Some of us are actually naturally positive, yet we are told through life from various sources that it is too "self focused" to look at yourself in a positive way. In fact, some religions say that you should be humble and think of yourself as nothing.
I am going to tell you something right now. YOU are more than you realize you are! YOU are not, and never were created to be "nothing" in this world. YOU make a difference, whether it be a positive impact on this world or a negative one. And yes, YOU hold that control ~ no one else. Your mindset and the way you think, the thoughts you entertain does indeed impact you and the world around you. In fact, it impacts your future.
The discontent and frustration that you feel is entirely your own creation. *Stephen Richards*
Amazing isn't it? Unplug from the things that steel and still your worth in this world. God didn't spend a gazillion years planning out the history of the world (which includes you) to allow your impact to be "nothing" and not "worthy" of notice. Did you get that?! You and your actions in this world matter, and mold a whole new tomorrow from the choices you make today.
I will tell you, when you are surrounded by others who are not quite into positive thinking ~ it can alter your opinion of things IF YOU CHOOSE to allow it. I can choose to enjoy every single moment of the day, or I can choose to allow circumstances to alter my view. I have done that for years ~ allowed other's opinions and outlooks to alter my view. One thing that has changed is ... I realize what you think .... you attract. You want to think the worst in things , it may not happen at that moment but you do indeed receive more negative things into your life.
There is an old saying "You are what you eat." While I don't believe that, I do however believe "You are what you Think!"
What are YOU thinking today?!
