You’re doing okay.

Something we tend to not do a lot of is give ourselves enough credit for the things we've achieved in life. This can be the smallest thing such as making your bed in the morning to achieving an award for something you've worked hard for. Regardless of what it is, I personally have been learning over time to take more notice of my achievements. I'll tell you why it's so important...

.... Just to give you an insight to me personally, growing up I was always hard on myself, blamed myself for certain situations and I talked down to myself a lot. I'll be honest, I still struggle with this even till now... at 24 yeas old! It's only in the past year that I've realised just how much damage it does and I'm slowly getting out of that horrible, negative mental state. 

Being like this purely comes from lack of self confidence and not quite enough self love. I thought I had already reached that level of self love but boy was I wrong. My confidence however continues to grow and the person I was a year ago today has grown in confidence a lot! 

About 3/4 months ago now I made the decision to just make a change in my life and work towards becoming the best version of myself, physically and mentally. I've been going to the gym at least 3 times a week, my diet has improved and I'm learning to speak more highly of myself, acknowledge my achievements and simply continue growing in confidence. 

The key to me achieving all of this is being consistent in everything I do. At the end of the day, you're never going to reach your goals if you're not consistent with the things that will help you get there. Besides, motivation is only temporary, once that goes then that's where you're really tested. Your determination is what's going to get you through those 'meh' days. 

Anyway, so far I'm getting on well with 'becoming the best version of myself'', I still have my down days but I'm only human and that's bound to happen to any one of us. 

The point I'm trying to get at is to let you know that whatever it is you're trying to work towards right now, you're doing okay. Take a moment to just acknowledge the progress you have made. Instead of beating yourself up about something and getting 'caught up in the moment'. Just look at the positives and focus on that end goal... whatever it may be.
