Big Sean once said, “last night took an L but tonight I bounced back.” That’s what we have to do! Bounce back!!
Failed a final❌? The whole class❎? That’s okay. It’s not the end of the world. It may feel like it, but it’s not. Take the class over. You’ll get that good grade.
Someone did you wrong💔? Okay; it’s okay to feel a certain way and be hurt for a little but don’t let that turn into bitterness. Work out your feelings, bounce back, and boss up.
Running low on money☹️? Take care of your bills/priorities and wait for your next check to come in. Go into work with a positive attitude and a smile while you’re waiting.
The list could go on and on and on but the point is to not let things that can be minor affect you more than they should. Have you ever been stressed about something and it threw your aura off for the whole day? I hate that! We’re humans, we feel, we get upset, we know that someone/something is wrong but we have to overcome. We have to come up with solutions or use wisdom that we gained in a situation for the future. We have to say okay you did that but I’ll be good. I may be hurt right now but I’ll be good. I may be broke right now but I will be well off. I may have failed that class but I will graduate. I may not have a car right now but I’m speaking a new one into existence. I may have just lost my job but guess what I’m filling out apps all day knowing I’ll get something better. Once again, mind over matter. When we speak positive thoughts everything changes. That’s the art of the bounce back.
1. Acknowledge your feelings and/or frustrations. Having a journal can change your life. Even if it’s not a journal, writing stuff out on paper is magical. Write it out. Pray about it. Cry about it. Talk to your closest friends. Do whatever you need to do to release.
2. Strategize. Figure out what you’re going to do. You might not need this step; you might be fine after you write and choose not to stress about something.
3. Do it– Bounce back! You had your moment to be down but you’re good now! It is not about what troubles you, but how you get up and dust yourself off.
