When I was fighting depression, I remember hearing this expression and not understanding it at first. When I decided to implement it in my life, a whole new world opened up for me. Change the negative, self-loathing thoughts to positive, self-affirming ones. When you’re positive about yourself and everything around you, you begin to see the world in a different light. Your life today is what you make of it.
Be mindful of the tone of your thoughts. Change your thoughts, change your life. (Not my words.)
No matter what you’re going through, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. It may seem hard to get to it, but you can do it. Just keep working toward it and you’ll find the positive side of things. I’ve realized that I can always find something to look forward to. Big or small, it helps to get me through those rough patches.
Remember that the bad will pass and soon you’ll make it through to the other side.
When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one that has opened for us. -ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL.
Accept your flaws & also remember that just acceptance isn’t enough. There’s no positive outcome without making things right, that’s the only way you can improve yourself. You have to keep on working towards betterment of yourself.
Every difficult situation I’ve experienced has ultimately changed me for the better. I’ve grown stronger as a human being and I have been able to advocate for others who are still struggling to be heard. I can’t tell you what a privilege and honor it is for me to use my own pain to help people find strength and hopefully prevent unneeded suffering for many others. These positive rays of light were only able to come through the darkness because I allowed them to, because I was open to them, and because I didn’t dwell on my past or my pain. I simply honored it.
Find something positive about a struggle you’re facing and share it with someone who’s struggling. They’ll know something better is coming to them too. There is always an opportunity to turn a negative situation into a positive one as long as you are open to the possibility. (Not my words.)
Don’t waste time with people who don’t appreciate and value you for everything you have to offer. I see people keep chasing someone thinking they can change them or friends who don’t have their best interests at heart, but it doesn’t work that way. One of the keys to lasting relationships and friendships is MUTUAL RESPECT.
Don’t squander your time chasing anyone who has told you they don’t want you around. Evaluate all your relationships and weed out the negative ones. Go where you are wanted and stray from where you aren’t. Surround yourself with positive people and environments. (Not my words.)
We can’t be positive and optimistic every day of the year, it’s natural. Sometimes our light is as bright as the sun, and sometimes it can be a little faint. It’s important to surround yourself with friends who love unconditionally. These are the people we look to when we feel that all hope is lost. True friends light up our lives and rekindle the light within us when our hope is weakened.
Good friends help you find the important things you’ve lost; Your smile, Your hope, Your courage.
If you’re having a bad day, surround yourself with friends who will let their light shine over you. At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.
Anything you want to be wonderful at requires patience and practice. It’s as simple as brushing our teeth, which we hardly think about because we do it three times a day. By repeatedly doing a healthy habit we make it a regular part of our routine. It’s good to have healthy habits; the more you have, the better you will become. When you strive everyday to be better version of yourself, eventually you will be.
Figure out what you love and what is good for you and make it a habit. Every consistent approach results a positive outcome at the end. We are what we repeatedly do becomes excellence, then is not an act but a habit. (Not my words).
To attract better, you have to become better. You can’t do the same things and expect change. Transform your mindset. Upgrade your habits. Think positive. Be hopeful and consistent with your evolution.
Strive to be a better version of yourself. It all starts with you and how you feel about yourself.
