Project 2017 | March Update

Project 2017 | March Update

I honestly didn’t even know where to start with this because March has gone past in such a blur but here’s a little summary of my month and how I trued to keep up a positive mentality in my “Project 2017” positivity goal.  
March was a month that really tested me… I won’t get into details because I don’t put my whole life online, but the middle of March came with a bit of a shock, and things got a little shaken up in both my life and the life of some of the people around me.  At first, it was incredibly overwhelming and I was hit with a lot of confusing information all at once… It would have been so easy to go into my normal routine of shutting down and cutting everyone off and going back to my own little bubble where nothing can affect me but this really tested my endurance.  I shook it off, I powered through and it’s made me try a lot harder to look for silver linings in moments of sadness.  I’ve realised that it’s the times when life throws the worst at you that you need to shine the most light.  And honestly, making an effort to keep things light and positive has helped me a lot mentally.
I wrote that at the end of Feb/beginning of March I was feeling really insecure… I don’t know, I got real upset about my body and went like 3 steps back in terms of body-issues.  However, thanks to this new positive mentality thing I didn’t let it keep me down for long.  I went into a whole lot of detail about this in my post about accepting my body, but the gist of it is, my confidence has grown considerably in the last month.  I’ve learnt to accept the way that I look, love the things that I used to hate and celebrate my differences.  I really hope that I can carry this forward.
This new found confidence has lead to a real discovery of my self worth… and honestly I’m so much better off for it.  Being more self-assured has lead me to realise that I deserve to be treated with respect and receive the same amount of effort that I’m putting in to every friendship/relationship I have.  We all do.  Being sure of this has not only made me appreciate the true friends I have more, but also has made it easier to let go of those friendships that weren’t equal at all.  I’ve come out of this month with thicker skin and better knowledge of who’s truly there for me right now.  (I may actually write a post on this sometime soon…)
Overall, despite having some massive bumps in the road, I have to say that March has probably been the month where I’ve made the most progress in improving my whole mentality as a person.  I’m really proud of how far I’ve come and I can’t wait to see what I’ll be like at the end of the year if this is my progress after only three months (Will I actually be a stable human being?! Stay tuned…)  It just goes to show that hitting a bump in the road should give you more incentive to jump higher.  
Hope you all had a great March!  Feel free to share your own stories in the comments!
Lots of love,
Jas xx

    I’m sorry to hear it’s been a difficult month for you Jas, I really hope things settle down for you soon and that April is much easier and brighter for you. I loved your posts about self acceptance and loving yourself, I’ve found them really helpful, so thank you for sharing those and encouraging others to be more confident and self-assured, it’s a great message to be putting out there and I’m glad it’s given you more confidence too. Hope you’re well lovely! – Tasha

    Even though you said March has tested you, I like how you have still managed to find the positive! 🙂

    I do think when things get rough we tap (often surprisingly) into an inner strength we might not have known. Deep breath and into a new month.

      Yeah, I think after last month I’m a strong believer of that inner strength. Thank you!

    I think sometimes tough times make us realise our own strength. Roll on a new month for you!

    Hoping that April treats you better. From your outlook on life, I think that you’ll be okay. Keep fighting those inner insecurities. One day, you won’t even hear the whispers of doubt anymore.
