I feel that people spend so much of their life searching for answers. Searching for answers that aren’t always there. Personally I have been on a journey to find an answer and well I’ve quickly come to realise this answer can’t be solved so easily. A positive mind could be the solution that you’re looking for. I’m not saying you should just suck it up and be happy you can’t just do that but if you truly want to be happy you can be.
I often get messages on twitter asking me how I am so happy all the time, how I am so positive and so encouraging. The truth is it’s a decision to make. There are a lot of things that go on in this world that upset me. There are things that happen on a daily basis that I don’t agree with. I have a choice I have a choice to stay upset which will turn to anger and get me nowhere or I can use the negative situations or experiences in a positive way.
A negative mind is the key to a negative future. You can have all the negativity in the world in your life but still be happy. Be grateful for the things that you do have. Be happy for the blessings in your life. If you’re struggling to think about things you are happy for starters you are reading this right now which means either you have an awesome pair of glasses, contact lenses or you’ve got 20/20 vision (something I am jealous of). There are some people in this world who don’t get to experience the beauty of colour. There are people living on our planet who will never see the light of day. This isn’t something you should feel guilty about but just remember it is the simple things that make all the difference. Be grateful for those things in your life.
The mind is such a powerful thing, I’ve said it before and I will say it again. The thing we need to understand about our minds is the fact that sometimes it can out smart us and not in a good way. We are so intelligent that we over think, over analyse and in some cases under consider the wider picture. What is happening right now is very different to what could be happening even next month.
If you are struggling to keep an open mind I suggest when something goes wrong when you are faced with a challenge thing about the challenge. Think to yourself well this could be worse. When you are at complete rock bottom there is always something to be thankful for. It isn’t always the big things we need to remember in life sometimes its the little things that make all the difference.
You’ve got the power to choose a positive future. Don’t let the past taint you. You deserve to be happy. Now it is a choice that you need to make. It will take hard work but you can totally achieve it if you want to. No second guessing. No regrets.
