Jennifer Blake: Shake it off.

Shake it off.

November 8, 2013


You are going to have days where something goes wrong and the situation is completely out of your control, and girl no matter how hard you wish you will not be able to stop it. Life is easier when you realize this, when you realize you cannot control every little thing that happens, no matter how hard you pray, hope, wish, or will it...at some point something will be out of your control.

Shake it off.

Shake off the anger, the hurt, the tears, the frustration, the disappointment, the stress, the self-criticism...there was nothing you could do.

Shake it off.

All you can do now is breath. Dance around to your favorite song and let it all go. Take away something from the situation. Think about how you reacted. Can you react to it better next time? More gracefully perhaps? Less self-criticism?

Shake it off.

Maybe it is the universe trying to tell you something. Trying to tell you to slow down & be grateful for everything around you. Maybe the universe is telling you that you need to put on Gilmore Girls, make some tea and curl up on the couch for the day. Maybe the universe is telling you to curl up in bed with a heartwarming book.

Shake it off.
Slow down.
Be grateful.
Some things are out of your control.
It will all be okay.
