Sunday • 20Aug17 • SG "On the 64th day since I turn 40, I broke down, near giving up, surrendering to all the challenges thrown at me. I felt like I've failed at my own life. I got distracted, I allowed my negative autopilot brain waste my precious energy - I just couldn't focus & started losing hope. With whatever energy reserves I have within me, I just 'kept on swimming'. I dug deeper. I turned up the volume of my own personal cheerleader voice in my head. It was tough. I felt lonely. But I know MyMaker is with me. Living up to all the books, videos, podcasts, motivational quotes I've liked & posted, I just had to 'walk the talk'. On the 65th day, I consciously sent out my deliberate intention to the universe that no matter what, I choose happiness. My steps started to feel lighter, the vibes lead me to brighter moments.
And on the 66th day, another challenge crept in to sidetrack my focus. At 2am in my dark bedroom, @melrobbinslive
voice came to my head, "Decide or your brain will fail you. 5.. 4.. 3.. 2.. 1!" I turned to MyMaker for strength & asked the universe, "Is this all you gonna throw at us? We've been through so much just to get smacked down like this? It ain't gonna happen. I AM Stronger Than This!!" With all that buzz in my head, I chose to read up @thesharkdaymond
The Power of Broke just to take my mind off the negative vibes.
Hours later, after a very short bedtime, a stinky smiley face woke me up & said, "Good morning, Mommy!", grabbed my arms to hug her tight. Then in my head I started the countdown again 5..4..3..2..1! I whispered to myself, "I choose happiness!" And as I stood in my kitchen, making breakfast for my #girlchamp
, I know I've just found my very own affirmation, after all these years. So today, #TheArlynist
is restarting to be the best version ever. Even if it's just being better than yesterday." "The lowest ebb is the turn of the tide." - Henry Wodsworth Longfellow
