11 Signs You’re About To Make A Big Comeback In Life

You’ve had a rough time lately but you’re unbreakable. If you need proof that you’re on your way up and starting an awesome new chapter in your life, look for these signs.

  1. You’re more “whatever” than you used to be about the small stuff. You don’t let other people bring you down as much as you used to. Like your ex, for example. When he sends you a direct message on Instagram that seems to scream “I want you back” or he calls you and moans about his problems, you don’t let him get inside your head (or heart) and distract you from your ambitions. You’re setting your sights higher these days.
  2. You’re feeling good about life in general. You have a spring in your step and a positive attitude. That’s not coming out of nowhere! On some level, you know better and more amazing things are coming your way and you’re getting ready to embrace them.
  3. You’re no longer thinking about your ex. He used to occupy lots of headspace but not anymore. It’s so true what they say: time heals all wounds. Your thoughts are now occupied with other, much more important things. Thank you, next! When you’re properly getting over your ex, you’ll know by how you’re focused on other things and they’re capable of exciting you. Life starts to have more color and meaning than it used to when he was clouding up your thoughts.
  4. Someone else has caught your eye. For a while, it felt like your love life was a dump but now you’re finding that you don’t have to be tied to that tumultuous past. That baggage can stay in the past because new and exciting things (and people!) are charming their way into your life. Sometimes someone new comes into your life just to show you that you can still feel a spark. There’s still lots of love to be experienced in life!
  5. You’re loving being alone. You might be feeling those butterflies with someone new but you also love being alone. Maybe at first being single was scary and you wished it hadn’t been forced on you when your ex dumped you, but after a while, you really started to love it. It’ll take someone really special to make you want to give it up again, that’s for sure. It’s such a great feeling to know that you’re in control of your life and happiness.
  6. You feel really independent. Being single at times can be troubling. You might worry that you don’t have a support system in the form of your ex or whatever, but honestly, you’re thriving in your independence. That right there is a good omen of things to come. When you can look after yourself and back yourself, you can make things happen for yourself. You don’t need that loser on your speed-dial.
  7. You’ve started chasing a new dream. There’s nothing more invigorating than having a great idea in the shower and deciding to act on it. Maybe you have a cool dream of starting your own business or jet-setting to some exotic locations. Whatever the case, you’re feeling amped to go out there and make your life meaningful and fun.
  8. You’re not listening to the negative nancies in your life. It’s easy to feel down and out —just surround yourself with negative people. Once you move away from them, you clear up some nice space for positivity to enter your life. Without a good attitude and a feeling that you can achieve anything you set your mind to, you hold yourself back. Cut the strings and let those negative people loose. You don’t need them taking up so much energy.
  9. You’re focusing on you—everything else is secondary. You’ve made yourself a priority and that’s the way it should be. No, it’s not selfish, it’s a must if you want to live the life of your dreams that you deserve. Everything else can wait. You’re doing you now.
  10. You’re focusing on the reason instead of what happened. After a breakup, it’s easy to fall into a pit of self-pity. You might feel like you’ll never be happy again or you beat yourself up about why the guy dumped you but lately, something’s changed within you. You’re focusing on the good reasons why that a-hole broke your heart—so he could do you a favor and get out of the way of you having a beautiful life! When you shift your perspective and use what happened to you instead of feeling like you’ve lost something, you’re in the power position.
  11. You’re using your past as a platform. You even find yourself laughing about all the toxic guys you’ve encountered along the way when you’re out with your friends. That’s how much you’ve moved on. Only when you do that can you take charge of your future and destiny. The past is now a platform on which you stand so you can reach for greater things. Instead of holding you back, it’s launching you forward. Girl, you’ve got this comeback down.
