5 things you NEED TO remember

🔸️ Rest can be/is productive 🙏. Never feel bad about taking a break. You need it to reset your body, to rest and be more productive later on, to get new ideas and be more creative.
🔸️ Asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness 🤝. Don’t work your a** off just to prove somebody you can do it by yourself, it’s not worth it. Simply ask for help when you need it and help others when they need it.
🔸️ You don’t have to have it all figured out. I’m almost 30 and I think I know what I want to do for the rest of my life yet it keeps changing every couple years and that’s fine 😅 I change my dreams whenever I find some new passion because.. :
🔸️ You’re allowed to change your mind. Whether it’s about your job, a city where you want to live and other big decisions as well as on each everyday step like saying you’re not gonna go to a party even though you RSVP’ed because you don’t feel like it 🤷‍♀️.
🔸️ You can keep as much of your private life to yourself as you want. Just because somebody else starts talking about his/her problems, his financial situation, family drama etc doesn’t mean that you have to be open about it as well 😉

Smiley Future – Step 39

Let’s continue the subject of lost motivation 🤔
I have a question for you today: do you use your support in your moments of weakness? 🧐
:::
It might seem trivial but many people find asking for help difficult 🤷🏼‍♀️. It requires us presenting our weaknesses, showing our delicate site… 😬And if you’re a resourceful, independent and well-organized person asking for help might be even harder 😶.
:::
That’s why today I want to remind you of this important aspect: you don’t have to be alone with your crisis, your weaknesess and troubles! 🤗
:::
How to reach for help?
First of all, accept it that you don’t have to manage everything well all the time 😉. Everybody has their worse moments and it’s not a reason to be ashamed, to punish yourself or self-criticize (I hope that during those worse day you remember to be good to yourself! ⚠️) Give yourself the right to be weak, treat yourself with understanding and tenderness 🙏
:::
Secondly, find in your surroundings a person who you trust, feel safe with. Tell this person what you are struggling with, that you need support, ask how he/she can help you (maybe he/she can share his/her experience, listen to you, let you spill everything out…) 😊
:::
Before you say: „There’s no such person in my surroundings” think well first ☝️. Maybe it’s not that obvious to your if you rarely ask for help and support? 🤷🏼‍♀️ But avoid those who are always critical and rigorous 👎. That attitude is the last you need right now!
:::
Talk to someone who will help you organize your feelings, your thoughts 🤯. Maybe you’ll find a source of your discouragement and find a solution during that talk? 😊
:::
Task for today – answer couple questions:
➡️ People I can count on:
➡️ If it is difficult for you to ask for help, for support think what can be a reason of that? 🤔 Maybe you have some beliefs or fears in your mind? 🤷🏼‍♀️ Write them down and try finding a counterargument to each thought 📝
