☺ Always end your day with a Positive Thought. No matter how bad your day may have been, tomorrow is a brand new opportunity to make it better. But if you go to bed in a bad mood you are likely to wake up in the same bad mood. Take a few minutes every day before bed to think about all the things you're grateful for, all the things you love, and all the things you're grateful for tomorrow (even if it hasn't happened yet). Think Positive!
☺ Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck. Everything happens for a reason and although sometimes we feel sad about not getting what we want, there is indeed a reason for it. This reason isn't usually easy to accept or to see at the time, but try to remember that the Universe it just looking out for you. The right things will come into your life at the right time. Have faith.
☺ Enjoy Time Alone. One of our biggest human downfalls is our inability to not only spend time alone but enjoy it. Most of us feel uncomfortable alone, because it is almost taught in our society. That, and it leaves us alone with our own thoughts and feelings and most of us would rather never face such things and live our lives suffering than to face those problems and move forward from them. Being alone should never make you feel uncomfortable, just as sitting by yourself in silence should never make you feel uncomfortable. Time alone is incredibly good for the soul, for healing, for moving forwards. Spending time is an incredible gift, so learn to enjoy and embrace it.
☺ Not all Attention is Good Attention. Most of us are insecure, it's just one of those things in life that we've grown up to feel. Working on insecurities is important. Realizing the negatives we welcome in our lives as a result of those insecurities is part of that importance. Attention is one of those. Not all attention is good attention and you should learn the difference so that you can move forwards instead of backwards when it comes to feeling good about yourself. Everyone likes to be complimented; compliments are nice. Needing compliments to feel good is bad. Likewise, not all attention from the opposite sex is good attention. For instance, degrading comments should never be welcome, even if in your head it gives you a confidence boost. This is such a deep topic that I will be writing a more detailed post this week. But this week try to become aware of Needing attention, Negative attention, and genuine loving compliments.
☺ Sing…just for the joy of it! Even if you think you can’t sing, do it anyway. Free your voice, have fun, and sing sing sing! Not only is singing fun, but it also teaches you to laugh at yourself, not take yourself and life so seriously, to be free, and it is a good way to help heal your soul. ;)
☺ Don't take on the Weight of the World. It can be difficult when we want to help people, because we usually can't dis-attach ourselves from their problems. We usually end up taking on the weight of another person's problems as if it is our own burden to fix for them. You are never responsible for someone else's happiness or sadness, so never take that on. Do what you can to help others but don't allow your world to fall apart and don't carry their weight. You have enough in your own life to work on without carrying someone else's. And the best thing you can do for another is to be strong and happy with your own life so that you are not only capable of helping them, but can also be an inspiration and a positive force in their lives.
☺ "The key to happiness is letting each situation be what it is instead of what you think it should be." ~Mandy Hale. Stress happens when the mind resists what is. When you learn to stop resisting what Is, then you'll stop resisting life itself. Accept things as they are and go with the flow.
