This blog has been an escape for me so far. A way to delve into beauty, humor and the pretty parts of life, to forget about the things that I’m maybe not as happy with. But I have some important things I want to get off my mind today.
For this piece, I have an appropriate soundtrack. You may or may not be surprised to know that I’m a classical music fan, as well as chart/rock/pop/indie//whatever else. A friend sent me this while I’ve been revising, and it kinda reminds me of a film. It’s a piano piece, and makes me relax. Press play:
I Giorni – Ludovico Einaudi
I’ve acquired this book from my mother;
She bought it for me just after I first started uni. I was depressed (as in bawling every single night, not just a little sad). This book says that what you attract to you is what you give off. So, if you’re negative, you’ll get negative things coming back to you. For example, I spend most days in a place that hardly anybody wants to be, the atmosphere sucks and people are rarely cheerful when we’re there. All the bad ‘vibes’ (for lack of a less cringey word) join together and make everybody else miserable. And the cycle continues.
I’m not sure how much I believe in something like this, but it never hurts to be more positive. I want good things to come to me – new opportunities. And maybe they haven’t yet because I haven’t been giving off the right attitude to the world. I used to live in the past, still do to some extent. But also, didn’t realise that recently I have locked away a lot of good memories. They’ve started to fade, or be replaced by negatives. And this can’t be good for anyone.
NEW START: Letting the things I’m grateful for override the things I wish were better.
