It's time to be happy again and the power of a positive mindset

I'm finally publishing this post after months of it being in drafts. Well, I'm not saying I've been so unhappy in the last few months, because I've had my good days and made some good memories. But there have been a fair share of bad days where I've wanted to curl up in a ball in the corner and just cry.

In recent times, I haven't had the best time of it, going to Liverpool for a couple of days being my one highlight of the entire summer, plus the gorgeous weather we did have. Lots of things haven't gone the way I've wanted them to and my cat going missing has been heartbreaking and I miss her dreadfully. I've looked in the mirror in the morning, trying not to be too freaked out at the state of my disarray hair, realising this isn't the strong willed Lucy I know and have created. I needed the old me back.

Unfortunately, I am one of those people who sits back and waits for the good things to come along. I know, kind of not the best trait to personally own.

But things have seemed to click in my mind, I need to jump up off the sofa and make stuff happen instead of waiting for it to come to me. I'm trying to make a career change which isn't easy, but I'm willing to give it my all until I can get up on a Monday morning and be happy that I am going to work.

As I'm writing this post, I am starting to feel more positive about things again! I want to be the old Lucy again, the one I know and love. I need to get into that positive mindset again.

Your mind is a powerful thing. Fill it with positive thoughts, the happier and more content you will feel. However, fill it with negative thoughts, that's it - you've probably set yourself up to have a pretty bleak day.

I think this will be my main aim for the rest of 2018 - think positive when times are tough and just smile.

"There is always a reason to smile - find it"
My bestie made a joke behind the camera - I honestly can't remember what it was but it must have made me belly laugh!
One thing I used to do was every time I woke up in the morning, I thought about something that there was to look forward to over the next 24 hours. It would help me get out of bed but also it would help me start my day off with a positive mindset. I need to start doing that again, it really does work.
So here is to a happy rest of 2018!
