Hello beautiful readers. I hope you are all well and staying safe. I have enjoyed a few weeks off from blogging, purely because I just needed some time away from my screens and also to find some inspiration to bring better content that is going to serve you, rather than just throwing something together. I have personally found the last few weeks pretty tough mentally, which after speaking to a lot of people, I know I am not alone in feeling. The last few months have been a total physical, mental and emotional rollercoaster for EVERYONE with this crazy time we are enduring. Little piece of advice here… if you are feeling like this… take some time away from social media and get back to nature a little more. Trust me, it will do you the world of good. Now I have done this, I am starting to feel so much better and have found my inspiration again and feel totally motivated to get going a little more and basically get on with life, albeit a tad differently.
I think a lot of changes have happened in so many of our lives recently and we have had the biggest mindset shift of our lives, mainly down to a global pandemic, where for the first time everyone has been experiencing the same hardship at the same time. I have learnt so many things from the pandemic and being in lockdown, which I am going to put in its own blog post, however the main one is about the souls in my life and the tribe I choose to be around. I heard this amazing quote on one of my business trainings last week and it was very much a right time right place moment as it was exactly what I needed to hear!
YOUR VIBE ATTRACTS YOUR TRIBE
One of the biggest lessons I have learnt in the last few months is the importance of the amazing people I have in my life and the value of what they bring, as well as of course what I can do for them. My family has always been my number one priority, but the extent to which this is true has been heightened incredibly throughout this process as well as the importance of the friends I have in my life. I have been doing a lot of work on my mindset and my personal thoughts throughout the lockdown and have already noticed how much it is having a positive impact on me. I bounce back from sad moments so much more quickly, always try to see the positives in not so positive situations and most importantly, have noticed how much less I sweat the small stuff and just simply get the f*** on with life. A big part of this is surrounding yourself with likeminded people who want to be in your life and mirror your thoughts and actions. I’m going be brutally honest, life is too short to spend time with people who bring you down. So, I wanted to pop a few pointers all into this blog post to inspire and encourage you to evaluate your relationships and the potential toll they could be taking on you. I am going to sum up a few key pointers here to get you thinking.
Each relationship you have in your life should be an addition and they should all add up to contribute to your wonderful soul. For example, your life should not revolve around a romantic relationship, nor should having one good friendship close you to exploring friendships with others.
Relationships and your tribe should always be there for you in a healthy and balanced way. I saw a quote recently on Facebook saying, ‘you know who your real friends are by who has been there for you at this time’. Now, this is not necessarily true, however it is not untrue. We have all had shit to deal with and I don’t agree that stressing ourselves out right now being there for everyone is what should be happening, but what is important is that if you have a real problem and need a friend, they are there for you. All relationships are about balance.
For me this is a big one, a real friendship is defined when you don’t speak or see each other for weeks/ months and when you do, you would have no idea!! So many of my friends and I have now started to see each other, and you would have no idea it had been so long!
Don’t be afraid to let go. The biggest lesson I have learnt over the last few weeks is that sometimes, every part of your soul needs you to just let go. If someone is draining you, and is simply difficult to have a relationship with, it is sometimes the healthiest thing to let the relationship go. This could be simply distancing yourself a little more or even a complete cut off.
Finally, being yourself is key. Growing and developing as a human being is obviously important and the relationships, we have in our lives definitely help to shape this, although being you is still your number one priority. Always be true to yourself and if you feel like you aren’t being you in any relationship, you know it simply isn’t right.
I would love to know if anyone else has been experiencing the same thoughts as me in lockdown and even has noticed the same huge mindset shift? Send me a DM on Insta and we can chat! >> @ladyhunterblog
