Bulletin: Making Decisions

Making choices and decisions require time, effort, knowledge, and patience. As we navigate and explore our options, we may find ourselves overwhelmed and strained from weighing the options that will determine the next steps we will have to take.

These next steps will challenge us in how we view ourselves and whether certain options outweigh the others.

As you weigh your options remember:

  • You are capable of success.
  • You are able to make the decisions yourself.
  • It is ok to ask for help.
  • It is ok to say no to opportunities that are not a good fit.
  • Give yourself time to think and evaluate.
  • Never make decisions to try to make someone else happy.
  • Make the decision based on what’s best for you.
  • Think about who you are as you navigate your options.
  • Think about your strengths, weaknesses, boundaries, limits, and truths.
  • Stay true to yourself as you make decisions that will change your life.
  • Be brave and courageous.
  • Try something new.
  • Be patient and kind to yourself.

Making decisions and evaluating options and choices is mentally draining. As we know better ourselves in each opportunity, we become better at making those choices and are content with those decisions after.

Keep trying. Stay motivated. Stay focused.

You are worthy of the life you see for yourself.

BayArt Article: 4 Affirmations to Remember When you Find Yourself with Self-Doubt

Link: 4 Affirmations to Remember When you Find Yourself With Self-Doubt

Self-doubt is crippling, paralyzing, and can prohibit the progress of what the immediate or far future may contain. While we wallow in our self-doubt and sink into procrastination, we think of every possible scenario that will lead to failure. We don’t see ourselves as people that are capable, able, or good enough for our own aspirations or ambitions. Self-doubt can be because of anxiety and constantly thinking about the future, or it can be because we are afraid and unable to see ourselves in our own potential.

These are four affirmations to remember if you find yourself in self-doubt…

#Writeitdown Declaration to Live by and Internalize: It is My Choice

I will make decisions based on what’s best for me and who I am.

I will know myself, love myself, and not work simply to survive.

I will give myself time and be patient with my process.

I will hold my head up when my answer is no and proudly keep striving for what’s best for me.

I will work hard and keep looking.

I will know who I am in this process.

I will not live for anyone else but myself.

My mistakes will be my own and I will take responsibility for my life.

I will be great.

I know I can be great.

SWT 100 Notes Note 30: Bravery Challenge

Task yourself with bravery today. Do something different, something that moves you from your comfort place into a place of change. Show yourself that change is possible and you’re worthy of peace from the change.

Move some things around. Organize. Plan. Take one risk. Know yourself enough to know what you can do and what you can’t. Become more of who you see yourself as.

Cut the procrastination. Do what you have to do, now.

Be brave with me.

Bulletin Challenge: What Do You See When You Look at Yourself?

When I look at myself, this is what I see. I see someone who is able, but troubled, someone who loves, who cares, a fighter, a creator, a writer, a empath. When I see myself, I see someone who is many things. I see someone who has the power to be someone. I see change. I see struggle. I see growth.

Look at yourself. What do you see?

Make sure to look at all parts of you. All the parts that make you someone.

Sometimes we look at ourselves and we don’t know what we see. We don’t know who we are.

Look at yourself and tell me what you see.

You are a beautiful multifaceted masterpiece. It’s not enough to look at our pain and let it define all of who we are. We have to break ourselves a part to get to every piece of jewel.

We have so much in us that we toss to the side. We must dig deep to find our drive and our will to continously know who we are.

Let’s find our light together.

Heal with me.

Comment below what you see when you look at yourself. Focus on everything (not just the good or the bad, but remember to be gentle with yourself). And as we begin to see, we begin to reflect and to grow in our self-acceptance.

#Writeitdown Declarations to Live by and Internalize: I will Tell my Story

Your life is your story, and your story gives birth to your purpose (or I should say you realizing your purpose). Who you are and what you are is what gives you life and what will make you feel joy. Find yourself as you navigate your story, find power, and know your greatness. Be open and vulnerable, but only when you’re ready. Be ready for all the opportunities that will open up once you venture into the realm of self-acceptance.

#MightyThoughts: I am Beyond Worthy

You are beyond worthy of life and of happiness! Sometimes it’s difficult to see it or believe you are.

I’m beyond worthy because despite all I face I keep going. I fight using my writings and through my creations. I’m able to feel peace through what I make. I feel proud of my progress and believe in my healing journey. I will keep going and I will keep fighting.

Why are you beyond worthy?

#MightyThoughts: The Intensity of Depression

Not everyday will be easy, and not every moment will be peaceful, but what matters is the fight you put for yourself to continue on in spite of the struggle. Although life may put you in quicksand, remember to be still and let those sorrows pass you. You will then realize you were never sinking. Find peace of mind when you’re alone in a shaky place. Relax your chaos, then rest. You won the battle.

Late Night Talk With Nina: We are Our Own Limit

We become discouraged when we’re faced with big obstacles as we venture into our passions. We feel that we can’t do it or we’re not good enough, but I’m here to tell you that you can. Whatever goal you set for yourself work at it, push yourself, learn, challenge your mind and your abilities. Create something beautiful. Become that awesome writer, that awesome musician, that awesome tech person, that lawyer, doctor, influncer, comedian. Become your own brand. Push past that feeling of worthlessness because you are able. We are able.
