Life is unpredictable.

Life is unpredictable.

Life is unpredictable. Good times won’t last so you need to capture them so you can focus on them at bad times. 

Just as good times don’t last, bad times don’t last either. I know it feels never-ending when you are going through a rough patch but believing that things will get better will push good things and times to the forefront. To do this, you need to become more aware of the negative thoughts you let in and stop letting them in. This may seem odd, but in being positive you need to outweigh the negative thoughts in your mind, so first you must be able to recognise the negative thoughts that trouble you every day. 

In the light of the negativity, you need to find a positive or something that can, or will be helpful if you let it, in the long run to the situation you are in. Just because the positive or helpful thing isn't working out right now, doesn't mean it won't. The more you do this, the more this kind of thinking will become natural. Soon your mind will operate more positively, no matter the situation. 

You're not alone with your insecurities. 

We all have something we don't like about ourselves. And you can fix them with plastic surgery (way too expensive) or you learn to live with your faults and hopefully turn it (or them) into a positive. Because if you don't, they will haunt you your entire life. Someone I know doesn't like the way they appear in photos because of their teeth. They only like their smile if it's with their mouth shut, so they incorporate that into most pictures taken. And it works. Take me - I always wanted brown eyes and brown hair - there's not much I can do about the eyes - granted I could go for contact lenses - but I think it's take me ages to work out and my eyes are better blue. But I did dye my hair which made me feel a lot more like me - I've always likened blonde hair to some form of perfection and I didn't want to be that 'perfect' girl anymore.
