Things don’t always turn out as we expected them to. The place we find ourselves at doesn’t necessarily match the dreams and aspirations we held dear at the start of the journey. Expectation and reality can often be poles apart. But that’s no excuse for abandoning positivity.
A satisfying day starts with a positive mindset. What we think and what we then experience are inextricably linked. That’s not to suggest that we won’t encounter negativity; that our day will be all sunshine and laughter devoid of grey skies and doubt. It is true, though, that as we think then so shall we be.
Sometimes it can require effort to find the pluses among the flood of minuses that the world throws our way. Things rarely add up. Certainly the answer we get can be some distance removed from what we had anticipated.
Effort expended on making a day into a positive experience is not wasted. If we can find the good in today our chances of finding good in tomorrow are improved. A good and positive life is nothing more than a collection of good and positive days. In the final analysis it’s not what we have but who we are that matters. Who we are is all about who we’ve been and not about who we think we want to be.
It’s never too early to start working on developing a positive attitude…but it can quickly and unexpectedly get to the point where it’s too late.
None of us knows how long we have to live and we all want to find and hold on to happiness. Our happiness, however, is our responsibility. It’s something we find within ourselves. That’s a truth we sometimes find difficult to accept, challenging and confusing. Regardless, it remains a truth.
True, fulfilling and lasting happiness starts with positivity.
