Always believe in yourself. I attended a workshop today where I was reminded by a wise person that we have everything we need already inside of us. It’s just a matter of doing the necessary work. You’ve got this.

Have you noticed that you might be feeling a bit down this week? Well, don’t worry, that’s actually totally normal due to the lack of sunlight due to shorter days, longer nights and generally grey weather that blocks out the sun. Although “Blue Monday” was a clever marketing scheme, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a real condition that effects many people during this time of year. It’s ok to feel lethargic and irritable – your body just might be craving more serotonin that your brain isn’t producing as much due to the lack of sun. If you do feel down, and notice that you typically feel down this time of year, take comfort in the fact you are not alone. Mental health professionals can help you cope with the winter through light therapy, talk therapy and other treatments. I find it helps to stay productive and try to get some movement in everyday.

As our inboxes fill with ideas about how to improve ourselves for the upcoming new decade, perhaps consider (in contrast to the last post) that you are enough just as you are. Perhaps this is the year where you don’t need to make a resolution or revamp your life. Perhaps this is the year where you celebrate you – just as you are – and trust that you have everything you need already. You are enough.

Unfortunately, it is inevitable that sometimes people say or do unfortunate things. You have no control over the actions of others, but you do have control over your own actions and reactions. As challenging as it can be, always choose kindness and compassion.

Illegitimi non carborundum

Only look back to reflect and be grateful for your adventure thus far. Don’t regret anything, every step and stumble was necessary to get you where you are today.

Admire all that you have accomplished

We all have an inner voice – make it a goal this week to set your inner voice to being your biggest cheerleader and well of support. Talk to yourself the way you would speak to someone you deeply care about.

Make sure to remind yourself that you are amazing!

You are taller than you think, a kind and wise person once said to me. Not that there is anything wrong with being short of course, but whenever I need a confidence boost I remind myself of those words. Take a deep breath and stand tall – it’s good for your psyche and your spine.

All of your struggles are simply growing pains, shaping you and making you stronger and better equipped for what lies ahead.

Keep pressing on, without struggle there is no victory.

Every now and then, challenge yourself to be vulnerable. You never know, it could be the start of an amazing relationship.

Make eye contact and make a new friend
