Hi Team Flyer!!
Stuck in a rut there?
Need a picker upper? Come on, sweetie, put on those dancing shoes or just those sneakers, let´s hit the beat and follow along!
Cure number one: take up a new hobby
Anything, from scuba diving to tennis, to writing to learning a new skill. Anything works actually. Imagine every day coming home from work and turning on the tv, ha, who are we kidding, the computer and checking out the latest news and then just hopping into bed without any other social interaction? Boring and yes, that routine will get to you at some point.
Go out and check the scene. Look online or your local youth center for activities to do. It´s a bit scary to meet new people and to you know, socialize… after being caged in for such a long time. You never who you would meet and find out? It´s all on your court. And hey, once you taken the first step, you have people who will encourage you to keep going!
Cure number two: FOLLOW YOUR PASSION!
We´ve talked about this in the past honey, follow that passion. That thing that has you hooked for hours, that activity that you are so concentrated that everything else becomes secondary… THAT! Right there! That is what you need to be doing! It is all about things you enjoy doing in life, it could be walking the dog, it could be training, it could be gardening, it could be painting or just playing some Xbox games, if that what makes your world happier, follow it. Something can come from that, either financial or not, it is all beneficial. Why? Simply because are dedicating time for you and your passion, something that excites you. And for last, follow it and if it looses its charm, find another thing that excites you and so on.
Cure number three: Figure what you DO want.
Stick to the positive side of things. You can also do a list of what you don´t want and cross them out but mainly remember that positive words bring positive vibes. Whether because when you write and read ¨I WANT this¨ it makes you smile or just because that´s the way life works. Attract what you want. Attract all the cool things that are in your mind. Why leave them just in your mind? Come on, write them out, tell your friends, search for them online, do a vision board, post it on the fridge… anything! As soon as you figure out that list of things, vocalize it in some way. Let people know, your friends are your supporters and will cheer you on.
Take your time with this one, however, start with anything. The first step is knowing and from then on it´s easy to get there.
Cure number four: Create your own party!
Yes, that´s possible. Create it! So, there you are wanting to be one more of an event or just wanting to be invited for the next social gathering… Make it happen on your own. The first thing people love to see is confidence. Make it like you have everything going on too. For example, when you talk to one of your co-workers, tell them that ¨a few of us are going out to catch a drink¨ and then go up to another a few others and say the same. It´s pretty easy when you think about it. Another way you can go for it is to simple create a party, a get-together,a night out, a game night or just as simple as catching some drinks. Get people together from all your social groups and that´s it. It´s easier when you have people around you that already bring the confident side in you, all you have to do is the rest.
Cure number five: Take that leap!
Come on, a risk, take it. Move away, ask that person out, quit that job, go to that audition, publish that book, go to therapy, travel, anything you can think of, anything you have been wanting to do or just anything that pops along the way, take it! We are meant to take risks, no matter the age. Life with fear is a shell, life with courage is everything. It´s that eye opener and that way to let yourself shine. And remember, if you fall down, pick yourself back up, pat yourself on your back and at least you tried. Whether you try again or not, you still have a cool story to tell. (instead of ¨hey,when I was your age,all I did was binge watch tv shows and sleep)
Let me know your own cures. And best of all, stay tuned for part two coming out next week!
Spread the love and share this all over,
The Always Believer
