Testimony Tuesday: I Got Myself Out Of My Funk

Hey hey! 

I know it’s been a minute since I posted a blog post. If I’m going to keep it real with you guys I have to let you know what’s been going on with me. So, I was absent for like 2 weeks from my blog. Meanwhile, I just recently praised myself for going so hard throughout the month of January, only to fall back off. But life happens right!? I actually had a long week of self doubt. For some odd reason I wasn’t feeling inspired or motivated. I didn’t feel like I was doing good enough in the blogger space. The funk I was in was making it hard for me to create content. Then the following week Mother Nature came and I was out of commission. During those 2 weeks I was not my happy go lucky self. I didn’t feel inspired any kind of way.  I felt like I wasn’t doing enough. I felt like nothing good was happening for me.

I made a blogging financial goal for myself for the year of 2019. January I reached my goal and I was so proud of myself. Like freakin out because I didn’t think I was going to do it within the first month of the year. A week went by in February and I wasn’t booking any campaigns, growing on my social accounts or progressing in my engagement. That’s what really started my funk. I started comparing myself to others and trying to figure out why my journey wasn’t like theirs. But then I had a reality check and came back to my senses. I realized that I control everything I’m doing. Social media will not control my happiness. Social media does not define my success. I need to find other things to motivate and inspire me if I want to take my blogging to the next level. After I got my mojo back, guess what happened!? Literally 2 campaign emails back to back. Now if that’s not the law of attraction, I don’t know what is. I started speaking happy thoughts and saying I am in control of my destiny when I get sad. My lovely mom sent me 7 words of affirmations to start my day and I wanted to share them with you guys. 

7 Affirmations To Start My Day. 

  1. I am Blessed!

  2. I am Favored! 

  3. I am Strong!

  4. I am Confident in Who I Am!

  5. I am Consistent; I Don’t give up, I Follow through + I Keep Going!

  6. I am Wealthy; Wealth is stronger than riches...it creates financial options in my life!

  7. I am Healed in every area of my life; Healed in my emotions, Healed in my heart + Healed in my body!

After repeating that, after realizing being down isn’t going to get me anywhere, I learned a valuable lesson. If you’re feeling down and out, if you’re speaking negative things over your life then that will be the outcome. God already has the outcome of your life written for you, it’s up to you to walk in your destiny. Don’t forget the power of the tongue is real. Speak positivity over your life today!
