Congratulations you have failed

Hello everyone. It’s been a while since I dedicated a few lines to you. I’m sorry, but I’ve been a bit preoccupied with my negative thoughts, which I try to turn into positive ones with my morning routine, which, by the way, is working really well for me. I told my daughter, “You should do the same as me, be positive, visualize, manifest, have your vision board, your morning routine, etc. I do it every day.” To which she replied, “And that’s how it’s going for you” hahaha. She’s absolutely right, but I don’t give up, and I will continue to be positive (well, okay, I admit that sometimes I have bad days, okay, bad months, okay, okay, bad years, geez, okay, bad lifetimes hahaha). I’m feeling quite humorous this morning, aren’t I? Well, today I’m going to talk to you about why I believe we should celebrate all failures and congratulate everyone around us who fails.

Let’s get started… Look, what I’m about to tell you, I don’t think is anything new or that I’m the first one to think about it. I’m sure there are thousands of self-help books that say this, but I’m telling you my version, my way, and what I think. On Sunday, October 1st, I turned 55, and I have to admit that I didn’t receive it very joyfully (I think I cried all day). First of all, I still have a lot of insecurities and fears, although I fight against them every day. But as I mentioned earlier, there are good days and bad days. This birthday has been a bit depressing in the sense that I started to think (I know, bad f*** idea).

Uff, Nuria, what the hell have you done in these last 55 years? What are you proud of? What have you achieved? And this is where I should have stopped and thought about everything I’ve actually achieved and what I’m very proud of. But no, Nuria doesn’t think that way. Nuria’s mind quickly erases positive thoughts and starts thinking… “Well, Nuria, you haven’t done anything, and everything you have done, you’ve done it wrong. You’re overweight, you have psoriasis, you don’t have a job, your kids need you but you can’t help them, you’re stuck taking care of your mother, your boyfriend of 8 years, who is 10 years younger than you, is going to leave you because you’re fat and worthless, all your friends have wonderful families, perfect jobs, paid-off houses, no debts, you still don’t know what you want to do with your life, your friends are almost ignoring you because they don’t want to hear about tragedies, and nobody knows how to help you.”

Okay, okay, I know that everything I’ve said above, while true and a part of reality, is a very negative perspective of reality and not exactly the whole reality (I still think we live in the matrix and I got stuck in the bad reality; there’s another Nuria out there, thin, young, rich, and powerful, hahaha). Don’t worry, you know I love to exaggerate and tell you everything. So why am I saying all this, and I’m finally getting to the point of this f*** post? We all make decisions every day (those we think are the right ones at the time). Some are right, and some are not, but they are all necessary for us to learn our life lessons and get closer to our destiny. It seems that I still have many lessons to learn, and I’m a bit stubborn. Okay, I’m getting to the point, what I mean is that even if we make mistakes, we are getting closer and closer to what’s right, and I think the people around us should be more aware of this and congratulate us for everything.

For example, they could say to us in the following way: When you get fired, “Congratulations, you did great, I’m really proud of you, you’re awesome”; when you have debts, “Congratulations, you did really well, creating all that debt, you’re truly brilliant”; if your boyfriend or girlfriend leaves you, “Congratulations, gosh, you’re so lucky, a new opportunity to find someone better.” Well, you get the idea (and say it in a serious tone, not sarcastic). I think that would help me a lot. So I encourage you to congratulate everyone you know every time they fail. If their business has gone down the drain, “Congratulations, my friend, you did really well, that business helped you learn everything you need for your next step.” If a family member has passed away, “Congratulations, you have another spiritual guide who will help you keep failing.”

That’s it for today’s chronicle…
