Cape Town bound but my heart is in New York



We all go through those days where we don’t feel positive or motivated and all we focus on are the negative things that are happening. This is normal and something we all do, don’t feel bad. Keeping a positive attitude is never easy, especially when things just don’t seem to be going the way we want them to however if we don’t try and keep a positive attitude, we wont have the drive or energy to work towards our goals

This is when you need to take a step back and think about all you have. We all have so much to be thankful for and to be grateful for and sometimes it takes some time for us to realize that.

1. Appreciate what you already have

Think about what you already have. What you have at the moment is exactly what someone else is dreaming and working for. Start every morning by thinking about all the things you have and be thankful for all that you already. This will not only make you feel happier but your day will start of on a good note.

2. Remember hard times are temporary

Are you having a bad day or a bad 5 minutes? The difficult time you are currently facing wont last forever.  We need to remember that there is always a solution, even though it doesn’t feel like it at the time. Tomorrow will always be a better day.

3. Think about your future goals

Think about what you are working towards and how you will feel once you have achieved those goals. When you wake up every morning, focus on those goals while getting ready, this will motivate you to get the day started and it will keep you motivated throughout the day.

4. Create a plan

How can you make those goals happen? What can you do to bring you closer to those goals? Focusing on implementing a plan to make those goals a reality will immediately improve your mood.

5. Work towards it everyday

Wake up everyday and make a concerted effort to work towards your goals. Do one thing everyday that will bring you closer towards your goals.

Consistency is key. Waking up every morning with the mind set of “Im going to work towards my goals and do one thing that will bring me closer to those goals” will help you to stay motivated and keep positive. I can guarantee you that it will pay off in the long run.

Until next time – Cape Town Brunette



    • Hello Pumpkin

      You have always been a take charge kind of person and Andre and I are so very proud of you. You have achieved so much in this year. You and Chris have paid for your Thailand holiday and you got your drivers license and you have bought your very own car. That you guys have done all on your own. Those were hard goals and you reached them all. Just remember that in life you will meet negative and positive people. Never be afraid to take a chance because otherwise you will never know what you can achieve. Chris is now doing plumbing as well and he is loving it. He is working very hard but at the end of the day he will look back with you once day and say that the sacrifice and hard times were so worth it. Surround yourself with positive people and refuse to allow the negative people to bring you down. So…..Take a chance and do what you love at every opportunity. See You Soon.

      Love from Mama Bear
