New Things On NHCouture!

These last weeks been busy ones for me, but I had the chance to pick up some things from Mac Cosmetics store. I’m preparing to model for my family’s presentation for her class final. I’m super excited about that! We have some different looks we have been looking at to try out. I will be sharing my experience from that soon.

Also I’m a new Avon Representative. I have included my link on here as well. I have some of their products that I still use and some new ones I am trying out.

I will be featuring some new pieces on NHCouture by Nikki Boutique very soon. I finally had the chance to look at some inventory.

I’m also making new changes to my site. Positive change is always good. So a lot to look forward to on NHCouture!

Nobody Is Perfect

Nobody has a perfect life. Everybody has their own problems. Some people just know how to deal with it in a perfect way. Life can bring on so many challenges and changes. How we choose to deal with them and learning from them, is up to us. I personally have to Thank God for bringing me so much growth, change, happiness, peace, wisdom, guidance and strength.

“Our Negative Coping Behaviors”

There are many possible negative things that can happen to us in a dayโ€”from the little things like coffee spilling, being caught in a traffic jam, losing our keys, having people criticize you, to the bigger mishaps like getting into a car accident, losing our valuables, breaking up from relationships, or losing our jobs etc.

Whenever something bad happens to us, itโ€™s easy for us to slip into one of the following behaviors:

Self-victimization. We ask ourselves โ€œWhy is this happening to me? Why am I so unlucky? Why doesnโ€™t this happen to anyone else? Itโ€™s not fair!โ€
Reacting in anger. We lash back at the situation, or even people around us, for whatโ€™s happening.
Self-blame. We make self-depreciating comments like โ€œWhy am I so stupid to have done that?โ€ โ€œOnly someone like myself can make such a dumb mistake.โ€
Slipping into depression. For those of us who have faced cases of depression before, we might fall back if weโ€™re not careful at managing our emotions.
Dejection or giving up. We lose hope, or worse still, we give up. We decide itโ€™s not worth it, that life is out to get us, and we should just stop trying altogether.

“9 Tips to Cope With Negative Situations”

The thing is, as long as you live in this world, you are subjected to the same chaos, the ups and downs, the good and bad, the positives and the negatives of life. You are not the only person facing this.

What sets you apart from others though, is how you choose to deal with this situation. Here are 9 steps to cope with bad situations and create something good out of them:

1. Release your frustrations. Donโ€™t bottle them out because you might just implode. Talk to a friend about it. A listening ear does wonders. Go exercise and release the tension. Journal it out.

2. Realize you are not alone. No matter what you may think, youโ€™re not alone in this. Somewhere around the world, someone else is thinking the exact same thing as you. Someone out there is feeling down and out too, wondering why she is experiencing this. Knowing itโ€™s not just you helps you to get out of a self-victimizing mindset.

3. Being frustrated isnโ€™t going to solve anything. The problem will still remain whether you go berserk at it or whether you think about it calmly. The former will create more problems as your agitation prevents you from making good decisions.

4. Know you always have a choice. Realize no matter what happens, you always have a choice in how you react. While you may not be able to control what happens to you, you can most certainly control your behaviors. You can face the worst things in the world, but if you make the choice not to let yourself be affected by them, you wonโ€™t be.

5. Objectify it. An incident is an incident; weโ€™re responsible for the feelings attached. Remove the feelings and look at the situation objectify. This will help us cope a lot better.

6. Focus on what you can do. Action creates empowerment. It brings possibilities. It creates results. By taking action, you are no longer a passive recipient. You are a conscious creator.

7. Ask for help if you need to. Itโ€™s okay to ask for help if it makes the situation easier. Remember, you are not alone in this (#2).

8. See it as an obstacle to be overcome. Life is a journey of learning and growth, and everything happens for a reason. Obstacles are the things stopping you from getting your goals, and if you keep overcoming these obstacles, youโ€™ll eventually get what you want.

9. Identify the lesson learned. There are always things to be learned from every situation. For me, I learned to rigorously back-up everything Iโ€™m doing nowโ€”even saving files in different versions so I can still recover the last version if the latest version ever gets destroyed.

No matter what bad stuff life throws your way, as long as you cope with it constructively, nothing can get you down.
