Daily Prompt: Pep Talk

Looking at today’s daily prompt spurred a sense of irony for me today as I am the one who is in need of a pep talk lately. I’ve been in a miserable funk for the past few days and am in dire need to escape it. So maybe this daily prompt will break it.


To myself:

Over the past few months you have been through a ton of shit. However, you have not only managed to pick yourself but on more occasions than not you are a happy person. I am proud of the way you have progressed and grown through this difficult time. Yes, there are bad days but deep down you know life is still pretty good and you’ll make it through. Be conscious of this strength! It is something to be so proud of.

Also, I just want to remind you that HE was is not worth any more thoughts or tears. You guys had your run and you WERE happy. HE did love you and the times you shared were meaningful, so don’t concentrate on negating everything because of the way he changed in the end. Everyone saw the raging douche bag he transformed into, but you got out and forced him to stay out. You know you don’t want him in your life, because he would be blocking the way for anyone of true importance to step in.

You are a great person. You’re smart, loving, funny, caring, friendly, responsible and a achiever, amongst many other positive qualities. You’re going to get so much out life and become an even better person. So smile before you go to sleep tonight. And remember: Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life!

Whenever you’re feeling down come back and read this. And to anyone else that may be feeling the same way as me, just a little down lately, feel free to use my pep talk for yourself. Everyone in the world is beautiful in their own way and has a reason to be here. So smile about that 🙂
