It doesn't matter how happy your life is, we pretty much all have a tendency to occasionally be a bit hard on ourselves. Be it through a lack of self-esteem or confidence or be it through things like self-comparison or anxiety.

Whenever I feel bad about myself or if I'm having a tough day in general, I know that it can be hard for me to see things straight and to have the right perspective. I can sometimes let something that is in fact pretty small affect me and then I'll go on to let even smaller things get to me even more than they normally would and then those things together will start to spiral and ultimately create something in my mind that seems much bigger and worse than it actually usually is.

And the mind is a powerful old place, the most powerful.

I have a quote that reads, "Change your thoughts and you'll change your world' hanging up in our office and I truly believe in it (though it doesn't always mean that I am winning when it comes to my handling my own thoughts .. sadly!).
