We all have those days when nothing seems to go your way no matter how hard you try. A bad day here and there isn’t too bad, but what do you do if you’re stuck feeling slow and groggy for a while? Here are some tips on how to brighten up and get your groove back.
“Relax. You will become an adult. You will figure out your career. You will find someone who loves you. You have a whole lifetime; time takes time. The only way to fail at life is to abstain.”—Johanna de Silentio (via middlenameconfused)
“Through all his awkward homeliness, there is a look of transparent genuine goodness, which at once reaches your heart and makes you love and trust him.”—James Garfield, writing in his diary about meeting President-elect Abraham Lincoln in Ohio when Lincoln’s train journey to Washington, D.C. for his inauguration took him through Columbus, 1861.

Treat yourself the way you treat your favorite characters. Look into your back-story to understand your current plot. Sympathize with yourself. Recognize your flaws, and appreciate your strengths. Defend yourself. Cheer yourself on when you go into battle. Appreciate every relationship you make and always look for hidden potential. You’re the protagonist in your story. You’re the main character. You’re the hero.
