I get many messages, asking how I’m always so happy and how I manage to always spread positivity on my social media. I have no clue, to be honest.
Why? Because I’m not always happy. And you know what? That’s completely fine.
Let me tell you a quick story of what happened to me earlier this week…
I woke up, feeling angry and tired and just unhappy. Just a few minutes after my Breakfast I hid in my room for several hours just strolling along on Pinterest, editing pictures and working on my new blog layout. In the meantime I was skyping with friends and family, being all funny and joking around. Except with one person. She saw me and new that I’m not okay, yet I said I was at the beginning. After talking to her for at least an hour and just crying out everything I continued with working on my blog. At some stage in the late afternoon, my stepmother came to me and said „okay, whats going on?“ I burst out into tears again, although I tried my best not to.
At the end, there wasn’t really a main reason, why I was so sad. It was simply not my day. See, I have those days too!
And although I spent all day in my bed with my MacBook, just before dinner was on, I went outside for a walk to get fresh air and believe it or not, I felt a lot better after that!
The thing is, that I don’t always show you. If I’m having a bad day I usually tend to share the good things going on in my life, as my goal is to focus on the good.
Yet, I always say, that the most important thing, when you think of publishing you own blog, is to always be yourself. Heck yes that’s dead right.
Anyhow, that doesn’t mean I’m not true to myself and honest to you, when I don’t let you know that I actually want to spend all day in bed crying for my mommy as I’m missing Austria (just to avoid any confusions, I’m not doing that right now)
Anyway, what I’m trying to say, is, that I do have bad days. Enough actually and if I happen to have one of those crappy days belive me, you don’t want to be around me ‚cause I can be a freakin meany – pants ( to say it out nicely)
But you know what? I need those days where I can be a pain in the neck. If I always have a smile on my face pretending that everything is rainbows and unicorns, I’ll explode one day (I speak from experience) and so will you!
Let yourself have a bad day. Be grumpy, be tired and last but not least be YOU!
We’re all just people mastering our life in this mad world, it’s completely normal. Now, I’m not encouraging you, to become a grouchy person, as in those moments you should never forget to target your happy days, but I’m encouraging you to be human!
My Friend once said something to me, which I will always keep in my mind:
„You’re human and not a machine. Humans don’t make everything right and sometimes they just don’t work. And not to mention – sometimes even machines don’t work“
