How Death To Flowers Fixed My Bad Days
Have you ever had a day so bad, not even ice cream, chocolate or your favorite wine could cheer you up? Bad days are super disruptive because it alters you mood and shakes your faith. Really bad, horrible days even cause you to question your purpose.
Even though you're mature enough to know bad days don't last; it can still be difficult to convince yourself to move past these feelings. This perfectly describes my emotional state last week. It was a draining week for me, both personally and professionally. I received some feedback at work that sent me into an emotional tailspin. I immediately began telling myself tales of unworthiness which caused me to over analyze the situation. I talked to my Mom and several good friends about it. I pretended to be okay with while talking to them, but after the conversations were over, I knew I wasn't fine.
The bad feelings brought on that day persisted through the weekend. I knew that I couldn't continue down this path, so by Saturday I devised a plan to snap myself out of the funk. You see a couple weeks ago, I bought a Good Vibrations box from Death to Flowers but hadn't opened it. I decided to finally opened it that Saturday.
At first glance the contents of the box appear modest, but these powerful instruments can be used to create affirmations and tools of self-love. In the box I received the following: a "You are awesome" note card, a rose quartz crystal, a box of blank affirmation cards, awesome tape, a fortune cookie and a praise hands temporary tattoo.
I used the affirmation cards to make my own words of inspiration to remind me of the unique value I bring to this world and of my self-worth. I created fifteen affirmation cards. I used the awesome tape to put the cards on my bathroom mirrors and in my daily planner. I also took pictures of it which I saved as the lock screen on my phone.
I'm so happy I waited to open the box because in waiting I appreciated this beautiful message from the universe so much more. Now I know there are differing opinions on the power and usefulness of affirmations, but I don't listen to them. I do what works for me. As an introvert, there's always a running dialogue in my head which causes me to question anything and everything I do. Affirmations and inspirational quotes have always helped reprogram my mind and bring me back to focus. I needed these written words to help me feel better. It wasn't an instantaneous fix but I'm on the road to feeling better. I highly recommend you check out the Death to Flowers website. Buy a box for yourself or a loved one who needs a little reminder of their greatness.
How do you cheer yourself up when you're having a bad day or bad days? I would love to know what works for you.
