I’m trying.

Today, I’m trying to be positive. I’m trying to see the good things in my life. I’m trying to appreciate what is for what it is and to accept what isn’t for what it isn’t.

Today, I’m trying to smile… not because I have to, but because I’m appreciative. I’m trying to be appreciative. I’m trying to believe that something better is coming, that one day I’ll look back on this time and thank god that I didn’t give up. I’m trying to believe there’s more out there for me. I’m trying to believe that one day, hopefully soon, someone will see me for who I really am and believe that I an make their world, their life, their office, their inner-circle better.

I’m trying to be thankful – both for what I have and for what I’ve left behind. I’m trying to tell myself the bridges I burnt were done so that I don’t ever try to go back, because I’m trying to remind myself that there’s no point in reliving the past. The past is the past for a reason… it needs to stay there.

Today I’m trying to be hopeful. Hopeful for health, for happiness and for the ability to lead a life that leaves me fulfilled and content. Today, I’m also trying to be grateful for what I have, recognizing the positives and also, recognizing that I am who I am for a reason.

Don’t ever change yourself for someone else, that’s what they say. I’m not sure who ‘they’ are, but I understand they’re very wise. So, it is because of them that I’m trying to be proud of who I am. I’m trying to believe in myself and diminish the voice of my insecurities.

Each day brings a new opportunity to make it better than the last, to be better, act smarter and to try. And today, I’m trying.

Oh boy, I am trying.

  1. Keep trying, stranger. Sometimes that’s all you do. And hey! If you’re not trying, you’re stagnant, right? Happiness and struggling are not exclusive to one another. This is your friendly (if redundant) reminder from a random person to be kind to yourself—but it sounds like you are, even if it takes work. Will continue to read more from you.

  4. You know how you sometimes tell me thanks for writing something positive that helped? Well, thank YOU for this post. Today has been a crap day for me and I wanted to give up. If you’re trying hasn’t helped you, please know that it has helped me and I truly appreciate it! This was exactly what I needed after today. 💖💖💖

  5. I know it’s not easy but keep trying. Know that you are wonderful and powerful. I use to write myself notes about positive things my friends said about me. I placed them everywhere I can see and read them every day. These notes were reminders that motivated me and they helped me to know I was not alone. There are people who love me. I was the one who was judging myself the most. Believe in yourself and your abilities. You can do it. You are not alone.
