When you’re having a bad day, look in the mirror and say:
If they were to make a movie about my life, this would be one of the most interesting scenes because this is the part where I refuse to be defeated by resistance. This is the part where I choose to be a champion of imagination rather than a victim of circumstance.
This is the part where I refuse to abandon everything I believe in merely because things aren’t coming together for me as easily as I had expected. This is the part where I decide to dig deep and find something within myself that’s more substantial than fleeting anxieties.
This is the part where I choose to define myself rather than have my destiny assigned to me by chance. This is the part where I do my part. This is my moment and I choose to own it.
Then get up, get out, and get on with your life.
The existence of drama doesn’t make your story. The exercise of determination does.
P.S. You don’t actually need a mirror. Nor do you need to actually recite a positive affirmation like the one I’ve written above. If you’d like, you can just skip right to the part about getting on with your life. Because if you don’t have time for cheesy and fluffy exercises like this, then you definitely don’t have time to be sitting around brooding over drama.
