  • . Get up and move. Physical activity releases endorphins that make us feel better.

 

Ways to create a better life

Don’t write yourself off – everyone’s timing is different

Sometimes in life it can be very discourgaging when you look at friends who you went to school with achieving so much in their lives and seem to beliving thier dream out , whilst you just feel all you do is struggle to make ends meet.

Now in my fabulous fifties, I wish I knew a lot of the stuff  I know now about life and perhaps things would have turned out differently,  but I guess this is just how my life is mean to be. Age is simply just a number, when it comes to your own personal success age doesn’t matter. When you go after what you are passionate about, what fulfils your life success doesn’t come straight away it takes a lot of action and patients to get there.

Over the last few years, I have achived so much as I am doing what I love and inspiring and encouraging others to maximise their potential and be the best versions of themselves.  I feel I have such a wealth of knowledge through my life exeperinces and reading about other people’s jouneryand nothing excites me more than when i mentor and help others find hope and passion for life.

I came across this video which is  less than 5 minutes long, and though to share it with you.  I hope it will encourage you to look up and continue to do what you need to, so that you can achieve your goals

Remeber if you need help with this, just email me  genny@confidentqueen.co.uk for my free consultation.

Don’t suffer in silence

How are you feeling today?

Whatever you are going through don’t bottle it all in. It’s ok to talk to the right people who will not judge you and are interested in your wellbeing. Never feel ashamed, embarrassed or guilty if things have got too much. You are not alone. Talk, ask for help, don’t keep quiet.

Wherever you are in the world I hope their are organisations like the samaritans here in the uk who can help. I used them at a time in my life when i felt  depressed and did not want to talk to my family and friends. I found the samaritans very helpful and non judgemental.
