The power of positivity can be our greatest tool in life. Every morning, when we wake up, we start our day with a choice. We decide to make it a good day or we allow the day to decide our mood. I am, on occasion, definitely guilty of the latter, but I'm working on improving that.
I've been trying to focus on the important things in life... Such as the fact that I woke up in the first place. Sometimes I just think about how lucky I am to have a bed to sleep in and a roof over my head.
My theory is this: By starting your day in a positive and thankful way it will allow your brain to think more positively throughout the day. If not first thing in the morning, just at some point in the day, stop and think of something you are grateful for. No matter how bad things get, there is always something to be grateful for.
The future of your day, along with the rest of your life, relies on your attitude. If you go through life focusing on the negative, your life will, in turn, be negative. If you go through life with a positive outlook, your life will reflect it. Too often in life do we get caught up in petty/foolish moments. Those are the times when we should just hit the pause button, take a step back, and find something to appreciate.
We have this one life and this one chance to make it count. Every second of every day is a new chance to create the happiness we so often seek.
“Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.” ― Mahatma Gandhi
