How To Remember The Good And Forget The Bad?

Hi. Cellophane here.

I should apologize for my last post. I was extremely aggravated with my home situation, but I will not delete it because that would be dishonest. I’m only human and I can’t hide the way I feel sometimes.

I’ve been better than that last time I was on here. The problems aren’t gone, but at least I’m still alive and physically able to change things. As I’ve said before, I have a lot of money problems.

My family is killing me slowly, but I can’t change the people in my life only my reaction to them. I’ve been trying to apply Mel Robbin’s 5-4-3-2-1 method, but sometimes I just think, “What now?”

So how do you remember the good and forget the bad?

You can’t forget the bad because it helps balance out the good. You have to embrace the bad to appreciate the good. Just like my last post, I have to embrace that those dark feelings exist within me. At the same time, I have to understand that the days that are good may be few and spread far apart, but they do come and I’ve had several over my lifetime.

Try not to get hung up on the bad vs good dichotomy of life. I’ll try to do the same and just live. Maybe coasting in the middle of these two extremes, but still living.

Thanks for reading!

How To Retrain Your Brain

Hi. Cellophane here.

I’ve been reading Mel Robbins’s book¬†The Five Second Rule¬†and it’s truly helped me take the first steps to retrain my brain. The way she describes how she was inspired to wake up every morning after seeing a rocket launch makes a lot of sense. A lot of the things we do become habits and it doesn’t matter whether they’re good or bad, they’re habits that are hard to break once they’ve become a part of our daily life.

By counting 5-4-3-2-1, you’re not letting your mind think and changing the course of your decisions and eventually your life. Over the years, I’ve let myself become a person who’s guarded and afraid of the world. I’m trying to take a chance on every opportunity that may seem impossible at first, but that may benefit me in the long run. I’m not going to think about how I feel about doing something, I’m just going to do it. It’s going to be hard, but Mel Robbins’s book is truly inspiring. It’s not a self-help book with the answers to every question known to man. It’s a book you should read if you’re tired of screwing yourself over with excuses and mental blocks that stop you from living your life.

I plan to be more positive even though the world looks grim. I will close my eyes, countdown 5-4-3-2-1 and move towards a better direction for myself and for my family.

I hope you do the same and reach your potential in whatever endeavor you find yourself in right now.

Thank you for reading!
