Reinventing yourself

Once you’re done with all the self pity, sooner or later you start to realize that you’ve been sad for a long period of time. Although you might think that you’ll stay sad forever but here’s the good news: that is NOT true.

See here’s the thing: when you keep trying and wanting something to happen but it doesn’t work out the way you had thought it would, you end up being disappointed. Being disappointed over and over again translates into hopelessness and this is when the ” I’ll be sad forever ” phase kicks in.

It’s only natural. It may hold true for a finite period of time (for me it has lasted for months) to the point that I’m writing this now. But like I said months back i had thought it will last forever and it did not. Which is why i am here, writing this positive post because I am slightly hopeful now.

In my case I am pretty much bored of being sad. This is a good enough reason to make a change as long as it works for you. However change does not happen overnight. It comes with a routine, it comes with discipline, it comes with a plan.

The plan here is to start taking small steps. Sometimes we may or may not realize but these small steps instill a sense of achievement in us. My small steps include making my bed first thing when I wake up and have water. For this I have set a reminder at the time when i usually wake up. I will make my bed even if i know that I’ll be lying on it for most parts of the day.

To ensure that you will follow what you have planned, prepare in advance. Keep a glass of water on your side table so it serves as another reminder when you’re up. And with this I start my journey to reinvent myself!

How do you plan to reinvent yourself? What are the small steps that you will take in order to do so? Please share in comments below.

  1. What a wonderful post to read. So proud of you, K. For me it isn’t always about reinventing, sometimes you have to work with what you have and fine tune yourself. There’s always room for fine tuning. Fall in love with yourself and it will make the healing process that little bit easier.

  2. This is a great post! Very “in your face” but I like that. Other than that, I totally agree about taking baby steps. Baby steps is essential for reinventing oneself. I also think it goes hand and hand with self reflecting and self awareness. With those things combine, the success of reinventing oneself is a guarantee.

  3. We only just “met”, but I can tell you I can relate. My first step was REALIZING I was sad. I didn’t know.
    After that, the next step was sitting straight in a chair, three times a day, and taking three deep breaths. Sounded silly, but oh what a difference! I don’t even know who that woman was anymore!
    Great post! So brave!
