Hey Bloomers! 🌼 If you read my previous blog post about negative bias, you will know that our brains are hard wired to focus on the negative, and it is our duty to recognise and deal with that. The negative bias concept raises the issue that is going to be discussed in this blog post: reframing thoughts.
Hey Bloomers! 🌼 I have used the car metaphor before in THIS article, but today I am going to dedicate a whole blog post to it. As we draw towards the end of the year, life becomes busy. It seems as if there is deadline after deadline and no time to rest. However, in the midst of all the chaos, you have to see yourself as a car – and cars need servicing.
Hey Bloomers! 🌼 The beginning of a journey is extremely exciting and full of possibilities. However, as it usually goes, the journey begins to get difficult and the excitement wears off. And in that moment, you have to remember why you started.
Hey Bloomers! 🌼 One thing that many people forget or are sadly unaware of is the fact that we don’t have to live life the same. It may be difficult to come to this realisation, or fully tap into it, because it may require going against what everyone else is doing. However, it’s necessary because living life for oneself and living in one’s truth is what makes it worthwhile.
Hey Bloomers! 🌼 Has one thing ever gone wrong and ruined your entire day? Today we’re going to discuss a concept known as negative bias. Negative bias is responsible for a lot of bad days. My hope is that after reading this article, you’ll be more aware of this bias and hence not allow it to ruin your days. After all, it’s difficult to change what we’re unaware of. Or win a fight we don’t even know we’re a part of.
Hey Bloomers! 🌼 This blog post is about getting your head back in the game, and we’re going to use football as a reference point. (Liverpool of course 😌😂).
Hey Bloomers! 🌼 Today I wanted to give you a reminder to reflect on how far you’ve come. It’s a beautiful thing that we’re always looking for ways to improve the different aspects of our lives. Evolving is not only helpful, it’s necessary. HOWEVER, sometimes you just have to pause and reflect on how far you’ve come. You’ll be glad you did it.
Hey Bloomers! 🌼 As we go through our lives, we sometimes become distracted by what’s happening in other people’s lanes. These distractions make what would have been an otherwise bearable journey, absolutely difficult. I mean, how can you drive effectively in lane 3 when you’re concerned with what’s happening in lane 7?
Hey Bloomers! 🌼 This is Tanyaradzwa: 🚶🏾♀️She is walking to her car after a busy day at work. Suddenly, she falls. Is she going to stay there, on the ground, for the rest of her life? No. Common sense tells Tanya to pick herself up, and continue her journey to her car. In the same way, common sense should always tell us that even in more complex situations, the principle is the same: standing again after falling should not be a choice, it should be mandatory. We can’t allow ourselves to stay on the ground forever. (P.S. Yes, that’s that Tanyaradzwa from THIS post, she’s grown now 😂).
Hey Bloomers! 🌼 Today, I have one beautiful reminder: the small wins add up. Celebration and feelings of accomplishment don’t have to be reserved for the big wins only. This is because every little achievement that you make builds on to the next and before you know it, you have accomplished something great. So, don’t be dismissive of the small wins, they add up.
