No Negative Vibes Here

No Negative Vibes Here

So 4 days ago I did a post with all of the negative vibes. I’m talking woe is me, pitty party, it was as though someone had vomited negative vibes all over the shop. And although I’m still very much in that place, I don’t want to be so I’m doing something about it.

Negative Vibes Not Welcome

One of my favourite Youtubers Tamara from The Glam and Glitter said something a while back that totally went over my head. But now, in my time of need I am going to give it a go. She spoke about keeping tabs on your complaining. For most of us, me included, complaining is just a way of life. It’s almost like I complain to start conversations sometimes when really there’s nothing to complain about “how bad is the weather today?”, “isn’t the traffic terrible” come on, own up . . how many of you are guilty too?!

Anyway, I’m following Tamara’s lead and I’m going to try my absolute hardest to not complain in January. And when I do complain I’m going to try and be more aware of it so that I can stop myself and look at how much of an issue the thing I’m complaining about really is. For instance, right now, I’m really cold . . so what?! I’m in a house full of clothes, go and put another jumper on!

To make things more fun and something I can reflect and hopefully learn from, I’m going to try and write down everything I complain about and come back and tell you in a months time what I’ve  been moaning about, big or small no matter how petty I will own up!

Let me know if you’re going to do it with me and make sure you come back in a month to see what I’ve been moaning about!

Who else is totally in love with my new coat? I got it from Asos, it’s so warm and tres chic. I put off buying it because of the £100 price tag but so glad I bit the bullet so now I can wear it and keep toasty all winter long.

    Glad to hear you feeling a bit more positive ??I go through days feeling like that too. We can be our own worst enemy a lot of the time, so we all need to start being our own best friend instead. That’s my resolution anyway ?✨x

      I love the idea of being your own best friend!!!!

    • 7th January 2017 / 10:00 am

      Exactly!!!!! Couldn’t have said it better myself!

    I think as British people we are just so used to complaining all the time! But you are so right, it can be so negative for yourself and those around you. You’ve inspired me to be more positive now!

    This is something that I find irritating about society. Always focusing on the negative, even if it is just moaning about the weather. I live in Scotland, it rains a lot in Scotland and, boy, do people like to go on about it. I know, the irony of complaining about people complaining. But I think these little moans build up and have a knock on affect on our overall happiness.
    Thank you for sharing this. I hope you have a great month and let the moody Joes rub off on you

    I am glad I’m not the only one who was feeling just a bit negative – I feel like I’ve been complaining so much these past few days! So not how I want to kick off the year! I’m going to join you on the positive train!

    I love your outfit – you look so chic and ready for anything!


    • 7th January 2017 / 9:54 am

      Thanks so much hun! I personally am in love with this coat!!!
      Ah yay glad you’re joining me! We can review it in a month!

  13. 6th January 2017 / 1:08 pm

    thats such a great thing to improve on. i remember becoming aware about complaining a few years back and since then have managed to decrease it rapidly. its actually now quite rare for me to complain at all and it’s resulted in being more optimistic, happier and an all around positive person. love your jacket btw!

    • 7th January 2017 / 9:54 am

      Ah this is what I was hoping would happen to me so I’m happy to hear that it helps!!!!
      I’ll be doing an update in a months time on how much I’ve complained!

  14. 7th January 2017 / 10:01 am

    Thanks so much hun! And yes! So easy to get caught up! Lets all review how negative we’ve been together in a month!

  15. 7th January 2017 / 7:10 pm

    I also love Tamara’s youtube channel, and her blog! Can’t wait to read the update next month on your not complaining journey! I’m loving this outfit, especially your coat. I’m so weak when it comes to long coats haha
